Only few foods contain vitamin D and for most people, the major source is the sun. Your body naturally produces vitamin D when UVB rays strike the skin, but depending on where you live, the time of year and the darkness of your skin, you may not get enough. The good news is that we can still get this sunshine vitamin — even on cloudy days. Let’s shine a light on PurePharma D3.
Strength. Protection. Prevention.
Your bones provide the framework you need to run, jump and do the heavy lifting in all of life’s tasks. The body requires vitamin D to absorb calcium and plays a major role in maintaining your bone and muscle function. Make sure you get enough vitamin D to keep your bones strong, so that no matter what comes your way, your bones are as strong as you are.
Take Care Of Your Immune System
Every day you are exposed to a great number of bacteria and other factors able to make you sick. Your immune system is what fights these invaders keeping you healthy and ready to achieve your goals. Vitamin D is essential for immune function and help maintain this great defense. Take care of your immune system with D3, so it can take care of you.
Sun or Supplement?
A main source of vitamin D is exposure to the sun. Today’s busy working life doesn’t allow for much time spent outside so supplementing is an easy way to get the vitamin D you need.
Your body needs fat to absorb vitamin D. We combined PurePharma D3 with organic, virgin coconut oil to ensure that you get the maximum benefit.
Vitamin D is sensitive to light, which will degrade the vitamin. That’s why we use dark capsules and dark bottles to protect your D3 from exposure to light.
UVB radiation from sunlight produces pre/Vitamin D in the skin, however, UVB radiation also causes melanoma, skin cancer and photo aging. Sunscreen effectively blocks the UVB rays and protects the skin. Therefore, it might still be necessary to take in Vitamin D to reach adequate levels.
Vitamin D3’s primary role is promoting absorption of calcium and phosphorus, which is critical for bone growth and maintenance. Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in the function of muscles and the immune system.
The amount of vitamin D you can get from the sun alone depends on time of day, geographical latitude, the color of your skin and the amount of skin you expose to sunlight. You produce most vitamin D in the middle of the day when the sun is high in the sky, and the closer to the equator you live the easier it is to produce vitamin D from sunlight. For example, in Florida your body can produce vitamin D most of the year, while in New York or Boston you can’t produce much vitamin D from November through March. The more melanin you have the darker your skin color, which works just like sunscreen in regard to UVB exposure.
