The majority of the population are not deficient in vitamin D but merely obtain through different means less than optimal levels and therefore due to the many benefits in which vitamin D has on your health supplementation is encouraged to not only reach but maintain optimal levels.
Supplementing Vitamin D is associated with a wide array of benefits from increasing cognition to immune health, bone health to your overall well-being and therefore should be taken on a daily basis with meals or a source of fat such as fish oil for example. Studies have also come to show that supplementation can also reduce the risks of a number of serious conditions such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Clinical studies have come to light in which they have found a direct link between optimal levels of vitamin D and maintaining healthy estrogen levels in women and an increase in testosterone levels in men.
Vitamin D3 supplementation (Cholecalciferol) is highly recommended as it is utilised more efficiently within the body than compared to supplementing D2 (Ergocalciferol).
