Why You Need to Know These Facts About Vitamin D

Most of us think we know what is best for our health. We try to exercise regularly, take our multivitamins, and read all the healthcare blogs. We even try to follow the newest wellness suggestions. We self-diagnose everything because we think we know what to do, we’ve got an internet of information, and we’ve got this. But do we really?

The frightening truth is that most of you are missing one of the most important things you can do to preserve your health and maintain your well-being. We’re talking about vitamin D, why you’re probably not getting it right, why sunshine isn’t enough, and why you need to change the way you think about this important steroid hormone. If you haven’t checked your vitamin D levels, now is the time to do it — before things get scary for your health, your bones, and so much more.

The medical community understands the importance of adequate vitamin D, and why having balanced and sufficient blood levels of this steroid hormone is so important. But far too often that critical information isn’t passed through to us effectively through our GP, or through the regular sources of readily available medical information, and its importance simply isn’t getting through to us.

Why do you need to check your vitamin D levels now

Bioactive vitamin D is more than a vitamin, it is a steroid hormone and is metabolized in the liver. Most of us know that it protects our bones and we’ve seen it listed on our milk cartons for decades, and that’s true. Vitamin D does help our bones.

But this important supplement has so many other vital functions, and the shocking truth you might not know is that many healthcare concerns can be prevented and alleviated by checking yourself and fixing the imbalance of this hormone level.

Nutritional supplements can easily come off as ghost stories, especially when they look like a cure-all. But it isn’t the case here. Although it is true that vitamin D can’t fix all that ails us, it’s a heavy lifter and it packs a mighty punch. The reality is, if you change the way you think now about vitamin D supplementation, and do something about your lagging levels, it could change your life.

Vitamin D can make you feel better, it’s a fact. Because this vitamin acts like a hormone, you need it for the delicate regulation of your mood, your glands, your estrogen, testosterone, and calcium levels. Higher blood levels of vitamin D have been linked to a reduced risk for many types of cancer.

When we become adults, we think that if we “get outside” enough that we’re covered for vitamin D, but genetically some people just have low levels of vitamin D, no matter how much they are outdoors. In fact, over 42% of Americans are deficient and there are other factors that can cause your levels to be low. Women going through menopause,

people with poor eating habits and nutrition, people who take certain prescription drugs, and those over the age of 65 all have been shown to have too low levels of vitamin D.

Some race populations are at a much higher risk for low levels of vitamin D. African American adults have the highest rate of risk for low vitamin D, with up to 82% being deficient. Hispanic adults fall into the same average low levels with around 70% not having enough D to do what the body needs.

Vitamin D has been proven to help every one of these health issues:
Cancer Prevention
Calcium Levels (Bone Health)
Immune System Function
Hair Growth
Mood, Anxiety, Depression
Inflammation
Sleep
Hormone Regulation
Can You Take Too Much Vitamin D?

Yes, too much vitamin D can be dangerous, causing kidney issues, bone problems, and more, which is why it is important that you have a board-certified doctor test and regulate your vitamin D levels, just as you would your hormones.
