The human body is designed to obtain Vitamin D3 from the sun, why should I supplement it?
Spending 20 minutes in direct sunlight initiates Vitamin D3 synthesis in the skin (around 400 IU, which is not enough for your daily supply), but absorbing 400IU is only feasible in midsummer around lunch time without sunscreen. But who wants to risk an older-looking skin or skin cancer in worst case? Besides that, in winter time sun rays are not strong enough to release Vitamin D3 synthesis. You can also get Vitamin D3 from food – in the oil made from tuna liver, or halibut. However, to get a sufficient supply you have to eat at least 800 grams.
Why is it so important to have a Vitamin D3 product which is combined with oil?
Science has proven that combining Vitamin D3 and monounsaturated fat, like coconut or olive oil, leads to a much better absorption.
Some studies show that supplementation with Vitamin D3 helps with weight loss. Is that true?
A study from the University of Milan found that supplementing Vitamin D3 led to weight loss in obese and overweight people who had a deficiency in Vitamin D3.
Why do we need Vitamin D3?
Each and every tissue in your body needs Vitamin D3 and won´t work if you don´t get enough – a deficiency can also lead to serious chronic diseases like high blood pressure, osteoporosis and several forms of cancer.
How can Vitamin D3 have an impact on my athletic performance?
Strong bones are equally as important as strong muscles – and a Vitamin D3 deficiency can lead to osteoporosis and muscle weakness. Also, if you are sick less often, you can work out consistently with better results! Since Vitamin D3 is boosting your immune system, you can counteract typical diseases like flu or cold.
