5 Reasons Vitamin D Makes You Bulletproof!

The-Sunshine-Vitamin

  1. Never catch a cold or flu again

Vitamin D fights infections, including colds and the flu, as it regulates the expression of genes that influence your immune system to attack and destroy bacteria and viruses.

 

  1. Sprint through your day like Usain Bolt

Feeling tired and achy is a frequent complaint. While many are misdiagnosed as having fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, these are classic signs of vitamin D deficiency osteomalacia. The remedy is a combination of vitamin D and calcium rich foods.

 

  1. Improved muscle function

Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have shown a decreased risk of falls in elderly treated with vitamin D supplements, which may be due to an improved neuromuscular function in vitamin D-replete subjects. In most observational studies, vitamin D status correlates positively with muscle strength and postural stability.

 

  1. Strong like Popeye

Vitamin D is a strong stimulator of calcium deposition in bones, making them stronger and healthier. If you’re not getting enough vitamin D, your body begins to slow or stop depositing calcium into bones, eventually drawing calcium out from your bones back into the bloodstream.

  1. Decreased risk of Type 2 diabetes, cancer and MS relapses.

Measure your Vitamin D levels at home!

I found this on vitamindcouncil.org. You order a Vitamin D Test Kit that costs $50. It comes with instructions, a blood spot card, gauze pad, lancets, bandage and a return envelope.

You prick your finger using the lancet, and fill the blood spot card. Once you’re done, you mail the card back to them. Log in to their website to check your results in about 2-3 weeks.
