Vitamin D Daily
Vitamin D3 - 5,000 I.U.
Sunlight exposure is necessary for Vitamin D synthesis in the skin. It is transported to the liver and converted to 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Most of us don’t get the required 20 minutes each day of direct sun on our skin to maintain healthy blood levels of Vitamin D. This vitamin D3 is the easily absorbed form, Cholecalciferol.†
Vitamin D deficiency is more common than previously thought. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that the percentage of adults achieving Vitamin D sufficiency as defined by 25(OH)D of at least 30 ng/mL has declined from about 60% in 1988-1994 to approximately 30% in 2001-2004 in whites and from about 10% to approximately 5% in African Americans during this same time.
This means approximately 60% of Americans are considered deficient in Vitamin D, and seniors are much more prone to such deficiency than younger people.†
Research demonstrates that Vitamin D plays many important roles in long term health besides bone preservation.†
Vitamin D also assists with
- Supple Joints
- Healthy Vascular System
- Strong Heart
- Better Brain Function
- Diminished Fibromyalgia Discomfort
- Robust Immune System
- Muscular Conditions
- Enduring Eyesight
- Less Age-Related Decline
- Sturdy Bones and Vertebrae
- Overall Health
If you have dark skin, use sun block, live above latitude 37 (Denver), or are over the age of 50, you need more Vitamin D daily.†
