Because osteoporosis occurs more commonly in women, it is important to monitor your level of 25-hydroxy Vitamin D.  You should aim for levels of 50 to 60 nmol/liter.  Dr. Marina Johnson Brand Vitamin D3 provides significant support for healthy bone density, is necessary for utilization of calcium and phosphorus and in many ways acts as a hormone.

Recent studies (NEJM 357:266-281, 2007; AJClin.Nutrition 85(3): 649-50,2007) highlight the importance of Vitamin D not only for healthy bones but also for the prevention of diabetes, cancer and autoimmune conditions. Dr Michael Holick from Harvard has stated that deficiency is common and estimates that 1 billion people on the planet are deficient in vitamin D, especially the elderly and those who get limited exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D3 has long been called the Sunshine Vitamin because this important nutrient can be synthesized from cholesterol when sunlight hits the skin. Vitamin D is technically a hormone that research shows holds promise in a host of other benefits. Among these benefits are strengthening the immune system and preventing certain types of cancer such as breast, colon and prostate cancer. Along with proper calcium levels and exercise, Vitamin D plays an essential role in the prevention of osteoporosis. Emerging research shows a positive link between adequate Vitamin D levels and decreasing the risk of hypertension, stroke and metabolic syndrome. Those who live in climates where sun exposure is limited and the elderly are particularly susceptible to Vitamin D deficiency.

Individuals are encouraged to consult with their health care providers for the proper amounts of Vitamin D to meet their unique needs.
