Vitamin D & Me… Karen talks to her vitamins

For those of you that know, you know that besides losing weight there are other things I want to lose.  I’d like to lose the aches in my hips and knees when I walk up and down the stairs, and I’d like to lose my fear that if I do fall, I won’t bounce back like the 20 year old I think I am… being over 50 can be fun, provided you don’t fall, right?

So yesterday while I was waiting for the prescription toothpaste my kids with braces use, I was struck by a bright yellow bottle that read: Sunshine in a Caplet.

Captivated (as I usually am by shiny bright things) I took a closer look.  It was Vitamin D-3 with Vitamin C.  Not only did this little bottle boast “the most bioavailable form” but it listed the following traits:

  • Promotes Healthy Bones & Joints
  • Supports Colon Health
  • Supports Positive Mood
  • Supports Immunity

And because I’m a sucker for this type of advertising, (and because I had the $10 burning a hole in my pocket) I picked it up.

Now, I’m not a doctor and I wouldn’t pretend to be a doctor or even suggest this is advice, I’m just telling you my experience.

I LOVE these things.  Whether it is chance, luck or the Sunshine in a Caplet, I have managed to dodge the cold that is wreaking havoc in my office.  AND whether it is my imagination or I was actually low on Vitamin D… my hip pain has subsided.   I am very hesitant to say, “Disappeared” because I really don’t know what causes it, and what relieves it.  I will say that Advil, does not help.  I have thought at times, that changing my shoes helps… so, until I am pain free for a long period of time I will not announce… Pain is Gone… I will say for now… (hedging my bets) that it has subsided.

Because I’m responsible for my health, I didn’t just willy nilly decide to take Vitamin D,  I read some research online and I contacted my Dr.’s office to ask if there was any problem taking Vitamin D.  In fact, she told me that, “You need to take Vitamin D, I think I suggested that the last time you were in”  So, there you have it.  Turns out that I should probably start looking for something to help with my memory too!

So, me and my bottle of Sunshine Caplets are happily making our way through the winter.
