Vitamin D3 and CBD - The Best Combination?
What is Vitamin D3?
While you may be aware that Vitamin D, otherwise known as the Sunshine vitamin, is a fairly common essential nutrient that we absorb through sunlight… What you might not know is that this means it is completely different to other essential vitamins/nutrients. You may also not know that using the sun as your main source of Vitamin D is not always sustainable as short days and dark winters don’t provide adequate levels of the vitamin that you need to promote a healthy, vitamin-D-rich lifestyle. Vitamin D is a really important vitamin that helps to promote the absorption of calcium while it aids bone growth and helps to boost the immune system. When we expose ourselves to sunlight, our skin naturally produces Vitamin D. It’s important to ensure that we consume enough Vitamin D as this will help to prevent deficiency.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the leaf, stalk and flower of the hemp plant. It is just one of over 110 cannabinoids found in the plant however CBD has been the one to capture the headlines. It offers a wide variety of potential therapeutic benefits for a large number of diseases and conditions without providing you with the psychotropic effects, otherwise known as the ‘the high’, when consuming THC.

Where Can You Find Vitamin D3?
Many people think that Vitamin D3 is the same as Vitamin D but this is not the case. Vitamin D is made up of two forms and these are known as Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. In our case, Vitamin D3 is derived from animals. Therefore, it means that you will only ever find it in animal-sourced foods. This will include the likes of oily fish and fish oil, liver, egg yolk and butter.
However, it is also formed in your skin when you are exposed to sunlight, so, the more time you spend in sunlight, the better it will be for your body (within means) when producing Vitamin D3.
The Benefits of Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 comes with several benefits as it can help to reduce the risk of diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, heart disease and even the flu while it has also been suggested that it can help to reduce the potential of catching Covid-19.
