Desert Harvest Vitamin D3 (90 Capsules)
Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones, teeth, heart, nerves, muscles, immune system, and cell growth. It regulates calcium and phosphorus levels within the body, meaning it can be used for conditions caused by low levels of phosphorous (familial hypophosphatemia and Fanconi syndrome) and low levels of calcium (hypoparathyroidism and pseudohypoparathyroidism). Vitamin D also plays an important role in maintaining proper bone structure and is used for treating weak bones (osteoporosis), bone pain (osteomalacia) preventing falls and fractures in people at risk for osteoporosis, and preventing low calcium and bone loss (renal osteodystrophy) in people with kidney failure.
Vitamin D is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also used for diabetes, obesity, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and tooth and gum disease. Some people use vitamin D for skin conditions including vitiligo, scleroderma, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, and lupus vulgaris. It helps to support immune, brain and nervous system function; it regulates insulin levels; and higher blood levels of vitamin D have been associated with lower incidence of various types of cancer.

|Tiny says: During the winter months I supplement with at least 1000 IU of vitamin D3 each day to help prevent colds and seasonal blues. In the UK it’s really hard to get all the vitamin D we need from sunlight during the winter (and during the summer too some years!!), especially if we have an indoor job. I take 1000 IU as a maintenance dose and if I do feel that I’m starting with a cold, or if I’ve not managed to get any fresh air during the day, I take more. If you want to know lots more about vitamin D, have a look at the Vitamin D Society’s website where you can read blogs about vitamin D, watch videos about vitamin D and even buy books about vitamin D!|
