Vitamin D3 is one of the most essential vitamins for our health. It is essential for the absorption of calcium in the body, which is used for constructing strong bones and in enabling the firing of our nerves that control muscle contraction and our heart beat.
We normally get vitamin D3 from sun exposure, specifically the ultraviolet B rays in the sunlight, and from some of the foods we eat. Because we spend so much of our time indoors, or covered in sunscreen if we do get outside, our exposure to UVB rays is greatly reduced, so we don’t manufacture enough vitamin D3. So we turn to supplementation.
Effects of vitamin D deficiency
Research has shown that vitamin D deficiency is a significant factor in many conditions.
- SAD – seasonal affective disorder
- Infections like the flu and tuberculosis
- Autoimmune conditions like multiple sclerosis, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis
- Lower digestive complaints like irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease
- Cardiovascular disease
- Many cancers
That by no means implies that by taking this Shaklee vitamin D supplement you can avoid or cure any of the above conditions. That would be a medical claim and, to be honest, there are so many factors in disease conditions that to say that dealing with only one factor will fix the whole problem is just wrong.
