Vitamin D is needed for bone health and it plays a critical role in the health of the brain and nervous systems, cardiovascular and immune systems as well as in pregnancy and child development.*
Called the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is formed naturally in the skin by exposure to sunlight. But when an individual does not get enough sun exposure, their body cannot make sufficient vitamin D. Vitamin D supplementation is especially important because it's hard to get enough during our long, dark northern winters. Vitamin D is a vitamin and hormone that stimulates the body to absorb calcium, and it is needed to keep bones strong.* People deficient in vitamin D levels tend to have more soft, thin bones, predisposing them to fractures. Vitamin D is especially important for the elderly because of their difficulty synthesizing vitamin D from sunlight as some medications interfere with vitamin D absorption.*
HOW DOES VITAMIN D WORK?
Vitamin D is produced when sunlight converts cholesterol in your skin into a form of vitamin D3 called calicol. Calcidiol, the inactive form of vitamin D3, is circulated and stored in the body. This is the form that should be measured during a blood test to check for vitamin D3 levels. Vitamin D3 is not just a vitamin, it is also a hormone. As a hormone, it regulates cellular production of important proteins and peptides.
WHY DO YOU NEED VITAMIN D?
Vitamin D deficiency is quite prevalent especially for people living in places like Canada, where the sun is not strong enough from September to May to stimulate Vitamin D production in the skin. After September , a rapid drop in vitamin D levels leaves most people susceptible to increased incidence and severity of colds, flu's, and infections and increased risk of degenerative diseases.
