Humans make 90% of our vitamin D naturally from sunlight exposure. That being said, we spend less time in the sun today than at any point in human history – which is why more than 1 billion people worldwide are vitamin D deficient. And what about those of us who live in winter climates? In the winter the days are short and the sun is low in the sky. As a result, we stay indoors more often and have even less sun. Visibly, not a good combination!
Vitamin D sufficiency, along with diet and exercise, has surfaced as one of the most important preventive factors in human health. Hundreds of studies now link vitamin D deficiency with significantly higher rates of many forms of cancer (notably with breast, prostate, and colon cancers)‚ heart disease‚ osteoporosis‚ multiple sclerosis and many other conditions and diseases. Vitamin D is believed to play a role in controlling the immune system, increasing neuro-muscular function (nerves and muscles) and decreasing falls, improving mood, protecting the brain against toxic chemicals, and potentially reducing pain.
Although sunlight is the best, natural source of vitamin D, supplementing is a much better option than letting ourselves become deficient. Dr. Burtis recommends taking 5000 iu/day for those who are relatively healthy.
As with all supplements, be sure that you are buying quality. At Burtis Chiropractic we offer only high quality pharmaceutical grade supplements. If you have any questions about Vitamin D3 or any other supplements please feel free to call us or stop by our office.
