Let’s Talk About Benefits
If there is one thing to do in order to stave off the Flu (of any type) what would it be? The answer from several doctors is …add Vitamin D3 to your Vitamin Regimen!
The Sunshine Pill. Vitamin D3 is responsible for many functions in the body and one thing is for certain, we are not getting enough. Lifestyle is one reason and Autumn/Winter sun restrictions is another. In early October 2009, I listened to three medical radio shows back to back on local radio. All three shows were about Vitamin D3. While conservative convention says 2,000 IU a day is sufficient, many believe this is off the mark. We suggest 3 tablets of 1,500 IU a day for a healthy adult. This may be the single most effective flu prevention out there. While its true you can get the flu even if you are doing everything possible, we still feel that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. There is a vast body of science showing the many health benefits of vitamin D. You may be surprised to learn the important role that vitamin D plays in your health. When considering Vitamin D as a supplement, it’s important to know that Vitamin D3 is best absorb by the human body.
Maintains Your Calcium Balance Maintenance of blood calcium levels within a narrow range is vital for normal functioning of the nervous system, as well as for bone growth, and maintenance of bone density. Vitamin D is essential for the efficient utilization of calcium by the body.
Aids Your Cell Differentiation Cellular differentiation results in the specialization of cells for specific functions in your body. In general, differentiation of cells leads to a decrease in proliferation. While cellular proliferation is essential for growth and wound healing, uncontrolled proliferation of cells with certain mutations may lead to diseases like cancer. The active form of vitamin D, inhibits proliferation and stimulates the differentiation of cells.
Boosts Your Immunity Active vitamin D is a potent immune system modulator. There is plenty of scientific evidence that vitamin D has several different effects on immune system function that may enhance your immunity and inhibit the development of autoimmunity.
Blood Pressure Regulation Adequate vitamin D levels may be important for decreasing the risk of high blood pressure. More studies on vitamin D and hypertension are necessary. Vitamin D and Diseases According to the National Institutes of Health, vitamin D may play a role in the following diseases.
Vitamin D and Osteoporosis Osteoporosis is most often associated with inadequate calcium intake. However, a deficiency of vitamin D also contributes to osteoporosis by reducing calcium absorption. While rickets and osteomalacia are extreme examples of vitamin D deficiency, osteopororsis is an example of a long-term effect of vitamin D insufficiency. Adequate storage levels of vitamin D help keep bones strong and may help prevent osteoporosis in older adults, in those who have difficulty walking and exercising, in post-menopausal women, and in individuals on chronic steroid therapy.
Vitamin D deficiency, which is often seen in post-menopausal women and older Americans, has been associated with greater incidence of hip fractures.39-41 In a review of women with osteoporosis hospitalized for hip fractures, 50 percent were found to have signs of vitamin D deficiency. Daily supplementation with 20 800 IU of vitamin D may reduce the risk of osteoporotic fractures in elderly populations with low blood levels of vitamin D. The Decalyos II study examined the effect of combined calcium and vitamin D supplementation in a group of elderly women who were able to walk indoors with a cane or walker. The women were studied for two years, and results suggested that such supplementation could reduce the risk of hip fractures in this population.
Vitamin D and Cancer Laboratory, animal, and some preliminary human studies suggests that vitamin D may be protective against some cancers. Several studies suggest that a higher dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D correlates with lower incidence of cancer. In fact, for over 60 years researchers have observed that greater sun exposure reduces cancer deaths. The inverse relationship between higher vitamin D levels in blood and lower cancer risk in humans is best documented for colon and colorectal cancers. Vitamin D emerged as a protective factor in a study of over 3,000 adults who underwent a colonoscopy to look for polyps or lesions in the colon. There was a significantly lower risk of advanced cancerous lesions among those with the highest vitamin D intake. Additional clinical trials need to be conducted to determine whether vitamin D deficiency increases cancer risk, or if an increased intake of vitamin D is protective against some cancers. Until such trials are conducted, it is premature to conclude you should take vitamin D supplements for cancer prevention.
Vitamin D and Alzheimer’s Disease Alzheimer’s disease is associated with an increased risk of hip fractures because many Alzheimer’s patients are homebound, frequently sunlight deprived, and older. With aging, less vitamin D is converted to its active form. One study of women with Alzheimer’s disease found that decreased bone mineral density was associated with a low intake of vitamin D and inadequate sunlight exposure. More investigation on vitamin D and Alzheimers Disease is necessary.
