Coral LLC® Coral Daily Vitamin D3 - Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.  These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

A few months ago I had labs done.  Everything came back fine, with the exception of my Vitamin D levels.  They were extremely low.  The doctor prescribed me a high dosage of Vitamin D to be taken once weekly.  After completion of the pills, I had labs done again and the numbers were back in the normal range.  Although I was in the clear, the doctor still recommended that I take daily OTC Vitamin D pills.  

As summer comes to a close, it’s a common misconception that the sunny season has provided the Vitamin D requirements for maintaining strong bones and good overall health.
While those long beach days and outdoor adventures no doubt increase sun exposure—and thus Vitamin D production—factors including where one lives, the time of exposure, skin color, the amount of skin exposed, sunscreen, and more, can affect just how much of the “sunshine vitamin” is produced.

Recent research shows that about 42 percent of Americans are Vitamin D deficient, which is why taking a Vitamin D supplement like Coral LLC Coral Daily Vitamin D3 is recommended all year long—no matter the season.  I read the research article, published by Prevention, and was kind of surprised at the health risks associated with low Vitamin D.  Knowing that I've already had low levels once, I'm going to make it a point to take a Vitamin D supplement daily from here on out.  I've been taking the Coral LLC Coral Daily Vitamin D3 because it delivers daily value requirements, plus calcium and other minerals essential to good health.

   Coral Daily Vitamin D3 provides 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3, which is the type of Vitamin D recommended by the Vitamin D Council, and 100 mg of coral calcium, an important partner in support of strong bones. Additionally, the supplement includes 73 other trace minerals derived from above-sea, EcoSafe coral.

   Coral Daily Vitamin D3 is offered in a container of 100 easy-to-swallow, veggie capsules.  It is recommended to take one pill a day.  

   Coral LLC, the leading brand of coral minerals, is one of the original coral calcium mineral companies in the U.S., using only EcoSafe above-sea coral in its products.

Being deficient in vitamin D can lead to many chronic diseases, including breast cancer. Nearly every cell in your body has a vitamin D cell receptor and not getting enough of this vitamin can cause a lot of health problems. If you can't sun bathe outside twice a week for 20 minutes, then a good quality vitamin D supplement that is at least 5,000 IU taken once or twice a week will work just fine.

Very informative post, thank you so much for sharing! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and can definitely feel a difference when I am not getting enough vitamin D, especially in my mood.
