Why Should I Supplement With Vitamin D3?
Customer: To me, there's nothing better than being
outside on a really nice day. Whether I'm working in my garden or taking
a walk with my family, we all love the outdoors. But during my last
checkup, the doctor noticed that I wasn't getting enough vitamin D.
Michael A. Smith, MD: From your brain to your heart,
your bones to your immune system, vitamin D affects nearly every cell
in your body and is critical for optimal health. Even if you spend a
lot of time outdoors, your body may not be producing enough of this
important vitamin. In fact, studies show that people are really low in
vitamin D—and that's why doctors are recommending it to their patients
more than ever.
Customer: So, my body needs more vitamin D, but
there are all these different doses and options. How can I decide which
is best for me?
Michael A. Smith, MD: Like all of our products, Life
Extension’s Vitamin D3 is made with the highest quality standards. We
recommend taking 5,000 international units a day, but we offer doses
ranging from 1,000 to 7,000 units depending on your vitamin D blood
level. Be sure to check with your doctor to see which one is right for
you. We also offer Vitamins D and K with Sea-Iodine™ for a complete
vitamin D formulation.
Customer: Three weeks in, and vitamin D has really
made an impact on my whole life. I have more energy and overall, I feel
for lack of a better word…sunnier.
