Congratulations on taking a positive step in your health.
Vitamin D3 supplementation is extremely important for those who are vitamin D3 deficient or who are at high risk of becoming deficient.
As scientists continue to discover the detrimental effect that vitamin D3 deficiency can have on our health such as increasing the risk of chronic diseases, taking a vitamin D3 supplement is a simple way in which you can reduce your risk of developing these diseases.
Maintaining your D3 levels is important.
For the many Australians who are low in vitamin D3, the detrimental effects of a deficiency are often not immediately felt. For this reason, you may feel that it is okay to stop taking your vitamin D3 supplement after a while. However, it is important that you continue to keep up your supplementation unless you have been advised otherwise by your healthcare professional. Keeping up your supplementation will ensure that your vitamin D3 levels remain stable and that you reduce your risk of many chronic diseases.
Keeping track of your D3 levels.
It is also important to ensure that your vitamin D3 levels remain stable while you are taking your D3 supplement. Check in with your health professional on a regular basis to see how you are tracking.
