Best Absorbed Vitamin D

Vitamin D3 is an essential nutrient that most people who live in temperate climates are deficient in due to the lack of sunshine and skin exposure to the sun’s rays. The sun’s UVB rays are responsible for creating vitamin D3 in our body, through the interaction with cholesterol. It is important to note that we require Vitamin D3 as a potent anti-oxidant and cancer preventative! Yes, that’s right, we need Vitamin D3 to prevent cancer, even though we’ve been taught through the media that the sun is harmful and causes skin cancer. I believe we should all get some healthy sun exposure, in the summer months to improve our Vitamin D levels. This means exposing our arms and legs to the sun, for at least 15 minutes, 4-6 days per week, between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. If you live closer to the equator, you naturally have more exposure to the sun than someone like me, who lives in Canada and has many cold winter months, without sunshine. If you are able to travel to a warmer climate in the winter months to get some natural sun exposure, this is fantastic.
The beauty benefits of Vitamin D3 are surprising. Vitamin D3 helps improve skin tone and texture, “Having sufficient vitamin D in the skin helps minimize acne, boost elasticity, stimulates collagen production, enhances radiance, and lessen lines and the appearance of dark spots, he says.” Dr. Dennis Gross, board certified NYC dermatologist.
Recent medical news has shown that Vitamin D3 is best produced and absorbed into the skin after 48 hours post sun exposure. It is recommended that once you have had your sunbathing session, you should avoid washing your skin with soap for the next 2 days as this will wash away much of the Vitamin D3 your body has produced in the sebum of your skin cells. I would suggest you not wash your arms and legs perhaps, but do wash your other parts with soap, to avoid body odor and bacterial multiplication.
For those people who simply cannot get enough sunshine, I recommend a Vitamin D3 supplement, like VitaTree Vitamin D3. This unique formulation of Vitamin D3 is made from lanolin, the oil secreted by sheep’s wool. This is the next best way to get your Vitamin D, and in the right form being D3, cholecalciferol. Vitamin D2, ergocalciferol, is the Vitamin D supplemented in most food sources and has very little absorption as compared to D3.

3 Ways to Fight Fat!

The battle of the bulge is a constant focus for a number of women and men, who despite their best efforts, have difficulty losing that stubborn weight once and for all. Here are my three tips in terms of supplementation for effective weight loss.

1. Detoxification- helps to eliminate stored toxins from the fat cells. Once the toxins are released, the body no longer has to hold onto excess water and fat to dilute the toxins. See my formula VitaDetox for whole body detoxification, with or without dietary changes, it’s up to you!

2. Fibre- Fibre helps make you feel full, so you can end up eating less. Plus, fibre helps elimination through the bowel. See VitaMucil from VitaTree Nutritionals. High fibre capsules that are easy to swallow with no mixing needed!

3. Calcium and Vitamin D3- Studies show that a calcium and D3 deficiency leads to weight gain and the ability to lose weight is hampered. Calcium should be a whole food calcium, not a tablet or capsule that are usually laded with fillers, binding agents and flow agents. See my Whole Food Coral Calcium.

So what is all the fuss about Coral Calcium and Vitamin D? The truth is nature has provided these nutrients so our bodies can function optimally. Coral calcium is a storehouse of essential nutrients, containing not only calcium, but close to 70 other essential minerals.

Vitamin D, Do You Get Enough?

Dec 6th, 2010 Posted in health, Uncategorized, vitamins, women's health | No Comments »

Recent news questions the need to supplement with Vitamin D. I still believe that it is imperative that we get enough Vitamin D, especially in the winter months, living in Canada. For most people, getting enough means supplementing with a high quality Vitamin D, in the form of D3. Vitamin D is fat soluble, meaning it is not easily excreted from the body. There is a possibility of overdoing it and supplementing too much.
I recommend 1000 IU to 3000 IU per day of Vitamin D3. VitaTree Nutritionals will soon launch D3, so watch for it. This high quality Vitamin D supplement is in 1000 IU capsules, with no toxic fillers or preservatives.
