Importance Of Vitamin D3

Very often doctors advise people to expose themselves to sunlight at least for some time everyday. This is advised, in order to facilitate the production of Vitamin D3.

Vitamin D3 cannot be produced by the body but is produced externally through a photochemical process. Every time the skin is exposed to the sun, vitamin D3 is produced.

This vitamin is very essential for our body as it helps strengthen the immune system greatly and decreases the risk of cancer.

Deficiency Of Vitamin D3

Lack of vitamin D3 leads to the following diseases

– Kidney Stones
– Osteoporosis
– Obesity
– Psoriasis
– Fibromyalgia,
– Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
– Alzheimer’s disease
– Depression,
– Breast and colon cancer, ,
– High Blood Pressure
– Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
– Type 2 Diabetes

Well, isn’t this scary. Try exposing your face, hands and legs to sunlight at least for 10-15 minutes everyday. Make sure your skin has no sunscreen on it.

Our body is been created in such a beautiful way that the body can only absorb the required amount of Vitamin D3. So there are no chances of suffering from a overdose.

Some of us hardly get to see any sunlight as we work in closed office conditions. Some individuals who work night shifts also rarely get some sunlight, as they sleep during the day and work in the night.

Also, people living in snow-clad areas where sunlight is very rare, tend to suffer from lack of vitamin D3. In such conditions, vitamin D3 can be supplemented from

other sources like-egg yolk, beef liver, milk, sardines, salmon and cod liver oil.

Irrespective of you’re working schedules and work time, always make sure you expose yourself to some sunlight everyday.
