WHY VITAMIN D?

Vitamin D is actually a hormone that regulates so many functions in our bodies.

Inadequate Levels of Vitamin D can lead to:

  • Decreased immune function
  • Increased Inflammation
  • Slower Wound Healing
  • Hair Loss
  • Low Energy
  • Depressed Mood
  • Increased Bone or Muscle Pain
  • Impaired bone health
    • Specifically Vitamin D guides calcium into our bones where it belongs, rather than calcium going to the kidneys or to the arteries to form calcifications when Vitamin D is inadequate.

Our bodies manufacture Vitamin D from sunlight. This requires 10-30 minutes of daily sun exposure with no sunscreen. It is best not to shower right after to allow the manufactured Vitamin D to absorb into the skin and into the body.

Most of us are not able to find the time for this exposure on a regular basis. This is why supplementing with Vitamin D3 is so important.

A good starting dose of Vitamin D3 is 2000-5000IU. Levels can be tested with a simple blood test. Typical normal range is 30-80 ng/ml, 30 is surviving and 80 is thriving.
