The Incredible Benefits Of Vitamin D3!
It is estimated that 75% of the population is deficient in vitamin D. Recently, researchers have had a renewed interest in vitamin D, finding it provides various benefits to health not previously known. Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones by stimulating the absorption of calcium in the body. Without it, the body is unable to utilize the calcium supplied via the diet or supplements. Recent research has found correlations between low vitamin D intake and higher rates negative health issues.
Vitamin D is commonly referred to as the “sunshine vitamin,” but many people do not spend enough time outdoors to obtain this benefit. The body manufactures vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight; therefore, it is recommended that people living in northern latitudes, not exposed to the sunlight or who use sunscreen should supplement with the nutrient. Even though the RDA is set at 400 IU, many experts now recommend up to 2,000 IU, especially for those at risk for deficiency such as the elderly, dark-skinned individuals, night shift workers, those living in the northern latitudes or that lack sun exposure, and those who do not consume enough vitamin D-rich foods.
According to the latest research, vitamin D3 is 87% more effective in raising and maintaining vitamin D concentrations and produces 2 to 3 times greater storage of vitamin D than does D2. No matter what form you consume your body must convert it into a more active form, and vitamin D3 is converted 500 percent faster than vitamin D2.
The Simple Life Healthy Lifestyle Plan believes optimizing your vitamin D levels can be one of the most important steps you can take in support of your long-term overall health and fitness levels. There’s a great deal of evidence indicating vitamin D plays a primary role in your overall health. What most people don’t know is vitamin D is not only a vitamin; it’s actually a neuro-regulatory steroidal hormone that influences nearly 3,000 different genes in your body. Receptors that respond to vitamin D have been found in almost every type of human cell, from your brain to your bones.
A primary example of an important gene that vitamin D up-regulates is your bodies ability to fight infections, as well as chronic inflammation. It produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides, the most important of which is cathelicidin, a naturally occurring broad-spectrum antibiotic. This is one of the reasons why it can be so effective against colds and the flu. As you can see vitamin D, especially vitamin D3 is an incredibly important tool in your health arsenal.
