Vitamin D is considered a nutrient of public health concern. This is because many Americans are not getting enough Vitamin D in their diets and low intakes can affect overall health. As many as 96% of Americans do not get enough Vitamin D from food alone. 1   This is partly because natural food sources of Vitamin D are limited and not always appealing and exposure to sunlight may vary pending on lifestyle and climate. Daily supplementation can contribute to overall Vitamin D intake.*

Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D has many benefits.  The benefits vary pending on dosage and particular Vitamin D supplement. Please refer to the product page for the specific benefits of each supplement.

  • Works with calcium to maintain healthy bones and teeth in adults*                             
  • Assists in maintaining a healthy immune system.*  Vitamin D is involved in all 3 layers of immune system support: Role in skin and barrier function; Function and movement of immune cells; Normal functioning of T-cells and B cells.*
  • Promotes neuromuscular function*
  • Supports Exercise Recovery.* Helps you recover strength levels quicker in the days after heavy training, so you can get back to intense training.*

Sources of Vitamin D

Natural food sources of Vitamin D include cod liver oil, liver and some types of fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon, and sardines. In the US, milk but not all dairy products, is fortified with Vitamin D. It is important to check the label on products like cheese and yogurt to see if they were made with fortified milk. Vitamin D is unique because of the human body’s ability to absorb and store it after being exposed to sunlight.

Recommended Amount of Vitamin D

The RDA for vitamin D is currently 15-20 mcg/day depending on age. However, this level was established based on the amount of vitamin D needed to maintain bone health.* Many health experts argue that higher intakes of vitamin D are necessary for overall optimal health.  A daily intake of 50 mcg (2,000 IU) is frequently recommended for most healthy adults.2

Are you getting enough Vitamin D?

A study showed that as many as 75% of all teenagers and adults in America could use more Vitamin D in their diets, which is in line with other studies showing Americans typically do not get enough of this critical nutrient.3 Researchers found that large amounts of Vitamin D stored in the skin from the previous summer were used by the body to meet its daily needs.4 The researchers concluded that daily intake of Vitamin D through food alone is most likely inadequate to meet the body’s needs unless people are exposed to large amounts of sunlight in the summer months.4
