You've heard me talk about how important vitamin D is for many years now.
After thirty years of being vilified by the medical establishment and the press, vitamin D is gaining new popularity as a nutrient that supports your overall health.*
Contrary to popular belief, recent discoveries suggest that it has far more beneficial effects on your body’s health systems than just on your bone health.*
Unfortunately, many people now are modern day "cavemen." Even when the sun's rays are strong enough to provide you with adequate sun exposure, you may be unable to get the vitamin D you require because you're cooped up inside all day.
So it's critical to your well-being to consider other options of obtaining this vital nutrient.
But first, allow me to explain just what an astounding impact vitamin D has on your entire health.
Every Cell and Tissue Needs Vitamin D
Research suggests that up to 85% of people could be deficient in vitamin D without even knowing it, leaving them with less-than-optimal health. In fact, some scientists call for urgent action.
Because current scientific research suggests that all cells and tissues in your body have vitamin D receptors – further concluding that every cell and tissue needs vitamin D for its well-being.*
Not only that, but vitamin D is responsible for the regulation of over 2,000 genes in your body.*
Vitamin D engages in very complex metabolic processes within your body, andscientists believe that it serves a wide range of fundamental biological functions relating to many aspects of your health.*
Your skin naturally produces your body's supply of vitamin D from direct exposure to bright mid-day sun with about 10 to 15 minutes of exposure each day.
But for decades, you've been the target of a misinformation campaign from the media and conventional medicine that has created a fear of sunshine. Therefore, most people either intentionally avoid the sun or smear on sunscreen that blocks the beneficial wavelengths that produce vitamin D in your skin.
Vitamin D Is Vital for You and Your Family's Health*
Having too little vitamin D may not show any obvious signs, yet vitamin D (specifically the vitamin D3 form) impacts an incredible array of support for your body’s systems and functions:*
- Heart health
- Cell formation and cell longevity
- Skin health
- Pancreatic health
- Aging process
- Sleep patterns
- Reproductive health
- Athletic performance
- Eye health
- Vascular system health
- Respiratory health
- Immune health.
- Healthy mood and feelings of well-being
- Weight management, including carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
- Hair and hair follicles
- Strong and healthy bones
- Proper digestion and food absorption.
Since healthy levels of vitamin D support and promote so many of your body's functions, a deficiency may mean your body lacks the tools it needs to keep you in optimal health.
As a result, making sufficient vitamin D is a very important issue for you to address.
The Ideal Ways to Acquire Vitamin D
Realistically, you have just three ways to obtain the vitamin D your body needs.
The absolute best way to get vitamin D is through direct sunlight on your skin. It's the most natural way to acquire it, as your body self-regulates the amount you receive.
But what if you live in northern climates where direct sunlight is unavailable for months at a time, as it is in most of the continental U.S.?
One alternative is to regularly use a tanning bed that utilizes UV-B rays. Whatever tanning bed you use, please be very sure it includes UV-B rays, so you get the exact rays that provide you optimal health benefits.
Another alternative is internal supplementation with vitamin D3 – with a caveat.
If you supplement with vitamin D3, it’s important to have your vitamin D levels tested routinely to ensure you do not get too much. With your health care provider, you can adjust your supplementation accordingly. This is a customized approach, as not one size fits all.
Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D?
Some population groups are more likely to have lower-than-optimal vitamin D levels than others. However, remember that 85% are estimated to be deficient. Are you one of the 85% or in one of these groups that may suggest deficiencies?
- Overweight people
Individuals who are overweight often have considerably higher needs for vitamin D because vitamin D is oil-soluble and hidden in their fat.
- Pregnant women
New evidence suggests that vitamin D levels during pregnancy may be critically important for you and your baby.
- The elderly
As you age, your skin loses the ability to generate vitamin D. Plus, the elderly tend to spend more time indoors.
- People with darker skin
People with darker skin have higher melanin levels, which block UVB radiation and limit the body's ability to produce vitamin D3.
What's more, vitamin D is very rare in foods and is only available in very limited quantities in eggs, liver and fatty fish.
If you're in one of the groups listed above or you spend your winters above 30 degrees latitude, we have something for you.
However, even during summer, many of us are modern day "cavemen." Most people get very little sun exposure during the summer. Your reasons might include working an indoor job during all the peak sunlight hours, avoiding the heat of the day or cultural dress codes.
You may even miss sun exposure on the weekends if it’s raining. If so, you likely do not receive the vitamin D your body needs.
Did you know that your car, home and office windows block most of the sun's wavelengths that your skin needs to produce vitamin D? So don't count on getting it indoors – or in your car.
Further, if you live in an industrial area with high-sulfur content air pollution (acid haze) blocking the sun's rays, your levels are likely low.
Your bare skin needs at least 10 to15 minutes of exposure to direct sunlight every day to produce the vitamin D you need. Windows, jackets and long pants also block the sun's valuable wavelengths.
