Want Healthier Bones? Increase your Vitamin D!

Want Healthier Bones? Increase your Vitamin D!

Our bones are our body’s protector. They provide structure and shield our organs from harm.  Our bones are also where we store our calcium. When they detect our body needs calcium they release it into our bloodstream.  The amounts of calcium and vitamin D you intake into your body directly affect how much calcium your bones will store.

It makes sense that a recent study showed how significant Vitamin D is in maintaining good bone health.

This 2019 study consisted of 1,348 Australian women aged 70 to 85 (a population more prone to osteoporosis and bone fractures). The results showed that bone mineral density (a measure of bone quality) was higher with increased Vitamin D levels.  In addition to this, as the participants’ Vitamin D levels increased, their risk of fracture related hospitalization decreased.

If you don’t know your Vitamin D levels and you’re worried about your bone health, you can purchase a testing kit here.

Vitamin D and Your Allergies

"Vitamin D And Your Allergies"

 

If you feel like you always have a runny nose and watery eyes, you might be suffering from allergic rhinitis (also known as hay fever).  Hay fever is caused by dust mites, pollen, or pet dander allergens and can be triggered both indoors and outdoors. Hay fever affects between 10% and 30% of the worldwide population.

Since hay fever is so widespread, shouldn’t there be a way to prevent it?

A recent study shows that there is!

German researchers studied 80 adults with both hay fever and Vitamin D deficiencies. The researchers blindly administered 40 adults with allergy medication, and the other 40 adults with allergy medication and Vitamin D. The adults who received just the allergy medication showed an 8% reduction in allergy symptoms after 8 weekly treatments. The adults who received the medication in addition to the Vitamin D showed an astounding 29% reduction in allergy symptoms.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, raising your Vitamin D levels through supplements or our Vitamin D Sunlamp can be an effective preventative measure for the symptoms of hay fever.

If you’d like to test your Vitamin D levels, you can purchase a testing kit here.

Can Higher Vitamin D Levels Better Your Mental Health?

Vitamin D is proven to help you build strong bones, but can it help you build a strong mind?

Studies say yes!

43.8 million American adults experience mental illness in a given year, and chances are you or a loved one are a part of that group.

A 2017 study measured the emotional health, self-perceived mental health, self-perceived general health, and self-perceived stress of more than 7,500 Canadians. The end result of the study was a positive association between good mental health and high Vitamin D levels.

If you’re ever wondering why we’re so passionate about Vitamin D, this is why!

If you’re wondering what your Vitamin D levels are but want to avoid a trip to the doctor, you can purchase a Vitamin D test here!

If you want to raise or maintain your Vitamin D levels, our Sperti Vitamin D Lamp can help the natural way!

Sales Tax

When you place an order on Sperti.com, you will not be charged any type of sales tax unless you are located in the same state as our facility – Nevada. Anyone that orders in the other 49 US states will not be charged any type of tax, so the unit’s listed price is all you will pay. If you are in Nevada, the taxes will automatically be added to your order and will be based on the current sales tax rate.

For orders placed outside of the US, there will be duties and taxes that must be paid before receiving your shipment. We offer the option to pay all shipping fees during checkout so that your order can be delivered to you quickly and without any delays. If you choose to pay the duties and taxes when the lamp arrives to you, it may take a little longer to receive it. Since the international fees are still due, they cannot leave the package at your door. If you are not home when the carrier attempts to deliver the package, they will take it back to their facility and you will need to go pick it up. Once you go and pay all of the fees, they will then give you the package(s) containing your order. All of the fees will be the cost same amount whether you pay them at the time of ordering or when the lamp arrives in your country, so it is up to you to decide when you want to pay them.

Vitamin D’s Effect on Teeth

While Vitamin D is important for your body’s overall health, you may not know that it can have an impact on your teeth as well. One of the most important things that Vitamin D does is help your body absorb calcium. Without calcium, we can develop weak or brittle bones which can eventually lead to more dangerous health problems. Since teeth are composed with calcium, they could also become weak and decay without Vitamin D.

Keeping your Vitamin D levels high is the key to a bright and healthy smile. Not only is it crucial for adults but children as well. Someone may believe that since a child will eventually lose their baby teeth, it is not as important to keep them strong but that is not the case. When a child develops weak or damaged teeth, they can gradually get shift and cause damage to the gums and nerves. If a child does not take care of their teeth, it can lead to permanent damage to their mouth as an adult.

While it may seem silly, Vitamin D is actually crucial factor in maintaining a healthy body, smile and life.

Yes, these are expensive sunlamps so naturally shoppers doing their due diligence want to know the answer to: “What if it breaks?” (see above). These well-built sunlamps have only one moving part – the timer dial which is very basic and never breaks. The bulbs are professionally made and won’t lose their seal or break unless dropped, smashed, etc.. These are very reliable sunlamps built to last many years.

Vitamin D and Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is a malfunction of the neurons in the brain which causes loss of memory and disorientation and unfortunately it eventually leads to death. It is actually the 6th leading cause of death in the US, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. While it is not completely preventable or curable, there are things we can do to help keep our minds healthy for as long as possible.

Work performed in the lab of Mathew Mizwicki, PhD (Assistant Researcher at UCLA) found that vitamin D in the circulatory system may have the power to heal parts of the brain. Based on their findings, vitamin D can help slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and may even be able to prevent it all together. These discoveries are going to have a huge impact on the future of this disease.

Mathew Mizwicki, PhD did a Grassroots Health webinar where he explained the power of vitamin D and how it could have an impact on Alzheimer’s disease. View the full webinar here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djvE9mhIjUI

Sunlamp Storage

Whether you only need to use your sunlamp during certain months of the year or maybe you’re planning to go away on vacation, it’s important to have a safe place to store your lamp when you aren’t using it. In order to keep your sunlamp just like new, keeping it safe and clean is very important. Here are some helpful tips to insure you are properly caring for your sunlamp.

  1. ALWAYS make sure that the cord is unplugged from the power outlet after each use.
  2. Do not keep the lamp in any wet or damp areas.
  3. Don’t set the lamp up near any heated surfaces or in direct sunlight.
  4. Avoid having the device in any extreme temperatures.
  5. From time to time, use a lightly damp towel or sanitary wipe to clean the outer shell of the device. Make sure you do not get any moisture near the sockets where the bulbs or cord attach.
  6. After use, allow the lamp at least 15 minutes to cool down before putting it away.
  7. Store the lamp in an area that cool and dry.
  8. Cover the lamp with something (towel, sheet, etc.) in order to protect it from dust, bugs or anything else that could get into the sockets and/or wiring.
  9. Make sure to keep the lamp in an area where it won’t get knocked over or damaged.

Following these easy steps will insure that your sunlamp will have a long lifespan. If you have any questions about caring for your sunlamp, you can call our office at: 800-544-3757
