There is so much to say about this incredible vitamin.

We now have very important Vitamin D Deficiency Blood Test

It is important to note that many Vitamin D3 on the market comes from the hide of the pig, an animal considered to be unclean by Muslims and Jews. This is why it is important for customers who consider the creator to be the supreme scientist, to get kosher certified supplements many of which you will find on this site.

The more that we understand about the benefits of vitamin D, the more it becomes crystal clear that it is in a class by itself. It does so many things for the body it is actually regarded as a hormone. Be sure to read the articles on this page about Vitamin D. In fact we would go as far as to say that if you can only afford to supplement on one vitamin supplement, let it be Vitamin D3. We do not carry Vitamin D2 since Vitamin D3 is what most health experts recommend. Also while we still carry Vitamin D3 400 IU, current knowledge suggest that 400 IU is way too little Vitamin D. Seek an intake recommendation from a health care practitioner that is keeping up with the latest information. We carry Vitamin D3 with as much as 5000 IU in one tablet. The other ingredients in each tablet includes cellulose, calcium carbonate, and calcium stearate.

If you must eat Kosher you should know that Vitamin D is often scraped of the hide of pigs. You can rest assured that Freeda Vitamin D is 100% kosher. It is the only Kosher Vitamin brand that we carry. Freeda is a honest brand; what you see is what you get.

More vitamin D could mean fewer cancers: study
December 14, 2009

Thousands of cases of breast and colon cancers might be averted each year if people in colder climates raised their vitamin D levels, researchers estimate in a new report.

A number of studies have suggested that vitamin D may be important in cancer risk. Much of this research is based on cancer rates at different latitudes of the globe; rates of breast, colon and ovarian cancer, for example, are lower in sunnier regions of the world than in Northern climates where cold winters limit people’s sun exposure.

Sunlight triggers the synthesis of vitamin D in the skin, and people who get little sun exposure tend to have lower stores of the vitamin.

Complementing these studies are lab experiments showing that vitamin D helps prevent cancer cells from growing and spreading, as well as some clinical trials in which people given high doses of vitamin D showed lower cancer risks.

For the new study, researchers at the University of California used data on average wintertime blood levels of vitamin D and rates of breast and colon cancers in 15 countries.

They found that rates of the diseases tended to fall as average vitamin D levels climbed, according to their report in the journal Nutrition Reviews. The protective effect against colon cancer seemed to begin when blood levels of vitamin D reached 22 nanograms per milliliter (ng/mL); for breast cancer, that number was 32 ng/mL.

The average late-winter vitamin D level among Americans is 15 to 18 ng/mL, according to the researchers.

They argue that, based on their data, if Americans were able to maintain a vitamin D level of at least 55 ng/mL, 60,000 cases of colon cancer and 85,000 cases of breast cancer could be prevented every year. Worldwide, those figures could be 250,000 and 350,000, respectively.

“This could be best achieved with a combination of diet, supplements and short intervals—10 or 15 minutes a day—in the sun,” lead study author Dr. Cedric F. Garland, a cancer prevention specialist at the University of California San Diego, said in a statement.

No one is recommending that people bake in the sun to reach high vitamin D blood levels. According to Garland, spending a matter of minutes in the midday sun, with 40 percent of the skin exposed, is enough. For fair-skinned people, the researchers estimate that just 3 minutes in the sun can be adequate, while darker-skinned people may need about 15 minutes.

A lifeguard in Southern California, Garland said, may have little need for extra vitamin D to reach potentially protective levels, whereas a Northerner who tends to stay indoors much of the year may need much more.

Garland and his colleagues recommend that, in addition to modest sun exposure, adults get 2,000 IU of vitamin D per day—which is the “tolerable upper intake level” set by U.S. health officials.

That limit exists because of the risk of vitamin D toxicity, which causes elevated calcium levels in the blood and problems such as nausea, weight loss, fatigue and kidney dysfunction.

Vitamin D Deficiency Increasingly Linked to Serious Illnesses

NaturalNews) A letter published in the April 30 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine states that almost half of critically ill patients in intensive care units (ICUs) are deficient in vitamin D, a common thread increasingly being linked to all sorts of adverse health conditions. Dr. Paul Lee, an endocrinologist and research fellow at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney, Australia and author of the recent study, admits a direct correlation between vitamin D deficiency and serious illness; this is a hypothesis long acknowledged by many in the natural health community who understand the critical role vitamin D plays in maintaining health and preventing disease.

A necessary component in perpetuating wellness, vitamin D facilitates proper blood sugar and calcium levels in the body as well as maintains proper heart function and gastrointestinal health. It is also said to protect the body from various infections, osteoporosis, diabetes, and even cancers. Since vitamin D is naturally present in very few foods, it is best obtained through skin exposure to sunlight whose UVB rays cause the body to produce the vitamin naturally and to the proper levels.

According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, the recommended daily intake, or adequate intake (AI), of vitamin D in healthy adults under 50 is a mere 200 international units (IU) while the U.S. Institute of Medicine recommends between 200 IU and 400 IU. While these levels may be adequate in preventing rickets, they have been found to be far too low in preventing the major diseases previously mentioned.

Many naturopathic physicians recognize that anywhere between 4,000 IU and 10,000 IU of vitamin D a day is a more appropriate therapeutic range, considering upper levels of vitamin D are generally recognized to be about 40,000 IU per day, a level far greater than the recommended daily intake thresholds established by mainstream medicine. Contrary to popular misperception, vitamin D is not dangerous nor is it toxic. With a therapeutic index of 10 (40,000/4,000), vitamin D is considered by the Vitamin D Council to be twice as safe as water in terms of "overdosing". In other words, vitamin D is safe and beneficial in relatively large amounts.

While sun exposure is the best method of achieving optimal vitamin D levels, it is difficult during the winter months to get enough exposure to the sun to generate adequate amounts of it. Due to the increasingly acute angle of the sun during the winter months, UVB rays have a harder time penetrating the atmosphere and reaching the skin. Since this time of year is also much colder, people spend little time outside. These factors have led many to conclude that this combination of minimal sun exposure and scarce UVB rays, resulting in severe vitamin D deficiency, facilitates events like the "flu season" and other seasonal sickness patterns that seem to occur when human beings are exposed to the least amount of sunlight.

Because of the undeniable connection between vitamin D deficiency and serious illness, many doctors are now recommending vitamin D supplementation. However, there are two major forms of vitamin D â€" ergocalciferol (D2) and cholecalciferol (D3). Which one is the best to use?

According to a 2004 study in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, cholecalciferol (D3), the animal-derived form of vitamin D that perfectly matches the human form in terms of conversion to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, is more than three times more potent than ergocalciferol (D2), a plant form that does not properly metabolize to confer the many benefits of vitamin D. This study is one of many that illustrates the superiority of vitamin D3 over vitamin D2 in both potency and effectiveness.

As previously mentioned, sun exposure is by far the preeminent method of obtaining vitamin D and one should utilize sun exposure as much as possible to maintain optimal health. Because the human body has a built-in mechanism for regulating vitamin D conversion, it is impossible to get too much vitamin D from the sun. Once the body creates the perfect amount, it shuts off for the day and begins its important protective and healing work. But in the winter when sunlight is scarce and exposure is limited, vitamin D3 supplementation is a person's best bet for staying healthy.
