You’ve probably heard the concern about vitamin D deficiency in the United States.
But, how many Americans would you guess actually are seriously deficient in this essential vitamin?
The overall rate for all American adults hovers around 41.6%, according to a study published at the National Institute of Mental Health. Certain sub-populations such as African-Americans (82.1%) and Hispanics (69.2%) have stunningly high rates of vitamin D deficiency.
You’ve heard the media sensationalize past possible pandemics like Avian Bird Flu, Mad Cow Disease, and Swine Flu, which never actually came to fruition. But this is a real, and serious, pandemic going on right before your eyes!
Vitamin D deficiency is not life-threatening. But it can make your life awfully miserable if you don’t get enough. Here’s just some of the potential problems:
And those are just some of the symptoms. The link between vitamin D deficiency and these various symptoms isn’t always clear. But it is obvious that you can become quite miserable in these ways if you don’t get enough vitamin D daily.
If you simply can’t find a way to get enough sun naturally (20-30 minutes 3 times per week without sunscreen), supplementation is the next best thing.
That’s why we encourage you to take Vitamin D3 (50,000 International Units) by Ortho Molecular Products (available at our office).
This supplement increases your calcium absorption, which in turn improves how efficiently your body absorbs vitamin D3. It also boosts your immune activity, supports cardiovascular health, and the one you’d most likely come to our offices for – it strengthens your bones and increases the comfort of your muscles.
That means you’re a lot less likely to experience a painful break or fracture in your feet or ankles, and saves you some trips to see us.
