Did you know that a shocking 61% of American children are currently suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency? We usually get it in abundance from sunlight but it seems as though many of us are starting to miss out.
Vitamin D is quite unique, almost completely unique in fact - want to know why? Because unlike all the other vitamins our body needs to keep us healthy, it's almost completely absent from our food supply.
That's right, you can't get it from your diet. You get it instead, from the sun. The energy transferred to us from the sun's rays contains this powerful nutrient and as we increasingly live our lives indoors, a staggering number of us simply aren't getting all we need.
When we learn that we actually generate Vitamin D in our skin as a result of direct interaction with ultraviolet sunlight, we rightly begin to question widespread knowledge that UV light is harmful to our skin.
The unfortunate truth is that both are true. UV light can and will form melanomas and other forms of skin cancer if we don't use sunscreen and urge caution. However, in equal measure - we need Vitamin D because it creates hormones in our liver and kidneys which are vital to combating precancerous cells.
So how do we best approach this baffling paradox? According to the American Academy of Dermatologists, using sunscreen (in spite of its ability to inhibit D3 production) is absolutely crucial to stave off skin cancer. Their solution - Vitamin D3 supplementation. Fortunately for us, that means Swanson Vitamin D3.
In a world of offices, schools, gyms and cinemas, indoor activity is rife. When we are informed by all relevant medical associations that skin cancer rates have now ballooned to five times what they were in the 1970s, what are we supposed to do about keeping up our vital supply of Vitamin D3?
In two recent studies of American children, it was discovered that somewhere in the region of 70% of those studied weren't getting enough Vitamin D.
The result of which is a higher risk of obesity, diabetes and even hypertension. Swanson Vitamin D3 can help stem the flow of decreasing nutritive development in both children and adults.
