The Importance of Sunshine
Vitamin D is not really a vitamin because it is synthesized by the skin following exposure to sunlight. Synthesis of vitamin D depends upon a wide number of factors including the type of ultraviolet light as well as the intensity, duration of exposure, skin pigmentation, age, altitude, latitude, hour of day and time of year.
Vitamin D Deficiency – A Common Problem in all Age Groups
Vitamin D deficiency is widespread across all population groups. Most physicians recognize that the elderly population is at risk, however it is less appreciated that children, young adults and middle age groups are also at risk. Supplementing with vitamin D can have a positive impact on the ability of the body to fight against illness, inflammatory and mood disorders; it may also benefit chronic pain, autoimmune diseases and many other health conditions. Vitamin D3 is much better absorbed than Vitamin D2, which is a plant source.
AOR’s Vitamin D3 provides and effective source of natural vitamin D3 from lanolin, a naturally occurring oil found in the wool of sheep. No harm comes to the animals during shearing.
