Vitamin D is best known for supporting calcium absorption to promote strong bones, but the benefits do not stop there. Unfortunately, about a quarter of adults are at risk for low levels.
Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” because exposure of your skin to sunlight triggers your body to make the active form, but the name is a little misleading. Unless you live in a latitude below 37 degrees – which passes through California, Missouri, and Virginia – the sun’s rays do not provide enough energy to support the process.
What about getting your vitamin D from food? You can, but you may be getting less you would expect, even with an otherwise adequate diet. Vitamin D’s best natural source is fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines. There is some in eggs, but you would have to eat about 20 eggs each day to meet your requirements!
PatchAid Vitamin D3 contains vitamin D3, which is the active form of the vitamin in your body. Ours is derived from algae and therefore vegan. The patch offers:
- Vitamin D without harmful UV exposure.
- Bone nutrients Vitamin K2 and Magnesium.
- The active form of vitamin D.
- Select an area of skin. The patch will stick better if you choose an area of skin without hair, lotion, or oil residues such as your shoulder, back, or hip. Clean and dry the skin.
- Remove the patch from the release liner.
- Adhere the patch to your skin, pressing firmly.
- For best results, it is recommended to wear PatchAid patches for 8 hours. There is no additional benefit wearing the patch longer than 8 hours.
