While thinking of vitamin D, it’s just like catching the summer ray. This vitamin sometimes called as “sunshine vitamin” because it produced in your skin in response to sunlight. But what if sunshine ray is harmful, what should you do?
Besides getting vitamin D through sunlight, you can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood. Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.
Vitamin D Deficiency is strongly linked to Chronic Diseases such as Cancer, Heart Failure, Diabetes, etc. Also studies show that 36 of our organs and tissues are regulated by Vitamin D, including our heart, lungs, brain, and bones.
However, not all get the sufficient Vitamin D requirement they need. In fact, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are Vitamin D Deficient (based on a study conducted with Hi-Precision Diagnostics, where 8200 Filipinos from key cities in the Philippines were tested for Vitamin D Deficiency).
The sun rays is harmful nowadays and too much exposing could lead to skin cancer. Indoor activities, clothing, skin color, aging, and use of umbrellas or sunscreen limit Vitamin D absorption too. It is also difficult to obtain from food (RDA of Vitamin D is equivalent to 40 eggs / 8 glasses of milk / 800g of salmon / 2 cans of tuna flakes every day).
