The Benefits Of Vitamin D

Posted by Natalie on

OK, real talk, are you getting enough Vitamin D? Vitamin D is an important nutrient your body needs to function and stay healthy. It is responsible for increasing absorption of minerals like calcium, magnesium and phosphate. Vitamin D is essential to your health but, let’s look at HOW exactly👇 

 

HOW VITAMIN D CAN HELP YOU 

  • Regulate serotonin levels (YEP! the neurotransmitter responsible for your happiness). Inadequate Vitamin D levels can be linked to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. 
  • Promote healthy bones and teeth - Vitamin D plays an important role in the regulation of calcium levels in the blood. A Vitamin D deficiency can result in poor bone density and muscular weakness.

  • Boost the immune system - Vitamin D enhances immune system strengthening nutrients which reduces the risk of colds and flu. EVEN COVID-19!
  • Regulate insulin levels and support diabetes management - Vitamin D can help to improve the body’s sensitivity to insulin and thus reduces the risk of insulin resistance.

WHOA! That’s a lot of benefits, and the list goes on BUT, the question remains, are you getting enough?

 

MAIN SOURCES OF VITAMIN D 


Boombod Healthy Food


Foods highest in Vitamin D include: salmon, orange juice, soy milk, cheese and egg yolks but most people don’t achieve their suggested daily Vitamin D intake through diet alone. If you’re not sure how much Vitamin D your body actually needs? Check out this article to find out what’s right for you.

Typically most adults aged 19-70 is 15 mcg (600 IU) for proper functioning. The amounts of Vitamin D we need can change depending on our age. Sunlight is also an incredible source of Vitamin D, though it is important to get sun exposure in moderation as we know too much sun can also have its risks when it comes to our health.
