The Health Segment: The Wonders of Vitamin D

Let’s talk Vitamin D! There is a substantial amount of studies showing the multiple benefits of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is one of a group of vitamins found in liver and fish oils. Vitamin D is essential for the absorption of calcium and the prevention of rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults (both diseases defined as a softening of bones in either children or adults due to deficiency or impaired metabolism of Vitamin D).

Vitamin D also aids in strong bones and a strong immune system, provides calcium balance in the body that prevents osteoporosis or arthritis, regulates blood pressure, reduces stress and tension, relieves bodies aches and pains, helps to fight depression, improves overall skin health by reducing wrinkles, makes skin soft, strong and smooth, improves cardiovascular strength, and that’s just to name a few.Learn more at: http://www.newsmax.com/FastFeatures/health-benefits-of-vitamin/2010/11/12/id/370865.

Thankfully, you can get the full benefits of Vitamin D by boosting your exposure to sunlight, and including Vitamin D rich foods such as fish, cod liver, milk, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet.

Here’s to your health,
