  • The Value of Vitamin D

     

     

     

     

    Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for our overall health. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that plays a vital role in the human body. It has many functions, and a lack of vitamin D can lead to many serious health problems.



    Vitamin D helps to:

     

     

    -Prevent bone fractures

     

    -Prevent falls in older people and osteoporosis

     

    -Reduce the risk of cancer, especially colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer

     

    -Reduce the risk of diabetes, especially in young people and in those living in high altitude

     

    -Protect against heart disease, including high blood pressure and heart failure

     

    -Reduce your risk for multiple sclerosis

     

    -Improve your mood

     

    -Improve your lung function.

     

     

    If Your Body Doesn't Get Enough Vitamin D:

     

    -Your bones can become weak and can break

     

    -Children can get "rickets," a disease that prevents their bones from growing properly, delays their growth, and causes problems with their immune system.

     

    -Adults can develop "osteomalacia," a disease that weakens the bones and makes them hurt, and also causes fractures.

     

    -Older adults can get osteoporosis, which doesn't cause pain, but makes the bones thin and easy to fracture.

     


    Vitamin D deficiency is widespread, and the deficiencies develop due to a lack of sun exposure, living in cold climates, and other reasons. Nature’s Answer Vitamin D-3 drops are important for the maintenance of health and well-being delivering 4000 IU’s per serving.


    Foods that provide Vitamin D: cod liver oil, cooked salmon, cooked mackerel, sardines, tuna fish, milk, margarine, pudding, cereal, eggs, cooked liver or beef, and swiss cheese.
