Importance of Vitamin D
Vitamin D levels in the body are determined by testing the concentration of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D in the blood. Appropriate blood concentrations of vitamin D are associated with good health and a better sense of well-being.6-9 Many believe that the greatest benefit of vitamin D is to promote optimal general health, specifically cardiovascular health, immune system function and cell growth.10-12
There are 4 main sources of vitamin D: sunlight, artificial UVB light (tanning beds), some foods (natural and fortified) and supplements.
When skin is exposed to summer sunlight (UVB), vitamin D3 is made naturally within the skin. For people with light skin, about 10 minutes of sunbathing on each side of the body in direct summer noon-day sun can produce up to 10,000 IU of vitamin D into the bloodstream.13 For people with dark skin, up to 6 times longer exposure may be needed for the same effect. From late fall until early spring in the northern USA, outdoor sunshine is generally not strong enough to make vitamin D naturally within our skin. A common rule of thumb is that if your shadow is longer than you are tall, you can’t make vitamin D.
During the summer, many people are advised to avoid direct sun exposure because of the risk of skin cancer. Using sunscreen blocks skin from producing vitamin D. Sunscreen with an SPF of 8 has been reported to reduce the production of vitamin D by 95%.14 The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends getting vitamin D through a healthy diet that may include vitamin supplements. Don’t seek the sun, suggests the AAD.i Vitamin D supplements are safe to use and equally effective as the sun in maintaining healthy levels of this vitamin in the body while avoiding the risk of skin cancer from sun exposure.ii
Ddrops® can be given without a prescription. It is important to understand the use of this product. It may also be important to consult your health care provider (general practitioner, nurse, pharmacist, dietician) if you need more information. If you are already using other vitamin supplements that contain vitamin D, talk to your health care professional before using these Ddrops®.
