Vitamin D Supplements
Vitamin D Supplements made from 100% Whole Food Ingredients provide our bodies with the necessary nutrient and the amino acids and sterols in the plant that help us utilize vitamin D.
Vitamin D deficiency is incredibly high in our society. The detrimental health issues that can result from Vitamin D deficiency are vast. Supplementation with a 100% Whole Food Source of vitamin D will help address these deficiencies and improve health consequences. This form of vitamin D is known as vitamin D3.
Supplementation with vitamin D3 has been shown in studies to reduce the rate of hip fractures by nearly 60%. It has also been shown to increase bone density in a two year long study on 70 year old women. The control group who did not receive vitamin D3 lost bone density.
These studies indicate that supplementing with vitamin D3 can be helpful for individuals living in a nursing home, those who do not get outside often, and those who live far from the equator.
Vitamin D stimulates the absorption of calcium in our intestinal tracts.
Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D deficiency is common for a number of reasons. We tend to have reduced exposure to sunlight and when we are in the sun, tend to use sunscreen.
As we age, our skins' ability to absorb vitamin D decreases, so our levels tend to be reduced.
If we live further away from the equator, the sunlight we are exposed to is weak by comparison to the sunlight exposure closer to the equator.
Excessive Vitamin D can be harmful, so high doses of this vitamin for long peroids of time must be monitored by bloodwork.
