Research suggests that women with low levels of vitamin D have a higher risk of breast cancer.
I am a 15-year breast cancer survivor and advocate. When I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer it wasn’t until 3 years later that I was tested for Vitamin D deficiency. Now of course the research is much more proactive with testing for Vitamin D. Spoiler alert, many insurances will not pay for a screening but the blood test is usually under $75.00 for cash out of pocket and well worth it!
Let’s look at some of the data.
How about this?
“Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, which is essential for good bone health. Vitamin D also helps the immune, muscle, and nervous systems function properly. … Research suggests that women with low levels of vitamin D have a higher risk of breast cancer.”
With sunscreen in our makeup and using it in the summer, we are screening out natural Vitamin D all the time. If like me you live in a part of the country where for 4-5 months the sun is a foreign body in the sky, natural absorption from Vitamin D is not so easy!
And Last but not least:
“Although there are not yet enough clinical trials in humans to prove this, some clinical and preclinical studies indicate that avoiding vitamin D deficiency and taking vitamin D supplements might be a cost-effective and safe way to prevent cancer and improve prognosis in patients already diagnosed with the illness.
To me the takeaway points here are: “cost effective” and “improve diagnosis”!
This really lends credibility to my support of the Cal-EZ product from FitFormula Wellness.
Here is what Cal-EZ does not have:
- artificial colors or flavors
Cal-EZ product meets or exceeds applicable purity standards, including GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and California Proposition 65.
Here is what the product does have:
Vitamin D3: 1,00 IU
Calcium: 1,000 mg (Calcium Carbonate)
The daily dose powdered packet mixes well in my coffee with no taste. Easy peasy to use.
What I also like is that you can buy an inexpensive monthly subscription. I know I am not alone in forgetting to buy something and it goes on the list again and again and certainly you don’t want that forgotten item to be your D!
$12.99/month / 30 packets and free shipping.
