Up until a few years ago Vitamin D was hardly given any recognition.
People probably wouldn’t have been able to tell you what Vitamin D did for your body, what benefits Vitamin D offered and what foods it could be found in.
In fact it was Vitamin C that stole the spotlight for centuries.
A few things that have been uncovered regarding Vitamin D in the past few years are:
(1) Vitamin D regulates more than 2,000 genes in the human body.
(2) Vitamin D affects the immune system more than we originally thought.
(3) Vitamin D also impacts the life cycle of cells in your body; cell proliferation and death.
(4) Vitamin D controls most of insulin production which is the chemical responsible for Diabetes.
Not only does Vitamin D regulate more bodily functions than originally thought such as insulin, cell life span and the immune system but a lack of Vitamin D also has been linked to many other ailments. Some of these ailments are depression, skin cancer, multiple sclerosis and heart disease.
Regardless of if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, by increasing your Vitamin D intake today you will feel much better tomorrow.
