Description of Product: “This summer, many women are shielding themselves from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays by using sunscreen and wearing hats, but this blocks the body from absorbing the sunlight necessary to produce vitamin D. Leading experts believe up to 77 percent of Americans have insufficient levels of vitamin D, thus increasing their risk for falls and fractures.
Four things you need to know:
· The primary source for vitamin D is direct exposure to sunlight.
· As the body ages, it becomes less efficient at producing Vitamin D from the sun.
· Rather than increasing sun exposure, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends people obtain vitamin D through adequate diet or supplements.
· Caltrate now has double the amount of vitamin D, making it the most vitamin D rich supplement available.”

Review of Product: My Vitamin D tends to be a little low, I am not an outdoor kind of girl even living here in south Florida. So I take calcium regularly because I’m supposed to and recently dded some Vitamin D to the mix – so these are the perfect pill for me! I haven’t had any side effects, no nausea or anything you get when you add something new to your routine. I don’t mind them at all and am happy to take 1 pill instead of 2 to gt the same vitamins!
Giveaway: The folks at Caltrate have graciously decided to give one (1) lucky Nicole’s Nickels reader some Caltrate Vitamin D!
