Vitamin D (calciferol) is a fat-soluble vitamin so critical to human health that our skin manufactures it in response to sun exposure. Its role in bone health is well-documented but vitamin D receptors are also present and active in a variety of tissues outside of bones, such as in heart muscle cells and arterial muscle cells. This would suggest that vitamin D plays a significant role in proper cardiovascular function and blood pressure. In addition, it appears that vitamin D improves immune function by increasing the production of anti-microbial proteins that provide a natural defense against disease-causing bacteria and viruses.

Common conditions that increase one’s vitamin D requirements:

  • Living in a cold climate
  • Dark pigmented skin
  • Frequent infections
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Vegan diet
  • Osteopenia and osteoporosis
  • History of breast or colorectal cancer
