Vitamin D is Crucial for Optimal Immune Function
Vitamin D works in conjunction with our body to modulate immune activity. Most immune cells have receptors for Vitamin D. That means Vitamin D’s role in modulating immune response is huge, regulating how we react to pathogens and antigens, even chronic disease and autoimmunity.
Vitamin D Benefits
Vitamin D is needed throughout our body. Every single type of tissue in our body has receptors for Vitamin D. Our immune system, bones, heart, muscles, brain, all require optimal levels of Vitamin D to function properly and optimally. Vitamin D also functions as a hormone. It is the only vitamin that does. This makes it even more important to make sure we are not only not deficient but also not insufficient. Even insufficient levels can be detrimental to how our bodies function.
Our D3 Is Sourced From Algae, not Lichen
Why you ask? Our testing shows algae based D3 to be better absorbed in our bodies than lichen. We need 1.3 - 1.5 times more lichen based D3 to bring up and maintain our levels of D3 in our bodies as we do when we use the algae based source of D3. And just as important, the algae source is truly sustainable and grown in a controlled environment.
Vitamin D Deficiency Is More Common Than Everyone Thinks.
Study after study shows over 40% of the population being deficient while over 60% have insufficient levels. Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies in most countries. And if you have a darker complexion, the percentages of the population that are deficient increase to 69% for Hispanics and over 80% for Black Americans. Those with darker skin absorb less UV light from the sun. This makes it more difficult for our bodies to synthesize Vitamin D. Supplementation is even more important for those with darker skin.
The Importance of Including Vitamin K with Vitamin D
Without K2 calcium may be absorbed where areas of our body where we don't need it like our joints, arteries, and organs. K2 helps direct calcium to our bones and teeth where it is needed. K2 is essential for calcium absorption.
