Low Vitamin D and Vitamin D Deficiency: The Benefits You’re Missing Out On

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D is tremendously important to everyone especially active individuals. Yet between 30 and 80 percent of the US population is Vitamin D deficient. Only two real sources exist to get to sufficient levels, pure sunlight and through supplementation. The recommended daily intake of Vitamin D is 5,000 IUs but studies have shown that large doses of between 35,000 to 50,000 IUs twice a week were most effective. Vitamin D is involved in countless processes and can help you live longer, be healthier, get stronger, and improve brain function. Some of the benefits of getting sufficient Vitamin D are:

  • o   Better Bone Health
  • o   Greater Muscle Strength and Power
  • o   Increased Lean Body Mass
  • o   Better Insulin Sensitivity and Blood Sugar Regulation
  • o   Prevention of Some Forms of Cancer
  • o   Prevention of Multiple Sclerosis
  • o   Better Healing of Skin Disorders
  • o   Decreasing Severity of Asthma
  • o   Better Kidney, Brain, and Cardiovascular health

These are just a few of the many benefits of getting sufficient Vitamin D so make it a priority to get more of this major vitamin in your life.

  1. which prduct you are offering us is it medicines or supplements to improve vitamin D.

    • I’m not offering any products just putting out some information. Vitamin D is available both by prescription and over the counter in supplement form. The prescription form is Vitamin D-2 which tends to be broken down quicker in the body than the supplement form D-3 which stays in the blood longer and raises Vitamin D levels more effectively
