Vitamin D: Get All the Benefits of the “Sunshine Vitamin”

Vitamin D: Get All the Benefits of the “Sunshine Vitamin”

Feb 20, 2020 Alex Brecher

Are you doing all you can for your weight loss and health? A tiny, but very important, nutrient may be missing, especially as winter drags on. Many people are deficient in vitamin D, especially during the winter months. Vitamin D has all sorts of benefits, and The BariatricPal Store has it in any form you could need.

Who Needs Vitamin D Supplements?

There is an excellent chance that you do, if you are a bariatric surgery patient, you live in a northern climate, you do not get much sun exposure or always wear sunblock in the sun, or you are an older adult, for starters.Vitamin D is known as the “sunshine vitamin” because your body can make it when radiation from the sun hits your skin, but the system is not adequate for many people. 

Ask your doctor if you are in a high-risk group and may needVitamin D supplements. If you are not sure, there is an easy blood test to find out your levels.

Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is necessary for so many things in the body, including for strong bones, a healthy heart, and regulating blood pressure. It supports the immune system, and deficiency is linked to higher rates for certain cancers.

Vitamin D may even be an unsung hero for weight loss. People with lower vitamin D levels tend to have a higher body weight, and people who are overweight or obese tend to have lower vitamin D levels. Don’t you want to boost your chances for weight loss success?

Any Form You Like

However you like to take your vitamins, there is a form ofVitamin D that works for you. We haveVitamin D in capsules, liquid, great-tasting chewables, quick melts, and even gummies. Flavors include Orange and Lemon. Vitamin D also comes in chews with calcium, in delicious, sugar-free flavors such as Chocolate and Caramel. If you do not want to swallow any more supplements, you can always try a topical vitamin patch.

What you eat and how much you exercise are the major players as you keep working hard to lose weight and be healthy, but the vitamins and minerals you get are important, too. The BariatricPal Store hasVitamin D and the other nutrients in stock so you can stay nourished as you lose weight.
