There are many good reasons why. you should get sufficient vitamin D, especially during time of COVID-19. This post will provide much information about various studies that have shown that sufficient vitamin D would help to boost immune system and reduce risk of infections, COVID-19, heart disease, and various cancers. Besides taking vitamin D in supplement form, acquiring vitamin D via sun exposure (15-20 minutes of exposure to sun 3 times per week) seems to be the preferred route of obtaining vitamin D, according to some study.

Dr William B Grant runs the Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center www.sunarc.org This is devoted to research and education relating to the prevention of chronic disease through changes in diet and lifestyle. Dr Grant has identified 100 types of disease for which vitamin D reduces risk. He will talk about the estimated health benefit of increased vitamin D status and how it reduces the economic burden of disease in Western Europe, in the video “Higher Vitamin D levels reduce the risk of 19 types of cancer – Dr William Grant“, below:

A 25,000 person study shows that vitamin D supplementation does not reduce the incidence of cancer or cardiovascular disease versus a placebo. However, sun exposure has been tightly correlated with reduction in certain cancers as well as cardiovascular disease. Aim to get outside for 15 minutes with no sunblock, at least three times a week, to reap these benefits. See Healthy Gut, Healthy You for more specific dosage guidelines and considerations for your specific vitamin D level, in the video “Do Vitamin D Supplements Reduce Cancer or Heart Disease?” below:
In this video, Dr. Josh Axe is going to talk about the benefits of vitamin D as well as symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. In certain studies, Americans have been found to be the #1 population in vitamin D deficiency. Some of the main symptoms of vitamin D deficiency are a weakened immune system, candida or bacterial overgrowth, emotional ups and downs, hormone imbalance, trouble putting on muscle or losing weight, weakened bones or teeth, cancer, heart disease, or diabetes. Vitamin D supports having a healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and more. The biggest causes of vitamin D deficiency are not getting enough sunlight, certain chemicals from plastic bottles (BPA), and toxicity. Try to get outside every day for about 20-30 minutes of natural sunlight. Certain foods that are sources of vitamin D are wild caught fish, raw fermented milk, mushrooms, and eggs. However, there are small amounts in the food you eat. For a good supplement, Dr. Josh Axe recommends a high-quality vitamin D supplement. You don’t want to take vitamin D2, but you do want to take vitamin D3. For supplementation, take about 2000-5000 IUs a day. However, if you have a severe deficiency, then for 1-2 months, you may take 5000 IUs twice daily. Lastly, you want to take your vitamin D3 with some form of fat like coconut oil or avocado to help absorption in your body, in the video “What Are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms? Dr. Josh Axe“, below:
