Why does your body need Vitamin D?

Immune Support*

Accessing Energy*

Strength and Muscle Growth*

Emotional Well-Being*

The National Institute of Health says that in addition vitamin D supports "modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular function, and reduction of inflammation." Source: (1,2,3)


Did you know that 50% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient?**

From November to February those who live above the 35th parallel in the United States don't receive any vitamin D from the sun causing a deficiency. (9) Our diet also contributes to vitamin D deficiency, providing only a fraction of our daily requirements.

This is because from November to February those who live above the 35th parallel don't receive enough vitamin d from the sun. Our diet also contributes to vitamin d deficiency, providing only a fraction of our daily requirements.

Immune Support

Low levels of Vitamin D have been linked to frequent infections and the worsening of autoimmune diseases. Studies have shown that taking a vitamin D supplement is a safe way to protect against respiratory infections. (7,8)*

Accessing Energy

Optivida Health's Vitamin D contains many digestive enzymes help with the digestion of food. These enzymes help break down the food you eat to release the energy. Without all of the proper enzymes your digestion is incomplete.*

Strength and Muscle Growth

Studies show a link between Vitamin D deficiency and muscle weakness. It is also linked to muscle growth and recovery. Vitamin D receptors are found in almost all tissues of the body. Vitamin D works in some of those tissues as a regulator of muscle growth. Vitamin D supplements may improve muscle strength by increasing the size and amount of type II (fast twitch) muscle fibers. Studies show that vitamin D may serve a vital role in muscle growth, athletic performance and injury prevention.* (4,5)

Emotional Well-Being

Studies have shown a link between Vitamin D deficiency and depression, anxiety, and overall cognitive function. Vitamin D has been particularly effective in the treatment seasonal affective disorder (seasonal depression). (6)*

Optivida Health's Vitamin D Supplement

Potent

Bioavailable

Plant-Based

What does it mean to be bioavailable?

To increase the amount that of vitamin D that is absorbed into the body we combined the vitamin D from the pure white button mushrooms with magnesium. Magnesium is known to boost the absorption of vitamin D into the body. Magnesium acts as a hostess that guides the vitamin D into the bloodstream where it can effectively go to work.

The Best

I have been searching for a VM D not made with the oils from sheep skin. I knew I needed some. But I get acne at age 70 from oils like this or even Omega 3’s and coQ10 all way too oily for me to process. Very grateful for Optivida products.
