Why We Love Vitamin D3

We’ve all heard that we should get out in the sun more often to improve our vitamin D levels, but how exactly does this vitamin benefit the body? As we developed Feel, we found that vitamin D had so many benefits that ingesting the daily dose of this nutrient should be mandatory.

For example, vitamin D is known to support the absorption of calcium in the intestines, helping to maintain bone density and strong teeth. Vitamin D also supports a balanced immune system, with research suggesting adequate vitamin D levels may reduce the risk of catching the flu, as well as exerting an anti-inflammatory effect.

Research suggests that this reduction in inflammation may support several allergic conditions. Consuming too much vitamin D can be dangerous, and so we’ve ensured we include the exact amount of this nutrient you need in Feel.

Unbelievable Benefits of Vitamin D3

There’s a scientific consensus that you need to consume plenty of vitamin D3 to be healthy. Here are some of the main reasons why this vitamin is so important:

Bone Benefits

While there’s some degree of controversy swirling around the question of whether vitamin D directly protects you from osteoporosis, it’s clear that this vitamin does improve bone density. As you get older, your bone density naturally decreases, and you become more prone to fractures and other bone-related problems. Consuming your daily dose of vitamin D may reduce your risk of having bone issues when you’re older.

Immune Benefits

In one study, children who consumed 1,200 IU of vitamin D per day during the winter were 40 percent less likely to catch influenza than the control group. Overall, vitamin D appears to improve your immunity all across the board, and it may reduce your risk of contracting all sorts of infectious diseases.

Since chronic inflammation is related to an overactive immune system, the immune-balancing effects of vitamin D may reduce inflammation throughout your body. In fact, the scientific community widely accepts that consuming the right amount of vitamin D reduces inflammation even though the exact mechanisms behind this effect remain unknown.

Diabetes Benefits

A longitudinal study found that children who were fed high levels of vitamin D from infancy onward were 88 percent less likely to develop diabetes later in life. These results strongly suggest that proper vitamin D intake is one of the best preventive measures against diabetes.

When you don’t have enough vitamin D in your body, your pancreas may have trouble producing insulin, and your insulin sensitivity may rise. Both conditions lead to diabetes, and they can also make existing diabetes worse.

Anti-Allergy Benefits

Children who don’t get enough vitamin D are more likely to develop allergic conditions like asthma, dermatitis, and eczema. Substances called glucocorticoids help prevent asthma, and vitamin D may strengthen the effects of these anti-inflammatory compounds.

Other Benefits

By boosting your immune system, vitamin D may reduce your risk of developing hypertension, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, autism, and Alzheimer’s disease.
