Vitamin DVitamin D

Vitamin D is a powerful inhibitor of cancer development and growth – and vitamin D is produced almost entirely by exposure to the sun. It’s been noted that just 30 minutes of direct sunlight produces up to 50,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D.

In the 1970s and ’80s, the medical establishment, led by dermatologists, sounded an alarm over the rising number of malignant melanomas in the United States. Since doctors believed that most skin cancers were the result of too much exposure to UVB rays from the sun, they launched a campaign to persuade people to use sun blockers and stay out of the sun.

This campaign caused more problems than it corrected. Skin cancer is also caused by UVA rays, which most sun blocks don’t block, and since the sun was considered the main source of vitamin D, many people became vitamin D deficient. Thus, by making people vitamin D deficient, they inadvertently increased people’s risk of developing all forms of skin cancer, including the deadly malignant melanoma.

That’s only part of the problem when it comes to vitamin D deficiency. Recent research has revealed that vitamin D deficiency also contributes to serious neurological and brain disorders, including autism, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, a M.D., a board-certified neurosurgeon, and a practicing physician for more than 30 years, has created an important report that explains the importance of vitamin D, and what most of the medical experts are not telling you. I’ve read some of Dr. Blaylock’s report, and the information he provides will change the way you view your doctor’s agenda.

Vitamin D is a very complex substance. For more than half a century vitamin D was thought only to mineralize bones. But recent studies, according to Dr. Blaylock’s report, indicate that it does much more:

  • Regulates calcium in all cells (especially brain cells)
  • Protects the immune system
  • Regulates cell growth and cell death
  • Provides antioxidant and antiviral benefits

Dr. Blaylock also says, “we now know that vitamin D deficiency is very common in the elderly. This makes sense because so many are house-bound and avoid sun exposure.”

Since many of us do not get enough sunlight exposure, we need to take a daily vitamin D supplement. This vitamin is too important to the health of your body to ignore.

TriVita’s® Vitamin D, is my choice for vitamin D. It provides, five forms of chelated calcium, over 20 bone-fortifying vitamins and minerals, 100% RDI of Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin D, and Chlorophyll-coated tablets that protect valuable nutrients, time-releasing optimal absorption. TriVita’s Vitamin D is also absorbable so you can get the nutrition you need for healthier bones.
