Helotes, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/13/2016 -- Sunlight exposure is necessary for vitamin D synthesis in the skin. It is transported to the liver and converted to 25-hydroxyvitamin D.
Most of us don't get the required 20 minutes each day of direct sun on our skin to maintain healthy blood levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is more common than previously thought. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that the percentage of adults achieving vitamin D sufficiency as defined by 25(OH)D of at least 30 ng/mL has declined from about 60% in 1988-1994 to approximately 30% in 2001-2004 in whites and from about 10% to approximately 5% in African Americans during this same time.
This means approximately 60% of Americans are considered deficient in vitamin D. And older folks more so than younger people.
Research demonstrates that Vitamin D plays many important roles in long term health besides bone preservation:
-Healthy vascular system
-Better brain function
-Diminished fibromyalgia discomfort
-Robust immune system
-Less Age-related decline
-Sturdy bones and vertebrae
There is no doubt that getting Vitamin D is essential to one's health, but research – as cited – has shown that getting enough in the first place clearly is a huge issue as well. Pain & Stress Center always puts the latest medical findings at the hub of all their products and Vitamin D3 5000 IU is certainly no exception to this. Like all their other supplements, Pain & Stress Center's Vitamin D is formulated using only ingredients that offer optimal efficacy and with just the right potency.
"If you have dark skin, use sun block, live above latitude 37 (Denver), or are over the age of 50, you need more Vitamin D daily," shared Pain & Stress Center Owner Katherine Birkner, Ph.D. "And even if you don't fall under any of these criteria, you're still not automatically exempt from being susceptible to Vitamin D deficiency and should not write off the possibility."
