Did You Know?
Vitamin D is produced by our bodies when the skin is exposed to sunlight, but most individuals lack frequent sun exposure. For your body to absorb adequate amounts of vitamin D, a sufficient amount of skin needs to be exposed. This would require a specific type of clothing, such as a tank top or swimsuit. Because of this, at least 41% of the United States is deficient in vitamin D, making supplementation extremely important. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a weakened immune system, heart disease, and more. Our MaxLiving Vitamin D3 + Probiotics contains 5,000 IU of vitamin D3, providing high doses of vitamin D3 in its most natural form.
Along with Vitamin D, probiotics populate our gut with good bacteria, which is critical to the immune system. In fact, over 70% of the immune system is housed in the gut.
Typically vitamin D and probiotics are sold separately, but MaxLiving Vitamin D3 + Probiotics delivers high-dose vitamin D3, along with four probiotic strains, in one convenient capsule.

Vitamin D Perspective
Vitamin D, sometimes referred to as the “sunshine vitamin”, is an essential, fat-soluble vitamin. (1) Vitamin D is essential for optimal health of many functions in the body. These functions include healthy bones and teeth, a strong immune system, and a healthy mindset. (2)
Due to the fact that vitamin D is not commonly in food, vitamin D supplementation has been shown to be extremely beneficial. Additionally, certain nutrition and lifestyle factors can help contribute to proper vitamin D levels.
