VITAMIN D-THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
New research has shown two thirds of us have low Vitamin D levels , particularly after winter months. The action of sunlight on skin helps to produce our main source of Vitamin D with small amounts available in food such as eggs, oily fish and milk. Vitamin D is well known to be essential for healthy bones, teeth and to aid the absorption of calcium in our body, but it has many other benefits. A daily dose of Vitamin D can help to both prevent disease and to support the immune system. For example, post-menopausal women by taking Vitamin D can reduce their risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Studies show that Vitamin D may reduce risk of breast, prostrate and bowel cancer. It can also be of benefit in psoriasis, reduce the incidence of colds and flu and improve joint mobility in those over 60 years. Vitamin D is best absorbed in the D3 form and as it is relatively inexpensive, everyone should reap the newly discovered benefits of a daily dose of Vitamin D! For further information, ask you pharmacist for advice when taking any vitamin supplement along with prescribed medication. Paula Morgan, Orchard Pharmacy 23 Mandeville St., Portadown Tel.3833 2824
