We can hardly stress enough how important vitamin D is for you. Some of you may be wondering why there is so much vitamin D in our d-pinitol formula.
In the full article on our site, we list a number of previous newsletter articles that review the benefits of vitamin D for ovarian health and reducing insulin resistance.
We then go on to review some new research data about vitamin D. Several studies indicate a correlation between low levels of vitamin D and an increased incidence of breast cancer. One study suggested that intake of 2,000 IU of vitamin D could increase vitamin D levels in your body enough to reduce the incidence of breast cancer by 50%. Fifty percent is a very big drop in risk!
The other interesting study showed large doses of vitamin D for one year were useful for depression in people who were overweight.
In summary, there are multiple health benefits from making sure your vitamin D levels are optimal. You may need to take a significant amount of supplemental vitamin D to reach an optimal level. This is why there is so much vitamin D in the d-pinitol product.
