Essential for pulling calcium into the skeleton to build strong bones and teeth, vitamin D is also crucial in helping calcium fulfil its other roles in maintaining muscle mass and keeping your nervous system balanced.
Thanks to recent breakthrough discoveries, virtually all cells and tissues in your body are now known to need vitamin D. A lack of this vitamin is now considered an important factor in your susceptibility to a host of diseases.
Solgar Vitamin D3 2200 IU is great for...
Vitamin D plays vital roles from head to foot.
No longer just calcium's little helper for solid, pain-free bones, comfortable joints, healthy teeth and strong muscles.
Vitamin D has become important in its own right. It helps bolster the immune system to fight off colds, flu and other infections.
It reduces inflammation, inhibits autoimmune responses and prevents abnormal cell growth.
It supports a healthy heart, circulation and blood pressure.
It promotes brain function and positive mood. It also has a role in blood sugar balance, healthy eyesight and weight control.
In short, vitamin D helps keep our bodies strong and disease resistant.
But there's a problem. To meet our requirements we depend on ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun. And yet we've been told to keep out of the sun, cover up, or smother ourselves with sunscreen. Not that we get much UVB in the UK. It's only available in the strength we need for a limited number of hours from March to September. On cloudy days vitamin D production can drop by three-quarters.
That bad enough but it gets even worse. The darker your skin and the older you are, the more difficult it is for your body to make the vitamin.
So what can you do?
Very few foods contain the vitamin so the only realistic solution if you want to gain every advantage that vitamin D has to offer, is to take a supplement. Solgar D3 2200 IU capsules are in a fast acting well absorbed form that will provide you with all the vitamin D you need.
Take one capsule of Solgar D3 2200 iu daily
As Vitamin D is fat-soluble, you should get the most absorption in the body by taking the capsule with a meal (preferably a high fat meal)
Q: What kind of foods and drinks would be best to take this with?
A: Any meal that is has high fat content and calcium will help you get the most out of this. Cheese is great example, but also any foods that are made using oil or dairy.
Q: Can I take too much Vitamin D?
A: It’s highly unlikely as the amounts you would have to take are dramtically large!
Q: Does vitamin D help with weight loss?
A: Those who are overweight usually have a vitamin D deficiency due to body fat absorbing the vitamin in excess. It can also impact leptin (an appetite-suppressant) and insulin metabolism. Taking this supplement may help – but focus on your diet and exercise primarily.
Q: Why do the Solgar D3 2200 iu capsules seem to offer much more than the normal recommended daily doses of vitamin D3
A: The daily recommendations for Vitamin D were determined several decades ago as an appropriate dose for children to avoid rickets. Now, we know a lot more about Vitamin D3 and its benefits - nutritionalists now know that atleast 1000 IU is needed each day, but prefer to suggest that you need 2000 IU or more to gain the most benefit from Vitamin D3 goodness.
