Vitamin D - The Hottest Nutrient under the Sun
By Garden of Life Health Writers

 

Vitamin D may be the most clinically studied nutrient of the last decade. If you search it on the web, you’ll find an avalanche of recently published studies either confirming its benefits or revealing new ones. It supports breast health, colon health and prostate health. It supports the immune system. It helps build healthy bones and teeth. It supports memory and concentration. The impressive list goes on and on -- it may just be the most important vitamin for human health.

Vitamin D Deficiency

According to a March 2009 report in Archives of Internal Medicine, 75 percent of U.S. teens and adults are deficient in vitamin D. That number is astonishing for more than one reason. Consider that you receive vitamin D every time you step outside into the sunshine since your body has the ability to take sunlight and convert it into vitamin D. You can receive vitamin D from the foods you eat and the dairy products you consume. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines and fatty tuna are superior sources of vitamin D, as well as milk and yogurt fortified with vitamin D. In fact, almost all milk sold for human consumption in the U.S. is required to be fortified with vitamin D.

This all adds up to a perplexing reality. If you can get vitamin D simply by sitting in the sun, and if it’s readily available in many of the foods recommended as part of a healthy diet, how did we get to become a nation of vitamin D deficiency?

In an ironic twist, much of the current vitamin D deficiency can be laid at the feet of skin cancer. To protect ourselves from the ravages of this disease, we’re told to slather sunscreen on our faces and wear long-sleeve shirts, yet the act of using sunscreen with an 8 SPF or greater reduces our ability to convert the sun’s ultraviolet rays into vitamin D production.

Add to that the fact that if you live in northern climates, it’s almost impossible to get adequate sunlight during the colder months, and that popular voices in the media tell us to avoid the foods highest in vitamin D because of their high fat content, and you begin to see where our national vitamin D deficiency comes from.

As for vitamin D from food, there are a few theories as to why we’re still deficient despite a fairly ready supply of foods rich in vitamin D. Many Americans don’t eat much fish, which is probably the best dietary source of vitamin D, because of several factors: price, taste, availability and safety.

And what about the vitamin D-fortified beverages? It’s no secret that milk consumption has fallen over the last decade, again for a variety of reasons. The anti-fat crusade put a damper on milk sales, and soft drinks—a cheaper source of calories—have ridden a wave of popularity in the last 30 years, cutting into the consumption of healthier beverages that have been fortified with vitamin D. The net effect is the current state of vitamin D deficiency in the U.S.

How Do We Get Enough Vitamin D?

Introducing VITAMIN CODE RAW D3

Vitamin Code RAW D3 is different from any other vitamin D nutritional supplement available today. In following with the Vitamin Code philosophy, RAW D3 is a whole food vitamin D complex that is gluten and dairy-free with no soy allergens, binders or fillers, and contains live probiotics and enzymes. More importantly, Vitamin Code RAW D3 is provided in a RAW form.

Typically, vitamin D for supplementation comes in two forms, vitamin D2 or D3 .Vitamin D2 must be transformed into one of two active forms via the liver or kidneys, while vitamin D3 is what your body creates when exposed to sunlight. While both have been shown in clinical studies to be effective at raising vitamin D levels in the blood, vitamin D3 is preferred since it’s metabolized much better in the body and is in the form of vitamin D that comes from the most natural sources possible—the sun and our food.

The vitamin D3 used in Vitamin Code RAW D3 by Garden of Life is grown in probiotic mediums. In this RAW food-created process, inorganic D3 is added to a mixture of either yeast (a single-celled plant) or a probiotic (Lactobacillus bulgaricus). Each mixture also contains a peptide (a grouping of amino acids) that allows the D3 to pass through the cell wall of the yeast or probiotic and then attach itself to the cell.

The growing process is allowed to continue until the yeast or probiotic has grown into maturity and other enzymes and probiotics are created. Once the single-celled organisms have matured, additional enzymes are added to break down the cell walls, freeing the food-created vitamin D3 for consumption.

The result is a RAW vitamin D3, a true breakthrough in vitamin technology.

And the Recommendation Is . . .

As vitamin D deficiency has become more prevalent, the attention and focus paid to vitamin D have increased, and for good reason. Most people familiar with vitamin D understand that this nutrient is essential to skeletal system health. Along with calcium, vitamin D is considered vital for maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin D actually regulates the use of calcium in the body by dramatically increasing its absorption and utilization. But strong, healthy bones are only the starting point. Much of the interest in vitamin D stems from the fact that it’s found throughout the body in over 600 receptor sites.

Interestingly, vitamin D isn’t a vitamin in the classic sense; it is a pro-hormone that is eventually converted to an active hormone. As such, it has receptor sites in just about every major organ in the body, including the brain and the heart. Due to the fact that vitamin D receptors are so prevalent in the body, research has increased on vitamin D, and seemingly every day new studies tout the health benefits of vitamin D consumption.

Recent studies have also shown that vitamin D supports immune health by helping to regulate the immune system. The brain is home to dozens of vitamin D receptor sites, and vitamin D has been shown to enhance memory and concentration. Vitamin D supports healthy digestion, again since receptor sites are found from the mouth all the way through the intestines. Healthy vitamin D levels support two increasing areas of concern—breast health for women and prostate health for men. Rest assured, as new studies are completed, additional benefits from vitamin D will emerge.

So how much vitamin D should you take?

Current recommendations set the bar at 400-600IUs daily. Consider, though, that the daily vitamin D recommendation was recently increased and many researchers, scientists and physicians are pushing for even higher recommended daily amounts (up to 2,000 IU’s per day).

Vitamin Code RAW D3 contains 2,000IU of vitamin D3 plus trace amounts of vitamin D2. This amount, five times the current daily recommendation, is based on the overwhelming evidence supporting the positive health benefits of vitamin D.

In the end, the decision shouldn’t be whether or not to supplement with vitamin D, the decision should be with which vitamin D to supplement. That choice has become much easier with the introduction of Vitamin Code RAW D3, the RAW, whole food version of the hottest nutrient under the sun.
