It is a well known fact that Vitamin D plays an essential role in our immunity and overall health, and along with calcium, strengthens and protects our bones, joints, and teeth in a powerful way. Vitamin D is one of the unique nutrients that the human body actually synthesizes on its own within our very own skin tissue; the key is proper sun exposure. Due to a rise in sunscreen usage, environmental pollution, and or/limited access to direct sunlight year round, Vitamin D deficiency is on the rise - despite an overall increase in supplementation. Our Veggimins Vitamin D combines organic mushroom-synthesized Vitamin D with Jerusalem artichoke powder for healthy joints and bones, cellular reproduction, strong memory and concentration, breast and prostate health, and warrior-like immunity, naturally.
The Veggimins Difference
While most Vitamin D on the shelf is derived from lambs wool or by synthetic means, and is very hard for the body to fully metabolize, our vitamin D is sourced from nature, directly from organic mushrooms. When exposed to UV radiation, a naturally occurring compound called ergosterol within the mushroom acts as a vitamin precursor, and is converted directly into Vitamin D2. This action offers an uncanny similarity to what happens naturally within our own skin when exposed to sunlight. A daily dose of our "sunshine in a jar" ensures that your body receives the Vitamin D levels necessary for optimal health.
Top 5 Health Benefits of Vitamin D
1. Strong Bones and Muscles
Proper Vitamin D intake helps ensure proper calcium and phosphurus deposition within our bone tissue - making sure they retain densisty and strength as we age.
2. Boosts Immunity and Prevents Disease
Vitamin D boosts the immune system, meaning when the next cold or flu bug circulates, you're a lot less likely to fall victim. Vitamin D has also been shown to play a role in the prevention of heart disease, high blood pressure, as well as insulin resistant type 2 diabetes.
3. Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Aging
A deficiency in Vitamin D is linked to virtually every age-related health condition including cancer, osteoporosis, vascular disease, heart disease, and chronic inflammation. Vitamin D has been shown to lower the activity of pro-inflammatory cells known as cytokines within the body, having an overall anti-aging effect.
4. Mood Boosting
When we get sunlight on our skin, our mood is instantly uplifted. Have you ever wondered why? The increased production of Vitamin D plays a huge role. Science shows that certain areas of the brain associated with depression have active Vitamin D receptors. Vitamin D also plays a role in the regulation and release of certain neurotransmitters.
5. Regulates Hormones
While we think of Vitamin D as an actual vitamin such as C, or E, it is actually a hormone produced by our own body. It nourishes the pituitary gland and also helps to keep estrogen levels balanced. It has also been shown to help protect against breast and prostate cancers.
