Vitamin D: The New Powerhouse Cancer Fighter

Recent studies indicate that vitamin D has extraordinary cancer-fighting properties. Can this nutrient be a breakthrough in the fight against cancer?

Researchers at Creighton University in Omaha conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled trial, the most reliable form of clinical information obtained. Among 1,179 community-living, healthy, post-menopausal women, they reported last year in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that over the course of four years, those that took calcium and 1,100 International Units of vitamin D-3 developed roughly 80% fewer cancers than those that just took calcium or a placebo. What an extraordinary endorsement for the benefits of vitamin D!

Vitamin D is quickly becoming the powerhouse nutrient and for good reason. Vitamin D has significant benefits and with the latest findings we are discovering that the current RDA for vitamin D might be dramatically low. Currently the RDA for vitamin D is 400 I.U. Probably over the next few years, as the information uncovered by these types of studies is finalized and the information gets processed by the FDA, you will see a dramatic increase in the RDA for vitamin D.

Vitamin D is not just beneficial in reducing the risk of cancer. Vitamin D has many significant responsibilities in the body. These include...

*Maintaining Your Calcium Balance
*Immune Boosting
*Plays a role in Insulin Secretion
*Regulates Blood Pressure
*Disease Prevention

Many of you may know that vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin as opposed to a water-soluble vitamin like vitamin C for instance. The danger with fat-soluble vitamins is that it is possible to overdose and develop vitamin-toxicity. Healthy people rarely get vitamin D toxicity. One should not be concerned about this unless they are taking extremely high amounts consistently, such as 7,000 - 10,000 I.U.s. It is also important to note that developing vitamin D toxicity to overexposure of sunlight is not a legitimate concern.

It is very difficult to get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat. Vitamin D is no exception and there are a wide range of vitamin D supplements in the marketplace. We strongly recommend getting your vitamin D in a non-synthetic vitamin D3 form and definitely take it with calcium in the proper ratios.
