Although all of the 2,000 or so nutrients in existence benefit your health in some way, vitamin D truly stands out as a superstar because of the wide range of ways it enhances your health and protects against disease.

Now, when most people think of vitamin D they think “strong bones.” That’s true--vitamin D does help to regulate the level of calcium in your blood and in doing so, supports healthy bones (and prevents osteoporosis too).

But that’s just the tip of the vitamin D iceberg.

Here is more of this impressive nutrient’s resume:

Immune support

Vitamin D is a potent immune modulator, making it a vital player in the prevention of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s and colitis), systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), Type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and psoriasis.

It also protects against infectious diseases such as COVID, HIV, influenza and other viruses. 

Cardiovascular health

Vitamin D’s anti-inflammatory actions support cardiovascular health and help regulate blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

It plays a vital role in protecting and repairing damage to your endothelium (the inner lining of your blood vessels) which helps reduce hypertension, atherosclerotic heart disease, heart attack and stroke.

In addition, it also helps trigger your body’s production of nitric oxide — which improves blood flow and prevents blood clot formation.

Type 2 diabetes prevention 

The role of vitamin D in regulating your blood calcium isn’t just limited to your bones.

Calcium also plays a key role in your body’s ability to control glucose and insulin levels, so having adequate blood calcium (which depends on having enough vitamin D) is important to prevent Type 2 diabetes.

In addition, vitamin D also encourages proper pancreatic function. Since your pancreas produces insulin, which in turn tells your cells to take in glucose from your bloodstream, vitamin D indirectly supports healthy blood glucose levels.

Reduced risk of mood disorders and neurological diseases

Because it acts like a hormone within our bodies and affects brain function, vitamin D has been shown to help reduce the risk of mood disorders including depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and severe mood problems experienced during PMS, insomnia and anxiety.

It also helps protect against neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy and Parkinson’s.

Cancer prevention

Vitamin D plays an important role in your cell activity—helping to regulate cell multiplication and cell death (apoptosis).

Cancer is characterized by excessive cell multiplication, along with a slowing down in apoptosis. That’s how tumors form and take over surrounding tissues—they keep multiplying and don’t die off.

But vitamin D’s ability to encourage proper cell activity shines through here--studies have found that it acts to decrease the growth of cancer cells and to stimulate the death of those deadly cells.

Research has shown that vitamin D can help reduce the risk of breast, colon and ovarian cancers, due to its role in the cell life cycle, plus its ability to block excess estrogen.

Could you be running low?

Current estimates show that up to 90 percent of US adults have a degree of vitamin D deficiency, with 40 percent of us being profoundly deficient!

Here are some signs and risk factors to look out for:

  • You live in the northern hemisphere where sunlight is limited for a good portion of the year.
  • You avoid the sun and/or use sunscreens. Your body makes vitamin D when your unprotected skin is exposed to sunlight, but this can’t happen if you are always indoors. Plus sunscreens block between 90 – 99 percent of your body’s ability to make vitamin D (in addition to most of them being downright toxic).
  • You have dark skin. Dark skinned individuals don’t produce as much vitamin D as lighter skinned people.
  • You're over age 50. As we age, our skin’s production of vitamin D decreases.
  • You're overweight. Since vitamin D is fat-soluble, your body fat can act like a sponge and sop up the vitamin D, leaving less for your other cells that need it.
  • You have digestive issues or have had your gallbladder out. Digestive problems or weakened bile from missing your gallbladder can affect your abilty to digest and absorb fats, which are needed for your body to absorb vitamin D.
  • You feel moody or depressed. Vitamin D is essential for mental health.
  • You rely on your diet as a source of vitamin D. Food sources of vitamin D are limited and drinking a glass of milk won’t provide nearly what your body needs.

Make sure you have enough!

Hopefully, you’ve gotten the idea that vitamin D is not something you want to be low in!

You can get your level tested by a doctor to see where you stand. Some doctors still don’t routinely test for vitamin D, so you may have to ask for it.

To increase your vitamin D level, try to get brief periods (10-20 minutes) of unprotected time in the sun, weather permitting. Be careful to never get a sunburn.

And to help ensure you have health-supporting levels of vitamin D 365 days a year, it’s wise to supplement with an outstanding product like Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B.

In addition to getting the recommended 5,000 IUs of vitamin D3 in each capsule, you’ll also get the added benefit of vitamins K1 (500 mcg) and K2 (50 mcg).

Like vitamin D, vitamin K also provides bone support. Several studies have shown that vitamin K supplementation was associated with a reduced risk of fractures. It also helps prevent atherosclerosis by keeping calcium out of your artery linings where it can cause damage. 

But that’s not all.

Because Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B goes beyond other Vitamin D supplements by including the mineral boron, which further supports strong bone, immune and cardiovascular health!

Let Optimum DK Formula with FruiteX-B give your body the disease protection it deserves, so you can pave the way for strong health into your golden years!

To your health,
