Features & Benefits:
Vitamin D is necessary for strong bones and muscles. Without Vitamin D, our bodies cannot effectively absorb calcium, which is essential to good bone health. Children who lack of Vitamin D will develop the condition called rickets, which causes bone weakness, bowed legs, and other skeletal deformities, such as stooped posture.
The heart is basically a large muscle, and like skeletal muscle, it has receptors for vitamin D. So perhaps it’s no surprise that studies are finding vitamin D deficiency may be linked to heart disease. Studies showed that men who were deficient in vitamin D were twice as likely to have a heart attack as men who had adequate levels of vitamin D. Other studies have found that low vitamin D levels were associated with higher risk of heart failure, sudden cardiac death, stroke, overall cardiovascular disease, and cardiovascular death.
Vitamin D may help increase muscle strength, which in turn helps to prevent falls, a common problem that leads to substantial disability and death in older people. Once again, a vitamin D dose matters: A combined analysis of multiple studies found that taking 700 to 1,000 IU of vitamin D per day lowered the risk of falls by 19 percent, but taking 200 to 600 IU per day did not offer any such protection.
Immune health: Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. There is some evidence that suggests people with multiple sclerosis who have higher levels of vitamin D in their bodies are likely to suffer less severe symptoms. According to Dr. Amy Lovett-Racke (Ohio State University), a study noted the symptoms of a group of people with MS and then found that five years later, those with higher levels of vitamin D experienced fewer problems.
Vitamin D is an important part of a healthy diet. It helps promote a healthy immune system, and being insufficient in this vitamin can compromise immune function.For people faced with a cancer diagnosis, vitamin D may help prevent tumors from developing new blood vessels. Vitamin D also affects cell growth, by encouraging healthy cells to grow and discouraging the growth of cancerous cells. Research suggests that women with low levels of vitamin D have a higher risk of breast cancer.
