Vitamin D Supplements

Vitamin D is vital for your mental and physical health as it supports a healthy heart, teeth, and bones, keeps your immune system strong, and improves your energy levels and mood. Our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight. However, our modern lifestyles mean that many of us struggle to get enough, particularly during the winter months. It is therefore important to supplement your natural production with vitamin D supplements.

Vitamin D is vital for your mental and physical health as it supports a healthy heart, teeth, and bones, keeps your immune system strong, and improves your energy levels and mood. Our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when we are exposed to sunlight. However, our modern lifestyles mean that many of us struggle to get enough, particularly during the winter months. It is therefore important to supplement your natural production with vitamin D supplements. 

Health Benefits of Vitamin D Supplements

One of vitamin D's most important uses, especially during our developmental years, is helping the body absorb calcium and phosphorus from the food we eat. This metabolism and distribution of calcium aids healthy bones and helps to rebuild teeth from the inside. Because vitamin D is crucial for children, we offer a vitamin D supplement for kids which comes in gummy form, making it easy to get your young ones all the nutrients they need to sustain growth and healthy bones. Similarly, for postmenopausal women, people with osteoporosis, or other weak bone disorders like rickets, a vitamin D supplement can greatly improve your quality of living. Our liquid supplements are especially useful for rapid absorption into the bloodstream, as are our vitamin D supplements that include K2 which activates a protein that helps calcium bind to our bones to do its job.

Vitamin D is also important for keeping our energy levels up as it assists in the process of turning glucose and oxygen into energy which then powers various parts of the body, including the muscles. It does this by maintaining the activity of the mitochondrial respiratory chain which has a significant impact on energy. The mitochondria are the power generators of your cells as they manufacture ATP from glucose and sugar. ATP is a molecule that acts as the main energy source for metabolic function. Therefore poor mitochondrial efficiency leads to poor ATP production and consequently reduced energy levels. Therefore fatigue-related disorders, like chronic fatigue or seasonal affective disorder, are often common symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency. Taking a vitamin D supplement during the winter, or if you have an indoor lifestyle, can greatly assist in maintaining desirable energy levels throughout the year.  Energy supplements with vitamin D can help get your ATP production back up as well as help regulate your mood and ward off depression.

Best Vitamin D Supplements | the Sunshine Vitamin

More Reasons to Take a Vitamin D Supplement

Due to our changing diets and ever-increasing internal lifestyles, everyone should look to ensure they maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout the year by including a vitamin D supplement in their health regime. Known as the "sunshine vitamin" (because it is produced by the skin when exposed to sunlight) it's important to add a few hours in the sun to your day. Beware, however, of the temptation to sit in the sun all day as getting too much sun can be detrimental because of the inevitable ultraviolet radiation exposure which can reduce collagen production. This is harmful because collagen is essential to healthy skin, bones, and cells.

If done approached wisely though, Vitamin D can supplement healthy skin through the protection and rejuvenation it offers. Its active form calcitriol enhances the skin's immune system and helps to destroy free radicals that can cause premature aging. It does this by contributing to skin cell growth, repair, and metabolism. If you experience red, dry, or itchy skin, it might be due to a Vitamin D deficiency as the lack of calcitriol could result in the skin not being able to repair itself as efficiently.  And in the winter or if you have a very indoors lifestyle, make sure you boost your Vitamin D levels through a healthy diet and an effective supplement. Our Vitamin D3 supplements provide all the benefits of vitamin D without the risk of unprotected exposure to UVB rays.

As well as your skin, a vitamin D supplement can help your insides too. Vitamin D is key to a healthy gut as it is involved in maintaining immune homeostasis. It increases the gut microbiome's overall diversity, which means it can remain stable and balanced against a larger range of bad bacteria and viruses.

Despite all these benefits, vitamin D deficiency is still the most common type of vitamin deficiency in the world and it often goes without being diagnosed for a long time. Use our at-home Vitamin D test to see if you are one of the many people who lack enough Vitamin D and get practical advice on how to improve this with our at-home test.
