Why we should supplement our diet with vitamin D?
I would like to share some information on vitamin D, which can help to keep your body in the upcoming flu season in good health and also contribute to its rejuvenation.
Now everyone thinks security against colds and flu in the winter season, which is right in front of us, but not everyone knows that just adding some vitamin D to the diet may help to prevent the fall and winter afflictions, not to mention the fact that at the same time will slow down the aging process of our body .
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which is produced naturally in the body through exposure of the skin exposed to the sun. The active form of vitamin D plays an important role in maintaining the health of many organs and systems of our body.
You probably associate vitamin D with strong bones, but this vitamin plays an important role also in communication of the muscle with the nervous system, the proper functioning of the immune system and in fighting with inflammation.
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with many age-related diseases, including cancer, heart disease and inflammatory disease. Research shows that adults with high levels of vitamin D rarely succumb to colds and flu.
Up to 87% of the population is deficient in vitamin D. It is accepted belief that if we live in a country where the sun is missing, at least for the most months of the year, we do not have to supplement the vitamin D. Anything less vicious. A person should be exposed to the sun (at least arms and legs) for about 5-30 minutes a day to produce sufficient quantities of the vitamin D; and in connection with the spread of anti-cancer awareness, more and more people avoid the sun, or simply use UV filters. And it is the ultraviolet rays that transform cholesterol into vitamin D in a very complex process involving our skin, liver and kidneys.
Vitamin D supplementation can be used daily as part of our strategy for winter survival and health while enjoying the anti-aging quality of this vitamin.
