WHERE DOES VITAMIN D3 COME FROM?
This one may actually surprise you, as it did me! According to the New England Journal of Medicine, only about 10% of vitamin D comes from our food we eat and the remaining 90% we actually receive from sun exposure! Yes- that's really true...we shouldn't completely avoid the sun. Now of course I say that with caution, as myself avoid it quite often as I am very fair-skinned with plenty of freckles as well! I also get sunburned very easily which is another reason I don't go out in the sun probably as much as I should.
THE TOP 7 REASONS

BONUS PRODUCT REVIEW:
MAXASORB VITAMIN D3 CREAM $19.95*
The product was just what I've come to expect from Vita Sciences- fantastic quality and a great product. I wanted to add this supplement to my diet, but I also know that it tends to not be easily absorbed by pill form and can leave some people with an upset stomach. I knew this was me as I've taken the supplement in the past, so I decided this was definitely a better option! This product is super easy for anyone to manage and just takes 1 full pump to dispense the dosage and this can be done up to twice daily.
I chose to put the lotion on the backs of my wrists and rubbed them together, but you can really put the product anywhere on the skin! It does take about 5-7 minutes to fully absorb and dry which is why I'd advise to not put this on before you are right about to head out somewhere for example, unless you have a few minutes to let it absorb. However, it doesn't stain and a rubs into the skin fairly easily. The pump bottle is well-designed and will dispense the correct amount of product with no issues. There are 60 total doses too and that makes it a fairly decent buy as it's under $20 at their site :)
The dosage gives you 1,000 IU of D3 and this can be given to children too; I LOVED this feature as it's something that the whole family can use and you probably won't get many if any complaints at all! I would highly recommend this product to anyone- even those that may have issues with application of supplements directly to the skin. This product has NO smell at all and no dyes so your looking at something that will even work for those with higher skin sensitivity :)
