Health Benefits of Vitamin D

Monday, 28 Feb 2011 09:55 AM

Although vitamin D is needed by our body in small quantities, it plays a crucial role in maintaining strong bones and in boosting immunity. Vitamin D is synthesized in the body by exposure to sunlight, and any deficiency may result in serious complications like rickets, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and frequent fractures.
 
Health benefits of vitamin D include:
 
· The primary health benefits of vitamin D (particularly vitamins D2 and D3) include regulating the body’s calcium levels by maintaining a proper balance of calcium and phosphate in the blood. Vitamin D benefits the calcium bank in the bones by aiding the intestine to better absorb calcium from food.
· Scientific research points to health benefits of vitamin D in terms of improved insulin secretion and blood sugar level, better kidney functioning, and prevention of high blood pressure.
· Health benefits of vitamin D also include strengthening of teeth, lowered incidence of respiratory infections, and a decrease in mental stress and anxiety.
· Vitamin D supplements help overcome B12 deficiency and provide health benefits such as reduction in wrinkles, muscular spasms, and dullness and dryness of hair while assisting in managing depression.
