Vitamin D

January 20, 2014 2

The winter blues got you down?  Vitamin D may be your answer. The only way we get Vitamin D is through sun exposure or supplementation. In the winter, we are not outside receiving the sun’s rays on our skin allowing us to produce Vitamin D in our bodies.  Vitamin D is needed to create the hormonal cascade in our bodies, effecting all aspects of health.

According to the Vitamin D council, the below are some of the functions of the body that Vitamin D helps with:

  • Immune system, which helps you fight infection
  • Muscle function
  • Bone health
  • Cardiovascular function, for a healthy heart and circulation
  • Respiratory system-for healthy lungs and airways
  • Brain development
  • Anti-Cancer effects

As for seasonal depression, there are many receptors in your brain for Vitamin D and scientists are currently studying the link between depression and low levels of Vitamin D.

To create and maintain health, the Vitamin D Council recommends these daily minimums for Vitamin D supplementation:

Infants: 1000 IU/per day
Children:  1000 IU/per day per 25 lbs of body weight
Adults  5000 IU/per day
