Vitamin D deficiency affects millions and plus! And I have noticed through my clients that the number has increased the past 2 years. It might be due to the malnutrition, lack of exposure to sun or maybe genetics problems.
This is why I decided to talk more about this topic.
Now ask yourself when was the last time you measured your vitamin D level? Definitively you have no clues!
The first thing you have to do is to visit your doctor ask about the test for vitamin D.
Vitamin D is crucial for proper bone growth, and deficiency results in osteoporosis, cancer, diabetes, depression and chronic pain.
Studies have shown that people with low vitamin D are twice likely to suffer from heart attack or stroke.
Vitamin D is essential in promoting calcium absorption in the body. Although very few foods in nature contain this vitamin, you can still get it from fortified products.
Some these dietary sources:
– Fortified milk: Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. You can’t find it in o fat products. Go for low fat milk.
– Fortified cheese and yoghurt
– Fortified cereals
– Oily fish like salmon and tuna
– Egg yolk
The main source of Vitamin D is sunlight. Ultraviolet light makes our skin synthesize Vitamin D.
People who are not exposed to the sun at least 15 minutes daily are prompt to develop vitamin D deficiency.
The darker the skin, the less vitamin you will receive from the sun.
So what are you waiting for? Come on, go out and enjoy the sun!
But watch out!
The rays of natural sunlight can’t penetrate the glass. You can’t synthesize vitamin D while sitting in the car or behind your window!
Chronic Vitamin D is not reversible, and you cannot rebuild the body’s bones and nervous system.
Schizophrenia? take D, depression? take D. It is also known in preventing colon, prostate, ovarian and breast cancer, as well as common cold.
Never take vitamin or multivitamin supplements before checking with your doctor.
Deficiency and toxicity are both harmful!
