Vitamin D3 Terribly Underrated

Vitamin D3 terribly underrated

Vitamin D3 terribly underrated because of Americans faulty belief system that they are getting enough of it from the sun. Surprise! You aren’t.” Why???” Your query. Well, you likely do not live anywhere near the equator. Now you may visit warm tropical vacations and get your cells stocked up on vitamin d, but you would need to make this trip fairly regularly to keep your cells plumped up with Vitamin D

I just want to take Americans by the shoulders and look straight into your eyes and say, TAKE YOUR VITAMIN D3 people! Please.

Vitamin D3 is a prohormone

When vitamin D3 is processed by the liver and the kidneys, vitamin d3 becomes a hormone.  That’s why unless you live near the equator you will not be able to get enough through the skin.  The darker your skin is, the more supplementation you will need. The further away you live from the equator the likelier you are to be deficient. That’s pretty much everyone in the US and Canada.  In Alaska, Eskimos do a pretty good job getting enough Vitamin D3 because of all the fish they consume primarily salmon.

food for thought

Let me tell you a little story about my granddaughter. Two years ago she was in the in the fourth grade, she was a little bit of a troublemaker and had enough sass to share with everyone around her. After doing some research, Vitamin D3 came to her rescue.  Her behavior was calmed her disposition was pleasant and we were all able to breathe again. She was quite a handful. We really wanted to avoid the whole ADD or ADHD diagnosis for her because overall, she was a real sweetheart.

Vitamin D3 every day may keep a heart attack away

Did you know that when a patient is admitted to the hospital having a heart attack, they are given an injection of 100,000 mcg of D3? This not only helps a patient during the episode but also improves the rate of repair and healing after the episode. (Read more about this research here)  So yes, it’s that important to take it as a supplement every day, it can keep a heart attack away.  When you have your regular annual physical, ask your Dr. to test your levels of D3.  This way you can see for yourself how much and how often you need to take D3. I personally do not leave it up to chance.  Some folks have their levels checked every six months others have it checked quarterly.

Mental health also benefits from D3

Put your heart into your health

I also let my mental health be my guide.  As for myself, I learned I’m especially vulnerable to Seasonal Affective Disorder aka as SAD.  Taking one capsule a day 5,000 IU per day really helps me get through the winter months.  I can be especially SAD after Christmas and New Years because these are my favorite holidays and for me, they give the winter months purpose and meaning. When I visit my Dr for my annual checkup, He checks my vitamin levels.  If I’m feeling overly emotional or depressed, then I know my D3 levels are low.  I will pop 2 gelcaps two for three days in a row 5000 mcg each to get to feeling better.  The kind                                                                                     I take is Spring Valley.

There’s a lot of research online you can read about this amazing supplement.  I just wanted to let my friends, family, and anyone who will listen know outright that this is a supplement you can not afford to ignore.  Next time you are at the store pick up some D3 your entire body will greatly benefit from this amazing supplement.
