Conclusive scientific evidence indicates that modern industrial human beings are dangerously deficient in vitamin D. Research shows this vitamin D deficiency is a common causal factor in pandemic levels of illness and suffering. Deficiencies in vitamin D have been linked to greater risk of severe conditions/illnesses throughout life:

Children: Improper bone growth and development, diabetes, autism, asthma, weakened immunity, allergies, increased susceptibility to colds and flu, decreased ability to heal.

Teens and Adults: Cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, chronic bone and muscle pain, weakened immunity, allergies and atopic disorders, increased susceptibility to colds and flu, chronic inflammation.

Elderly: Osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease, weakened immunity, increased risk of infection, increased susceptibility to colds and flu, chronic inflammation.

Research Indicates That:

1. Vitamin D is ESSENTIAL for wellness and prevention.

Sufficient levels of vitamin D are necessary for the proper function of the immune system, for cardiovascular health, for bone growth and repair, and for overall wellness and prevention. Those who are deficient in vitamin D live shorter, more illness plagued lives than those who are sufficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D is an essential genetic requirement for human wellness and prevention.

2. Industrial humans are DANGEROUSLY DEFICIENT in vitamin D.

Humans are genetically designed to get their vitamin D from DAILY sunlight. Modern humans living in northern climates simply cannot get enough sun exposure to produce sufficient levels of vitamin D. Even those who live in sunny climates rarely, if ever, get enough sun exposure due to clothing and use of sunscreens.

3. The only way to assure sufficient amounts of vitamin D is through daily SUPPLEMENTATION.

Dietary sources of vitamin D are simply not sufficient. Genetically humans are not designed to get vitamin D from food; we are designed to get it from sun exposure. The only way to get sufficient amounts of vitamin D is to supplement with vitamin D3, the same form of vitamin D that is produced by sun exposure.

Facts You Need To Know

Fact: Vitamin D deficiency can have severe consequences and is linked to very serious illness in people of all ages. Vitamin D deficiency is linked to cancer, heart disease, asthma, allergies, autism, autoimmune, diabetes, seasonal colds and flu and a plethora of other serious illnesses.

Fact: Vitamin D deficiencies are linked to the following forms of cancer: colon, esophageal, gallbladder, gastric, pancreatic, rectal, small intestine, bladder, kidney, prostate, breast, endometrial, ovarian, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Fact: Vitamin D regulates parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and serum calcium levels. Vitamin D increases the absorption of calcium and is essential for the development and maintenance of bones and teeth.

Fact: Research suggests that Vitamin D deficiency can lead to musculoskeletal pain syndromes.

Fact: Vitamin D3 is made in the skin from exposure to Ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation.

Fact: Unless you are getting 30 minutes of summer sunlight exposure on large parts of your body every day you will almost certainly be deficient in vitamin D.

Fact: Research is clear that most people living in industrialized society have deficient sun exposure and thus are deficient in Vitamin D.

Fact: You cannot get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your diet. Humans are genetically designed to get vitamin D from sun exposure not our diets.

Fact: Research indicates that daily supplementation with Vitamin D can significantly reduce the burden of both chronic and infectious diseases.

Fact: Vitamin D supplementation can enhance immunity to bacterial and viral infections, reducing the risk of diseases such as pneumonia, periodontal disease, septicemia, tuberculosis, influenza, bronchitis and the common cold and flu.

Fact: Research suggests that Vitamin D supplementation can also reduce the risk of metabolic disorders such as cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and stroke.

Fact: Vitamin D supplementation can reduce the risk of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and type 1 diabetes.

Fact: Vitamin D supplementation reduces the risk of hip fractures and non-vertebral fractures.

Fact: Sufficiency in Vitamin D is required for wellness and prevention during all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. In the absence of adequate sun exposure, DAILY vitamin D supplementation for children and adults are ESSENTIAL.
