Many people in the United States aren’t getting enough vitamin D. And, you may be one of them. If you have a chronic issue, you need to up your intake of this steroid hormone more than ever before.
A closer look into vitamin D shows that it has far more beneficial health benefits than we once have thought.
Long ago, one might have thought that vitamin D was just good for bone-building health, but countless research has shown that vitamin D can do more than that. For one, vitamin D is an infection fighter against colds and flu. And two, it can also protect you against cardiovascular diseases, autoimmune disorders, improve brain functions, balance blood sugar levels, help with skin issues, and even repair damaged DNAs.
According to one study, participants with lower vitamin D levels took longer to recover from the flu than those with higher blood serum level of vitamin D. The study also concluded that maintaining a blood serum vitamin D level greater than 38 ng/mL greatly reduces the chances of one acquiring viral respiratory tract infections.
This goes to show the importance of maintaining an adequate level of vitamin D during the winter months as sunlight is more scarce to reduce your chances of getting the cold or flu. Although you want to optimize your vitamin D levels during the colder season, make sure you are also getting enough vitamin D all year long.
Why is it important to have an adequate level of vitamin D?
For whatever reasons, we may become deficient. By having adequate levels, you ensure protection and prevention against diseases. Having the right amount can also act as a cushion should you fall ill, whereas a low level can’t do much as a buffer to protect you if you do come down with something.
Not only that, according to Dr. Frank Lipman, “Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to play a role in almost every major disease.” In fact, research also shows that a lack of vitamin D is linked to infertility and the inability for those to conceive during the winter. With that in mind, and anything related to that matter, it’s a good idea to make sure your vitamin D is at an optimum level.
What is an optimal vitamin D range?
After speaking with many medical doctors about this, the answer I’ve been given has been the same. One should maintain an “optimal” vitamin D range. According to Mercola.com, an optimal level is anywhere between 50-70 ng/ml. If you have a chronic issue like cancer or heart disease, you may need more between 70-100 ng/ml. Anything lower than 50 ng/mL is considered deficient.
“I’ve often said that when it comes to vitamin D, you don’t want to be in the “average” or “normal” range, you want to be in the “optimal” range. The reason for this is that as the years have gone by, researchers have progressively moved that range upward.”
How much vitamin D do you need?
How much vitamin D you need to take a day varies as each person responds to it differently. Dr. Robert Heaney, who has researched this vitamin exclusively for the last 20 years, says that we need to get around 5,000 – 6,000 IU’s (International Units) per day from “sun, supplements, and food.” However, that’s a loose guideline. You still have to take into consideration your age, where you live, your skin pigmentation, season of the year, and even your state of health to determine your optimum level. Since you may already know how to muscle-test, you can tune in with yourself to get an idea how much you may need.
Since the majority of us know that the body produces vitamin D through sun exposure, this makes vitamin D one of the simplest and inexpensive ways to improve immune function and prevent chronic diseases.
Although you may not likely go outdoors for long periods of time or at all during the winter in those freezing temperatures even though a Dutch study shows that you will still benefit from some sun exposure by taking a walk out in the cold, here’s a universal healing code to support you while it’s cold outside.
