The most important decision you’ll make today is what to eat. What we eat on a daily basis is the number one determinant of our health and longevity. Most premature deaths are preventable and related to nutrition.
According to Dr.Michael Greger, vitamin D might be the only supplement that makes us live longer. Vitamin D is something we can’t get enough of from our day-to-day diet. We make vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight. The primary source of vitamin D is sunlight.
Vitamin D helps maintain strong and healthy bones by retaining calcium. The tiny amounts added to cows’ milk or soy milk isn’t enough for optimal health. Signs of deficiency include joint pain or stiffness, backache, tooth decay, muscle cramps, and hair loss.
Vitamin D deficiency is common among people with darker skin, people over the age of 65, and people who have limited exposure to sunlight.
There are only two ways to get enough vitamin D, and that’s sufficient exposure to sunlight (UVB radiation that the sun emits) as vitamin D is made under the skin, and supplements. Depending on where you live, in the winter months, it’s difficult to get enough sunlight. The latest science supports supplementing during the winter months or anytime where you are not getting enough sunlight.
