My family has been investigating what we can do to stay healthier this winter. One of the vitamins that we’ve been looking at is Vitamin D. I’ve read all about its powerful immune-boosting capabilities. But what I didn’t realize was that Vitamin D packs more punch than just boosting immunity.
- Vitamin D supports teeth, bone, and immune health.
- Vitamin D supports the absorption of calcium. It also supports breast, colon and prostate health, and contributes to the maintenance of a healthy mood.
- Ensuring healthy levels of Vitamin D in your body may promote heart health.
- Vitamin D supplements come in two forms: Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is the most effective for maintaining adequate levels of Vitamin D in the body.
Vitamin D3 can be made naturally by our bodies, but let’s face it… Who spends enough time out in the sun year-round to be sure that we’re making enough? I know I sure don’t! I know that eating dairy products helps, but it’s just not enough.
As a woman, I also want to make sure that my body is absorbing calcium the way it’s supposed to in order to avoid osteoporosis when I’m older. I just watched this short video about Vitamin D and how it works to get calcium to our bones.
We just stopped by Walmart to check out their Vitamin D offerings.
Oh my! There were so many to choose from. I was especially impressed with the price of the Nature Made Vitamin D. Not only is the product not expensive… They also offer Nature Made printable coupons that you can use to save money.
Take a look at our Vitamin D shopping trip here. We had fun checking out all the options. I’m sold on the fact that taking care of ourselves doesn’t have to break the bank. And we’re worth it!
Do you take Vitamin D? If so, do you take it for immunity? Or did you already know about the bone-building benefits of Vitamin D?
