Our bodies can naturally produce vitamin D through exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays. However, too little sunlight can result in your body not making enough vitamin D to meet its daily needs. Supplements can be an excellent way for people who have little sunlight exposure to get the vitamin D their bodies need.
Benefits of Vitamin D3:
- Our biologically active form of vitamin D is easily absorbed by the body.
- Supplied in easy-to-swallow capsules with olive oil, a nutritious fat source that can improve vitamin D bioavailability.
- Supports the body's ability to maintain good bones.
- Promotes proper immune system function in adults.
- Natural support for people who do not get adequate daily sun exposure.
Why it is an essential vitamin
Vitamin D is found in cells throughout the body. It is needed for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus to build and maintain strong bones and teeth, the immune system, and healthy muscle function.
Don't you get vitamin D from the sun?
Vitamin D3 is produced when bare skin is exposed to ultraviolet B light (UVB), also called the "vitamin of the sun." However, studies show that most people do not get the recommended amount from sunlight alone. Factors that can interfere with vitamin D3 production include the time of day when the sun shines, season, latitude, skin colour, age, clothing and sunscreen use. According to the Mayo Clinic, 25% to 50% or more of the population may be vitamin D deficient. NatureWise Vitamin D3 delivers the same biologically active form of vitamin D produced in the body as a result of direct sunlight - without the risk of unprotected UVB exposure.
Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency
Bone pain and brittleness, muscle weakness and fatigue can all indicate vitamin D deficiency. People at higher risk for deficiency are those who spend a lot of time indoors, have darker skin pigmentation, are older, or are overweight.
