Most people know that vitamin D deficiencies are very common, and many people supplement with vitamin D daily, but how do you know how much to take? The ability to absorb vitamins can vary widely from person to person, so it can be difficult to know how much to supplement with each day. In this week’s show we’ll discuss how much vitamin D is right for you, what can help make it more absorbable, and we’ll go over a few of the many benefits of having adequate vitamin D levels.
Products Mentioned in Today’s Show
Vitamin D3 5000 – Vitamin D receptors are widely distributed in the body, including colon, prostate, breast and ovary, where it acts to inhibit the excessive growth of body cells and tissues and helps cells mature normally.† Adequate amounts of vitamin D, an essential, fat-soluble vitamin, come from consistent exposure to sunshine and are difficult to obtain from dietary sources. Postmenopausal women, older individuals, and those with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. Vitamin D3, the naturally occurring form, is supplied in high-potency amounts for those needing to conveniently augment dietary intake.
D3 + K2 Ultra– Vitamins D3 and K2 are structurally similar, fat soluble vitamins. Synergistically, they support healthy calcium metabolism and bone mineralization throughout the body. Often referred to as “the sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D supports normal calcium and phosphorus absorption, which are essential for healthy bone formation. Vitamin K2 supports normal function of the protein osteocalcin, which helps bind newly absorbed calcium to the bone matrix to support healthy bone mineral density (BMD).
Multi-Element Buffered C – Vitamin C is important for immune function and antioxidant protection, as well as collagen and connective tissue production.† Multi-Element Buffered C adds calcium, magnesium, and potassium to ascorbic acid to create a buffered product that is gentle on the stomach. This formulation includes zinc, manganese, and copper in well-utilized forms. Quercetin, a powerful bioflavonoid, and reduced L-glutathione, an antioxidant, are included to potentiate the function of vitamin C.†
