Are Your Bones Absorbing Enough Vitamin D3? Check How USANA Can Help.

Whether fishing in the summer or sledding in the winter, that's where your body absorbs the all important Vitamin D3.

Vitamin D3 is vitally important for the support of healthy bones, your immune system, muscle strength, glucose control and a healthy heart.  Deficiencies in Vitamin D can increase the risk of calcium deficiency, which in turn, can lead to accelerated bone loss, osteoporosis and heart disease.

You need 15 to 30 minutes of direct sunlight on your skin, without sunscreen, to fully absorb Vitamin D3, the most effective form of this nutrient.  Food sources like milk, orange juice and fish contain Vitamin D2, which is not as bioavailable, and therefore not as efficient.

Recent reports show that populations around the world, and especially in northern climates like Canada, are suffering from Vitamin D deficiency.  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. 

When you have your Vitamin D tested with your doctor, be sure to measure the amount of 25-hydroxy vitamin D in plasma, with the best showing to be 40 - 60 ng/mL.

Vitamin D is also in the USANA BiOmega fish oil capsules, the Calcium Plus tablets, and the MegaAO antioxidants and vitamins.

The USANA vitamins and supplements vary in price according to the country, so be sure to change the market online here for your territory.
