NutritionWorks Sunshine in a Chewable Vitamin D 400 IU - 60 Chewables by Windmill Health Products
Just one Nutrition Works' Sunshine Vitamin D Chewable provides you with 400 IU of vitamin D-3. Vitamin D is considered the sunshine vitamin because it is formed as the sun's ultraviolet rays touch your skin. Eating foods such as butter, cream, egg yolks and liver also provides your body with vitamin D, but not enough without additional support. Sunshine in a Chewable from NutritionWorks...the sunshine vitamin for a healthier you! Sunshine Chewable Vitamin D 400 IU is ideal for adults and kids who have difficulties swallowing caplets and tablets.
Vitamin D-3 is important to help:
- Support your natural defenses
- Manage a positive mood
- Balance out seasonal sadness
- Support a healthy nervous system
- Support the health of breast, colon and bones
Some supplements out on the market provide vitamin D-2. Vitamin D-2 is formed in plants as the sunlight touches their leaves. Sunshine in a Tablet provides you with vitamin D-3, the substance that is formed as the sunlight touches human skin.
Even though the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) of vitamin D is 400 IU, recent research suggests that people should be getting more. Sunshine in a Tablet may be the answer to help supplement your body with the extra Vitamin D it may need.
Sunshine is important in our lives because it converts to vitamin D in our bodies. Because modern work days keep us indoors most of the time, we may not be getting enough of this precious vitamin. Schedules usually start at sunrise and end at sunset preventing us from seeing much of the sun in-between. And even though vitamin D occurs naturally in some foods, it provides such a small amount that it may not be enough to sustain our overall health.
Recent studies have made the scientific community take another look at vitamin D. In addition to helping support bone health, new studies suggest that vitamin D may help with immune function as well. Data reviewing the effects of vitamin D on human health from Harvard University is so impressive that the American Cancer Society is currently reviewing its sun protection guidelines.
In addition to sunshine and the proper diet, supplementation may help to provide us with the Vitamin D our bodies may need.
The fat-soluble vitamin D’s most important role is maintaining blood levels of calcium, which it accomplishes by increasing absorption of calcium from food and reducing urinary calcium loss. Both effects keep calcium in the body and therefore spare the calcium that is stored in bones. When necessary, vitamin D transfers calcium from the bone into the bloodstream, which does not benefit bones. Although the overall effect of vitamin D on the bones is complicated, some vitamin D is necessary for healthy bones and teeth.
