An overwhelming number of Americans are deficient in vitamin D all
year long. In fact, one study published in Nutrition Research put that
number at 41.6 percent.
But it gets worse in the Winter!
In the winter, our levels of the “sunshine vitamin” tend to drop even further, with scientists at the University of California–Davis stating
that current recommended intake levels for vitamin D need to be increased by as much as 500 percent
New research shows that many people in northern latitudes are
deficient in Vitamin D, because sunlight is insufficient during the
winters to stimulate the production of vitamin D in skin. So even if
you are IN the sun you are not producing enough Vitamin D during
these Winter months!
These deficiencies have been linked to higher rates of certain cancers, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune conditions,
skin diseases, and mood disorders.
1. Bone Loss:
A diagnosis of low bone mineral density may be a major sign of
vitamin D deficiency. Getting enough of this vitamin is important
for preserving bone mass as you get older.
2. Getting Sick or Infected Often:
One of vitamin D’s most important roles is keeping your immune
system strong so you’re able to fight off the viruses and bacteria
that cause illness.
3. Chronic Fatigue and Tiredness:
Feeling tired can have many causes and vitamin D deficiency may
be one of them. Unfortunately, it’s often overlooked as a potential
In one case, a woman who complained of chronic daytime fatigue and headaches was found to have a D3 blood level of only 5.9 ng/ml.
This is extremely low, and anything under 20 ng/ml is deficient.
4. Bone and Back Pain:
Bone pain and lower back pain may be signs of inadequate vitamin D levels in the blood. Vitamin D is involved in maintaining bone health through a number of mechanisms. For one, it improves your body’s absorption of calcium.
A depressed mood may also be a sign of deficiency. In review studies, researchers have linked vitamin D deficiency to depression, particularly in older adults. That is why so many people get depressed in the Winter.
When you notice persistent health issues like these, you may want to consider a quality D3 + Vitamin K2 supplement.
Not All Vitamin D is created Equal (what you need to know)
1. NEVER take Vitamin D Without Vitamin K2
Just as important as vitamin D3 is taking vitamin K2! Taking Vitamin D without vitamin K could actually be harmful to your Health!
When it comes to calcium metabolism, vitamins D and K work together. Both play important roles. Vitamin D gets calcium into your blood and Vitamin K gets it to the bones and prevents the calcium from accumulating in your arteries, kidneys or heart.
You don’t want rogue calcium going to the wrong places, causing joint stiffness or arterial plaque. Vitamin K2 insures that your body uses calcium properly.
2. Most D3 Supplements are NOT absorbable.
When D3 cannot be absorbed, your body is unable to assimilate and you will not get the benefits. So you still end up with the symptoms.
Vitamin D3 is fat-soluable. This means it needs to be taken with a healthy fat in order to be absorbed. Most Vitamin D supplements are not absorbable.
PuraTHRIVE Introduces Vitamin D3 with K2: a formula that’s “liposomalized”—meaning it’s specifically blended to make D3 + Vitamin K2 bind to phosphlipids (fats) that increase its bioavailability more than 185x times.
Signs of Dangerous Vitamin D Deficiency
(And What You Can Do About It)
Vitamin D deficiency is a silent epidemic.
The vast majority of the population is deficient, and there’s reason to believe it underlies a wide range of major health challenges.
Are You Deficient?
Unfortunately, there’s a good chance that you or a loved one are already being affected in some way by vitamin D deficiency.
If you often feel achy, tired, sick, or “blue,” your body may be crying out for vitamin D.
Some experts estimate that as high as 90% of the American population are vitamin D deficient, and even more conservative sources place the number above 50%. Here are some symptoms to watch out for.
Aching or Weak Bones
Fatigue or Weakness
The odds are stacked against you when it comes to avoiding vitamin D deficiency, simply because there are so many factors that put you at risk. If you fall into any of the following categories, you’re even more likely to be vitamin D deficient. ,,,,,,,,,
Why Vitamin D Deficiency Is So Dangerous
The symptoms listed above are just the tip of the iceberg—a landmark study conducted by the world’s top vitamin D researchers demonstrated that deficiency in this critical vitamin raises your risk of developing serious health conditions.
This is because vitamin D is absolutely invaluable for ensuring the body works properly.
It’s so essential that every cell in your body has a receptor for it. Your body needs vitamin D to maintain cellular integrity, so vitamin D deficiency jeopardizes the functioning of nearly all your body’s major systems.
The medical establishment used to think that vitamin D was only useful for regulating the level of calcium in the blood and keeping bones strong. While this is one of its many roles, we now know that there’s way more than just bone health at stake.
Vitamin D deficiency can wreak havoc on all of the following:
- Bone and muscle health
- Cognitive function
- Respiratory function
- Immune function
- Hearing and vision
- Blood pressure and circulation
- Pancreatic function
- Heart health
- Sleep patterns
- Mood and emotional balance
- Reproductive system
Health experts are shocked that “no international health organization or governmental body has declared a health emergency to warn the public about the urgent need” of maintaining optimal blood levels of vitamin D.
But you’ll never see vitamin D get nearly the coverage it deserves from mainstream medicine…mostly because it’s not a prescription drug. If you could take full control of your health simply by combatting a vitamin deficiency, how would Big Pharma make any money?
This is the secret they don’t want you to know: optimizing your vitamin D levels could be one of the most important health steps you’ve ever taken.
Why Are We So Deficient?
The situation may sound dire, but remember: if you’re deficient in vitamin D, it’s not your fault.
We live in a stressful, polluted, and nutrient-depleted world. Our stores are filled with foods that have been stripped of their vitamin content by sterile and mechanized production processes. Worst of all, we’re taught to be afraid of the sun (a primary source of vitamin D), and told to slather chemicals on our skin for “protection.”
Getting outside and soaking up the sun’s rays is only the beginning of the solution, though. And if you live any further north than Atlanta, Georgia, you’re out of luck…your body just won’t be able to manufacture vitamin D from sunlight most months of the year.
And don’t think those “fortified foods” will save you either. They contain woefully small quantities of vitamin D, usually in an inferior, hard-to-absorb form.
Luckily, there’s a better way…
