Vitamin D’s healthy effect on bones has been its most well-known property, but research shows evidence that vitamin D plays a role in immune health. Vitamin D receptors are found on several immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation
As on-going research is uncovering critical new roles for Vitamin D, scientists are finding that few people have blood levels of vitamin D adequate to support their daily needs. It is estimated that up to 60% of the U.S. population has less than optimal levels of Vitamin D. The main reason for this epidemic is that few foods contain any appreciable level of natural vitamin D.
Our main source of Vitamin D is exposure to sunlight. But in today’s world, few people will venture outdoors without being covered in sunscreen, which will effectively eliminate vitamin D production. The only sure way to maintain optimal levels of Vitamin D is through supplementation with Vitamin D3, the active form of Vitamin D.
Ongoing research into the benefits of Vitamin D continues to produce evidence that vitamin D can support overall health.
