Vitamin D is key for good health in so many ways. You may know that Vitamin D is important for helping your body to absorb calcium and, by extension, bone growth. But most people don’t know that vitamin D deficiency has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, and other maladies.
The Vitamin D Council recommends that healthy adults get a minimum 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily -- more if they get little or no sun exposure. Sure, you could get vitamin D from sunshine, but it probably isn’t enough, and the American Academy of Dermatology recommends against it. That’s why Hayat Vitamin D2 tablets contain 2,400 IU: You can be sure you’re getting the recommended allowance of vitamin D every day.
Vitamin D Does So Much for Your Health.
- Strong bones from helping to regulate calcium and phosphorus. That means reduced risk of osteomalacia and osteoporosis.
- Reduced risk of contracting the flu.
- Helps insulin stability and glucose tolerance, reducing risk of diabetes.
- May help to slow the growth of certain cancers such as breast, prostate, and colon cancer.
What If You’re Not Getting Enough Vitamin D?
- You could be getting sick more often that you should or your wounds could be slower to heal.
- You might feel tired or depressed.
- You might have aches in your bones, muscles, or back.
- You might experience more hair loss than you otherwise might.
Long-Term Vitamin D deficiency could contribute to:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's Disease
