Why You and Your Family Need Vitamin D Supplements

You already know that Vitamin D is activated in your body by sunlight. That’s great if you have it in your system, but 65% of the world’s population doesn’t! How about you? What about your family?

Do you know how it all works? Read on to see how a simple supplement can support your health.

Why You Need Vitamin D

Traditionally, you may know that Vitamin D assists in the development of strong bones. Without that in bygone days, many developed Ricketts. Bone density is facilitated by activated Vitamin D which only then, can absorb the calcium needed for a healthy skeletal structure.

Added to that is the minute-by-minute balancing act performed by your parathyroid glands in cahoots with your gut, kidneys, and skeleton.  The parathyroid glands will leach Vitamin D and calcium from your bones to keep the right levels of it in your bloodstream.

Quite honestly, today’s foods do not contain the same amounts of these vital nutrients as they used to. Vitamin D supplementation - organic obviously, goes without saying if you don’t want you and your children to become undernourished.

The Vitamin D Journey Through Your Body

The energy from the sun needs to connect with the cholesterol in your skin to spark the synthesizing process in your blood. Once your liver metabolizes it, your kidney activates Vitamin D, which accounts for it being referred to as the 'kidney vitamin'.

It goes without saying also, that kidney disease presents with Vitamin D deficiency in the body.

Vitamin D Deficiency Factors

You may think you’re okay because you are exposed to natural sunlight often. But here are some factors that often prevent Vitamin D from synthesizing in your body no matter how long you’re in the sun.

  • Subcutaneous fat - presents a barrier that makes it difficult for the sun’s energy to synthesize Vitamin D
  • Leaky gut, gut imbalances, and ulcers prevent absorption
  • Chronic infections cause your white blood cells to go on the hunt for every last drop of Vitamin D to combat infections of all kinds.
  • Metabolism issues - from diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure or cardiovascular disease require loads of Vitamin D to overcome.

Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms

The fact is that you and your loved ones are highly likely to be vitamin D deficient with or without the symptoms that only develop over time. If you’re struggling with any of the following, however, don’t wait to start supplementing:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression - mood changes
  • Muscle weakness - or cramping
  • Body and bone pain - bone density issues and back pain.

Furthermore, a lack of Vitamin D contributes to:

  • Diabetes
  • Infections
  • Heart disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • High blood pressure
  • Immune system disorders

How Much Vitamin D is Safe?

Too much even of a good thing becomes a bad thing. But even massive doses of organic Vitamin D 3 - as much as 40 000 units per day, is not toxic. Watch this YouTube video where Dr. Berg will put your mind at rest.
