Benefits of Vitamin D

From a very young age we are told that vitamins are good for us and that's why we need to eat certain foods that, although taste awful, are in fact good for us and our development. So to some extent we shut up and shovel those sprouts down. As we grow older our taste buds change and certain foods become more acceptable to our palate, but do we ever truly understand why we need to eat these foods and what they actually do for us Vitamin D is one of those many confusing vitamins, we've all heard of it, and know we need to eat foods containing it, but when we head to the internet to read up on what it's for we are faced with a lot of confusing chemistry that doesn't really make sense Simply put Vitamin D is produced in the skin after exposure to ultraviolet B light, from the sun or artificial sources, and occurs naturally in a small range of foods. It helps the body in a number of ways by promoting the healthy mineralisation, growth and remodelling of bones, as well as defending the body against microbial invaders. It can also help protect adults against osteoporosis A deficiency of Vitamin D in childhood can result in thin, brittle, or misshapen bones (so that's why we were force fed fish!) as well being associated with some cancers, diabetes and multiple sclerosis amongst other illnesses. As well as helping keep the body healthy Vitamin D is also good for teeth, helping the body absorb and utilise calcium Food sources such as fatty fish, mushrooms, eggs, and meat are rich in Vitamin D however, unlike other vitamins, Vitamin D can be synthesised and so is also available in both tablet and capsule forms So next time you're having a battle with your kids to get them to eat their fish, just remember they will eventually thank you for it, though it may not be for several years yet! Though if this fight is one too many for you, grab a bottle of the Vitamin D tablets from the vitamin retailer HollandMore content for healjourney.com coming soonBarrett -they do the trick just as well.
