Vitamin D: The Sunshine Vitamin

Canadians at Risk for Low Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D is a vital nutrient.  We generally get the Vitamin D we need from the sun’s rays, which give Vitamin D its nickname the ‘Sunshine Vitamin’.  Unfortunately, two major issues prevent most Canadians from getting sufficient amounts of Vitamin D.  First, modern concerns about the harmful effects of sun exposure mean that Canadians tend to limit their time in the sun.  Second, Canada is a northern country with very limited amounts of sunshine during winter months.  Health experts believe as many as 80% of Canadians do not get enough Vitamin D from October through March.

Insufficient Vitamin D Intake is Associated With Major Diseases

How then, do we ensure that we get sufficient amounts of this vitamin?  Studies show that supplementation of Vitamin D, specifically D3, is an effective way to obtain Vitamin D.

The costs of not getting enough Vitamin D are great.  Low levels of Vitamin D are associated with:

  • Low bone density and poor calcium absorption
  • Low energy and depressed mood from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) during winter months
  • Backaches, muscle pain and painful joint inflammation, especially in seniors
  • Greater incidence of falls in the elderly
