Scientists have discovered that vitamin D may do more for you than promote healthy bones. It’s proving to be beneficial in preventing and managing numerous health conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, skin disorders (seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis), and metabolic syndrome; averting stroke; preventing tooth loss; supporting lung health; protecting muscle strength; and modulating autoimmune disease. It also is recognized as an important weapon in the fight against cancer.

You can obtain your vitamin D through prudent sun exposure and supplementation. Most adults safely tolerate up to 2,000 IU of vitamin D daily.
