Item: Live-well SUNSHINE VITAMIN-D3 2 x 100's + 60's
Your Trusted Source of Natural Vitamin D3 for
Prevention of Health Conditions Related to Vitamin-D3 Deficiency
Live-well SUNSHINE VITAMIN-D3 contains Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) which is critically important to health and life. Vitamin D deficiency is estimated to affect 1/3 to half the adult population worldwide. Living in tropical sunny Malaysia also does not mean you are getting enough of the sunshine nutrient- Vitamin D!
Many recent studies have found that Vitamin D - once thought to be crucial only to bone health; is useful throughout the body, from strengthening the immune system to controlling cell growth. More than 2000 genes or about 6 percent of the human genome are regulated (controlled) by Vitamin D. Every tissue in the body has receptors for Vitamin D, meaning that Vitamin D is needed at optimal levels for the tissues to function well.
Numerous studies have linked low levels of Vitamin D with 18 types of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, age related mental function, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), depression, osteoporosis (brittle bones), osteomalacia (soft bones) and gum disease. Vitamin D supplementation in pregnant women can help prevent autism, decrease the risk of caesarean section as well as pre-eclampsia.
New medical evidence shows that getting enough Vitamin D may be the most IMPORTANT thing you can do for your health.
