The Sunshine Vitamin And So Much More.

The Sunshine Vitamin And So Much More.

When we think of Vitamin D and its importance to our health, we often make the immediate association to bone health.  This sunshine vitamin is SO much more as it is a precursor or a co factor to maximizing the efficiency of various tissues throughout our entire body.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and is produced naturally in our body when directly exposed to sunlight.

Vitamin D receptors are present throughout our entire bodily systems. This includes your bones, immune system, heart, skin, thyroid, stomach, colon, pancreas, and more.

 Vitamin D receptors are hair like structures that attach and protrude from the  cells throughout our bodies. It's analogous to how an antenna is attached to a television or its power source.  To optimize efficiency and effectiveness to power the source, there must be adequate levels of vitamin D present on these receptors to maximize performance.

For example, the T cells(killer cells) are critical to identifying and destroying invading viruses(pathogens) that affect our immunity. In order for T cells to be activated there must be sufficient Vitamin D present to deploy this surveillance system which protects us. Think of a soldier who heads out to battle but is without a gun to defend himself.

A person with low vitamin D levels can suffer from the following ailments:

  • SAD(Season Affective Disorder) or the Winter Blues.
  • Insomnia
  • Cognitive decline
  • Skin issues
  • Poor bone health
  • Circulation issues
  • Poor muscle strength
  • Hormonal imbalances

So how can we increase our vitamin D levels and ensure optimal blood levels;

  • Sunshine
  • Salmon
  • Swordfish
  • Tuna
  • Orange juice fortified with Vitamin D
  • Fish liver oils
  • Egg yolks
  • Cheese
  • Beef liver
  • Milk
  • Mushrooms
