Did you realize that you have a vitamin D deficiency? These are the 7 foods rich in Vitamin D according to the nutritionist

Did you realize that you have a vitamin D deficiency? These are the 7 foods rich

Getting enough vitamin D in childhood can turn out to be an excellent investment for your health in the years to come.

This vitamin is very important for the well-being of our bones. People think that a complete diet is enough, but in the case of vitamin D, few foods contain it.

For example, to get the necessary amount of vitamin D, we must consume salmon or cod or sardines every day. In order to increase the absorbability of this vitamin in our body, it is necessary to be sufficiently exposed to the sun and take a supplement to use the vitamin activated by sunlight.

Undoubtedly, the diet plays an important role since taking foods with magnesium, such as spinach or beans, make possible the optimal function of vitamin D.

The many "faces" of vitamin D - Decades ago, experts thought that vitamin D was only necessary for bones and teeth. New advances in science have placed this substance under close observation and have noticed that it is a multi-functional vitamin for our body. Vitamin D reduces the risk of many strokes, something that was not known before.

Unfortunately, working in closed environments has contributed to the emergence of the deficiency of this precious vitamin. And the bad doesn't end there: most people don't even care to know if they have a vitamin D deficiency.

Do I have vitamin D deficiency? The best way to find out is to take a test which will evaluate its levels in your time.

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with these health conditions:

1. Influenza - Lack of vitamin D predisposes children to get sick more often from pink eye that affects the respiratory tract. Vitamin D reduces the frequency of children's respiratory infections.

2. Muscle weakness - There are many possibilities to feel muscle weakness if you do not have enough vitamin D in your blood. For a type of muscles, it is necessary that their receptors are supported by vitamin D for them to function properly.

3. Psoriasis - Synthesized analogues of vitamin D have been found useful in the treatment of psoriasis

4. Chronic kidney disease - Patients suffering from this disease need to take vitamin D3 supplements to support calcium metabolism, to reduce the risk of bone damage and to regulate parathyroid hormone levels.

5. Diabetes - A study conducted in Finland studied the results of 10,366 children who were injected with vitamin D3 on the first day of life. They were watched for the next 31 years. They observed that these children were 80% less likely to develop Type 1 diabetes.

6. Asthma – Vitamin D can reduce the severity of asthma attacks. This conclusion was drawn after a study in Japan where school children who received a vitamin D supplement of 1200IU/day had milder asthma attacks compared to children who did not receive the supplement.

7. Toothache - This disease that causes the teeth to wear out and the gums to swell can be avoided but also combated by increasing the level of vitamin D as the latter produces ingredients with antimicrobial properties that reduce the number of bacteria in the mouth. .

8. Heart disease - Heart failure is associated with vitamin D deficiency. Women with low levels of vitamin D have a 70% greater risk of developing heart failure!

9. Schizophrenia and Depression - These two disorders are also associated with a lack of vitamin D. It is necessary to maintain optimal levels of vitamin D during adolescence and childhood to "satisfy" the vitamin D receptors in the brain, and this is important for mental development and functioning in adult life.

10. Cancer - A link has been discovered between high levels of vitamin D in the blood and a lower risk of breast cancer! Therefore, save umbrellas only for rainy days!

Prevention is action - These vitamin D-related health situations should not scare you. You just have to act. Consume foods rich in vitamin D more often, such as: sardines, salmon, cod, tuna, beef liver, egg yolks, cheese. And the best source? The sun!
