Because of media-driven fears of skin cancer, the anti-aging obsession and the proliferation of indoor, computer-based office jobs, the vast majority of the public doesn’t get anywhere near the recommended 20 minutes of sun exposure every day and thus, suffers from serious vitamin D deficiencies. Adequate vitamin D levels are crucial for calcium absorption, healthy skin, strong bones and teeth, proper immune function and even weight loss. In fact, vitamin D is absolutely essential for so many biological processes that many scientists don’t consider it so much a vitamin as a hormone precursor. It provides an enormous amount of protection against cancer (including skin cancer), as well as many chronic diseases and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. Perhaps the fact that more women than men tend to avoid the sun and shield themselves with sunscreen, most of which is added to their cosmetics, is one reason why 75% of the 23.5 million Americans suffering from autoimmune diseases are women. When we look at the ratios for specific autoimmune diseases, the disparity is even greater: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis: 10:1, Grave’s disease, 7:1 and lupus, 9:1.
Healing D provides 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) daily as a powerful supplement to guard your health and offer invaluable disease prevention due to the sunshine you may not be getting because you’re stuck indoors most of the day. In addition, it includes vitamin K (Phytonadione), which is a perfect pairing for vitamin D, to support proper clotting of the blood. If you’re currently taking blood thinning medication, be sure to speak with your doctor before taking vitamin K, as it may interact with the effectiveness of such pharmaceuticals.
In the meantime, make a real effort to get in the sun more! If aging is a concern, try to get your sun before noon or after 4:00pm, when the sun’s rays are less intense, and let it shine on your back, legs and shoulders. The more skin that makes contact with sunlight, the more vitamin D you’ll get. Make it a priority, especially if you’re pregnant. Twenty minutes is all you need.
