Alora Naturals - Liquid Vitamin D3Regular price $33.99 Save $-33.99
Called the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is formed naturally in the skin by exposure to sunlight. But when an individual does not get enough sun exposure, their body cannot make sufficient vitamin D. Vitamin D supplementation is especially important because it’s hard to get enough during our long, dark northern winters. Vitamin D is a vitamin and hormone that stimulates the body to absorb calcium, and it is needed to keep bones strong. People deficient in vitamin D levels tend to have softer, thin bones, predisposing them to fractures. Vitamin D is especially important for the elderly because of their difficulty synthesizing vitamin D from sunlight as some medications interfere with vitamin D absorption.
Vitamin D deficiency is quite prevalent especially for people living in places like Canada, where the sun is not strong enough from September to May to stimulate Vitamin D production in the skin. After September, a rapid drop in vitamin D levels leaves most people susceptible to increased incidence and severity of colds, flus, and infections and increased risk of degenerative diseases.
