I’m on a mission for great men’s health. I’m going to share the best men’s health supplement, vitamin D, with you as I review the different types of men’s health supplements.
Vitamin D is one of the most common nutrients in the human diet. In the US alone, more than half of the U.S. population is deficient in this nutrient. As it turns out, a shortage of vitamin D can cause serious health problems. If you get too much, you can’t produce enough of this important nutrient, which then causes a number of issues, from bone loss to cancer.
If you have this nutrient deficiency, you are then at risk of getting cancer, which is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, especially among young men with low levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiencies occur in a variety of disorders, including rickets, osteomalacia, and some neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
Vitamin D plays an important role in the health of bone tissue. We get enough vitamin D from our diet, but most of the time it is lost through our skin or by UV rays from the sun. If you are vitamin D deficient, you can develop skin cancer, bone loss, or neurological and digestive disorders.
One of the most common ways we can get vitamin D is through our diet, but not all sources of vitamin D are equally healthy. Vitamin D deficiency can occur in a variety of disorders, including rickets, osteomalacia, and some neurological conditions, such as Parkinsons Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. If you are vitamin D deficient, you can develop skin cancer, bone loss, or neurological and digestive disorders.
Vitamin D is necessary for bone and cartilage growth, healthy muscle tone, and the maintenance of bone cell membranes. Vitamin D deficiency is often seen in osteoporosis and in neurological and digestive disorders. It is recommended that people with osteoporosis and those with neurological and digestive disorders take daily supplements of vitamin D.
The recommendation is to get at least 75-90% of your vitamin D from dietary sources, such as oily fish and fortified dairy products, fruits, and vegetables. It is easy to become vitamin D deficient when you don’t get enough sunlight.
I’m currently trying to keep myself within the bounds of good vitamin D levels (over 75), and my current dosage is around 400-500 units.
The idea of taking 1,000 units of vitamin D a day for several months just seems extreme, but this is exactly the kind of vitamin D that can help you get your bones strong. It doesn’t take much to make your bones stronger.
Since vitamin D is the strongest form of vitamin D in our bodies, it makes sense to consider it one of the most important supplements to take. It also helps build strong bones.
