How Live Wise Naturals D3 Keeps You Healthy
Vitamin D deficiency is common around the world and many people (including physicians) are unaware that they may be lacking this important nutrient. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 32 percent of children and adults in the US were vitamin D deficient. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 50 percent of children aged one to five and 70 percent of children between the ages of six and eleven are deficient in vitamin D.
Promotes Healthy Mood and Cognitive Function
A number of studies have confirmed that vitamin D supplementation can help alleviate symptoms of depression. Most recently a study published in Psychiatry Research(1) found that vitamin D insufficiency could predict the emergence of clinically significant depressive symptoms. Vitamin D has been shown to improve a number of brain disorders including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. (2) Researchers estimate that among seniors as high as 95 percent are at risk of vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency and evidence suggests that vitamin D may be an important factor is successful prevention.
Positively Influences Brain Disorders such as Autism
Studies have shown a correlation between the rising incidence of autism and the rising incidence of vitamin D deficiency. (3) Scientists believe it is worth noting that as the incidence of vitamin D deficiency has gone up, so has the incidence of autism.
Supports the Healthy Function of the Digestive System
Researchers recently highlighted the importance of vitamin D in the prevention of intestinal diseases, including cancer. ( Science has known for some time the importance of vitamin D to counter the effects of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
Helps to Reduce Eye Conditions such as Dry Eye and Macular Degeneration
According to a recent study published in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases "patients with vitamin D deficiency should be evaluated for dry eye syndromes." (5, 6) Vitamin D deficiency may also raise the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) if you are genetically predisposed to it. (7, 8) This study suggests that if you’re at high genetic risk for AMD, having sufficient vitamin D levels might help reduce your risk.
Supports Your Body’s Response to Inflammatory Diseases
We’ve already discussed the importance of vitamin D and its ability to counter the effects of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. There is additional evidence linking vitamin D deficiency to chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and other arthritic diseases.
Strengthens Your Body’s Ability to Fight Infections Including HIV
Vitamin D is well known for its ability to combat infections and strengthen immune function. Research suggests vitamin D supplementation may be an easy and affordable way to fight even more serious infections like HIV.(11, 12, 13, 14)
Protective Effects Against High Blood Pressure and “Hardening of the Arteries”
Science Newsline reports “The results add to the evidence that lack of vitamin D can lead to impaired vascular health, contributing to high blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease.”(15) Even if you’re “generally healthy”, if you’re deficient in vitamin D your arteries are likely stiffer than they should be resulting in high blood pressure.
Lowers the Risk for Autoimmune Diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus
At least a dozen studies have noted a strong link between multiple sclerosis (MS) and vitamin D deficiencies. (Research has also shown that most patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have some level of vitamin D deficiency. Those with lower levels also tend to have greater difficulty controlling their disease.
