According to Joel Fuhrman, M.D., Vitamin D’s “has now emerged as a contributor to many nonskeletal physiological processes, and functions have been attributed to vitamin D’s in the prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease, infections, autoimmune diseases, and more.”
North America Vitamin D’s Benefits
Vitamin D’s is also good for bone health, but it’s been found that over 50% of people in North America and Western Europe don’t get enough Vitamin D’s. You can take vitamins to get what you need, but getting sun is the natural way to get your Vitamin D’s intake.
I read somewhere that getting too much Vitamin D’s is toxic, so I checked out www.vitamincouncil.org, which said that there is a huge misunderstanding of Vitamin D’s toxicity in the medical community. In fact, the website said that after reviewing some patients that were in a study explaining toxic doses of Vitamin D, there was a major misunderstanding of Vitamin D itself, which helped promote a general fear of too much Vitamin D’s.
It’s best to consult your doctor about how much Vitamin D you need (as everyone is different) and what the best way is to get it into your body. www.vitamincouncil.org said that the average person should get at least 30 minutes of sunlight per day to get enough Vitamin D’s, but taking a supplement can give you enough as well.
