Why Do I Need Vitamin D?
As vitamin D deficiency has become more prevalent, the attention and focus paid to vitamin D have increased, and for good reason. Most people familiar with vitamin D understand that this nutrient is essential to skeletal system health.
Along with calcium, vitamin D is considered vital for maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin D actually regulates the use of calcium in the body by dramatically increasing its absorption and utilization. Much of the interest in vitamin D stems from the fact that it’s found throughout the body in over 600 receptor sites including the brain and the heart. Due to the fact that vitamin D receptors are so prevalent in the body, research has increased on vitamin D, and seemingly everyday new studies tout the health benefits of vitamin D consumption.
Recent studies have also shown that vitamin D supports immune health by helping to regulate the immune system. The brain is home to dozens of vitamin D receptor sites, and vitamin D has been shown to enhance memory and concentration.
Vitamin D supports healthy digestion, again since receptor sites are found from the mouth all the way through the intestines.
Healthy vitamin D levels support two increasing areas of concern: breast health for women and prostate health for men.
Why Choose Garden of Life Vitamin Code Raw D3 5,000 IU?
Typically found in two forms, D2 and D3, both have been shown to be effective in clinical studies to raising vitamin D levels in the blood. However, vitamin D3 is preferred since it’s metabolized much better in the body and is in the form that comes from the most natural sources possible: the sun and our food.
