THIS Vitamin D Mistake Could KILL You

If you don’t know that you should be taking a vitamin D supplement, ESPECIALLY during the winter, I need to step up my game.

I get it. You may be like me, full of the best intentions but sometimes lacking a little when it comes to follow through.

Or you may feel like you spend enough time outdoors to get plenty of vitamin D. That may be true. But there’s ALSO a good chance you’re running low.

During the winter months, it’s hard to maintain D levels. And if you’re a senior, your chance of having sub-optimal levels is even higher.

And that’s a MAJOR problem. See, vitamin D plays a vital role in many things, from blood pressure to bone health.

I’ll review some of those proven benefits in just a few moments. But first, I want to talk about one GIGANTIC vitamin D benefit that researchers just confirmed.

Because this one could literally save your life.

For decades now, we’ve been taught to fear the sun. And all those negative messages about sun exposure have worked.

We spend far less time outdoors than we used to. Plus, every bit of exposed skin is covered in high-SPF sunscreen when we venture outside.

But melanoma cases have been on the rise despite our avoiding the sun’s rays. In fact, the number of folks being diagnosed with this deadly form of skin cancer has risen by 31 percent since 2012.

What’s going on here? Well, this is where vitamin D comes into play.

Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” for a reason. Our body produces it when the sun’s rays hit our skin.

But we’re not allowing this natural process to take place. So it should come as no surprise that vitamin D deficiency is a widespread problem.

At least 35 percent of U.S. adults reportedly have a vitamin D deficiency. But I’m willing to bet the actual number is far higher.

Now, a new study published in the journal Melanoma Research may have uncovered yet another consequence of the war on sunshine…

According to researchers, taking a vitamin D supplement may provide protection against developing deadly melanoma.

Researchers recruited nearly 500 folks believed to be at a higher risk for skin cancer.

Participants were first classified into: high-risk, moderate-risk, and low-risk. Then they were divided into three groups based on their intake of vitamin D supplements: regular, occasional, and non-users.

There were significantly fewer cases of melanoma and lower skin cancer risk in the regular vitamin D users compared to non-users.

And while additional studies will need to be done, this is yet more evidence of the harm that avoiding the sun altogether could cause. Plus, it’s one more benefit to add to vitamin D’s already impressive list.

Vitamin D is linked to…

  • increased immunity
  • improved mood
  • reduced blood pressure
  • weight loss
  • better cognitive performance
  • stronger bones and teeth
  • reduced risks for dementia, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis

To build an even BETTER barrier against skin cancer, don’t stop at vitamin D. Consider supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids, collagen, and vitamin K also.

And be sure to load up on plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are packed with beneficial polyphenols and phytonutrients.
