Description

Details

Vitamin D, also referred to as ‘Sunshine in a bottle’, is a steroid hormone and fat soluble vitamin that plays an essential role in supporting optimal bone and muscle health. Vitamin D improves immunity and helps protect against cardiovascular disease as it helps to reduce inflammation and arterial plaque production.

Usually 50-90% of vitamin D is obtained from skin absorption and the rest is from diet. Although sunlight exposure results in vitamin D production, recent research suggests that most individuals are no longer getting enough sun exposure to meet their vitamin D requirements and despite our high New Zealand sunshine hours, up to 50% of children and adults have insufficient or deficient levels of Vitamin D. Season, time of day, skin pigmentation, aging, and sunscreen use all influence the cutaneous production of vitamin D.

Sensible sun exposure (usually 5-10 min of sun exposure of the arms and legs or the hands, arms, and face, 2 or 3 times per week) and increased dietary and supplemental vitamin D intakes are reasonable approaches to ensure vitamin D sufficiency. Few foods contain Vitamin D, making it difficult to get the recommended daily allowance from diet alone. Oily fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel and tuna) offer the highest natural sources of Vitamin D. Other sources are cod liver oil, shitake mushrooms and egg yolks.

Healthy Gums
For decades I had been battling receding and bleeding gums that did not respond to any amount of daily dental routine or regular visits to the dental hygienist. A year ago I finally discovered that I was Vitamin D deficient and started taking Vitamin D3 (1,000IU) Capsules daily. Since then I have not had any signs of gum issues. I wish I had discovered these decades ago!
