Vitamin D is more than just a simple vitamin, this nutrient acts as a potent anti-oxidant and steroid hormone. Vitamin D helps in the prevention of inflammation, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, multiple sclerosis and other auto-immune diseases. It also helps support brain health, immune function and mental health. We depend mostly on the sun for our daily dose; however most of us cover up with clothes or sun block, making absorption next to impossible. In the winter months our exposure is limited further. While taking a supplement may be your first thought, it is important to note that no nutrient acts in isolation in the body, nor should it be taken in isolation. For this reason your best food choices to supply D is organic beef liver or butter. If you choose a supplement, consider a quality cod liver oil.
