Over the years, Vitamin D has been noted for its protective benefits against several serious health concerns well beyond bone health. In the mid-1960s scientists began to unravel the true mysteries of this vitamin and found that Vitamin D was not really a vitamin at all. Vitamins are micronutrients that the body cannot produce on its own, but are needed in small quantities for health and well-being. Unlike other vitamins, Vitamin D can be produced by the body through exposure to the sun. Scientists found that Vitamin D was required by the body for numerous metabolic processes. Scientifically, Vitamin D is now referred to as the “Vitamin D hormone”.
According to researchers at the Loyola University, Vitamin D is definitely proving to be the “it” nutrient.1 Lack of Vitamin D has been associated with autoimmunity, fractures, cardiovascular disorders, as well as insulin sensitivity and secretion. Among a host of positive benefits, a healthy intake of Vitamin D is associated with supporting bone health, periodontal health, and mental health.
A recent research study suggests that Vitamin D deficiency may be associated with a significant increase in lung transplant rejection. A study investigator at the Loyola University Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease Center noted that about 77 percent of lung transplant patients are Vitamin D deficient. Researchers believe that Vitamin D is critical for positive lung transplant replacements and optimal levels are needed to help the immune system tolerate the new organ.2
Another new study conducted at the Stanford University Medical Center suggests that prime targets for Vitamin D deficiency are those who protect their skin daily from the sun because of a genetic disposition to certain chronic skin ailments. There is also an increasing concern of Vitamin D deficiency that may arise from sun protection, a recommendation of dermatologists. Over-protecting the skin from UV damage may result in low levels of Vitamin D leading to harmful affects on health. 3
Over the past thirty years, scientists have revealed a wide variety of functions that has boosted the benefits of vitamin D prompting the Food and Nutrition Board under the Institute of Medicine to re-evaluate the recommended dietary intake (RDI) of Vitamin D from its current RDI of 200 IUs. Their report “Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D” announcing the new RDI for Vitamin D will be released to the public on November 30, 2010.4
Meet Consumer Demand for Vitamin D Supplements with High-Quality Vitamin Manufacturers
As research continues to support the importance of Vitamin D in our diets, more people are choosing to take Vitamin D as a single supplement to increase their daily intake of this “vitamin hormone”. The sale of this vitamin has boosted the vitamin manufacturing industry as well. According to the Nutrition Business Journal, sales of vitamin D in 2009 were up 82 percent from the previous year.5
