Breast Cancer Awareness and Vitamin D

on October 20, 2011

If you aren’t living under a rock, you probably know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From pink socks on the football field to pink ribbons on storefronts and massive crowds of pink runners and walkers downtown, it’s the one time of year where every single man, women and child is proud to wear pink.

Speaking of men wearing pink, while we all know that there are several factors that create the potential for women or men to develop breast cancer and yes, men do develop breast cancer – not in the same numbers, but it is not solely a woman’s disease.

 

There is a decided link between the vitamin D deficiency and breast cancer.  In October of 2007, the Oxford Journal posted a research article on the effects of Vitamin D3 and post-menopausal breast cancer. The remarkable and historical research  “strongly suggested a protective effect for post-menopausal breast cancer through a better vitamin D supply”.

 

According to widespread research, a supplement be added to any daily diet – the food we eat today is so depleted from vitamins and nutrients that it is impossible to eat enough food to get the necessary vitamins, minerals and nutrients that our body needs to support a healthy lifestyle.

 

“It is true that fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion:

Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows. Sadly, each successive generation of fast-growing, pest-resistant carrot is truly less good for you than the one before.” Scientific American

 

With Cardio-Juvenate+ you get 2500 U.I. of vitamin D3 per serving…ensuring you get the right dose each and every day.   Key ingredients include L-arginine, L-citrulline, Folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin K, Vitamin D plus 72 trace minerals.

  1. Thank you for this report! We get so focused on women’s health but this is a great reminder that men get breast cancer too. I appreciate the information about the link between vitamin D3 and breast health!
