Our body produces Vitamin D in response to ultraviolet light, but researchers find that people are chronically Vitamin D deficient because they do not get full body exposure to the sun regularly. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to muscle weakness, osteopenia, osteoporosis, bone fractures, insulin resistance, cognitive impairment, lowered immune defense and much more. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, meaning the body cannot absorb it without fat. This is the reason we have blended Vitamin D3, gently extracted from a natural source, with virgin olive oil, to ensure maximum absorption.
With seasonal changes occurring naturally throughout the year, our exposure to the sun varies. Therefore, our daily dose recommendation changes depending on your personal sun exposure. We recommend 1 capsule per day when you experience 20 minutes or more of full body exposure to the sun, and 2 capsules per day in seasons with low sun exposure.
