About D Vitamins

Vitamin D is also known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it can be made in the body through exposure to direct sunlight.  It is also available in some foods such as cold water fish like herring, mackerel, and sardines and is added to dairy products, juices and some cereals.  Despite the availability of the vitamin in foods and with sun exposure most Americans are deficient. ϯ

In order to obtain the same amount of Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol in aVivoPur Hi-Potency Vitamin D3, you would need to spend more than 60 minutes in direct sunlight every day.  This is not possible for all people – especially in the winter months and in people who have skin prone to sunburn.  In addition, the darker your skin, the longer it takes for your body to make enough Vitamin D.  In the diet, you would need to eat 12 or more servings of cereals or other foods daily for the same amount of Vitamin D. ϯ

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin which means it can potentially store in your body to toxic levels.  While many people are deficient in vitamin D, webmd.com offers the following precautions: “Some side effects of taking too much vitamin D include weakness, fatigue, sleepiness, headache, loss of appetite, dry mouth, metallic taste, nausea, vomiting, and others. Taking vitamin D for long periods of time in doses higher than 4000 units daily is POSSIBLY UNSAFE and may cause excessively high levels of calcium in the blood. However, much higher doses are often needed for the short-term treatment of vitamin D deficiency. This type of treatment should be done under the supervision of a healthcare provider.”
