Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and is critical for human life. We classify Vitamin D as "essential, which when it comes to nutrients is a word usually reserved for those our bodies cannot produce; instead, we acquired them through our diets. It may may seem strange to say it's an "essential" vitamin because our bodies can convert cholesterol into vitamin D through exposure to sunlight. However, insufficient exposure can lead to severe vitamin D deficiencies. Low exposure to sunlight is of particular importance now, in the days of indoor living, living far north and south of the equator, and the use of sunscreen to avoid skin cancer. It has never been more important to acquire vitamin D from outside sources. Vitamin D has become essential.

Vitamin D is most famous for its role in the absorption of calcium for healthy bones, but did you know that it has many other jobs in our bodies? Vitamin D increases cognition, aids in heart health, and immune health. Obtaining sufficient amounts has also been indicated in reduced risks of a variety of serious diseases.

Most people are not deficient in vitamin D. However most don't have optimal levels of it, either. Due to its wide variety of health benefits, it is vital to check with your doctor to see if vitamin D supplementation is right for you.
