How vitamin D3 can support your immune system*
MegaFood | Sept. 2020
Vitamin D is a powerful nutrient that performs many roles in the body. You’re likely aware of its role in healthy bone development, but did you know it’s also vital for a properly functioning immune system?* We produce vitamin D in response to sun exposure, which happens to decrease during the same times of year we find ourselves facing seasonal immune challenges. In fact, “studies suggest that people with low levels of vitamin D may be more likely to have more seasonal immune challenges than those with normal levels” (Fortify Your Life, 129).
While it gets more difficult to get the sunlight we need during the darker, colder fall and winter months, we still need to keep vitamin D top of mind. Fortunately, we make it really easy to get The Sunshine Vitamin all year-round with our line of vitamin D3 products in a range of formats and doses!

Made with organic brown rice, organic parsley leaf, organic broccoli, organic carrot and organic beet root to provide synergistic cofactors,* this formula helps maintain strong bones and healthy hormone production.*
