  • 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.
