What are Vitamin D Drops and how can they help my Vitamin D deficiency?
D3 (also known as cholealciferol) is a liquid form of Vitamin D that the body manufactures when skin is exposed to the sun. Each serving of Ageless Cures Vitamin D Drops contains 5000 IU of Vitamin D3 suspended in ActivAloe® pure aloe vera juice, which studies show is the minimum recommended for those suffering from a Vitamin D deficiency or chronic fatigue syndrome.
Ageless Cures Vitamin D Drops are the best way to take Vitamin D because they are easily absorbed under the tongue and can also easily be added to juices and smoothies. They are also ideal for children, those who cannot swallow pills, and those who don’t want to increase the number of pills they take each day.
Vitamin D3 is a traditional bone builder and also provides immune support, cardiovascular protection and maintains healthy aging. Vitamin D3 is also believed to play a role in boosting immune response, possibly reducing the risk of proliferation of cells and other auto-immune diseases, increasing neuromuscular function, improving mood and symptoms of depression, and potentially reducing pain.
The best time to take Vitamin D
Given that Vitamin D benefits include improving mood and reducing symptoms of depression, it is best taken in the morning in order to maximize benefit throughout the day. Vitamin D is fat soluble, so it is recommended to take it with breakfast.
The Relationship Between Calcium and Vitamin D
Our bodies can make vitamin D from the sun, but in some climates, winter sun is insufficient for vitamin D synthesis up to 6 months of the year. Even in sunny climates such as Florida, studies have shown that up to 40% of the elderly population are vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D3 acts as a vitamin when it binds with calcium for proper absorption. Humans cannot digest calcium without adequate amounts of Vitamin D3.

- D3 has Higher Bioavailibility than D2 – Several studies show that the natural form of Vitamin D3 outperforms D2 in long term Vitamin D levels and bioavailibility. This is particularly true as we age and our ability to metabolize D2 is dramatically reduced. Vitamin D3 metabolism remains unaffected by age.
- UCLA scientists and the Human BioMolecular Research Institute have found that a form of vitamin D, together with curcumin, may help stimulate the immune system to clear the brain of amyloid beta, which forms the plaques considered the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
- “We hope that Vitamin D3 and Curcumin, both naturally occurring nutrients, may offer new preventive and treatment possibilities for Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Milan Fiala, study author and a researcher at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.
Holistic Health Tip:Vitamin D and Curcumin have several similar benefits. Both are powerful antioxidants, anti inflammatories and boost immune systems. Taking both Vitamin D and curcumin supplements will build a strong foundation for your wellness regimen.
