“About one billion people worldwide have low blood levels of Vitamin D.”
“41.6% of adults in the United States are Vitamin D deficient. This number goes up to 69.2% in Hispanic adults and 82.1% in African American adults,” reported Healthline.
That’s about 4 out of every 10 people that have a worrisome deficiency that impacts our body’s ability to function properly!
As we learned in our first two blogs, Vitamin D has direct effects on muscle strength and the immune system. This is very exciting news, when we consider the possibility of a supplement helping with this and so many other bodily systems and functions.
But, is a supplement the safest and most efficient way to increase our Vitamin D?
The short answer is yes, IF the supplement doesn’t create toxicity in the body!
Let me explain, Vitamin D comes from three sources: food, conversion of light in the skin, and nutritional supplementation.
The active form of vitamin D is created in the liver and the kidneys. Ultraviolet B light converts Vitamin D in the skin and this is a primary source of Vitamin D for us.
Not many foods have a large amount of Vitamin D and this is why it often added to food sources.
Supplementation accounts for close to 50% of our Vitamin D.
Doctors uncover a deficiency by testing our blood levels. And because a Vitamin D deficiency can lead to many health issues, it is important to maintain proper levels.
So, how do we do that?
The RDA (recommended dietary allowances) is 600-800 IU per day. However, it’s hard to figure out how to obtain that amount, as Vitamin D is synthesized in the liver and we lose around 80% of it due to breakdown. This may be a surprise to some, so it is worth repeating:
We lose about 80% of our Vitamin D supplement in digestion!
In addition, it’s hard to measure the amount we make in the skin unless we get our levels checked daily. That being said, it becomes readily apparent that we need to get additional vitamin D and as shown above, supplementation is the route most people take.
There is a potential problem with this however, as there is with ingested CBD products. Vitamin D uses many of the same pathways CBD uses to break down in the liver. Although Vitamin D is considered safe, losing most of it through breakdown in the liver is not desirable.
Nowadays, many people are mega-dosing vitamin D on their own or under the advice of their doctors.
This wouldn’t be necessary if there was a better way to ingest Vitamin D. Plus, why throw all the Vitamin D into the liver at one time if there’s no need to?

With great excitement we announce our novel Nano Vitamin D products!
This supplement will enable people to get the vitamin D they need in a form that is safer and with much higher bioavailability than what is currently available on the market.
Healthcare providers: Please take notice of the benefits this product will have over conventional fat soluble products!
We are thrilled that our nano vitamin D sprays will revolutionize the way it’s consumed offering a safer and far more efficient way to get vital Vitamin D levels and an added bonus is – it tastes great.
We are starting with two flavors:
As always, we love hearing from you. Let us know how you are enjoying the flavors and if we should add an additional flavor to the options!
Please keep an eye open for another blog about why our nano Vitamin D is unique by using long chain fatty acids in the emulsion. We’ll discuss the medical literature covering this topic!
