03 Soaking Up the Summer Sun

Welcome back! Since our last newsletter, Summer has officially begun - we hope you're basking in all the Vitamin D from the Sun - safely of course! Remember to stay hydrated ☀

In fact it is the weather which inspired us here at Get Body Back to discuss Vitamin D in more detail. We'll be talking about the multitude of benefits it can have - as if you needed more of a reason to take advantage of the weather and fresh air this Summer!

{Vitamin D3}

d e f i n i t i o n :

Both a NUTRIENT that can be obtained from certain foods, and
a HORMONE produced by the body. It is fat-soluble. The best sources of Vitamin D from food are: FLESH OF FATTY FISH 🐟, FISH LIVER OILS 🐟, and smaller amounts are found in EGG YOLKS 🍳, CHEESE 🧀, AND BEEF LIVER 🍔. HOWEVER, the amounts this vitamin tend to be small, so many people choose to supplement instead, with two common forms: Vitamin D2 (“ergocalciferol”) & Vitamin D3 (“cholecalciferol”).


Primarily, it helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphorus in the body, both of which are essential for healthy bones 🦴, teeth and muscles 💪. However, it also has other benefits:

☀ Supports good immune function

☀ May reduce risk of autoimmune diseases (diabetes, asthma & rheumatoid arthritis)

☀ Positive effect on the immune response of cells

☀ Maintains normal cell division

☀ Maintains normal immune function, muscle function 💪

☀ A deficiency in children can cause rickets, and osteomalacia in adults (poor bone density & muscular weakness) 🦴

☀ A long-term vitamin D deficiency can also result in osteoporosis

It's worth mentioning that for the best results, it is recommended to supplement with both Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 MK-7 simultaneously 😊

P R E C A U T I O N S :

⚠ Taking too many Vitamin D supplements over a long period of time can cause too much calcium to build up in the body (hypercalcaemia), which can weaken the bones, damage the kidneys and the heart.

⚠ The most common symptoms of excessive vitamin D include headaches and nausea, but: loss of appetite, dry mouth, a metallic taste, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea may also occur.

⚠ The National Institutes of Health reports that Vitamin D toxicity is unlikely at intakes under 10,000 IU per day, but you should consult your doctor if you are unsure which dosage is correct for you.
