Vitamin D3 Spray (5000 IU) - Dr Mercola - 36 Servings
Introducing Dr Mercola's Sunshine Mist Vitamin D Spray -- the latest breakthrough in easy-to-use vitamin D3 supplementation. Every cell in your body needs vitamin D for your optimal well-being.
Are you getting enough?
Once thought of as only playing a role in certain diseases, researchers now realise that vitamin D affects virtually every cell and tissue in your body. And it affects numerous vitamin D receptors located throughout your body and nearly 3,000 genes.
Your cells need the active form of vitamin D to unlock the genetic blueprints stored inside the cell. Without these crucial blueprints, these aspects of your health could potentially be at risk:
|Maintenance of overall health||Cellular growth and development||Bone strength and health|
|Blood sugar health||Digestion and absorption of nutrients||Blood pressure health|
|Heart health||Vascular system health||Immune function|
|Joint health||Mood and overall feelings of well-being||Neurological and cognitive health|
|Muscular function||Skin health||Pancreatic function and health|
|Healthy ageing process||Sleep patterns||Hearing and vision|
|Reproductive health||Newborn health||Athletic performance|
|Respiratory function and health||Carbohydrate and fat metabolism||Metabolic rate|
|Weight management||Hair and hair follicles|
That may seem like a long list, but as research continues on vitamin D, you can expect to see it grow even longer..
Why a Spray Formula?
Providing most people far better results than with pills and tablets, Dr Mercola's Sunshine Mist Vitamin D Spray dispenses its nutrients in a form your body can put to use immediately.
As you probably know, vitamin D is an oil-soluble vitamin and there can be challenges absorbing it. This is why you only want to take it in oil form and avoid dry vitamin D tablets.
When you spray this fine-mist formula into your mouth and swallow, the essential nutrients flow quickly to your circulatory system, tissues and cells.
Alternatively you can try Dr Mercola's all-new Liposomal Vitamin D tablets, which employ ground-breaking liposomal technology to provide highly bio-available vitamin D through the gut.
Vitamin D Deficiency - Who is At Risk?
Because of vitamin D’s wide-reaching effects in your body, always check to see if you are deficient in this crucial nutrient when addressing any health concern, especially those listed above.
Certain groups of people may be at an increased risk for vitamin D deficiency, as well as individuals with some specific conditions. If any of the following apply to you, please get your vitamin D levels checked sooner than later.
It’s winter and you don’t live in the tropics or subtropics.
There simply isn’t enough, or even any UVB that reaches the ground in the winter if you are not in the tropics or subtropics, and exposure to UVB is how your body produces most of the vitamin D it requires naturally.
You have darker skin.
Those with darker skin may need as much as 10 times more sun exposure to produce the same amount of vitamin D as a person with pale skin.
You're 50 or older.
As you get older, your skin produces less vitamin D when exposed to the sun.
You spend a lot of time indoors.
If you avoid the sun or just aren’t able to get outdoors regularly, your levels of vitamin D are likely to be lower.
You're overweight or obese (or have a higher muscle mass).
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble, hormone-like vitamin, so body fat can act like a sponge. A heavier person with more body fat or even those with more muscle mass may require a higher dose than a slimmer person.
You have gut issues.
If you have a gastrointestinal condition that affects your ability to absorb fat you may have lower absorption of vitamin D.
You’re achy or tired, or both.
The classic signs of a certain type of vitamin D deficiency can mimic conditions characterised by fatigue and achy bones.
You sometimes feel "blue."
Serotonin, the brain hormone associated with mood elevation, rises with exposure to bright light and falls with decreased sun exposure.
Pregnant women require higher amounts of vitamin D for their own pregnancy and delivery as well as the optimal health of their babies.
You notice unusual head sweating.
Surprisingly, one of the first signs of a vitamin D deficiency is a sweaty head.
Please check with your medical practitioner before using, to decide what dosage is appropriate for you. The NHS also publishes some guidelines.
Getting enough daily vitamin D has been no easy task until now, as Dr Mercola Sunshine Mist Vitamin D Spray supplies 5,000IU in each pre-metered dose of crucial vitamin D3. Each dose is 5,000, which is 5 squirts of spray at 1000IU each. If you wish to take less, simply reduce the number of squirts to 1.
This is one of the easiest ways to supplement kids with Vitamin D, (check suitability of dose) with the bonus of being great tasting too.
