Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting our bones and preventing osteoperosis. But the benefits of Vitamin D reach far beyond our skeletal structure! Did you know that research is linking vitamin D deficiencies to increased risk of type 1 diabetes, and cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, esophagus, and lymphatic system?
Vitamin D (specifically the vitamin D3 form) impacts an incredible array of support for systems and functions in your body...
Since healthy levels of vitamin D protect 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.
Some population groups are more likely to have lower-than-optimal vitamin D levels than others. But remember that 85% are estimated to be deficient. Are you one of the 85% -- or in one of these groups that may suggest deficiencies?
People with limited sunlight exposure. During the long grey winter months in northern latitudes, you may need to supplement your vitamin D3
Overweight people. Individuals who are overweight often have considerably higher needs for vitamin D
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.
Dark-skinned people. Darker-skinned people have higher melanin levels, which blocks UVB radiation and limits the body's ability to produce vitamin D3.
