Vitamin D: News for Your Health

Block the sun’s rays – not your Vitamin D

We all know the sun’s ultraviolet rays are harmful — so, please protect yourself by wearing sunscreen when in the sun. It helps prevent sunburn and skin cancer. 

However, did you know that sunscreen blocks the sun AND your skin’s ability to absorb Vitamin D? 

When you lather-up the sunscreen, supplement with Vitamin D. It is an effective way to make sure you’re getting your daily allowance of this essential vitamin. 

Vitamin D helps absorb calcium, regulate your immune system, and support a healthy heart, healthy bones and healthy aging. 

…But, there is more…

People Without Enough Vitamin D May Be 77% Weaker

A lack of Vitamin D may be zapping your strength.

Men’s Health said that a study from the University of Tulsa found that about 33 percent of college athletes studied had inadequate levels of Vitamin D. And in feats of strength, those athletes tested lower against fellow athletes with adequate Vitamin D levels.

One theory, said study author Rachel Hildebrand, Ph.D., is that Vitamin D may help muscle cells release calcium more efficiently during the muscle’s contraction process.

Supplementing is an easy and effective way to make sure you’re getting your daily allowance of Vitamin D.
