Having the ability to breathe in fresh air, soak up the rays, and be in nature is good for the mind, body, and soul and here is why …

The Top 5 Health Benefits from Vitamin D

1.It helps the intestine absorb nutrients, including calcium and
phosphorus. This ensures strong bones and a strong immune system which is vital for us all right now.

2. Vitamin D prevents osteomalacia and rickets. Osteomalacia, which
causes weakness of the muscular system and brittle bones, is most prevalent
among adults with vitamin D deficiency. Rickets is a skeletal deformity mostly
seen in children with vitamin D deficiency.

3. Vitamin D provides calcium balance in the body that prevents
osteoporosis or arthritis.

4. Vitamin D regulates blood pressure, reduces stress and tension,
relieves body aches and pains by reducing muscle spasms, reduces respiratory
infections, helps in differentiation of the cells, aids in insulin secretion,
helps fight depression, improves overall skin health by reducing wrinkles, makes
skin soft, strong, and smooth, and improves cardiovascular strength by providing
a protective lining for the blood vessels.

5. Vitamin D also helps with weightloss. Consider adding vitamin D supplements to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight or prevent heart disease.

In one study, people taking a daily calcium and vitamin D supplement were able to lose more weight than subjects taking a placebo supplement. The scientists said the extra calcium and vitamin D had an appetite-suppressing effect.

In another study, overweight people who took a daily vitamin D supplement improved their heart disease risk markers.

The benefits of vitamin D can be obtained by increasing exposure to
sunlight and including vitamin D rich foods into your diet like fish, cod liver
oil, milk, and eggs. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also good sources of
vitamin D.

Although vitamin D supplements are not as effective as synthesizing
vitamin D naturally by the body, they are still effective in treating several
medical conditions. Vitamin D fortified food products and fortified milk can
also provide this essential nutrient to our body.
