Dr. Heidi Semanie

Dr. Heidi Semanie is back on the show to teach us things we didn’t know about vitamin D! Every major aspect of your health is influenced by D.

It’s common knowledge that vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin because our body uses the sunshine to make it. And in the winter, we can suffer from Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder (S.A.D.), or low D levels, which are linked to depression.

Dr. Heidi explains that our body needs D to utilize Calcium, a major mineral our bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues need to function!  So, without vitamin D, we cannot healthfully use calcium!

Vitamin D is also linked to aiding the body in cancer prevention, and in the event the body is fighting cancer, it has been linked to helping the body create healthy tissue.

Lower D levels are found in those with neurological disorders like MS and Parkinsons as well as in mood disorders like depression.
