Did you know that Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin? It is a prohormone. A prohormone is produced by the body and converted to a hormone. While Vitamin D is essential for bone health, it is also an excellent vitamin for women during menopause.
Estrogen is a vitamin D helper. It helps to increase the levels of the enzyme needed to produce vitamin D in the body. As estrogen levels decline through menopause vitamin D production is lowered creating a deficiency or an imbalance in the Vitamin D pro hormone, also known as calcitriol, ergocalciferol, calcidiol and cholecalciferol.
There are multiple reasons beyond menopause to put Vitamin D into your daily regimen. Research studies have shown Vitamin D has been linked to preventing osteoporosis, mood issues like depression, diabetes, and promoting weight loss, so making sure your getting enough Vitamin D, especially through the transition to menopause, is extra important.
