Most of us live and work indoors and sometimes we may not see the sun for days. With the skin cancer scare and the avid use of sun block, we are not getting enough Vitamin D3 from the sun. We were meant to get a minimum of 20 minutes of sunlight in the nude daily….!!! Also the darker your skin is, the farther away from the equator you are, and the further away you are from the summer months, the less likely it is that you will produce adequate Vitamin D levels from sun exposure alone.
Vitamin D3 “pushes” calcium into your bones, thereby helping to prevent osteoporosis. Vitamin D3 deficiency has been associated with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Diabetes, Colon Cancer, Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Auto-Immune Disease, Neuro-degenerative Diseases including Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Autism, Osteoporosis, Depression, Breast Cancer, and now Swine Flu
For those who don’t get enough sunshine or whose diet is deficient in Vitamin D3 supplementation is recommended. Note: D3. D3 is the active form of vitamin D. D2 is the synthetic form and not as effective.
Superhealth sprays produce a great Vitamin D3 spray that is not only easy is get your daily doses but delivers vitamin D3 in a form that when compared to pills has more than a 75% greater absorbency rate.
