Humans receive vitamin D from Sunlight. What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D, in the form of calciferol (vitamin D3) is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is found in food, but also can be made in your body after exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. The liver and kidneys help convert vitamin D to its active hormone form known as calcitriol; so, in actual fact, vitamin D technically is sunlight derived pro-hormone calcitriol. Vitamin D in its active pro-hormone form of calcitriol is important in determining how our cells express themselves and is vital in the production of various hormones and neurotransmitters (messengers in the brain). For the purpose of more clarity and understanding we will refer to calcitriol as vitamin D. The major biological function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium, and thus helps to form and maintain strong bones and teeth. It regulates bone mineralization in unison with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones. In short, without vitamin D, bones start to become thin, brittle, soft, or misshapen. Vitamin D prevents rickets in children, osteoporosis and osteomalacia in adults.
Deficiency or insufficiency of natural sunlight and vitamin D has been associated with the following conditions:
* adrenal insufficiency
* autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid
* cancers of the colon, breast, skin and prostate
* depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
* diabetes, Type 1 and 2
* gluten intolerance, lectin intolerance
* heart disease, hypertension, Syndrome X
* learning and behavior disorders
* misaligned teeth and cavities
* osteopenia, osteoporosis, osteomalacia (adult rickets)
