Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that is needed for calcium metabolism, maintaining immunity and brain function. Recent studies have shown that Vitamin D deficiency may be linked to obesity.
Vitamin D is not really a vitamin, but more of a hormone like molecule, which encourages the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous.
A human requires ten to fifteen minutes of sun exposure at least twice a week on the face, arms, hands, or back without sunscreen with a greater than 3 UV index for adequate amounts of vitamin D3. If you have longer exposure, the body degrades the Vitamin D just about as quickly as it is produced. Most North Americans are severely deficient in Vitamin D, especially throughout the winter months. Darker skinned individuals are at a much higher risk for Vitamin D deficiency, especially when they live in non-tropical regions.
VitaTree Vitamin D3 is the best absorbed form of Vitamin D that is made from the wool of sheep. When sunlight hits the sheep’s wool, Vitamin D3 is produced. Other Vitamin D3 supplements on the market are made from fish livers, which can be extremely toxic. VitaTree Vitamin D3 is in 1000 IU capsules that are easy to swallow, with no artificial sweeteners, gluten, dairy, yeast, colours or preservatives.
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the following conditions:
· Low immunity
· Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
· Arthritis (Rheumatoid)
· Heart disease
· Chonic Fatigue
· High blood pressure
