Experts are estimating that between 70 and 90% of North Americans have Vitamin D deficiency. Without enough Vitamin D, there is less calcium circulating in the blood. As a result, the body ultimately begins taking calcium it needs from the bones which in turn makes them brittle. Vitamin D with Calcium provides a positive health benefit to people of all ages.

Known as the “sunshine vitamin”, the body activates Vitamin D through reactions driven by skin’s exposure to the sun. The nutrient is actually only found in select food sources such as cod liver oil, salmon, tuna fish, eggs and liver. The avoidance of sun exposure due to skin cancer puts people at risk for Vitamin D deficiency.

When applied as a supplement with the Vitamin D, Calcium helps promote healthy bone growth and maintenance. By combining Calcium with our cutting edge delivery system, Patch MD provides the natural benefits without the burden of ingestion. Through the process of real absorption, the Calcium and the Vitamin D are allowed to take full effect and to work as needed. The Vitamin D/Calcium Topical Patch is a safe, effective and inexpensive alternative to the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet rays.

The Vitamin D council states that 20-30 minutes of summer sun exposure allows the skin to produce approximately 10,000 IU of Vitamin D. Several factors make relying on sun exposure for Vitamin D production challenging. The amount can change depending on geographic location, season, time of day, pollution and age. With all of these considerations it becomes clear that transitioning to a new and improved supplementation of Vitamin D needs makes sense. This is where out cutting edge Patch Technology comes into play, providing you with the Vitamin D and Calcium your body needs without the risk.

Some of the most devastating and widespread diseases in existence today are linked with Vitamin D deficiency. Diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and osteoporosis. In just the first three months of 2010, a study of 520,000 subjects of Western Europe with the highest level of serum Vitamin D showed 40% decrease in colorectal cancer compared to the lowest levels.

Another study clinically validated bone health when Vitamin D is taken in conjunction with calcium. When women aged 65-71 received 800 IU of daily vitamin D3 and 1000 mg of calcium for three years, results showed positive effects in the skeleton of ambulatory, postmenopausal women as compared to a no supplement or placebo control group. Vitamin D is not a miracle fix for all disease, but rather an indispensable part of overall health and well-being. Patch MD is focused on providing you with a safe and secure delivery system for your body’s Vitamin D and Calcium needs.
