Sunshine in a Capsule

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble hormone (yes, it’s actually a hormone!) that your body can produce naturally. There are a number of forms of Vitamin D, but the two most important ones are D2 and D3. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, is made by the skin naturally. Our bodies need D3 for things such as calcium absorption and bone strength… just another incredible cycle performed by nature to provide vitality in human life.

Surprisingly huge parts of the population are deficient in essential Vitamin D, especially us Pacific North-West folks whose weather (not by choice) contains A LOT of rain! And that is where our supplement for Vitamin D3 all started. The effects of not enough sun exposure include symptoms like depression, hypertension, low immunity and diseases like Rheumatoid arthritis. Through self-study and education on natural ways to avoid such ailments, the sunshine vitamin came alive.

That being said, those with a suitable level of Vitamin D in their diet and those who supplement are much better equipped to fight off colds and the flu. These strengths are super important for those crisp fall walks and long winter months. Who’s going to have the strength and immunity to bust out the snow shovel when an unexpected dump of snow decides to fall? Well, we have the secret ingredient for that!
Our Vitamin D3 comes from the highest quality and sustainable source we could find. Each capsule contains 5,000 IU offering the body a safe and adequate amount to truly reap the benefits of this powerhouse nutrient.

From fighting infections, cancer, and depression to promoting healthy bones and teeth, even going as far as increased brain function, our Vitamin D3 is a staple in households for optimum health. Doesn’t it just make sense when you think of the sun and all its powers, what sort of capabilities it has for us?

Be strong like the sun and shine through winter months with this little ray of sunshine, tucked away in your medicine cabinet.
