Vitamin S

Vitamins play an important role in our health. They allow us to grow and develop as well as aiding in many bodily functions.  They can help us maintain a healthy mind, body and spirit.  Fat soluble vitamins can remain in the body for up to six months, but water soluble vitamins aren’t stored in the body and therefore need to be constantly replenished.

There are many ways to help our bodies get the vitamins it needs. For instance, we can eat oranges, kiwi, red and green peppers, strawberries or broccoli to aid our Vitamin C intake. Or we can make sure to get out in the sun so that our bodies will naturally form Vitamin D. But, what about Vitamin S? Wait. What? You’ve never heard of Vitamin S? Oh dear. Even with all the nutrition information we have at our fingertips these days it seems there isn’t much awareness about this important vitamin and the role it can play in our overall well-being.

Vitamin S is a water soluble vitamin. As such it is easily absorbed by the body, but it also needs to be replenished on a regular basis.

A few of the benefits you may see by maintaining a proper level
of Vitamin S are:
  • Clearer thinking
  • Better ability to focus
  • Stress Relief
  • Increased sex drive
  • Mood stabilization: feeling of overall well-being

Unfortunately one of the tricky things about supplementing with Vitamin S is that there currently are no guidelines in place regarding RDA (recommended dietary allowance) and AI (adequate intake) or UI (tolerable upper intake level or maximum intake). Early research indicates that the level needed may actually vary depending on the person as well as changing over time. As such the current recommendation is to start out with a low intake and gradually increase until maximum benefits are experienced. You can always raise or lower your intake depending upon how you’re feeling. But, remember that in order to maintain your Vitamin S level you will need to supplement regularly.

April Fools!!!

There is no such thing as Vitamin S!

Or is there?

Actually, according to Michael there is.  The S stands for spanking.  And Michael says that in order for me to maintain a proper level I need to take Vitamin S at least once a week.  If that's the case, I'm woefully low right now and have been for months.  Hopefully Michael will help me increase my intake soon so that I can get back to feeling the maximum benefits of maintaining a proper level of Vitamin S.  ;)
