Supplementing our diet with vitamin D can provide a variety of health benefits including protection from swine flu, infections of all kind, osteoporosis, depression and breast cancer. It also plays an important role in heart health, prostate health, colon health, eye health, bone health and blood pressure.
However, be sure you are taking the right form. There are two forms of Vitamin D – Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. The form you should be taking is Vitamin D3. Vitamin D2 is a cheaper, synthetic form that the body cannot process very well.
Vitamin D3 has been found to be 300 times more effective than Vitamin D2.
