Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic, with over one billion people at risk for its associated diseases

Reports are appearing in the news media more and more often about the impor- tance of Vitamin D. Increasing use of sunscreens effectively blocks the body from absorbing UVB rays, preventing the body from making its own Vitamin D. The truth is emerging: many Americans have inadequate stores of Vitamin D.

In August 2010, a landmark study reported that Vitamin D was found to influence more than 200 genes. Specifically, the research team found 2,776 binding sites for the Vitamin D receptor along the length of the genome.

Mushrooms as a source of Vitamin D2
It has long been known that edible fungi such as the white button mushroom are abundant in Vitamin D. Derived from certified-organic Agaricus bisporus mushrooms, widely known and eaten in meals, this dried flour provides superior levels of Vita- min D2. When seeking an effective, clean, and certified vegan-friendly Vitamin D2 ingredient, Vitamin D2 by Monterey Mushrooms fits. According to recent studies, Vitamin D2 has been shown to be as effective as Vitamin D3 in maintaining circulat- ing concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Further research has shown that natural forms of Vitamin D may be more effective than chemical extracts, making Monterey Mushrooms’ Vitamin D2 even more attractive. Not only is High Vitamin D Mushroom Powder an excellent source of D2, but it also provides a host of antioxidants along with riboflavin, niacin, and copper – all in a totally natural and organic product.
