As we get older, we need to focus more on our health above anything else. It came as a surprise to me that although I am out and about all day and most mornings under the sun, I have Vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D Deficiency is strongly linked to Chronic Diseases such as Cancer, Heart Failure, Diabetes, etc.
Studies how that 36 of our organs and tissues are regulated by Vitamin D, including our heart, lungs, brain, and bones. Sadly not all get the sufficient Vitamin D requirement they need.
According to a study conducted by Hi-Precision Diagnostics on 8200 Filipinos from key cities, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are Vitamin D Deficient.
This is not really surprising since a lot of people are stuck indoors. It’s hard to get enough Vitamin D from the sun (indoor lifestyle, clothing, skin color, aging, and use of umbrellas or sunscreen limit Vitamin D absorption)
It’s difficult to obtain from food (RDA of Vitamin D is equivalent to 40 eggs / 8 glasses of milk / 800g of salmon / 2 cans of tuna flakes every day)
Kids these days, have a much higher chance of Vitamin D deficiency because of the lessening of outdoor activities and not only the bad rap of being under the sun for a long period of time.
Children need Vitamin D, here are some of the best reasons:
• Vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption among infants
• If Vitamin D Concentration in the mother’s breast milk is low (which, as studies show, is usually the case), this may lead to Vitamin D Deficiency in infants.
• Vitamin D Deficiency in infants can cause “rickets, delayed motor development, muscle weakness, aches and pains, and fractures” Check out the details here:
• Vitamin D Supplementation for breastfeeding mothers is important to help provide Vitamin D requirements of the breastfeeding infant
It’s a good thing that Unilab now has Forti-D Vitamin D Supplement. With a single capsule a day you get the full day requirement of Vitamin D.
It is better to stay healthy. A balanced diet, exercise and sufficient monitoring of the nutrients that our body needs.
I am glad Forti-D is now available to help keep with Vitamin D balanced.
