Would you believe that a majority of American adults are considered deficient in vitamin D? Studies of pandemic cases have shown that those who experienced the strongest symptoms had low vitamin D levels. In light of the encouragement to boost our levels, I’d like to clarify how to maximize your vitamin D benefits.
How to Maximize Your Vitamin D Benefits
Vitamin D is considered by many to be both hormone and vitamin with a wide variety of benefits, including:
- Aiding in Calcium absorption in bones
- Supports the immune system
- Promotes cardiovascular health
- Supports health cell replication
- Helps manage blood sugar levels
Have you had your Vitamin D levels measured recently? This serum lab test is key to knowing whether your body needs added support and can be requested from your doctor. Though reference ranges on most lab tests consider 30-100 ng/mL acceptable, the optimal level would be 40-60 ng/mL.
