Health Benefits of Vitamin D

December 31, 2018

Vitamin D is produced by our bodies in response to sun exposure. To produce sufficient vitamin D, it is recommended that people spend at least 10 minutes in the sun 2-3 times per week. Scientists have found that vitamin D has a multitude of health benefits for us.

Health Benefits of Vitamin D

  • Bone health: we all know that calcium is very important for strong bones and joints. Calcium needs sufficient amounts of vitamin D in order to be absorbed in our bodies. Therefore, we can’t have healthy bones without generous levels of vitamin D.
  • Decreased flu risk: studies show that individuals who include vitamin D supplements in their diet during the winter months reduced their risk of contracting influenza by over forty percent.
  • Reduce the risk of certain cancers: vitamin D slows tissue growth in cancerous cells, which therefore reduces the spread of cancerous cells in the body.
  • Decreased diabetes risk: individuals who provide their bodies with adequate levels of vitamin D has reduced their diabetes risk by almost ninety percent.

Because vitamin D is used quite quickly in the body, its effects do not last very long, especially during cold winter months when sunshine isn’t as abundant. Vitamin D is important in maintaining our physical well-being, so it is important to enhance your vitamin D production by taking a supplement, such asĀ Thorne Research.
