Vitamin D Deficiency Over Winter Months Linked to Long-term Health Problems

Vitamin Planet (http://www.vitaminplanet.co.uk), one of the UK’s leading direct Vitamin retailers, offers an effective “sunshine vitamin” supplement to help reduce specific health concerns.

The main role vitamin D plays is in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the bones and assistance in cell to cell communication throughout the body, helping decrease pain in some instances.

Vitamin D is essential for healthy development, but it is not actually a vitamin, it is in fact synthesized in the body through sunlight exposure. The main role vitamin D plays is in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the bones and assistance in cell to cell communication throughout the body.

In addition to the importance of vitamin D in maintaining bone health, medical studies show previously unknown cellular interactions with other organs and tissue, including the brain. A vitamin D deficiency has been established for those with Alzheimer's disease, and it's also been linked to the development of certain cancers and heart disease.

Recently researchers have found a new benefit of Vitamin D supplementation in decreasing the neuropathic and sensory pain common in certain chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

This study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 1 is currently continuing at Johns Hopkins University to test the effect of vitamin D supplements on patients with MS, a disease commonly found in Northern regions with less sunshine, giving rise to the theory that a lack of vitamin D could play a role.

Rachel Moore of Vitamin Planet commented:
“The qualities of vitamin D may not be restricted to maintaining health but may also partly work as a hormone. Vitamin Planet offers quality products made in the UK to provide any vitamin deficiency supplements. When selecting D- Max Vitamin D3, you should consult with a GP/ healthcare practitioners to determine the dosage strength you need based on your individual levels and needs.”

Vitamin D supplements from Vitamin Planet include D-Max Vitamin D3. This product comes in three strengths – 1000 IU, 5000 IU, and 20,000 IU – to ensure that you get the maximum strength that you need.

D-Max offers you a revolutionary formulation in its Vitamin D3 product called OptiZyme Absorption technology. This unique technology has been clinically proven to help the body absorb higher levels of Vitamin D than normal.
