Our bodies are designed to synthesize vitamin D from exposure to UVB light emitted by the sun (or SOLIUS). Because the body makes vitamin D naturally, by definition it is a hormone, not a nutrient. The body has a built-in feedback system that allows for regulated production of vitamin D. Many essential hormones and peptides are produced in the body when the skin is exposed to UV light. In comparison, just 2 are available when oral vitamin D is ingested. In addition, our bodies process vitamin D from food or supplements in an entirely different manner and for many, this can cause imbalances leading to serious health issues. Vitamin D from oral supplementation bypasses the body’s built-in feedback mechanisms which provide protection against toxicity. If you are currently taking oral supplements to treat or prevent vitamin D deficiency and would like to switch to SOLIUS, consult your doctor to discuss a transition that will work best for you.
