Vitamin D is a crucial nutrient that plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy body. This fat-soluble vitamin promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphate, leading to improved bone health and a stronger immune system. Vitamin D is available in two forms: ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) found in plants and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) which is produced in our skin after exposure to sunlight.
Despite its importance, research shows that 1 in 4 individuals in our country are deficient in vitamin D. This is why at AD Precision Health, we offer vitamin D supplementation options to help you reach your recommended daily allowance.
Here are just some of the
many benefits of Vitamin D:
If you find it difficult to get the necessary amount of vitamin D from dietary sources or sun exposure, vitamin D supplementation may be the best option for you. You can choose from a vitamin D supplement or vitamin D injections. The treatment usually includes three intramuscular injections per year, with each injection consisting of 300,000 IU of vitamin D3.
The effects of vitamin D from a single injection are often greater than oral vitamin D supplements, especially for individuals with severe vitamin D deficiency. At AD Precision Health, we recommend vitamin D injections to individuals with dark skin, those suffering from kidney problems, or those with poor intestinal absorption who struggle to get enough vitamin D from their diet.
