Stronger immunity, better sleep and stronger bones are within your easy reach!
D has been in the forefront of the medical world with all of the recent
discoveries as to the significance of this essential nutrient for
overall health and well being. Nicknamed the "Sunshine Vitamin", Vitamin
D is unique among all other vitamins because it is the only conditional
one and must be synthesized in the skin from exposure to ultraviolet
radiation from sunlight.
Concerns over skin cancer caused by
overexposure to sunlight have prompted many to use sufficient sun block
or limit exposure to a degree that can create a deficiency of Vitamin D
produced by the body. But, in fact, a lack of Vitamin D is now linked to
various forms of cancer, including malignant melanoma and colon cancer.
Interestingly, more and more health practitioners have begun to
connect the dots between Vitamin D deficiency and various sleep
disorders. Vitamin D deficiencies can also drastically weaken the immune
system, bones and brain function. For these reasons many physicians are
now recommending their patients take levels of Vitamin D far in excess
of the Recognized Daily Value (RDA).
Vitamin D supplements are
available in two forms, D-3 (cholecalciferol) which is the natural form
and D-2, (ergocalciferol) which is produced by radiating fungus. Derived
from lanolin, each small, easy to swallow tablet provides 5000 IU of
natural Vitamin D-3.
