'The sunshine vitamin' comes in more forms than you might have first imagined and it can be confusing when deciding which one is the best for you. D3 or cholecalciferol is arguably the best because it is not only fat soluble but also naturally made by your skin. Boost that supply today to strengthen your bones and brighten your mood.
Even if you've never heard of Vitamin D3, you're already a lot more familiar with it than you realise. Often referred to as the 'sunshine vitamin', D3 is a quite unique nutrient on account of where and how our body manufactures it.
While a very small percentage of our vitamin D intake comes from our diet, we get around 90% of it from time spent in the sun. It is, in fact, created in our bodies from our cholesterol when the sun's ultraviolet rays impact with our skin.
Ostensibly this is great news, it means that unless we stay indoors all year round, we'll likely get our fill from a bit of time in the sun's lovely glow. However, this presents a bit of a problem. First and foremost, aren't we all supposed to stay out of the sun for fear of UV damage?
Of course, with skin cancer rates on the rise, we all need to be as cautious as possible. That's why more and more healthcare professionals are now recommending we consider vitamin D supplementation.
Swanson High Potency Dry Vitamin D3 can be that supplement and that solution, if you let it. A simple but effective addition of one of these capsules into your diet each day delivers a staggering 1,000 iu. That's more than enough to keep you in top shape no matter the weather.
There's a bit of a double-entendre in the moniker 'sunshine vitamin' and that is, we obtain D3 from the sunshine and need it to keep us in good spirits. As anyone who has ever experienced the aptly named SAD (seasonal affective disorder) will tell you, grey skies can often contribute to a grey mood.
And it's not just all in your head either, Some studies have suggested that vitamin D-3 can actually help to treat the symptoms of SAD because of its connection with sunshine.
But D3 goes further than that because at the heart of its cause is the role it plays in the body's absorption of calcium. We all know that we need calcium to keep our bones and teeth strong and healthy but did you know that without D3, your body cannot properly use that essential mineral?
In fact, without it, you leave yourself exposed to conditions like osteoporosis, an illness that weakens and breaks the bones.
With Swanson High Potency Dry Vitamin D3 you can safeguard yourself against brittle and broken bones as well as certain forms of depression, all without ever having to expose yourself to harmful UV rays.
