The easiest and most effective way of getting vitamin D is through sun exposure. However for those many millions of people that do not live in a state where there’s sunshine most of the time there are other ways of getting vitamin D. For those that live in the sunny states, they must be aware that while you might be wearing sun protection, such as sunscreens, that protection also blocks the intake of vitamin D. Studies suggest that even those who live in the sunny states run the risk of vitamin D deficiency because they either spend most of the time indoors or they try to avoid the sun at all costs. This is a problem with people over 65 years of age and also those people with kidney issues, who may have a difficult time absorbing Vitamin D into their system.
Vitamin D is essential for the regulation of minerals such as calcium and phosphorus found in the body. It is also a key vitamin to be able to maintain proper bone structure. For those people that can’t get Vitamin D through the sun it’s important for them to take vitamin D supplementation.
Vitamin D is effective for treating a condition known as softening of the bones, this condition is often due to liver disease and at times caused by medications or poor absorption syndrome. There is a number of effective uses for Vitamin D such as bone loss prevention, weak and brittle bones, psoriasis, cavities, heart problems, and lung infections or infections of the airways. While there might be claims at vitamin D is effective for Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, increased athletic performance, eczema, heart issues comma, breast cancer, long term kidney-disease, and many others, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support those claims.
