The value of Vitamin D

7 Mar

the importance of vitamin D and the vital role it plays in the maintenance of good health is reinforced in the article below.  This may be one of the cheapest vitamins and therefore affordable to most.  It plays a role in osteoporosis prevention and even some forms of cancer.  According to research many of us here in North America do not get enough of the sunshine vitamin which is no surprise since three quarters of the year we live in the cool of winter and most of us hide from it by hibernating. Anyway check out the article and educate yourself and always decide what is best for you.

Vitamin D is back in the news again

19 May

Scientists have come out again with findings that Vitamin D promotes good health in many ways. But the study also found that breast cancer patients with low levels of vitamin D were much more likely to die of the disease or have it spread than patients getting enough of the nutrient, a study found — adding to evidence the “sunshine vitamin” has anti-cancer benefits. The results are sure to renew arguments about whether a little more sunshine is a good thing. The skin makes vitamin D from ultraviolet light. Too much sunlight can raise the risk of skin cancer, but small amounts “15 minutes or so a few times a week without sunscreen” may be beneficial, many doctors believe. While the vitamin is found in certain foods and supplements, most don’t contain the best form, D-3, and have only a modest effect on blood levels of the nutrient.

While for the general population taking extra vitamin D – 1000 mg is recommended during winter months, people with dark skin should take the amount all year round.
