Ok so you either stay out of the sun or you’re always covered in SPF200 sun block, either way, you’re probably fat or on your way to getting fat. Why, because you’re not producing enough vitamin D. Vitamin D helps to keep you thin. So if you hate the sun, at least embrace vitamin D supplementation.
(NaturalNews) “Excess body weight and abdominal obesity represent an astounding threat to the health of millions of men, women and children worldwide. Over the past century obesity has been relatively rare, affecting less than 1% of the population at the turn of the 20th century. Today the number of obese individuals is 34% and continues to grow steadily. We have become grossly deficient in vitamin D as we shun sun exposure and rely on inept supplemental recommendations. Researchers have discovered that this super nutrient is required to metabolize stored fat and that more than 60% of people tested are severely deficient. You can help your body burn abdominal fat and lose weight naturally by regulating your vitamin D intake.”
“Study Shows Vitamin D Becomes Locked in Fat Cells”
“The results of a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism reveal that 59% of young women tested had too little circulating vitamin D and nearly one-quarter were grossly deficient in the active form of the vitamin. Vitamin D insufficiency has been shown to be a factor in the accumulation of excess body fat as the fat-soluble vitamin becomes locked away in adipocytes (fat cells). In the absence of sufficient vitamin D the body increases the number and size of newly formed fat cells that promote and accelerate abdominal obesity.”
“Low Vitamin D Linked to Fat Accumulation and Cancer”
“Vitamin D is actually a prohormone that becomes activated in the kidneys, and it becomes a potent hormone that controls the growth of cells. In the absence of sufficient circulating levels of the active form, both adipocytes and cancer cells are allowed to multiply relatively unchecked. Sufficient levels of vitamin D signal fat cells to shrink. This makes weight loss much easier when calories are restricted and also keeps cancer cell growth in check…”
