Micro-Nutrients Vitamin-D

This is a Fat-Soluble Vitamin. It is stored in our body and is manufactured by our Skin as it gets exposed to Sunlight. The two forms of Vitamin-D are Ergocalciferol (D2) & Cholecalciferol (D3, This Form is synthesised in the Skin by the action of Ultraviolet Rays).

What Vitamin-D is: It performs following functions in The Body:

  • Regulates Mineral Metabolism (~ Mineral balance in the Body) (Cell & Tissue growth),
  • Works with Calcium (Helps Body Absorb & Assimilate Calcium) to Build Body Structure-Bones,
  • Maintains appropriate levels of Calcium & Phosphorous in Our Blood-Plasma System,
  • Provides our Body The Proper Bone Health,
  • Regulates our Immune System & Cellular Functions…

Reasons for Shortage of Vitamin-D: Excess use of Sun-Screens (Chemical Laden), Darker Skin Pigmentation, Latitudes Greater than 40 Degrees (N or S), Ageing Process, Winter season are the major causes.

Vitamin-D Deficiency may lead to:

  • Osteoporosis-Rickets (Soft-Weak Bones-other Bone Disorders),
  • High Blood Pressure,
  • Diabetes,
  • Heart Ailments (Vitamin D helps absorption of Calcium => Low Vitamin D = Built up of Calcium in The Arteries (A Part of Plaque),
  • Obesity,
  • Depression,
  • Various Cancers (Breast, Colon, Prostate, Skin & Pancreas),
  • Auto-immune Disorders and so on…

Rich Source of Vitamin-D:    Sunlight is one of The Best Source.

Plant Sources:           Dark Greens, Cereals, Flax Oil,

Animal Sources:        A-2 Milk, A-2 Ghee, Eggs.

My View it is best to Avoid Synthetic Supplements and Only Go in For Organic Sources.

Daily Recommended Values:

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
