Vitamin D Injection Therapy for Athletes

injection therapy for athletesSince 1927, athletes have been targeting their vitamin D intake to try to improve their health and body performance. Vitamin D injection therapy for athletes is the best way to deliver Vitamin D to your system, second only to the Sun, but it’s a lot more comfortable than getting it from the sun. Even here in Arizona, Vitamin D deficiency is very common. How is that possible? It takes about 30 minutes of direct sunlight between 10am – 3pm WITHOUT SUNSCREEN! I can’t imagine why that’s hard for us. Also, the higher your skin’s level of melanin (the darker your skin is) the longer you need to be in direct sunlight, up to twice as long.

What do I mean direct sunlight? Tanning beds don’t count and neither do corner offices because UVB rays don’t travel through glass. Is it any wonder why so many people are struggling with insufficient vitamin D? This lack leads to:

  • Risk of developing cancer
  • Depression
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s
  • Diabetes
  • Low blood pressure
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • MS
  • Low energy

All of these can be improved by supplementing our bodies with vitamin D. In addition, for people dieting and trying to lose weight, as well as those who are working out and trying to improve their strength or stamina; vitamin D can speed up your results.

The recommend daily intake is 1,000 IU – 5,000 IU per day, which is very technical but can be achieved by a half hour of direct sunlight, or more.

In Arizona, the idea of standing around in the sun for 30-90 minutes, gathering up the sunlight, with or without sunscreen is almost laughably absurd. It can be done on occasion, early in the morning or late in the evening, but it isn’t comfortable, and it’s still possible to get a sunburn from it. Worse, there is so much we would rather be doing or need to be doing in that time, that it almost never happens. It isn’t just in Arizona that people struggle with Vitamin D deficiency, it’s practically a worldwide struggle. It doesn’t need to be, our bodies can either produce it on their own, in direct sunlight, or we can take a supplement.

Our supplement, vitamin D Injection Therapy, is the fastest and most effective ways to boost your vitamin D level. The immediate and long-term benefits of this therapy are staggering, boosting your energy, immunity and preventing maladies from depression to Alzheimer’s and even cancer.
