Vitamin D is generating renewed interest as ongoing research demonstrates its crucial role in preventing a wide range of medical disorders, including coronary artery disease, many cancer, stroke, osteoporosis, insulin resistance, muscular degeneration, depression, hypertension, diabetes, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic back pain and impaired immune responses.
Obesity increases the risk of clinical deficiency since vitamin D is deposited in body fat stores. Those with large amounts of body fat trap vitamin D in these stores of fat, making it less available for beneficial uses. Recommended daily requirements of vitamin D are increasing. Since it is difficult to ingest or synthesize (exposing skin to sunlight) sufficient D to meet these new standards, daily consumption of up to 10,000 International Units of vitamin D3 has been recommended.
