Favorite Product Friday {Vita D3}

Actually doing it and on Friday none the less, progress I tell you!

I feel like you have to be living under a rock to not have heard all of the recent press on Vitamin D. It is EVERYWHERE! It wards off colds, keeps up your mood, and can lower your cholesterol. Looking for some more information on what Vitamin D can do for you, check out this post, done by a friend recently on the subject.

So we understand we SHOULD take it, but HOW MUCH is the question right? Generally speaking 1000 IU's doesn't cut it, but all to often that is the recommended amount. Your needs also change depending on where you live, how much time you are outside, and the season.

There is a nifty little quiz here to tell you how much you need to take. This is not "therapeutic dosing". This is just the baseline amount you personally should be taking. Don't worry it is only like 5 questions long, and you don't have to register or enter any personal information!
Why D3 you ask? It is what we can absorb, most(but not all!) D supplements are D3, but if it doesn't say, there is a good chance it is not! As always, all proceeds from our Shaklee Shop, go directly to Malot's Hope {Adoption Fund}!
Happy Friday!
