Many, if not most of us, are aware that vitamin D is necessary for proper absorption of calcium. Recent studies, however, indicate that our needs for vitamin D may go far beyond what traditional thinking has allowed.

We derive Vitamin D from the foods we eat and from the sun. Unless we don’t. There are several large-scale trials that are currently in progress. They could provide evidence that vitamin D deficiencies are more prevalent than ever predicted.

There is also evidence that Vitamin D deficiencies can cause or magnify a broad and ugly panorama of diseases that were previously unsuspected.   It suggests that supplementation with Vitamin D can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases that are associated with inflammation.

Surprisingly, in addition to those infirmities listed above, vitamin D deficiencies can be linked to diabetes, lupus, preterm birth, IBD hair loss and even depression. This article from HEALTH” describes a wide horizon of risk. It is astounding the number of potential effects that a deficiency in Vitamin D may cause.  Reducing exposure to the sun to reduce skin cancer risks and the modern diet make it almost impossible to assure enough Vitamin D is being absorbed to provide physical, mental and brain health, making the idea of supplementation advisable.

The quality of those supplements makes a huge difference, so before you choose, make sure you do your homework. Absorption is a key consideration. Use superior products.
