Why is Vitamin D so important?
( PART - I )
1. Studies have clearly shown that the population has become severely deficient in Vitamin D over the last 20 years. This is due to the widespread misconception that the sun's rays are harmful, damaging and should be avoided.
**Vitamin D is made from sun exposure to the skin. Things like fabric, glass and sun block prevent Vitamin D production.
2. Cancer Prevention - healthy Vitamin D levels (45-100 ng/ml) decrease the incidence of ALL forms of cancer by 30-60%. There is a huge database of studies documenting this.
3. Mood support, natural antidepressant and overall mental health and brain function. All forms of mood disorders and cognitive functions have responded positively to optimizing Vitamin D levels.
4. Immune system support and protection from or reversal of autoimmune disorders. The immune system cannot function normally without optimal Vitamin D levels, and autoimmune disorders have been clearly related to deficiency in this vitamin.
5. Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis and other degenerative diseases. It's all well studied, proven and documented.
6. Male and Female steroid hormone balance, overall energy, stamina, libido and performance enhancement. When Vitamin D is fully activated by the liver and kidneys, it becomes a steroid hormone.
