Research is pointing to
more and more people suffering the consequences of vitamin D deficiency
including susceptibility to serious illnesses like MS (Multiple

Vitamin D Synergy contains 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 as Cholecalciferol and 200 mcg of vitamin K as Phytonadione (included to prevent calcification of the arteries).

Why is vitamin D deficiency on the rise?
people are avoiding sun exposure due to fear of ozone layer problems,
or because of skin cancer or concern of skin wrinkling. Twenty minutes
of sun exposure daily to 6% exposed skin is necessary for maintaining
our body?s own production of vitamin D. Some drugs bind fats, including
fat soluble Vitamin D and contribute to low vitamin D levels. These
drugs include Cholestyramine, a bile acid sequestering medication, and
laxatives. Intake of Olestra and soluble fiber can also potentially
reduce vitamin D absorption from food. Statin drugs can cause
cholesterol levels to fall lower than ideal which may contribute to
vitamin D deficiency. Patients with fat malabsorption, problems with
bile production or production of lipase for digesting fats are also
susceptible to low vitamin D levels. For these individuals consider LV-GB (liver-gallbladder support formula) and/or Digestzymes
(digestive support formula containing Lipase enzyme). Patients with
dark skin pigmentation or a dark tan may require up to four times
longer sun exposure to absorb the same amount of UVB as light or
untanned skin, because melanin blocks UVB. African descent individuals
have a much higher incidence of vitamin D deficiency, especially in
northern states. Obese individuals can have 50% lower plasma levels of
vit D than normal weight people, for the same supplementation levels or
sun exposure. Women with low hormone levels are more susceptible to
vitamin D deficiency. Estrogen or progesterone deficiency (amenorrhea,
surgical or age-onset menopause) impairs the formation of the active
form of vit D. Aging skin has a reduced capacity of vitamin D
synthesis. By age 75, vitamin D levels can be 25% lower than levels in
younger individuals.
