Why We Need Vitamin D

Why We Need Vitamin D

Vitamin D regulates everything in your body.

Although called a vitamin, vitamin D is actually a hormone. And in the last decade, science has uncovered just how important it is—from building stronger bones to anti-aging to immunity.

Vitamin D deficiency has now been linked to:

  •  Rosacea
  •  Eczema
  •  Psoriasis
  •  Heavy wrinkling
  •  Bone loss

It also helps to prevent some forms of depression, seasonal affective disorder, PMS, and sleeping disorders.

The skin produces Vitamin D and it needs extra help to get enough of this critical nutrient.

One way is through your diet. Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are among some of the best natural sources of vitamin D. Beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks also provide small amounts of it.

The proper intake of vitamin D can greatly improve skin conditions such as rosacea and heavy wrinkling, but the balance must take place topically and with diet.

Talk to your doctor about a blood test for vitamin D to see if your body is manufacturing enough of it. We can help you with the topical application.
