Vitamin D3, sometimes called the sunshine vitamin, is an essential fat-soluble vitamin produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Sadly, many people don't get a sufficient amount of vitamin D and are at risk of the negative impacts of vitamin D deficiency. At Rocky Mountain IV Medics, we offer vitamin D3 as an add-in to any of our at-home IV packages. Learn how raising your vitamin D levels safely and effectively can help you.
What Is Vitamin D3 Deficiency?
Calcitriol is the active ingredient in vitamin D. High pollution, too much sunscreen and other factors can prevent you from getting the amount of sun exposure you need, putting you at risk of vitamin D3 deficiency. When your body does not get enough calcitriol, you may experience a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Fragile or brittle bones.
- Poor digestive health.
- Weight gain.
- Sleep problems or insomnia.
- Worsening diabetes.
- Decreased mood or depression.
Vitamin D3 Benefits
At Rocky Mountain IV Medics, we offer the incredible benefits of quick and effective vitamin D3 IV therapy. We can infuse any of our IV drips with vitamin D3, introducing this essential vitamin to the body intravenously. By bypassing digestion, your body can absorb vitamin D3 at much higher concentrations.
Vitamin D3 provides incredible support for a variety of body functions. Here are some potential benefits of supplementing your diet with high doses of vitamin D3.
Facilitates Healthy Bone Growth
Calcium is unable to provide bone-strengthening benefits without vitamin D3. The sunshine vitamin promotes your body's ability to absorb calcium, ensuring normal mineralization of your bones, healthy bone growth and overall skeletal health.
Promotes Immune System Health
Vitamin D3 has incredible benefits for your immune system:
- Regulates and builds healthy immunity
- Reduces autoimmune symptoms by decreasing inflammation
- Lowers your risk of cold or flu
- Inhibits cancer cell growth, reducing your risk for cancer by helping healthy cells communicate more effectively
Provides Blood Circulation and Heart Health Benefits
Vitamin D3 may also play a role in heart health. The vitamin protects the lining of your blood vessels and reduces your risk of cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart attack and stroke.
Improves Digestive Health
One of the essential aspects of digestive health is your body's ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, zinc and iron. Vitamin D3 helps your intestines absorb these supplements, improving your digestion and diet.
Boosts Overall Mood
Low vitamin D levels are linked to depressive symptoms and other mood disorders. While research is ongoing, vitamin D3 supplements have been shown to help regulate mood and ward off depression.
Assists Weight Loss
Vitamin D deficiency is linked to obesity and weight gain. Boosting your vitamin D3 and calcium intake can help make your weight loss efforts more successful.
Offers Diabetes Support
Many diabetic patients also have low levels of vitamin D. By supplementing your vitamin D3 intake, you can potentially improve your overall diabetic symptoms.
