High Potency Vitamin D-3

Vitamin D is absolutely essential for strong bones. This is because vitamin D is necessary in order for the body to utilize calcium from dietary sources. Vitamin D deficiency contributes to a host of unhealthy conditions. Rickets, a bone disease caused by bone tissue failing to absorb minerals properly due to lack of vitamin D, leads to soft bones and skeletal deformities. Low blood levels of vitamin D contribute to such things as increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment in elderly people, severe asthma in children, and cancer.

Vitamin D is sometimes called the sunshine vitamin. The body produces vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is also found, naturally, in a limited number of foods. Some fish contain vitamin D. Egg yolks are also a natural source of vitamin D. If you shun the sun, or just don’t have time to play there, you may be experiencing a vitamin D deficiency. Unfortunately, as people age, their kidneys may be less able to convert vitamin D to its active form. This makes taking care of one’s kidneys very important, indeed.

Early symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include mild bone pain and muscle weakness. The symptoms, unfortunately, are often subtle. In addition, they are too often attributed to other causes and nothing is done to alleviate the vitamin D deficiency.

Some studies show that vitamin D may help eliminate the effects of depression. There is much conflict on this but for me personally, I feel it has helped.
