Vitamin D is a critical component of an individual’s overall health and wellness. While most of us have heard of Vitamin D, also called the “sunshine” vitamin, many people don’t know how to increase their vitamin D intake or or they’re not aware of all the health benefits like:
- Regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus
- Decreasing the risk of disease including multiple sclerosis and heart disease
- Fighting depression
- Supporting normal bone and teeth growth
- Assisting with weight loss
- Preventing illness and infections like the flu. Former CDC Chief, Dr. Tom Frieden, even suggested that Vitamin D may reduce the risk of Coronavirus infection
Despite its many benefits, people still struggle to maintain the proper level of Vitamin D. An estimated 42% of Americans have Vitamin D deficiencies and can experience a number of symptoms including: Getting sick frequently, consistently feeling fatigued or tired, back pain or sore bones, depression, slow wound healing, or even hair loss.
Maximize Your Vitamin D Absorption
One of the reasons vitamin D deficiencies are so common is that there are not many foods high in Vitamin D, so even a balanced diet may not be enough to keep your body’s vitamin D at optimal levels. Fortunately, there are other ways to boost Vitamin D. The most straightforward way is to use a natural source everyone has access to—The Sun. As our skin is exposed to the suns rays, our body produce vitamin D on its own. Just be sure to wear sunscreen!
As more and more Americans are working indoors, it’s more difficult than ever to get enough sunlight each day. That’s where we come in. Prime IV offers numerous IV drips and hydration therapies specifically formulated to improve your health and wellness—including multiple drips with an impressive vitamin D boost.
