Vitamin D, aka "the sunshine vitamin," plays an important role in helping the body absorb calcium and phosphorus, which are essential for strong bones and healthy teeth. But vitamin D does more than just strengthen bones - new and continuing research suggests that up to 2,000 different genes are targeted by this nutrient. Vitamin D promotes health and wellness throughout the body, including increasing calcium absorption for stronger bones, and helping support a healthy immune system. Without enough vitamin D, the body may be working far below its potential.
Many individuals, including people with dark skin and those who get limited exposure to the sun (especially in the winter) may not be getting enough vitamin D. And even for those who do get enough sun exposure, wearing sunscreen that helps to block the sun's harmful rays can reduce the body's ability to produce vitamin D by more than 90%. Other individuals who could benefit from more vitamin D include people with a reduced ability to absorb dietary fats, those who are overweight and older adults, as the body's ability to make vitamin D declines with age.
Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out of his family's garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple's two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
Since 1968, the Twinlab brand has been the trusted leader for innovative, high performance health and wellness products. In addition to the extensive line of vitamins, minerals and sports nutrition formulas of its namesake brand, Twinlab Corporation also manufactures and sells other category leaders, including the Metabolife line of diet and energy products; Alvita teas, established in 1922 as one of the country's first herbal tea lines, and Nature's Herbs, a complete line of herbals and phytonutrients.
