Since we were just stuck in a typhoon in Okinawa for 2 days I thought about how important sunlight is for our bodies and how not getting enough vitamin D affects you. I have always given vitamin D3 to my family. Vitamin D3 is needed for so many things in your body including bone health, brain function, hormones, pain, depression, and immunity – just to name a few. When I find that my family isn’t getting enough vitamin D3 I use a product that I like to call Liquid Sunshine.
I found out vitamin K2 helps in absorption of vitamin D3. So I had to change the brand of vitamin D3 I was using in order to get the vitamin K2. I went through quite a few different brands, I used a couple sublingual (given under the tongue) brands, but then my aunt, who is a nurse practitioner and runs her own health and wellness practice, recommended the brand I use now.
I use Ortho Molecular Products Vitamin D3 with K2 Liquid and it is wonderful. It is a liquid so it is easy to use and take. I manage my dose and give it to the whole family; we call it “Liquid Sunshine” in our house. I try to use it everyday, but especially on days that the weather is bad or we are not able to get outside enough. I am a strong believer in getting your vitamins naturally when possible, but getting enough sunlight is hard for most people due to spending our days indoors and our compulsive use of sun screen.
I can really tell the difference in my family when we are taking it. I give my husband and I 10 drops and all 3 kids get 5 drops each (per recommendation of my Aunt). There is no taste so no one minds taking it. I love this product and highly recommend it for anyone.
