Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiencies are being talked about more and more in the news, as more health issues are being linked to this deficiency. Every tissue and cell in our bodies have Vitamin D receptors so while Vitamin D is known as the bone Vitamin it also helps every cell and tissue in our bodies.

Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to play a major in almost every major disease. 17 varieties of Cancer, Osteoporosis, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Autoimmune diseases, Depression, Alzheimer’s, Fibromyalgia, MS, in fact there is research on over 200 diseases that have been linked to this deficiency and which may respond to Vitamin D supplementation.

Drugs that rob your body of Vitamin D are Acid Blockers, Antibiotics, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol to name a few.

Causes of Vitamin D deficiency?

People don’t consume enough in their diet with foods like Cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel and tuna. Sunlight exposure is limited because people are homebound, live in northern latitudes, sunscreens, sun protective clothing, occupations that limit sun exposure, individuals with darker skin the pigment melanin reduces the skin’s ability to make vitamin D.

Fortunately achieving optimal levels of Vitamin D is easy.

  • Be tested by your Dr with this test 25-hydrxyvitamin D
  • Eat foods rich in Vitamin D
  • Get Sun exposure
  • Supplement

The choice of Supplement would be Isotonix® Vitamin D with K2 

Combining the powers of vitamin D, K2 and D3, this particular vitamin supplement is able to support immune system health and help restore the normal absorption of calcium. I choose this particular product because of the special isotonic delivery system, and its ability to get into the bloodstream quickly. Boosting the level of vitamin D to an optimal range can help minimize the risk of catching the flu, colds or viruses, which can lead to secondary infections. The recommended daily Upper Limit for vitamin D is 10,000 IU, however, safety studies indicate that up to 40,000 IU may be safe for most people.
