Every Cell in Your Body Has a Vitamin D Receptor

That means every cell in your body needs vitamin D

What are your vitamin D levels?

Test your current vitamin D levels right from your home

Vitamin D impacts our immune system and many other important functions…healthy bones, quality of sleep, depression, moods, body aches and pains, energy and yes even brain fog.

Many times, we hear the medical field say, “that’s just part of aging,” you have to learn to live with it.  Yet, something as simple and inexpensive as quality vitamin D can make a profound difference in your quality of life since many Americans are deficient.  Vitamin D is equally important for children. 

Now you can check it your self!

Doctor’s Data (at HOME) Vitamin D Blood Spot Test

Spending 20 minutes in the sun with 40% body exposure to the sun is recommended to maintain vitamin D levels.  But this does not guarantee it will work for everyone even if you find the time to do so.  Because vitamin D must go through a process to be absorbed.  Take a look:

Vitamin D is absorbed through the skin

Liver transforms vitamin D into a precursor active form

Kidneys then play a role to activate the vitamin D

Healthy gut is essential to absorb the vitamin D

Who is Especially at High Risk?

Individuals with darker skin pigmentation have increased amounts of melanin in their skin which decreases the efficacy of vitamin D absorption; this is why African Americans and Hispanics have a 90% greater risk of vitamin D deficiency. [1]

Desk Jobs & Sun Screen – The human body is designed to thrive on moderate, daily sun exposure. And not only do sunscreens block vitamin D production, many brands contain toxic chemicals that can do more harm than good. [2]

Women with Osteoporosis Osteoporosis,the “thin bone” disease that leads to fractures and spinal deformities is on the rise. [3]

Chronic illnesses – People with chronic kidney disease, chronic liver disease, nursing home residents, elderly women over 80 years of age and hospitalized patients. [4]

Irritable Bowel – Malabsorption syndromes such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac sprue, short bowel syndrome, celiac disease, and cystic fibrosis. [5]

Six Telltale Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency

As said previously in this article, most people don’t realize they’re deficient in vitamin D until it’s too late. This is because the symptoms are often subtle and confused with “normal aging.”

 1. Feeling Tired All the Time: Tiredness and fatigue can have many causes, and vitamin D deficiency is often one of them. Even having slightly low blood levels of vitamin D can have a negative impact on your energy levels.

2. Low Mood: A depressed mood is a common sign of vitamin D deficiency, especially in older adults. If you feel down or irritable often, there is a good chance your vitamin D levels are too low to support healthy mood balance.

3. Weak Bones: Vitamin D plays a crucial role in maintaining strong bones by supporting calcium absorption and bone metabolism. Many women with bone loss believe they need more calcium, yet very often they are deficient in vitamin D.

4. Getting Sick Often: Keeping your immune system strong is one of vitamin D’s most important roles. It directly interacts with the cells responsible for warding off pathogens. If you find you get sick often, low vitamin D levels may be to blame. 

5. Unexplained Aches and Pains: Muscle pain and weakness is a red flag that you have inadequate vitamin D levels in your blood. This is because your body’s vitamin D receptors are present in the nerve cells that sense pain.  

6. Poor Weight Distribution in Women [7]

Taking a Bioavailable Vitamin D is a great way to boost your vitamin D levels.
