THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN D
Studies have shown that nearly 85% of US citizens are deficient in Vitamin D. Why is this so important? It's a well known fact that the body needs adequate amounts of Vitamin D in order to absorb calcium and phosphorus - two essential minerals that keep your bones strong.
What you may not know is that maintaining healthy levels of Vitamin D may also prevent you from getting the flu.

It's also probably safe to say that even if you haven't caught the flu this year, you probably know someone who has. Most people think to take Vitamin C when they want to prevent getting ill - which is great - but Vitamin D should not be overlooked!

THE PROBLEM WITH OVER THE COUNTER SUPPLEMENTS
To ensure you are getting a healthy amount of Vitamin D, you may increase your intake of foods that are rich in this essential vitamin such as fish, eggs and mushrooms. However, for most people, it's important to also take a supplement of Vitamin D.
There are plenty of issues with most over the counter supplements that you find at your grocery store or supermarket. These supplements often contain harmful fillers, binders and added ingredients such as soy, gluten, artificial coloring, hydrogenated oils, talc, and even lead. Not to mention, the absorption rate in some of these store bought vitamins is often so low that there is no point to even taking them at all.

Purchase supplements from a RELIABLE source. All of our supplements, including Vitamin D come from a facility that is FDA regulated. They have NO harmful fillers or ingredients and have a high absorption rate.
