As the days get shorter and cooler, and our warmer apparel comes out of hibernation from the back of the closet, we switch our mindset from carefree summer to cozy winter. While sitting by the fire with a warm cup of cocoa, or dinner parties with friends and family may conjure up happy memories, chances are, most of us living in cooler climates will spend less time outside during the winter months. This pseudo-hibernation not only contributes to a less active lifestyle but getting far less direct exposure to sunlight results in other health issues all related to a sharp decrease in our Vitamin D intake.
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin”, is a fat-soluble essential vitamin produced by the body when the skin is exposed to UV light from the sun (i.e. sunlight) for prolonged periods. Vitamin D can also be acquired in the form of dietary supplements and from a number of food sources such as fish and dairy.
Without the continual replenishing of Vitamin D in our system, our bones become frailer, and our moods and hormones can be affected. Vitamin D supplementation is especially important and proven effective in high-risk groups, such as older adults, who do not have adequate exposure to prolonged sunlight, or who suffer from poor dietary intake or absorption. Research has shown that Vitamin D deficiency increases with age, due to decreased biological production.
Enter Sunnify, our newest addition to the Life Sprout family of products! Each bottle comprises 90 capsules of 125mcg (5,000 IU) of Vitamin D3 (derived from cholecalciferol). It helps with supporting numerous biological functions such as calcium absorption and maintaining healthy bones, hormonal balance, immune support, and reduction of inflammation. Research has shown it has beneficial effects on bone mineral density and fractures related to injuries from minor falls. Deficiency during aging has been linked to multiple health such as mood and cognitive decline, cardiovascular health, and blood sugar imbalance.
Sunnify, like all Life Sprout Bioceutical products, is manufactured in the US, where quality control and production standards are high, thereby ensuring maximum safety, quality and effectiveness. Try Sunnify today, risk-free and enjoy a happier and healthier winter season!
