Vitamin D

 Radiant Sunshine.

Vitamin D - is commonly known as the sunshine vitamin. This is a perfect word for this glorious nutrient. Sunlight, specifically UV light, is the source for your body's vitamin D level - and by all means, soak it in - cholesterol in the skin converts into vitamin D in the body; that's part of what cholesterol is here to do! It is hard to get enough sunlight to provide the body with the required vitamin D, especially if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, work inside, wear high SPF, or have darker skin pigmentation. It can be consumed in large quantities through animal organ meats if that is a part of your diet, but according to the statistics, that’s a small portion of folks. Most other food sources that contain it have been fortified or supplemented with the vitamin. 

Adding it to our THRIVE and NOURISH formulas ensures you get the proper dose. It also compliments vitamin K2 well, improving the absorption rate for both vitamins.
