Session 9: Vitamin D Levels:
When talking about vitamin D, we need to understand that there are five different forms it comes in, and one of the most important forms for us is vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is produced naturally by the body from sunlight, and many people believe because of this they can receive enough just by spending time outside. The truth is that there are a number of factors beyond your control that can prevent you producing the appropriate amount of this, such as where you live, the winter season, weather conditions such as cloud cover or smog, and sunscreens.
Making sure you maintain optimum levels of vitamin D3 plays an important role in helping your aging body. Studies have shown evidence that Vitamin D3 supports your bone health, immune system, and has the potential to help prevent the flu, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease!
We offer multiple ways of supplementation of vitamin D3, so you can choose the one that best fits your preferences. One of the unique ways you can supplement is with our Zetpil Vitamin D3 Cholecalciferol Transdermal Cream. If you prefer the always popular capsules, our friends at Life Extension also offer these with their Life Extension Vitamin D3 with Sea Iodine. No matter what you like, we have you covered!
As always, if you have specific concerns or conditions, we at DR Vitamin Solutions would be happy to make more specific supplement recommendations to complement your basic foundation. You can leave us a comment here, or use the contact information listed on our website.
Up next in our series is Vitamin K, and we’ll get into the details of this essential vitamin in the next couple of weeks, so be sure to keep checking back for it!
