In the last 20 years, there has been tremendous research in the field of Vitamin D.
The findings are amazing, now we know that vitamin D affects almost every cell of every organ system in the body. New scientific research links Vitamin D deficiency to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, chronic fatigue, arthritis, lupus, M.S., asthma, thyroid diseases, dental problems and depression. Whew, kinda makes the case for keeping up your vitamin D. Unfortunately, this exciting new information hasn't reached the radar screen of some physicians, nor has it reached the curriculum of medical schools. Why? Because no drug company is behind it. It's not a drug, but it is a powerful hormone.
Now believe it or not, like I said, you can get vitamin D from sunshine. The sun's rays cause a chemical change to happen in your skin. This helps change the form of vitamin D in your skin to a type of vitamin D that your body can use. When you are outside in the sun for about 10-15 minutes,daily you are able to get enough vitamin D. Depending on where you live though, the sun may not be strong enough to help your body make vitamin D during the winter months, so you must get it from food or supplements. The best food sources of vitamin D are fortified dairy products and juices. Fish rich in natural oils such as salmon, tuna, and eggs are also high in vitamin D. Although it's great to get vitamins and minerals from food, taking a vitamin supplements is another way to get the right amount, even if it isn't as bio-available as food, it's easier to ingest larger amounts in supplement form. If you do choose to take a supplement, check the bottle and make sure one tablet provides at least 600 IU. You can't get too much vitamin D from the sun or from eating foods that are high in vitamin D. However, taking too much of a vitamin D supplement can be harmful. Research has shown that the maximum amount of vitamin D you should supplement with is 4000 IU daily, and the minimum is 600 IU.
So there you have it, keep your immune system strong , with a combination of sun, diet, and supplementation to make sure you get you daily IU's of this "magic" vitamin D. Good Luck...
