For our health in general, and our cardiovascular system specifically, natural support with certain vitamins is indispensable. Including vitamin D. Fortunately, nature offers us the sun as one of the prime sources in this case. With caution and moderation. Read on to learn about the vital details.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
pending most per capita for conventional medicine in the industrialized world, the U.S. is foremost in this field of expertise. With special reference to our cardiovascular system.
Historically documented by, inter alia,
The back side of this shiny medal:
According to statistics of the World Health Organization (WHO), in our industrialized world (with U.S. on top),
- 86% of non-age-related deaths
- 77% of all ailments combined are the consequence of ‘chronic’ diseases - unsolved with conventional medicine.
- heart failure
on top, followed by
(half a century after U.S. President Nixon declared the ‘War on Cancer’)
(with a most prescribed drug worldwide, being rich of side effects but offering no cure)
In fact, according to WHO, almost 20 million people die each year of heart disease. I.e. one third of all (premature) deaths are cardiovascular related. With special reference to respective lifestyle, diet and genetic background. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A vicious cycle? Not necessarily....
NATURE’S POWER OF SUNSHINE – SCIENTIFICALLY VERIFIED
As you know from our previous publications, nature offers us many (not to say: unlimited…) remedies and modalities to bolster our health and longevity. With special reference to minerals and vitamins.
Including vitamin D. Not only to support bones and teeth but our immune system in general.
Now we learn from research of the Australian Centre for Precision Health at the University of South Australia that a lack of vitamin D in our body may have quite a negative impact on our heart health specifically.
As verified, inter alia, also by the Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, CA.
Leaves us with the question how and where to get vitamin D for our body.
According to, inter alia, the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, there are foods containing vitamin D such as:
Even more, exposure to the sun is another healthy - and easy – way to tap vitamin D and store it in our body.
With the ultimate benefit to receive adequate vitamin D naturally as our skin produces vitamin D when exposed to UVB rays of the sun in a moderate way.
According to research at, inter alia, the University of Bonn and the Heart and Diabetes Center North Rhine-Westphalia in Bad Oyenhausen – both in Germany.
With basic factors involved:
20 minutes in areas and at times with an UV index of 1 or less seems appropriate. This is usually the case in the morning or before sunset, even in areas with high UV index during the day.
Unfortunate, long office hours and spending much time in front of TV, thus diminishing sun exposure, may well be counterproductive especially for heart health.
IN A NUTSHELL
For our health in general, and our cardiovascular system specifically, natural support with certain vitamins is indispensable. With special reference to vitamin D. While we can – and should - take this vitamin, besides many other healthy nutrients, from appropriate food, nature offers us also the sun as a prime source in this case if tapped moderate. For free!
