How Vitamin D Can Revolutionize Your Health

Did you know that there is a vitamin that
can bring big improvements to your life? But, how can a vitamin offer so many benefits? According to a study done at the Newcastle
College, England, doctors are slow to identify and treat the deficiency of this vitamin,
and it ends up harming people’s health. Do you know what vitamin we are talking about? Vitamin D. This vitamin is actually a hormone, and a
very important one to your health. Have you ever done a test to know how your
vitamin D levels are? It can be obtained through sun exposure or
food. Did you know that the lack of vitamin D can
cause a lot of complications? Many people believe that vitamin D is only
necessary for the bone tissues. But that’s not true. Vitamin D also influences the immune system,
is great to prevent metabolic syndrome, chronic inflammations and infections. It also works on the treatment of autoimmune
diseases and on the cellular differentiation process, such as the many types of cancer,
etc. And, according to this study done by the British
college, 50% of English people have vitamin D deficiency, which favors the development
of many diseases. This deficiency can be even bigger in dark
skinned people because of the high concentration of melanin, which is able to dissipate 99,9%
of the UV radiation absorbed by the skin and hinders the vitamin D synthesis. Elders are also in the group of people who
need to pay attention to vitamin D deficiency. A medium-aged person with light skin, when
exposed to the midday sun for 20 minutes, produces around 2,000 unities of vitamin D.
An older person takes 2 to 10 times more time to produce this same amount. Did you know that? Besides that, if you use a sunscreen with
SPF 15 or higher, it will reduce by 99% your natural vitamin D production. Many people can argue that since they have
a good diet, they don’t need to worry about vitamin D. But the truth is, it doesn’t matter
because 90% of all vitamin D found in your body is produced directly by it from sun exposure. And that’s the reason this problem is usually
more serious in places that are distant from the Equator line since the sun doesn’t shine
with the same intensity and frequency in those places. And for children: did you know that babies
are born having a vitamin D stock? It is enough for them to be away from the
sun for 2 months. Amazing, isn’t it? However, after this period, it is important
to take your baby on walks for at least 5 minutes, around the midday sun, so your child
can get all the vitamins needed to grow up. According to the British study, under 25 nmol/l
(nanomole per liter) of vitamin D indicates a deficiency of this vitamin, while 25 to
50 nmol/l is insufficient. The ideal is above 75 nmol/l. It is worth it to remember that people under
50 are under a higher risk of mortality, and have bigger risks of heart diseases, heart
attack, type-2 diabetes, rectal colon cancer (third most common), and women also have a
risk of breast cancer. Besides that, another study suggests that
vitamin D deficiency doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases. Still according to this study, to improve
your vitamin D levels, it is necessary to consume a dose higher than the recommended
by the doctors today. It can be either a daily dose of 10,000 IU,
or a weekly dose of 60,000 IU; Another option is intramuscular injection of 600,000 IU of
vitamin D, which can be injected by a doctor or health expert, until you reach the level
considered good. So, are you curious to know how your vitamin
D levels are? Talk to your doctor and ask for the tests
to start getting all the benefits of this powerful hormone.
