Vitamin D

Posted in General, Health

Vitamin D: Did you Know? It is needed in the intestine for the absorption of dietary calcium. It has also been found to be important in protecting the body from a wide range of diseases. This long list of diseases could be linked to vitamin D deficiency: several forms of cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, osteomalacia, some autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes, and even type 2 diabetes, depression and schizophrenia. How do we help prevent vitamin D deficiency? Well most of us already know, adequate sunshine, of course. I happen to think sunshine is so invigorating. It can really change my ho hum attitude attitude into a happy one. I don’t need to see documentation, a little walk out side can really give me a boost. (Sunscreen and or having yourself completely covered can block the adequate exposure to the sun.) Cod liver oil, good quality only, and or other supplementation.  Routine vitamin D screening has been rcommended as part of an annual physical.
