Vitamin D is naturally acquired through sun exposure. The UV rays of the sun serve to stimulate the production of vitamin D in our skin. Unfortunately, very few of us get enough sun exposure, especially in the cold months. This has made supplementation with Vitamin D3 necessary. We have long known that adequate intake of Vitamin D is important, but recent research is asking if we should be getting even more Vitamin D. Extreme and prolonged deficiency of Vitamin D can result in rickets or osteomalacia in adults. But even a minor deficiency in Vitamin D can have negative impacts on our health, and increasing your vitamin D intake can have tremendous benefits.
Some recent research suggests vitamin D may be helpful in the treatment of autism, decreasing risks for many cancers, and greatly reducing influenza rates.2-
