The Vitamin you can get for free!

The Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D is a unique vitamin that most people don’t get enough of. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 40% of American adults have a vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced naturally when the skin is exposed directly to sunlight.

Unless you live in the northern part of the country, 20 to 30 minutes of direct sunshine on your arms, legs, and face several times a week should be enough to provide you with the vitamin D you need.


Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D has long been recognized for its essential role in bone health. Working in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones, vitamin D helps promote bone mineralization.


Lack of vitamin D can lead to a loss of bone density, which can contribute to osteoporosis and fractures (broken bones). In children, it can cause rickets, a rare disease that makes the bones weak and soft, stunts growth, and, in severe cases, leads to skeletal deformities.

What many don't know is that vitamin D provides other health benefits, including the following:


1. Fights Disease Vitamin D plays an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system and regulating cell growth and differentiation. A study suggests that supplemental vitamin D may actually be helpful for cancer prevention, in particular prostate, breast and colon cancers.


2. Helps Combat Depression Research has shown that vitamin D might play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. In one study, scientists found that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed a lessening of their symptoms.


3. Boosts Weight Loss Some evidence suggests that getting enough vitamin D could enhance weight loss and decrease body fat. This study found that women who fulfilled their vitamin D requirements experienced more weight loss.

Researchers are also studying vitamin D for its possible connections to several medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, and autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis.


Who Needs Vitamin D Supplementation?

Most people don’t get enough vitamin D from their diets, as there are few foods that naturally have it. And depending on where you live, the time of year, and other environmental factors, you may not be getting the vitamin D you need from the sun either.

Here are some examples of people who might benefit from vitamin D supplementation: - Vegans who avoid foods that are rich in vitamin D. - People who have undergone bariatric or gastric bypass procedures, which can negatively affect the body's capability to absorb nutrients. - Older people who are less likely to spend time outdoors and whose systems are less efficient in synthesizing vitamin D from food. - People with darker skin tones who require more sun exposure to produce the same amount of vitamin D as light-skinned people.
