Journey Vitamin D3 5000IU Sunshine Jellies - 30 servings
THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY OF VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTATION IN BARIATRIC SURGERY PATIENTS
When I work on a white paper, I will often review at least 25 or 30 research papers on the topic. I have to tell you that in my years of reviewing research, I have never seen more definitive information regarding a nutritional deficiency and the resultant need for supplementation as I have with regards to Vitamin D and bariatric surgery patients. - Dr. Andrew Myers
Are you Vitamin D deficient? Your risk is increased to levels approaching 100% if you are overweight, obese or have had bariatric surgery.
Vitamin D Boosts Bone Health
Vitamin D is critical for strong bones. It helps the body absorb calcium from food. In older adults with osteoporosis, a daily dose of Vitamin D and Calcium helps to prevent fractures and brittle bones.
Vitamin D and Weight Loss
Studies have shown that people who are obese often have low blood levels of vitamin D. Body fat traps vitamin D, making it less available to the body. It's not clear whether obesity itself causes a low vitamin D level or if it's the other way around. But one small study of dieters suggests that adding vitamin D to a calorie-restricted diet may help overweight people with low vitamin D levels lose weight more easily.
Vitamin D and Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is more common far away from the sunny equator. For years, experts have suspected a link between sunlight, vitamin D levels, and this autoimmune disorder that damages the nerves.
Vitamin D and Diabetes
Some studies have shown a link between a low vitamin D level and type 1 and type 2 diabetes. While we know obesity is a risk for both vitamin D deficiency and type 2 diabetes, we don't yet know if there is a causal relationship between diabetes and vitamin D levels.
Vitamin D and Colon Cancer
It's too soon to make a strong case for vitamin D as an overall cancer-fighter. But some earlier studies suggested that people with higher levels of vitamin D in their blood may have a lower risk for colon cancer.
Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency
Most people with low blood levels of vitamin D don't notice any symptoms. A severe deficiency in adults can cause soft bones, called osteomalacia. The symptoms include bone pain and muscle weakness.
