How Vitamin D Can Contribute Towards a Healthy Lifestyle …

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin and plays an important role in your health. We access vitamin D by exposing ourselves to the sun, although some people may argue that the sun damages your skin and provokes skin related disease (which is true), but just 20 minutes exposing yourself to the sun a day can produce this healthy vitamin.

What makes vitamin D different to other vitamins such as vitamin C is because it is more of a hormone rather than a typical vitamin that you can consume on a daily basis. There are so many positive factors to vitamin D in your body which include:

Increasing life span
Boosts your immunity
Wound healing
Helps you sleep better
Blood pressure regulation
Maintains calcium balance
May help with weight loss
Can reduce depression
Has a role in insulin secretion
Can help prevent major diseases

These are just some of the many positive factors of vitamin D but if you are wondering why it is good for your health then maybe knowing that it protects over 2,000 genes in your body from expressing negative traits will prove how much of a strong contributor it is.

Famous actress, Jennifer Aniston who is the picture of health once even stated to keep up her physique and health in addition to a healthy balanced diet and exercise is she makes sure she indulges in vitamin D from the sun on a daily basis.

If you are lucky enough to access the sun on a daily basis to allow your body to soak up some vitamin D then this is great but for the rest of us there is another way! Online health product stores such as Luxe BC provide a selection of vitamin D supplements which you can fit into your daily lifestyle.

These products can be bought in everything from capsules to sprays and there are so many choices to choose from to ensure your health and body is getting all the nutrients it needs to maintain a healthy lifestyle.


Do you take a vitamin D supplement?

I know I do!


  1. I totally agree - Vitamin D is so difficult for us Brits to find in particular, but yet it's so important... rather looking forward to more sunshine rather than snow in 2013 :)
