According to health and wellness expert, Dr Christine Northrup, a study conducted by Cedric Garland and other prominent vitamin D researchers determined that women with vitamin D levels above 52 ng/ml have half the risk of developing breast cancer as those with 13 ng/ml! Someone I love dearly had thyroid cancer and her vitamin d level was 12ng/ml. That was a convincing correlation for me to take this thing seriously. Increasing Vitamin D to optimum levels can:
- Improve bone health and prevention of osteoporosis, osteomalacia, and rickets.
- Reduce risk of heart disease, stroke, and breast, colon, and other cancers.
- Alleviate skin disorders.
- Decrease risk of autoimmune disorders, including multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes mellitus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Enhance mental health and lessening symptoms of seasonal affective disorder, premenstrual syndrome, and depression.
