Add Some Sunshine to Your Day with Vitamin D

The Vitamin D-lemma - Americans aren't getting enough

Your body produces Vitamin D every time the suns UVB rays hit your skin.  That’s why it is also known as the Sunshine Vitamin.

Go outside and soak up some sun for 15 to 20 minutes.  BAM! You just converted the sun’s rays into a day’s supply.  Seems pretty simple doesn’t it?

But 80% of Americans are lacking enough Vitamin D. 

Why is Vitamin D important?

D is not really a vitamin.  It is a prohormone.  Your body converts it into active hormones that target over 200 different genes.  That means vitamin D is critical to good health.

Just look at a few of the things it does for us…
  • Increases calcium absorption
  • Reduces osteoporosis
  • Supports strong digestion
  • Protects against colon cancer
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Improves memory
  • Improves concentration
  • Aids proper cell reproduction
  • Improves breast health
  • Improves prostate health

Why am I lacking?

Go Outside. Stand in the Sun. A simple recipe for getting enough Vitamin.  Hard to believe 80% of all Americans don’t get enough.

  • We all stay indoors more and when we do go out we slather ourselves with sunscreen.  That’s a great plan to avoid skin cancer but a terrible one for getting Vitamin D.
  • And if you are like me, eating chicken livers, sardines, tuna and drinking lots of milk is not in your daily diet plan.  No help increasing your D this way.
  • Vitamin D is stored in fat cells.  Obesity keeps the vitamin locked up in fat cells where it can’t be used.
  • Age also slows your body down.  You can’t convert Vitamin D like you could when you were a kid.

What do I need to do?

Supplement your diet with a quality Vitamin D3.  D3 is a much better choice than Vitamin D2.  Your body will absorb it better. 

The secret word is quality.  Lots of companies will jump on the bandwagon when a product is in demand.  Not many companies take the time and do the research to produce a good product.

A good product is one that does what it says it will.  It does it without adding a bunch of artificial flavors and colors.  Supplements don’t need fillers and toxins to make them work.

You only have one body.  Why make the effort to improve your health by taking Vitamin D if you are going to take one full of unhealthy ingredients.  Don’t do more harm than good.

Here’s to your health.
