The Regular Girl multivitamin includes 200% of the daily value of vitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D. Why? Because this nutrient deserves your attention! Not only is Vitamin D vital for strong bones and teeth, deficiencies have been linked to other health issues. It also appears to play a role in supporting immune system health. And here’s a shocker: More than 40% of us may not be getting enough of it!
Shining the spotlight on the ‘Sunshine Vitamin”
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans list Vitamin D as one of their four ‘nutrients of concern,” hoping to raise awareness of its importance. Often called the ‘sunshine vitamin’, vitamin D is produced by our body when we’re catching those golden rays. Unfortunately, many of us don’t make enough. Blame cloudy days, living too far from the equator, spending too much time inside and even wearing sunscreen. That’s why adding vitamin D to your diet by taking supplements or eating vitamin D-rich foods is so important.
By the way, dietary fiber is another nutrient of concern. Most Americans get far less than we need which is why supplements such as our Regular Girl Prebiotic Fiber and Probiotic blend are so important.
Signs of a Vitamin D deficiency may be subtle
Some of us may experience muscle weakness and bone pain if we don’t get enough of vitamin D. Others may have little or no symptoms. It’s always smart to check with your healthcare provider if you’re curious about your need for supplementation. While uncommon, it is possible to get too much of this fat-soluble vitamin.
Vitamin D and overall wellness
Vitamin D supports your health in many ways. You may remember from elementary school that this nutrient supports healthy bone growth.* That’s why it’s often added to milk and other kid-friendly foods. Vitamin D has also been shown to help regulate the immune response.*
Vitamin D isn’t the only Regular Girl Multivitamin nutrient that’s been shown to support the immune system. Our Multi also contains 200% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin C and 100% of zinc. Both of these good guys are known to help support the immune system.* Your gut health affects your immune system, too.
