Healthy Bones & Immune System
Vitamin D has two well-known functions: It helps with proper calcium absorption which is essential for strong bones, and it is important for a healthy immune system. But it also influences over 200 genes in your body.
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with:
- Impaired immune system
- Respiratory infections including influenza
- Mood and cognitive disorders including depression
- Autoimmune disorders like diabetes and even cancer
- Increase fall and fracture risk
- Pre-menstrual syndrome
- Muscle weakness
Vitamin D Deficiency Is An Epidemic
Over 40% of people in the United States are deficient in vitamin D, and over 80% of African Americans.
Although vitamin D deficiency can affect anybody, it is even more common in people who are over 65, have darker skin, are overweight, or have lower exposure to the sun either because of where they live, or because they don’t go outside much.
Although yourbody makes vitamin D3 from exposure to sunlight on the skin, and from foods such as egg yolk or oily fish, many people’s diet or lifestyle means they are not making enough.
Why Do I Need 5000iu of Vitamin D?
If you are deficient in vitamin D, then the lower doses often prescribed (e.g. 400iu) will do very little for you.
4000-5000iu is the ‘sweet spot’ that gets most people up to a healthy level within 3 months, regardless what your current levels are, but without being too much.
Studies have shown that even 10,000iu per day is safe and non-toxic for most people. So 5000iu also works well as a maintenance dose, especially if you don’t get plenty of sun exposure.
Why You NEED Vitamin K2 Too
It’s very important to make sure the calcium your body absorbs goes to the right place. Namely your bones, and not the arteries and soft tissues.
So taking vitamin D without K2 can actually cause more harm than good.
Taking vitamin D3 with K2 together has been shown to significantly increase bone density in postmenopausal women, who are the people at higher risk of osteoporosis. As well as shuttling calcium to the right place, K2 also helps promote protein synthesis within bone.
Women Need Vitamin D3
Pre-menstrual syndrome in younger women is associated with vitamin D deficiency. And over half of American women receiving therapy to treat or prevent osteoporosis are vitamin D deficient. Women 65 and over with darker skin are especially likely to be deficient.
Especially Important For Older People
Men and women 65 and over need enough vitamin D as it helps prevent osteoporosis, falls and fractures. Many people in this age group are deficient in vitamin D, and increasing their vitamin D intake can have a significant effect on their overall physical and mental well-being.
Vitamin D3 not D2
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the form made by the body when skin interacts with sunlight. Studies have shown D3 is better than D2 at raising blood levels, and lasts longer. Some supplements contain D2 as it is easier to manufacture.
Get Your Levels Checked
Scientists now state that healthy vitamin D serum levels are between 40-60 ng/mL (100-150 Nmol/L), which is higher than previously thought. This means many people are told their levels are ok, when in fact they are deficient. A simple blood test can tell you what your current levels are.
Vitamin D3 5000iu with K2 + Calcium
Many vitamin D supplements do not contain enough D3 to effectively increase blood levels in people who are deficient, which is a vast number of the population. Or they contain the inferior D2 type. And others do not also contain vitamin K2, which is essential for ensuring that calcium goes into your bones, and not the arteries.
Our Happy Bones Formula combines vitamin both D3 in a high enough strength to correct deficiency whilst still being safe. Alongside vitamin K2 and added calcium, to give your body a head start with calcium absorption.
