A lack of Vitamin D has been associated with putting you at an increased risk to suffering from some very serious health conditions. What’s worse is that most people, like yourself, don’t even know they’re Vitamin D deficient, unless they pay for expensive testing or encounter the serious health consequences.
Lack of energy, gaining extra body fat, irritability and moodiness…All signs you may deficient.
What most do not know is that Vitamin D isn’t actually a vitamin but more of a hormone…Weird right? It’s actually what we call a pro-hormone, which is a substance that can be converted into a hormone.
Vitamin D receptors have been found in almost every tissue in our bodies, showing strong associations with our cardiovascular, immunological, reproductive, cognitive and metabolic health. Yes! That’s almost all areas of your health.
– Osteoporosis (Vitamin D is vital in proper absorption of calcium for strong bones)
– At least 16 types of cancers (including Prostate, Colon, and Breast cancers)
– Type 1 and 2 Diabetes
- Want to get sick less?
- Want stronger Bones?
- Want more “Nutritional Insurance”?
- Want to feel happier?
The answer to ALL of the above is: GET MORE VITAMIN D!!!!
1. Get enough Sun (The Best Solution)
Make an effort to mix sun exposure in with your daily routine. Have a lunch date to catch up with an old friend? Choose an outside table.
Start off with just 10 short minutes a day this week. Then next week bump it up to 20 minutes a day. Then 30 minutes a day the following week. The more skin you expose the better (and remember, incremental exposure is the key, not burning)!
In my opinion, this is the first step you take in the direction of adequate vitamin D levels. All natural is always the best way!
2. Eat enough egg yolks and oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, and tuna!
These foods contain Vitamin D3 (the type we make in our skin and eat in our diet). If you are completely lacking these foods in your current diet, add a minimum of 1-2 servings per week to start.
3. Supplement with a Quality Premium Vitamin D3
If you work in an office all day, don’t get much exposure to sunlight, hate fish, feel that you may be Vitamin D deficient or need a boost– you may want to consider a Quality Premium Supplement….
