Why do we need Vitamin D?
Did you know that over 50% of Americans are deficient in vitamin D? One of the most commonly cited reasons for this pandemic is inadequate sunlight exposure. During the winter months it becomes particularly difficult to get enough sunlight. Vitamin D3 supplementation is an effective way to combat the many adverse effects of vitamin D deficiency. If you have dietary restrictions, gummy vitamins offer a tasty and easily digestible way to get your daily dose of goodness. Whether you are looking for vegetarian based or halal gummy vitamin, Salaam Nutritionals’ new D3 formula will meet your needs.
Traditionally we used to think of vitamin D in the context of bone health only. The truth is, optimizing your vitamin D levels may also help lower your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, certain types of infections, depression and even cancer.
Vitamin D helps with the absorption of calcium and phosphorus into the bone structure, both of which are vital nutrients that are necessary to create strong, healthy bones. Without sufficient amounts of vitamin D, neither calcium nor phosphorus is able to perform its function, which in turn may leave you with brittle bones and other serious conditions.
A growing number of studies identified vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for heart disease. Your risk of getting a heart attack can go up by as much as 50% due to low blood levels of vitamin D.
At the source of most autoimmune diseases, such as MS and Crohn’s disease, is inflammation. Keeping your vitamin D levels in optimum range may reduce inflammation and help protect against the development of these conditions.
If you suffer from depression, you should know that low vitamin D levels may be to blame. Vitamin D supplementation has been linked to improving mood and other depression symptoms.
Vitamin D can even help with reducing your risk of developing certain types of cancers. For example, numerous studies have shown that higher blood levels of vitamin D are associated with lower risk of colorectal cancer.
The good news is, vitamin D deficiency is fairly easy to correct, and doing so can have a profound impact on your health.
