Immune & Bone Health. Health Booster. Great Tasting. Rapid Absorption. Natural Fruit Flavoring. Vitamin D3 is found naturally in fish and egg yolks and in fortified milk products. By far the most available source is from our own bodies, which make Vitamin D from sunlight. Limited food sources and limited exposure to the sun affected by skin color, season, altitude and latitude, pollution, clouds, age and the routine use of sunscreens contribute to one-half to two-thirds of people having lower-than-optimal levels of Vitamin D, Doctors routinely counsel Vitamin D supplementation. The American Academy of Pediatrics in 2006 doubled the recommended daily amount of Vitamin D for infants, children and adolescents to 400 IU per day. Children particularly at risk are unsupplemented breast-fed babies as their mothers are often deficient themselves and African American adolescents and young adults as they modify their diets away from fortified milk products. Vitamin D deficiencies have been associated with higher incident rates of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis and type 1 diabetes, diminished bone mineralization including osteoporosis, depression, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease and the childhood disease rickets. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and supplementation must be taken with a meal containing dietary fat to enable the vitamin to be absorbed. Vitamin D overload is very rare as the established upper limits of intake is much higher than supplementation guidelines since, unlike water-soluble vitamins, excess Vitamin D is not excreted from the body. The many health benefits of Vitamin D bring to the forefront the vastly important roles it plays in maintaining health and vitality. 1st Step for Energy Liquid Vitamin D3: A great tasting supplement to take day after day.
