An Easy Solution to Optimal Health
Why Take Vitamin D? You are not the only one to ask this question. In fact, only in recent years has Vitamin D surfaced as being a vital nutrient for overall health. Through testing, many people have been found to lack Vitamin D.
Why are so many people Vitamin D deficient?
The most common reason people are Vitamin D deficient is because of the lack of exposure to the sun. Over the last 20 years, we have been told not to go outside for an extended period of time without sun block. The media has done such a good job of educating the public that many people are not getting any Vitamin D exposure at all.
It is recommended that you get at least 10-15 minutes of unprotected sun exposure each day to reach optimal Vitamin D levels. The majority of people living in the United States, even in sunny climates, are Vitamin D deficient. Even in the summer months we struggle to get enough sun exposure.
It is estimated that 97% of the population is deficient in Vitamin D. Ugh!
So what are the benefits of Vitamin D?
It protects against:
- Colds and flu
- Cardiovascular disease
- Autoimmune disease
- Fatigue and achiness
- Bone health
- Many other chronic diseases…even cancer
The list goes on and on and on
Many call Vitamin D the “sunshine vitamin” for good reason.
