Supplement of the Month
December - Vitamin D
What do you think of when you hear Vitamin D? Sunshine? The outdoors?
It's true that we are able to naturally produce Vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight. Therefore, it's natural to never think twice about being Vitamin D deficient, however many of us are!
While Vitamin D is known to assist calcium absorption, it's Vitamin K which guides the calcium to your bones!
We receive our Vitamin K through foods such as green leafy vegetables. Although most people consume enough Vitamin K, most do not intake enough to meet the optimum cardiovascular and bone health levels. And medications such as antibiotics, cholesterol reducers, and laxatives actually take away from the K-absorption that our body needs.
This vitamin combo is a group of naturally occurring and structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins. Which is fancy way of saying that if you take them with food in the morning, they work together to promote healthy blood circulation, bone health and calcium storage, blood sugar balance, and even immune function!
Do you catch a case of the blues every winter? As high as 20% of Americans are affected by Seasonal Affective Disorder each winter, suffering from the blues, fatigue, and in some cases, more serious depression as sunlight grows scarce. Studies have shown a link between low Vitamin D levels and mood disorders. So what if the treatment for your Winter Woes is supplement you take once in the morning?
EVEN BETTER, what if it is a supplement you take once a week??
We offer a Vitamin D blister pack that contains a high dose of Vitamin D that requires only one weekly supplement. A pack contains 15 capsules, so that's fifteen weeks of direct calcium absorption, mood booster, and immunity building!
