Healthy bones are just one important part of vitamin D’s role in your health. From your brain to your extremities, it has a significant role in your body, at every age.
Ro Atkinson's insight:
A lot of research has pointed towards liver improvement and detoxification for all manner of problems. At their root it seems vitamin D is a major foundation in many areas. Additionally as stated in this article vitamin D also actually makes a difference of about 5 years in Longevity. It would probably make the preceding years far more comfortable as well.

Resveratrol May Not Be The Elixir In Red Wine And Chocolate

Red wine and chocolate may be good for you, but it's likely not from the resveratrol. A study finds that the antioxidant had no influence on longevity, cancer, heart disease or inflammation levels.

19 Super Foods That Naturally Cleanse Your Liver

19 Super Foods That Naturally Cleanse Your Liver | Life Extension | Scoop.it
We live in a world where disease is constantly on the rise. This should come as no surprise as the environment we choose to surround ourselves with is extremely toxic i.e. our food, air, water etc.
