VITAMIN D’S NEWLY DISCOVERED FUNCTIONS
Do you think about vitamin D when you’re catching up on the sun’s rays outside? New, exciting research shows that this little powerhouse vitamin has many newly discovered functions. Of course, maintaining healthy vitamin D levels is essential throughout all stages of your life. But did you know that vitamin D receptors are found in countless tissues throughout the entire body? That can only mean that vitamin D has a much greater impact on the body’s health than we previously thought.
IMMUNE CELLS HAVE VITAMIN D RECEPTORS?
We already knew that vitamin D was very important in helping to maintain healthy bones, bone growth, bone mineralization and absorption of calcium. Vitamin D
also supports cardiovascular system health. But now, eye-opening research shows that our immune cells have vitamin D receptors. What? Immune cells with vitamin D receptors? Yes! This means that getting enough vitamin D may be critically important to support our immune system health by helping to activate immune cells.
THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
The body’s need for adequate vitamin D has gathered even more attention lately. Although direct sunlight exposure on the skin initiates an excellent source of vitamin D, many people simply can’t achieve the vitamin D levels they need for their best health. Maybe they simply don’t receive enough sunlight or it’s tough for them to convert vitamin D to the active form. Either way, taking a high quality vitamin D supplement makes good sense for supporting optimal health.
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR IN A VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENT?
First, the preferred form of vitamin D is D3 (not vitamin D2) because it is better metabolized by the body. Second, look for a natural source of vitamin D3 (not synthetic) with at least 1,000 mg per dose. Avoid products with undesirable chemical tagalongs such as magnesium stearate (aquestionable excipient) or other chemical no-no’s.
