Vitamin D-3: The Sunshine Vitamin
Why do I need Vitamin D-3?
Doctors found many years ago that children exposed to sunlight or those who took a Cod Liver Oil supplement were less likely to suffer from a bone condition called Rickets. Sunlight allows the body to produce Vitamin D-3, and Cod Liver Oil supplements naturally contain Vitamin D-3.
Since then, years of research has shown that Vitamin D-3 benefits the body in more ways than one. Vitamin D-3 is crucial for the metabolism of Calcium and Phosphorous, for the support of healthy bones and teeth, for providing added protection for immune challenges, for reinforcing healthy brain function, enhancing mood and cognitive function and much more.
Where does Vitamin D-3 come from?
Many know Vitamin D-3 as the “Sunshine Vitamin”. The body produces it during exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. When sunlight hits the skin it synthesizes to form D-3, which then circulates into the blood stream. Certain foods contain limited amounts of it. However, it may be difficult to get enough to supplement the body’s requirements from these sources alone.
Different skin tones absorb different amounts of vitamin D-3. Lighter, fair skinned people will need less sun exposure to absorb a sufficient amount whereas darker skinned people may require as much as double the amount of sun exposure. This can present a problem during the colder months of the year as well as during the work week when sun exposure is often limited. Because absorption of it differs among individuals, regular testing will reveal your body’s needs. It may be helpful to ask your health care practitioner to test for its levels: once at the end of winter and again at the end of summer. This determines how much your body manufactures through summer sun exposure, and quantifies the need of it during the winter months to maintain healthy levels.
