The winter months & shorter days can sure drop the bodies vitamin D level! Lower vitamin D levels mean higher risk for cardiovascular disease. We have so many studies that all point to vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for heart disease, congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease, strokes, high blood pressure and diabetes.
The fact that Vitamin D acts as a hormone has been essentially not taught to patients in the conventional medical model. A quick scan of the science will tell you vitamin D is involved in regulating more than 200 genes throughout the body. It keeps abnormal cells from multiplying in breast tissue and colon tissues. As you get older you you absorb less vitamin D from diet and produce less vitamin D in the skin and if you are not going outside in the early mornings you are at risk for many diseases from low levels of vitamin D. If you are over weight or obese you are at risk for low vitamin D levels because fat cells absorb vitamin D and keep it from circulating throughout the bloodstream.
REMEMBER: Sunscreen will block the vitamin D so get out early in the morning for a long walk while the sun rays are not so intense. You could also try liquid sunscreen that is a favorite for our family. However, at the beach and swimming in the ocean we also combine it with sunscreen applied to the skin.
