Life Extension High Strength Vitamin D3 with Sea-Iodine: Vitamin D plays a major role in bone health, joint health, immune health, mood health and cardiovascular health. The two most important forms of vitamin D are cholecalciferol (D3), which is derived from our own cholesterol and ergocalciferol (D2), a plant analogue derived from the diet. The cholecalciferol supplied by the Life Extension is identical to that which is derived from cholesterol and synthesized by sunlight on the skin. Cholecalciferol Vitamin D is essential for bone growth and maintenance of bone density.
Iodine is a health-promoting trace element essential for life. Its primary biological role lies in the production of the thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland actively absorbs iodide from the blood to make and release these hormones into the blood. The classic signs of a sluggish thyroid gland include weight gain, lethargy, poor quality hair and nails, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, bad circulation and constipation.
Health-conscious people are often most likely to develop low iodine levels. One reason is that athletes and people engaged in heavy physical effort deplete their natural stores of this trace mineral through perspiration, increasing their need for it. Vegetarians also have substantially greater likelihood of low levels of iodine than carnivorous people, since foods of plant origin are less rich in iodine than animal-derived foods.
Recent research points to vitamin D3 deficiencies in the general population and to its positive benefits against cardiovascular disease, cell mutation, thyroid health, joint and bone health, anti-ageing properties and skin health. Many people suffering from anxiety and similar concerns are D3 deficient and certainly colds are more prevalent in the winter months when there is less sunshine pointing to vitamin D3's protective properties.
Vitamin D3 with Sea-Iodine provides both these vital nutrients in the convenience of just one capsule.
