Vitamin D3: What it is, Why You Need it and Where to Get it

Are you aware of how insanely good for your health Vitamin D3 is?  Sure, most people understand it has benefits as far as strengthening your bones, but did you know it also aids in the health and functioning of your heart, brain and immune system as well?

What is Vitamin D3?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the term “Vitamin D3” refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids that allows your body to absorb things like zinc, iron, calcium, phosphate and magnesium.

Why do we need Vitamin D3?

In short, Vitamin D3 helps essential nutrients and minerals absorb into the body in order to do what they are designed to do.  A lack of Vitamin D3 can be detrimental to the overall functioning of the body because of its role in facilitating so many other important functions. 

Where can I find Vitamin D3?

The greatest source of Vitamin D3 comes straight from the sun; however, because of the everyday lives that most people live, combined with fluctuations in weather, it is not always possible for an individual to spend a sufficient amount of time in the sun on a regular basis.

While the sun will always be around to provide Vitamin D3 to those that are able to spend time outside to absorb it, there are also ways to supplement your Vitamin D3 intake as well to promote healthy functioning within the body.
