Vitamin D (Home Remedies)


Vitamin D is  contained in the Sun; it should be sufficient for human needs in Vitamin. Even so, it was not so. This is because the Earth’s condition continues to be bad and the lack of the ozone layer (ozone has thinned) until the sun exposure should be good, even the worse.

When the Sun could not be expected in giving this Vitamin intake, it seems that now it’s time to switch on the food. Indeed, various food, manifold wealth of Vitamin D as well. Anyone can only equip a quarter of the body needs, there are also able to complement all.

Make sure your body really does lack of Vitamin d. Lack of this Vitamin will slow the absorption of calcium in the body and occurs in the buildup of blood. As a result, your bones can’t get calcium needs, and of course, it is harmful

If  you’re looking to obtain more vitamin D from food sources you may be wondering which fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin D.

While the best way to get vitamin D is from the sun, sometimes it isn’t possible to get the daily requirement in this way due to factors including the strength of the sunlight on any given day, skin color (darker skinned people absorb less vitamin D than lighter skinned people), distance from the equator, age, and other variables.

Because vitamin D is involved in regulating the levels of minerals such as phosphorous and calcium, it is used for conditions caused by low levels of phosphorous (familial hypophosphatemia and Fanconi syndrome) and low levels of calcium (hypoparathyroidism and pseudohypoparathyroidism).
