Vitamin D for Women

A short and sweet version of why we need this supplement

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for women. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. Fat-soluble means that they are dissolved in fat and are stored in tissue, so the body has access to them as needed. Your body will not flush out access to fat-soluble vitamins, so it is important you are taking the correct amounts.

Vitamin D is best known for supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal tract. At the same time, deficiency and insufficiency have become a worldwide epidemic, making achieving optimal levels more important than ever to overall health and well-being. Low levels of vitamin D may interfere with the normal development of teeth and bones, cellular growth, and regulation of the immune and nervous systems. Click here for my favorite brand.

Maternal vitamin D deficiency can cause adverse health outcomes, which include abnormal fetal growth patterns, adverse birth outcomes (such as preterm birth, and reproductive failure (Preeclampsia). It is important that if you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, vitamin D is a part of your prenatal regimen.

I like to take Vitamin D when I am feeling more anxious, or stressed, or know I will not be in adequate amounts of sunlight. Vitamin D is important for women in those winter months or those who suffer from seasonal affective disorder. There have been many studies showing the benefits of Vitamin D and mood disorders.

As always, discuss Vitamin D supplementation with your healthcare professional.
