Health and Wellness: Vitamin D

Everyone has heard of taking vitamin D, but most people do not know all of the benefits of taking it! Not only does vitamin D help absorb calcium from your diet, but it also helps with a variety of other internal functions. Vitamin D can help reduce your chances of having hypertension, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Studies have also been done to show that people with high levels of vitamin D in their system are 30 percent less likely to develop infections than those with smaller amounts of “D.” Vitamin D has even been proven to show a reduction in belly fat when combined with a healthy diet. Another benefit of “D” that most people do not know about involves hair growth. “D” can help revive receptors in hair follicles that might have previously been dormant. With all of these potential benefits of vitamin D, now the question is how to get enough vitamin D in your body. The easiest way to obtain “D” is from the sun. You can also get vitamin D from milk, cod liver oil, salmon, tuna, eggs and mushrooms. If you can’t get enough from those sources, you still have the option of taking a liquid or soft gel supplement. You can come into FRESH and buy vitamin D by itself, or you can buy it in combination with a calcium and magnesium supplement. Don’t delay, come in and try it today.
