Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that prevents rickets in children, maintains bone density in adults, may inhibit cancers such as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and possibly lessens the risk of diseases like multiple sclerosis.
While it is true that sunlight stimulates the production of vitamin D, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends that you get your daily value from non-sun sources. (If you seek your vitamin D from the sun, you’ll soak up a whole lot more than you bargained for, including accelerated aging and an increased risk of developing skin cancer.)
Instead, get your “D” from a range of sources, such as orange juice, fortified milk, salmon and other fatty fishes, and from a multivitamin.
For the most consistent results, we recommend a supplement. A once-weekly dose of 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 (the most absorbable form) with time-release technology will ensure you get the appropriate daily dose. Take it year-round to support strong bones, muscles and a healthy immune system. Your skin—and your body—will be “D-lighted.”
