If you yo-yo in and out of suboptimal vitamin D status (or even swing into deficient states), you may never reach truly sufficient levels throughout your lifespan—which, in turn, has broad health implications for your bones, muscles, immunity, neurological function, cardiometabolic health, and more.*
Take it from Ferira: “Vitamin D sufficiency doesn’t just mean you’re meeting a 25(OH)D level or cutoff,” she says. “It means your bones, muscles, immune cells, brain, heart, liver, gut, reproductive organs, and many more cells, tissues, and organs have this critical nutrient available in adequate quantities to bind to vitamin D receptors and promote calcium and phosphorus balance, bone mineralization, muscle strength, immune function, cardiometabolic health, and more.”*
And to achieve consistently sufficient levels, again, requires daily maintenance—and daily supplementation is the best evidence-based way to ensure you have enough vitamin D every single day.* Food and sunshine don’t exactly cut it (here’s why), and prominent D experts and the latest research suggest 5,000 I.U. of D3 per day, which helps you hit an optimal 50 ng/ml level (and keep it there), is a truly effective dose.*
This is exactly why we created vitamin D3 potency+, which offers 5,000 I.U. of vitamin D3 per gelcap (sourced from sustainable organic algae) and features a built-in trio of organic, virgin oils from avocado, flaxseed, and olives (so you can take it with or without a meal).* Because, yes, healthy vitamin D status requires daily maintenance—but that doesn’t mean it has to be some giant undertaking.
