Are you getting enough vitamin D? SunVit-D3 answers some commonly asked questions
Q: What is vitamin D and what does it do?
A: Vitamin D3 is produced naturally in the skin when it’s exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through certain foods. Although classified as a vitamin, D3 cleverly transforms into a hormone in the body and circulates in the bloodstream to help the absorption of calcium and phosphorous.
Q: Is Vitamin D with added Calcium ideal?
A: When you add Calcium to Vitamin D the benefits increase because calcium is essential for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Calcium also aids in normal blood clotting in our bodies, as well as helping our nerve function and enzyme activity.
Q: Do I still need to take Vitamin D in the summer?
A: From about late April/early May to late September, most people should be able to get Vitamin D from sunlight. Here at SunVit-D3 we suggest it’s beneficial to maintain a good Vitamin D3 and Calcium level to prepare you for the winter months when our body is most susceptible to common colds and bugs.
