Earthlight is produced from mushrooms via a patented (U.S. Patent #8,545,915) process, by exposing these mushrooms to light. Much like the human body, mushrooms produce Vitamin D when exposed to UV light. Earthlight is a whole food ingredient that is minimally processed without any extract solvents. Earthlight Whole Food Vitamin D has received approval of its Food Additive Petition from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Earthlight is simultaneously plant-based, non-GMO, Organic, Made in the USA and a whole food supplement!
Vitamin D is a vital nutrient that has been linked to almost every health condition under the sun, from bone and muscle health, to brain health, pregnancy, immune activity, cardiovascular functions and more. In contrast, vitamin D deficiency can lead to significant health consequences, and it’s estimated that 42% of American adults are deficient. Vitamin D can act as an antioxidant, regulate immune activity, support cardiovascular health, modulate blood sugar balance, regulate neurotransmitter synthesis and more. Historically, the consequences of chronic vitamin D deficiency have been on full display in cases of rickets, a skeletal disorder that results in weakening and distortion of bone growth in children without food sources of vitamin D and low sun exposure. Vitamin D deficiency also affects adults, as evidenced by an increased risk in certain types of fractures and forms of muscles weakness. Vitamin D substantially affects the brain and nervous systems. Studies have shown that supplemental vitamin D may enhance mood during the winter season when vitamin D synthesis from the sun is extremely low. In addition, research suggests that low vitamin D levels may be associated with increased sleepiness and sleep difficulties. Vitamin D has also been shown to decrease the risk of exacerbation of chronic respiratory issues and their symptoms.
