Vitamin D Nutrition

All About Vitamin D

Vitamin D deficiency has been recognized as a major problem for Americans, especially women.

Concerned about fat, many people have decreased their consumption of dairy products like milk and cheese. The good news is that vitamin D can be found in fish-liver oils, eggs, and limited sun exposure (10 minutes a day) as well.

The absorption of vitamin D is enhanced by calcium and vitamin C, so try making a breakfast smoothie with orange juice, low-fat yogurt, honey, and a tablespoon of lemon-flavored fish oil. You’ll get a powerful morning punch of vitamins and protein and never taste the fish oil. To ensure that you are getting enough D, you can also supplement at night before bed with your dinner meal 700-1,000 IU D through pill form or easy dissolve strips from SOLVE STRIPS. If you are knowingly low in Magnesium you can also take this to calm your body before sleep. D is commonly low in most people who work indoors and are not exposed to the sunlight much throughout the day.

Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It’s a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. D is also a hormone sharing a responsible in a stable mood. In addition to its primary benefits, research suggests that vitamin D may also play a role in:

Vitamin D is actually a hormone rather than a vitamin; it is required to absorb calcium from the gut into the bloodstream. Vitamin D is mostly produced in the skin in response to sunlight and is also absorbed from food eaten (about 10% of vitamin D is absorbed this way) as part of a healthy balanced diet.
