Vitamin D is the hormone produced by the body when skin is exposed to UVB rays from the sun. As we return to humanity, we MUST support our immune system, or the littlest germ will have us Down and Out.
- Vitamin D is classified as a fat-soluble vitamin.
- 5000 Units per day is recommended.
- That means that the Vitamin D you make and consume from foods and dietary supplements is stored in fat tissue for later use.
- Without enough Vitamin D circulating in your bloodstream, it’s impossible to absorb all the calcium you need.
- Vitamin D also influences cell growth and immune function, which keeps inflammation in check and keeps your nervous system working properly.
- Strong sunlight triggers Vitamin D production in your skin.
- Many people do not produce the required Vitamin D, either because their skin is unable to absorb it, or they don’t spend enough time outside. Many also fail to get what they need from food and dietary supplements
- Adequate Vitamin D is central to a strong skeleton. With time, even slight shortfalls in vitamin D may impact bone strength.
- Then, Vitamin D forces your body to withdraw calcium from bones in order to maintain balance in the body.
So, do your immune system a favor and get Vitamine D from sunshine, nutrients, or Over the Counter, if necessary.
