Vitamin D3 1000IU - 60 capsules
Vitamin D is a unique type of vitamin because it acts more like a steroid hormone than a dietary aid and isn't readily available in most foods like other vitamins and it is estimated that nearly 75% of people are deficient.
Vitamin D is primarily sourced from the sun, known as the sunshine vitamin, when the skin absorbs sunlight, it synthesizes the UVB rays into vitamin D. Vitamin D receptors are found in nearly every cell, and as soon as it binds with receptors, it turns genes on or off, prompting changes at cellular level. Studies completed over the last two decades have proven that this process turns on immunoprotective genes, and tells cells which vitamins and minerals to absorb. This has a great effect on many body processes, including:
Strengthens bones, controls insulin, lowers blood pressure, possible cancer prevention, heart health, improves mood.
Vitamin D deficiency symptoms are severe pain in bones, sometimes leading to a stress fracture, osteoporosis, muscle aches, and overall weakness, fatigue, depression and difficulty walking.
Daily sun exposure can assist the body to make it's own vitamin D.
