Countless studies show the benefits of Vitamin D3 are so great that everyone can benefit from the 'Sunshine Vitamin' but did you know that Vitamin D is not a vitamin at all? It's a HORMONE. It's widely assumed that you can produce enough vitamin D for yourself by having adequate sun exposure, hence the term 'the sunshine vitamin', but lets have a brief look at what's involved with that. Okay, basically, the sunshine hits your skin, where it's absorbed in the presence of cholesterol to create vitamin D that sits on the surface of your skin, in this form it can take up to 2 days to absorb completely into your bloodstream but guess what? As soon as you have that lovely hot shower at the end of the day, you wash it down the drain with your shower gel. Sad isn't it?
So what is the alternative, and really, how much are we supposed to take? There are a lot of supplements out there, mainly 1000iu strength. The first thing to look for is that it's in the form of cholecalciferol. Secondly it's of great benefit to start out on 10,000iu a day for three months to get your serum levels raised, then drop it back to 2000iu-5000iu daily. Why? Well these are the benefits of having such a high level of Vitamin D in your bloodstream..
Vitamin D helps regulate the immune system in a way that nothing else does. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, aids in the absorption of calcium in the bones as well as being a magnificent anti-depressant. There's a link between lack of sunshine
and vitamin D and this feeling of woe. Ever heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder? Where people get the winter blues?
