Surprising new research reveals that vitamin D is not just for bone health. It plays a critical role in the health of the brain and nervous systems, and the cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as in pregnancy and child development. One recent study found that people who took vitamin D supplements had a 7% lower risk of death than those who did not, and many ailments are now being linked to vitamin D deficiency.
Called the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is formed naturally in the skin by exposure to sunlight. But when a person does not get enough sun exposure, their body cannot make sufficient vitamin D.

Drug interactions: Many drugs cause vitamin D deficiencies because they interfere with the absorption and/or metabolism of vitamin D, including cholestyramine (Questran), colestipol (Colestid), phenytoin (Dilantin), phenobarbital, orlistat (Xenical), and mineral oil. Also, corticosteroids, such as prednisone, increase the need for vitamin D.
Contraindications: People using digoxin (Lanoxin) and thiazide diuretics should consult a health care practitioner before supplementing with vitamin D. People with liver or kidney disease, primary hyperthyroidism, lymphoma, tuberculo- sis and granulomatous diseases should consult a health care practitioner before supplementing with vitamin D.
Most people experience some degree of vitamin D3 deficiency, but an explosion of research is showing that taking a vitamin D3 supplement can improve physical and mental health, and reduce the risk of infections and degenerative diseases.
