Vitamin D3 (1000IU) Overview
Vitamin D3 is much like fish oil in its ability to affect the body in so many positive ways. Although your body produces sufficient Vitamin D when your skin is exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun, people working inside or avoiding the sun due to skin sensitivities are missing out on this natural form of Vitamin D. Even those who get ample sun exposure can still benefit from a premium Vitamin D supplement like the one offered by Body First. *
Vitamin D3 and Healthy Weight Management
Supplemental Vitamin D works to increase your metabolism and even promotes longevity by enhancing the immune system. Vitamin D also has been shown to improve physical performance by providing more energy, which works hand in hand with managing your weight. Ample Vitamin D intake can mean more energy, increased strength and a better physique!*
Vitamin D3 and Disease & Cold Prevention
Vitamin D3 has been observed to reduce the chance of developing multiple sclerosis. It has also been shown to help keep the brain functioning optimally later in life, which could help prevent Alzheimer’s disease as well as many other brain degenerating diseases. Vitamin D3 also helps with the absorption and metabolism of phosphorous, calcium and other minerals within the body. Therefore, Vitamin D3 is crucial in the maintenance of strong bones and a healthy immune system. When taken at the onset of a common cold, Vitamin D3 has also been shown to shorten the length of the cold as well as ease the symptoms. In this manner, Vitamin D3 is essential to have on hand to take at the first sign of a cold (even though you should be taking it everyday regardless!). *
Vitamin D for General Health
Vitamin D3 supplementation has been linked with high natural testosterone levels in men and women. Higher testosterone translates into increased libido, more energy, and a stronger immune system. Increasing testosterone is one of the many ways in which Vitamin D3 works to improve your overall health. A lot of doctors say, “If you’re going to take only one supplement, choose Vitamin D or fish oil,” and we say, you should be taking both!*
