Hair analysis and Vitamin D3

Posted by Eileen Durfee on 23rd Sep 2015

Vitamin D is deficient in most people today as food and sunshine do not supply adequate amounts of it. Most people need a lot more than even the minimum daily requirement. Experts agree that adults tend to need about 5000 IU of vitamin D each day, which one capsule of Vitamin D from Endo-met can provide.  Children also need vitamin D but in lesser amounts.

A major function of Vitamin D is to maintain calcium and phosphorus’s blood serum concentrations. This is accomplished by increasing the absorption of minerals in the small intestine. Enhanced calcium absorption is helpful to maintain optimal bone health.

Supplemented vitamin D helps to replenish it in tissue stores and prevent risk of deficiency. Those who are deficient in vitamin D can experience calcium and bone metabolism abnormalities, including rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults.

Vitamin D helps support:

  • Cardiovascular health
  • Aching muscles
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Immune system regulation
  • Inflammation
  • Mental health
  • Skin health
  • Repair and maintenance functions

Those who are willing to eat 3-4 cans of sardines each week can substitute this for a vitamin D supplement. This is a fantastic alternative as sardines provide many additional vital nutrients, and cost less compared to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. Other fish are also rich in vitamin D, but are not recommended due to their high mercury content.

Although taking vitamin D is important to prevent deficiency, it is also critical to not take too much for risk of overdose. Both taking a supplement and eating sardines each week is too much vitamin D. Invest in a hair analysis to reveal your needs and correctly supplement your body with the Vitamin D it desires. Endo-met’s Vitamin D is available from Wellness Shopping Online in both 90 and 180 tabs.
