What You Need to Know about D
What if I told you that there was a supplement that is beneficial to every single cell in your body? So beneficial in fact, that it has a positive role in longevity, bone health, autoimmune conditions, depression, neurological and cognitive function, pregnancy health, inflammation, organ and organ system health.
Fortunately for us, there is a vitamin that exists that called cholecalciferol, or Vitamin D3 that has all of these health promoting effects, and it's benefits have hovered under the radar for far too long. Simply calling D3 a "vitamin" wouldn't do justice to it's pro-hormone (hormone producing) role in the body, nor would it's classification as the "anti-rickets and bone-health" vitamin. In fact, the research is indisputable that Vitamin D3 supplementation is essential.
It seems to me that if a pharmaceutical company had the ability to produce such a compound, they would tout it as having the ability to improve the health of every single person in the world while simultaneously reducing the risk of some of the most widespread diseases. Not only would it be effective, there would be no negative side effects and the cost to you would be less than 20 cents/day.
