MAIN Vitamin D3
*If you can only afford to purchase one supplement this is your buy!*
Did you know that about 200 million Americans are deficient in this critical vitamin?
Perhaps it’s because it’s been ingrained in our brains that we should be avoiding sunlight in order to prevent the onset of skin cancer or premature aging.
Vitamin D deficiency is linked to:
- And unfortunately other very serious diseases
Dr. Michael F. Holick, Ph.D., M.D. and Professor of Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics, at Boston University Medical Center suggests that the body needs between 2000 to 3000 IU of vitamin D each day from either dietary sources, sun exposure, and supplements.
Another respected expert Dr. Vieth firmly believes that there will be a dramatic jump in the incidence of disease specifically as a result of vitamin D deficiency, especially in people with darker skin.
- A growing number of studies have discovered that a deficiency in vitamin D is associated with an increased risk for heart disease because it is involved in regulating inflammation.
- Both types of diabetes may also be able to be prevented with adequate levels of vitamin D in the body. According to research, vitamin D can increase insulin sensitivity and decrease inflammation.
- The immune system can also be strengthened with adequate levels of vitamin D.
- Immune cells have receptors for vitamin D, which has been shown to prevent prolonged inflammatory responses.
- Vitamin D helps with reducing the effects of the common cold
- It also plays a role in protection against the development of autoimmune conditions.
Of course, SUPPLEMENTS are called "SUPPLEMENTS" for a reason. They are not called "REPLACEMENTS". The most effective way to reduce inflammation is by removing inflammatory foods from your diet. For a complete customized 16-week anti-inflammatory meal plan see: www.Main-Meals.com
*Potential Contraindication: Talk to your doctor if you are suffering from hypercalcemia or any disease that may contribute to hypercalcemia (high blood calcium) or if you are taking Thiazide Diuretics. Vitamin D may contribute to increased hypercalcemia, so for that reason it needs to be monitored. If you still wish to supplement with vitamin D. it is still possible so long as your vitamin D and calcium levels are monitored.
