Vitamin D3 + EPA
The body cannot synthesize Vitamin D3 on its own, and those who spend a lot of time indoors, who use sunscreen, or who experience harsh winters will have problems maintaining healthy D3 levels.
Vitamin D3 is needed by the body to regulate calcium and phosphorus for bones, muscles, and periodontal health. It also protects against Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) by regulating serotonin activity.
Vitamin D3 increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus needed to re-mineralize of teeth and bones. Vitamin D3 also helps to prevent weak, fragile bones (osteoporosis), and softening of bones (osteomalacia).
This particularly beneficial in terms of protecting the respiratory system by stimulating the production of cathelicidin, a protein crucial in fighting upper respiratory infections and tuberculosis.
The effects of Vitamin D have been found particularly notable in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and Type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Vitamin D deficiency is considered as a risk factor for heart attacks, congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease and fatal strokes.
The active form of Vitamin D acts as a steroid hormone by binding to the Vitamin D Receptor (VDR), found in many cells including cardiomyocytes, vascular smooth muscle and endothelium.

Maternal Vitamin D deficiency can result in multiple health issues such as problems in bone development of the fetus, increased risk of preeclampsia, increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus and increases the risk of respiratory tract infections and wheezing disorders in children.
Vitamin D has been linked to reducing risks of obesity and development of type 2 diabetes, by improving the body's sensitivity to insulin, the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels – and thus reduce the risk of insulin resistance, often the precursor to type 2 diabetes.
Healthy Vitamin D levels also help in lowering the body’s levels of cortisol, a stress hormone implicated in the storage of visceral fat, which can eventually lead to metabolic syndrome, linked to health problems such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovasular problems.
