Do you know that Vitamin D has a huge impact on our body’s ability to fight diseases caused by external and internal sources?
This vitamin is found in countless food sources, but millions of people are still deficient and their deficiency has not been diagnosed.
Vitamin D deficiency is called the hidden cause of many chronic conditions. For example, it is associated with many types of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, osteopenia, chronic muscle pain and even autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
Vitamin D regulates your genes and helps prevent cancer.
Vitamin D acts as a modulator/demodulator of hormones and genes in the body. It affects the body by modulating cell growth and restricting the growth of cancer cells. It also improves cell differentiation. Therefore, vitamin D acts as a potent inhibitor of cancer cell growth, and its deficiency is linked to the potential development of prostate, breast and colon cancers.
Vitamin D helps prevent infections, including flu and the common cold.
The study found that students who took 1200 mg per day in winter D3 showed a lower level of influenza infections.
Up to 80 percent of the required vitamin D comes from the sun every day. Unfortunately, most people are not exposed to enough sunlight, which explains why more and more people are deficient in this vitamin.
How can we increase Vitamin D levels?
Check your vitamin D levels through a special test. Normal levels are 10-55 mg, but optimal health levels are 40-65 mg.
Take the right type of vitamin D supplement.
Vitamin D 3 is the active form. Most supplements and recipes contain vitamin D2, which is not biologically active.
Be sure to consult your doctor before taking supplements.
