Take Vitamin D for Your Beauty and Health
Living in the DMV, debate is not foreign to this area. So when my lawyer boyfriend tried to debate me on whether I should get a medical exam to make sure all my vitamin and iron levels were at the appropriate amounts, he unsurprisingly won. I caved in and got my vitamin levels checked. It turns out that my vitamin D levels were extremely low, and I was instructed by my doctor to start incorporating it into my daily vitamin routine.
Low vitamin D levels contribute to aches in your bones, hair loss and extremely frizzy hair, along with losing hair on your eyebrows. Low vitamin D levels have also been linked with clinical depression, which is a persistent depression that lasts for more than two months, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. When clinically depressed, one experiences changes in their emotions, perspective on life and behaviors, along with fatigue and loss of energy.
My very patient boyfriend had noticed that instead of being my usual self with only my mentstrual mood changes, that my energy levels and how I viewed myself had started to reach an all-time low. What good are all the wonderful makeup and beauty products I get to talk about with you if they are not helping me to feel more confident as a women by wearing them? All the symptoms I had been experiencing from low vitamin D levels started to make sense.
Vitamin D can be absorbed through sunlight and foods, and it is actually often referred to as the sunshine vitamin. When Instavit reached out to me with its Vitamin D Oral Spray formula that is sprayed into your mouth without the need to use any water, I was impressed. My body does not absorb pills well, so this new product was just what I needed. Instavit’s Vitamin D spray contains 28 doses in each bottle with no sugar or calories. The line was created by Dr. Jatin Joshi, who wanted an easy and portable way to take his vitamins. Instavit is offering 20 percent off the purchase of Vitamin D Oral Spray on their website with code SUMMER, however you can also find it at The Vitamin Shoppe or on Amazon.
I started using the spray, and it is easy to remember to take it throughout the day. I already feel better about myself knowing that I am giving my body the vitamin D levels that it is lacking. Outward beauty is important for a woman to feel great about herself and to get a boost of confidence when that Powerpoint presentation has to be given in front of the entire office. But if you are experiencing clinical depression or noticing the symptoms of frizzy hair and aching bones, you still will not feel as truly beautiful as you are on the outside when your insides are not healthy.
It would be wise to check your vitamin levels and see what you might be lacking.
