“Sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D
Here’s a good tip for our body.
Vitamin D is an important vitamin our body needs for protecting health and overall well-being, yet up to 80% of Americans are vitamin D deficient. Called the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is produced when sunlight touches your skin. Some symptoms of low vitamin D levels are, high blood pressure, depression, fatigue and weakness, rickets (the softening of bones mostly in children), bone pain or muscle cramps.
Here are some reasons levels are low when it comes to this crucial vitamin. In our world today we work and play mostly indoors and when we do get outside we wear sunscreen. Even a weak sunscreen, such as SPF 8, can inhibit vitamin D production by up to 95%. Those who live farther from the equator get less sun exposure therefore have a greater risk of having insufficient levels of this vitamin than those who live near it.
Why is does this matter? Recent research studies show that vitamin D offers many important benefits including supporting healthy heart function, immune health, healthy cell development, along with supporting colon, breast and prostate health, and maintains strong bones and teeth by increasing calcium absorption. This is why children and adolescents need this vitamin as they grow.
Its so amazing to see how Elohim God created everything just the exact way how and what we need.
Even the creation of the World is so amazing; how the solars are far away from each other.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. … And God said “Let there be light,” and there was light.
How thankful we should be. Whenever we have time to see the sun, let’s think once more about our God saying “Thank you” for providing us what we need.
