Read the news lately? If you have, odds are you've run across a story about the importance of vitamin D and all of its wonderful health benefits. Recent reports show that populations around the world are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. This is especially true for the Canadian population, which lives at a high latitude and has few foods that are naturally rich in vitamin D. The problem is widespread and increasing, with potentially severe repercussions for overall health and bone-fracture rates. There is also evidence that suggests vitamin D deficiency increases during the winter months because of decreased exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D (frequently called the sunshine vitamin) is necessary for normal bone mineralization and growth and the maintenance of bones and teeth.

Vitamin D Supplementation, All Year Long

Medicinal Ingredients Quantity
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)25 µg

Studies have shown that because our bodies use sunlight to make vitamin D, people in North America can become vitamin D deficient during the winter months. But even when the sun is shining, how often do you actually see it? If you're like most people, not often—especially if you work in an office or never leave the house without covering yourself in sunscreen. USANA's Vitamin D supplement is formulated with a high level of vitamin D to ensure you get the nutrients you need throughout the entire year.

How Vitamin D Helps

Calcium is the major structural element of bones and teeth. Your body needs several nutrients in order for calcium to be absorbed and used properly; including vitamin D. Vitamin D increases absorption of calcium from the small intestine so the body receives maximum benefit. Deficiencies in vitamin D can increase the risk of calcium deficiency, which, in turn, can lead to accelerated bone loss and osteoporosis.

Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3)

USANA's Vitamin D supplement is made with cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), which research suggests is better than competing forms at raising levels of vitamin D in the blood. Cholecalciferol can be acquired through diet and exposure to sunlight. Lightinduced synthesis occurs in the skin when ultraviolet light reacts with a form of cholesterol, converting it to cholecalciferol. This molecule is then altered by the liver and kidneys to form the physiologically active vitamin D. Several forms have vitamin D or potential vitamin D activity. The most important forms are vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. The latter is the form normally found in humans and is also the form used in USANA's Vitamin D supplement.

Why Vitamin D?

Even when the winter months are behind us, it doesn't mean your body needs less of a good thing. Every cell in your body needs vitamin D to function properly. USANA's Vitamin D supplement is a safe and easy way to get 1,000 IU of maximum-strength vitamin D.
