Vitamin D3 research suggests it can help reduce cancer risk, osteoporosis and bone disease, asthma, infections, stroke, tuberculosis, pneumonia, diabetes, depression,insomnia, joint pain fibromyalgia, muscle weakness, psoriasis,dementia, Crohn's, Celiac's, and Multiple Sclerosis. Overweight people have lower levels because fat binds it.Recently, vitamin D has been associated with specific cancer prevention, as well as increased bone density. The use of sunblocks has reduced vitamin D absorption. Vitamin D exposure from the sun takes 6 hours to absorb. Most people shower or wash before absorption of vitamin D is complete. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Poor digestion of fats and digestive illnesses can cause vitamin D deficiency.
Circulating levels can be tested by serum 25- hydroxy vitamin D, activated by the kidneys. Those taking large doses of vitamin D, or suspect a deficiency, should have their blood levels tested and follow their physician's instructions.
