Maintaining a normal vitamin D blood level is important for so many reasons, and the list keeps growing. Recent research has discovered two additional benefits from maintaining a high blood level of vitamin D, reduced risk cancer at all sites in the body and stronger muscles in general.
Here are eight reasons for getting enough vitamin D
Stronger immune system
Reduces cancer risk
Reduced risk of weak, brittle bones (osteoporosis) and fractures
Reduced knee osteoarthritis pain
Improved muscle function
Help with depression
Protection from lead and mercury poisoning
The Institute of Medicine recommends 600 IU of vitamin D for adults up to age 70 and 800 IU for senior citizens ages 70 and older.
