ReD 50,000 – Vitamin D Supplementation
Read Time: 3 minutes Vitamin D plays an important role in bone and heart health, as well as general wellbeing. ReD 50,000 offers a 15-week supply of vitamin D to help people who were confirmed by lab work to have vitamin D levels less than 30 ng/ml.
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be obtained in three different ways, through diet, natural synthesis, and supplementation.
- Diet: very few foods naturally contain vitamin D. However, fatty fish like tuna and salmon are great sources. Dairy products contain some vitamin D, and some U.S. milk products are fortified to provide extra vitamin D
- Natural synthesis: the body can convert vitamin D2 to the more active D3 form naturally when exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun
- Supplementation: some people still need to take vitamin D supplements to achieve the recommended amount of vitamin D. ReD 50,000 helps people who have difficulty reaching and maintaining peak levels of vitamin D.
Vitamin D plays an important role in bone health and overall wellbeing. It promotes calcium absorption and maintains the necessary calcium and phosphate concentrations in the body to allow for bone growth and remodeling. Vitamin D has also been shown to reduce the risk of broken bones, decrease inflammation, boost immunity, and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Who Can Benefit from Supplementation?
ReD 50,000 is a once-weekly pill that is taken for 15-weeks. It helps people who have low levels of vitamin D (less than 30ng/ml) reach and maintain the ideal range. Vitamin D deficiencies usually result from inadequate dietary intake, impaired absorption, or increased excretion. These can include elderly patients with low vitamin D levels, people with vitamin D-deficient diets such as vegan diets, or people with stomach or kidney disorders who are not able to efficiently absorb the vitamin.
Without sufficient levels of vitamin D, bones can become thin and brittle, leading to osteoporosis and broken bones.
ReD 50,000 can help provide an immediate boost of vitamin D3 to help patients get the support they need. If you have low levels of vitamin D, contact your ReNue Rx pharmacist to learn more about supplements available to you.
