Worldwide, an estimated one billion people have inadequate levels of vitamin D in their blood, and deficiencies can be found in all ethnicities and age groups’ (Harvard School of Public Health, 2012). It is important to know your vitamin D level and supplement according to your individual needs.
Strong bones and muscles, mental fitness, prevention of osteoporosis and better athletic performance are just a few of the benefits that are linked to healthy vitamin D levels in countless scientific studies. Young adults, elderly people and women all especially need to keep their vitamin D level in mind because they are at a higher risk.
Unfortunately, a vitamin D deficiency can not be ‘tasted’ or ‘felt’. Therefore, it is important to test for a vitamin d deficiency regularly.
With the cerascreen® Vitamin D Test, a diagnostic send-in test that you can use at home, you can determine your blood concentration of vitamin D and to monitor the level of 25-OH vitamin D in your blood. The Vitamin D Test includes a free return envelope and analysis in cerascreen's diagnostics laboratory as well as a detailed results report.
