This at-home test can be used to ensure you have adequate levels of Vitamin D to maintain bone and cellular health.
Vitamin D Test
Vitamin D plays a vital role in the body’s ability to regulate the absorption and levels of calcium and phosphorus. It also greatly influences your ability to maintain a healthy bone structure, reduce inflammation, and promotes cell growth.
Commonly referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin,” Vitamin D is fat-soluble and is stored in the fatty tissues of the body, which is then released when not in direct sunlight. We typically get 50-90% of our Vitamin D from the sunlight itself, with the remainder coming from our diet, where it is mostly found within fatty fishes (sardines, salmon, mackerel etc.), egg yolks, and fortified dairy products.
Vitamin D deficiency is also believed to contribute to serious illnesses like:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Many Different Types of Cancer
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- A Variety of Autoimmune Diseases
- Periodontal Disease
