Why you (likely) need to supplement vitamin D today!
Quick 1 Minute Read
The combination of Vitamin D3 and Go Condition is ideal for supporting your immune system this flu season.
Vitamin D is plentiful in most people's bodies in the summer, but much harder to make in the darker months. Supplementation can bridge the gap.
Read on to know more about Vitamin D and why it pairs so well with Go Condition for all the immune support you need.
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is both a nutrient we eat and a hormone our bodies make. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that is responsible for multiple biological processes. Vitamin D, which has always been known for its capacity to support the absorption of calcium, has more recently been found to support immune function, a healthy inflammatory response, and muscle function. A low vitamin D level is associated with a higher risk for various chronic health concerns, including heart disease and diabetes.
How do I get it? (It's easier when the sun is shining)
Unlike vitamins that must be acquired from outside sources, humans can make vitamin D in their skin with adequate exposure to sunlight. In circumstances where we get limited sunlight, or because we might not consume adequate dietary sources of vitamin D, many of us are at risk of having too low a level.
Few foods are naturally rich in vitamin D3. The best sources are the flesh of fatty fish and fish liver oils. (not everyone's favorite).
Smaller amounts are found in egg yolks, cheese, and beef liver. Hence vegetarians and people following a vegan lifestyle are particularly prone to be deficient, especially during the colder months.
How much Vitamin D do I need?
A healthy vitamin D level can be crucial for optimal athletic performance, bone repair after exercise or injury, normal muscle function, healthy immune function, and cardiovascular health. Athletes and individuals with physically demanding occupations should especially seek to ensure they maintain a higher level of vitamin D. *
Potential symptoms of low vitamin D
Although having a low level of vitamin D is typically asymptomatic, you might experience:
- More frequent infections and other inflammatory conditions
- Persistent Fatigue
- Muscle or bone discomfort
- Consistent depressed or sad mood
Why do I need Go Condition as well?
Go Condition has been proven in clinical trials to moderate and reduce inflammation and the inflammatory response in athletes. This capability is vital to help athletes and others to respond appropriately to inflammation caused by exercise which is often linked to post exercise illness. For any athlete who wants to maintain their form through the winter, Go Condition is a great choice and when combined with Vitamin D it will help keep your inflammatory responses where you want them, and help ward of the threat of your body being overwhelmed.
