More Than 50 Percent of Americans are Deficient is Vitamin D
Vitamin D is essential to strong bones and teeth. For many years a chief source of vitamin D has been milk fortified with this vitamin. Recent reports, however, indicate that fewer Americans, including children, are drinking milk.
Scientists have recently discovered that vitamin D3 deficiency is linked to many health problems. Because of the increased use of sunscreen and indoor living, the number of Americans with a vitamin D3 deficiency has drastically increased. Recent studies have found that vitamin D3 deficiency is linked to health conditions such as depression, back pain, cancer, both insulin resistance and pre-eclampsia during pregnancy, impaired immunity and macular degeneration.
Vitamin D Deficiency Syndrome, or VDDS, is what researchers have termed as the lack of vitamin D. VDDS has the potential to result in some very serious health problems.
What's the Difference Between Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3?
Most vitamin D supplements use ergocalciferol or vitamin D2, but Vitabase Vitamin D uses cholecalciferol, D3, a more bio-active form. This is the same form of vitamin D that comes from your skin’s exposure to sunlight.
