Vitamin D- The Sunshine Vitamin

The body produces vitamin D as a response to sun light. Many foods also contain vitamin D, such as fish, egg yolk, fish liver oil and in dairy and grain products that have been fortified.

The body needs vitamin D in order to maintain strong bones by allowing the body to use calcium food in food. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to rickets, which is a disease that affects bone tissue leading to soft bones.

Vitamin D can help prevent and treat conditions, such as type 1 & 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, hypertension and glucose intolerance.

Causes of Vitamin D deficiency:

  • not consuming daily recommended levels of Vitamin D
  • you have dark skin
  • not getting enough sun light exposure
  • the digestive can't adequately absorb vitamin D
  • the kidneys can't convert vitamin D
  • obesity
A simple blood test can be done to determine the level of vitamin D deficiency. Taking the daily recommended dosage of vitamin D is a simple treatment for vitamin D deficiency.

The recommended dosages are:
  • Adult and Children up to age 50- 5 mcg or 200 IU
  • Age 51-70- 10 mcg or 400 IU
  • Over 70- 15 mcg or 600 IU
Spend some time in the sun and soak up all the free vitamin D your body can handle. Why let it go to waste? Remember that sun screen blocks the absorption of sun light that is needed to be converted.

Use moderation when out in the sun. Too much can be harmful to the skin.

Basic Understanding of Herbal Remedy Potency Levels

Herbal home remedies can be purchased or homemade and come in several different forms and potencies. Herbal home remedies are available in liquid, tablet, pellet and cream forms.

Although, herbal home remedies come in many forms and can be purchased premade from many health food stores, quality is best ensured if these remedies were made by you fresh at home.

When purchasing and using herbal home remedies, it is important to know the potency identification system used to determine the strength of the herbal remedy.

The system used is normally combined with a number and letter combination listed after the name of the remedy, such as 30c, 12c, 6x, 12x, etc. The 30c would be stronger than a 12c.

Here are the basic number and letter systems and what they mean:

M-(millesimal)= 1 part substance to 1000 parts dilution. This is the strongest potency level and stays in the body the longest and is usually prescribed by a practitioner.

C- (centesimal)= 1 part substance to 99 part dilution. This is a medium level potency. Used for seasonal or chronic problems.

X- (decimal)= 1 part substance to 10 part dilution. This is the lowest level potency. Used for children, sudden illnesses, and in first aid treatment. Stays in the body for a short period of time and is normally in tablet form.

Each level of potency has different time frames and dosages needed depending on the severity of the health problem. If you make your own herbal home remedies, it is important that you receive adequate training so that your remedies become effective and not harmful.
