Candida can set up nutritional deficiencies in the people who have it. Some of the most common deficiencies are in magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-12 and vitamin D3. The importance of Vitamin D3 is becoming more and more known. Vitamin D is normally manufactured by the body when it is exposed to natural sunshine. We tend to become deficient in the cloudy months of the winter and may also not receive full benefit because of the use of sunscreen. Folks who do not drink milk (which is generally fortifies in Vitamin D) have lost another source of this important vitamin.

Vitamin D3 [Skeletal, Immune]. The body manufactures Vitamin D through sun exposure, which makes it difficult to obtain adequate amounts of vitamin D during cloudy or winter months. Vitamin D comes in two forms, D2 and D3. Of the two, D3 is more bioactive.
In the body, vitamin D is responsible for maintaining normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus and for helping to build strong bones. Vitamin D works with other vitamins, minerals and hormones to promote bone mineralization. Additionally, research shows that vitamin D may help support a healthy immune system.
NSP Vitamin D3 contains 2,000 IU natural vitamin D3 derived from lanolin harvested from the wool fat of sheep from New Zealand and Australia. These animals are certified BSE-free.
A recent report on Newsmax.com details how vitamin D can help. This PDF file referenced in a Patient Brochure, by: Stewart B. Leavitt, MA, PhD, Pain Treatment Topics, June 2008 has a great discussion about why Vitamin D3 is important in pain management.
