THE SUNSHINE HORMONE!
So, what’s all the buzz about vitamin D??? Truth is vitamin D is in a class all by itself! When
your body metabolizes vitamin D it produces “calcitriol”, a seco-steroid hormone that targets
over 2,000 genes in the human body. The current research indicates vitamin D deficiency as a
major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of Cancer as well as heart disease, stroke,
hypertension, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis,
osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, Parkinson’s
and more! Breast and colon cancer are highly linked to low vitamin D levels.
Most everyone knows vitamin D prevents the bone disease “rickets” and is involved in keeping
normal blood calcium levels for bone health as well. You need to know how important vitamin D
is for your overall health as indicated in the list above. With rising Cancer occurrence continuing
to spiral this vitamin/hormone is vital in maintaining immune function, which protects us from the
formation of tumors and diseases. Vitamin D plays a significant role in immunity, blood cell
formation and helps normal cells in their functional changes, called cell differentiation –
a process that can reduce cancer risk.
Vitamin D deficiency is more common in northern latitudes, like the US and Canada which
makes supplementation more important for people living in these areas. Vitamin D is also
necessary to maintain blood levels of insulin. Research shows evidence that supplements may
increase insulin secretion for some people with adult-onset diabetes.
Ok so now you know how important this nutrient is for our health, what to do about it? Get
checked. Blood testing is the only reliable way to determine how much vitamin D you or your
child needs. We can help you; if you haven’t had your Vitamin D levels checked lately now’s the
time. It’s important to find out what your current levels are and if you are low. The cost of the
test is less than $50 and once you’ve been tested then a regime for re-establishing normal to
higher levels is next.
The absolute best prescription is to get a good dose of 15-30 minutes of sunshine daily which
stimulates the conversion to the potent form “calcitriol” for your body’s many uses and contrary
to popular belief, sunshine is good for us and we are supposed to expose ourselves
“reasonably” to its many effects. However there are factors that can interfere with nature’s free
resource; rain, cloudy days, the color of your skin, your location, and how much sunshine you’re
exposed to on a regular basis. Many people are supplementing with 1,000 to 3,000 IU’s
(international units) of Vitamin D2 or D3 daily, but according to the Vitamin D council that may
not be enough. The Vitamin D council suggests taking 5,000 IU’s for 3 months of D3 and then
get your levels checked. In specific cases as for example if you are diagnosed with cancer,
higher levels are recommended – up to 8,000 -10,000 IU’s. It’s important to know what your
personal health goals are.
