Your body needs Vitamin D to carry out many processes in the body properly, and we need sunlight to produce Vitamin D. The problem is, sunlight is often seasonal and in the current state of the world, has been harder to come by. Vitamin D3 by UMZU is a thoroughly research-backed blend of Vitamin D3 and coconut oil. Vitamin D3 has been used by 10,000's to build immunity, improve mood, increase strength and lengthen lifespan.
Let's bridge the gap between health and humanity
We believe in the power of the body's ability to heal the individual, and that medication and surgery should be a last resort. The products and services we provide are designed to give the body what it needs to thrive, heal and repair naturally. We do this by integrating natural health and objective, research-backed education to provide people with everything their bodies need to operate at maximum potential.
The most important step in achieving our mission is to deliver proper health and nutritional education to the public. Unfortunately, public school health education is decades behind, and medical schooling tends to avoid nutritional education in order to test the theories behind the efficacy of pharmaceuticals in isolation.
We choose our products carefully and research them thoroughly before releasing to the public. If you choose not to start your health journey with UMZU, we still encourage you to browse the educational pieces below. The more you understand about your body, the better you will be able to take control of your own health.
The Problem with Vitamin D
Did you know an estimated 41.6% of American are deficient in Vitamin D?
Here's the problem.
Vitamin D is created through sunlight exposure - and we've all been spending more time inside
Even under normal conditions, sunlight exposure is seasonal
Some parts of the world get very little sunlight year-round
Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies
Black and Hispanic populations suffer further - with 82.1% and 69.2% respectively deficient
Older adults are at a much greater risk of being deficient - and the average age is rising
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning it dissolves in fats and oils and can be stored in your body for a long time.
Two main dietary forms exist:
Vitamin D3: Found in some animal foods, like fatty fish and egg yolks
Vitamin D2: Found in some plants, mushrooms and yeasts.
Of the two, D3 is almost twice as effective at increasing blood levels of vitamin D.
Vitamin D needs to undergo two conversion steps to become active.
First, it is converted to calcidiol in your liver. This is the storage form of the vitamin.
Second, it is converted to calcitriol, mostly in your kidneys. This is the active, steroid-hormone form of Vitamin D.
What Does Vitamin D Do?
Calcitriol interacts with the vitamin D receptor, which is found in almost every single cell in your body.
When the active form of vitamin D bings to this receptor, it turns genes on or off, leading to changes in your cells.
Vitamin D affects various cells related to bone health. For example, it promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from your gut.
But scientists have recently discovered that it also plays roles in other areas of health, such as:
Longevity (longer lifespan)
Why Do You Need Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is completely different from other vitamins.
In fact, it's a steroid hormone produced from cholesterol when your skin is exposed to the sun.
For this reason, vitamin D is often referred to as "the sunshine vitamin."
However, sun exposure rarely provides adequate vitamin D, making it necessary to obtain from supplements or your diet.
Yet, only a handful of foods contain significant amounts of this crucial vitamin, so deficiency is very common.

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?
The above foods are not common in the American Diet, and if you don't eat these foods regularly, you could be suffering from a deficiency.
Here's how much Vitamin D you should be getting:
400 IU (10 mcg): infants, 0–12 months
600 IU (15 mcg): children and adults, 1–70 years old
800 IU (20 mcg): older adults and pregnant or breastfeeding women
Stacking Vitamin D with Other Nutrients
It's important to keep in mind that nutrients usually don't work in isolation.
Many of them depend on one another, and increased intake of one nutrient may increase your need for another.
Vitamin D3 can certainly be supplemented alone, but you can enhance the effects of Vitamin D3 supplementation by pairing with other nutrients, especially:
Liquid Vitamin D3 is a single-ingredient supplement, but make no mistake - not all single-ingredient supplements are created equally.
UMZU's Vitamin D3 is of the highest possible quality and is suspended in MCT oil from coconuts to ensure that your D3 is properly absorbed. By taking Vitamin D3 daily, you begin to support mood, well-being, immune health, structural support and hormonal production.
Liquid Vitamin D3
Interestingly, Vitamin D3 is not actually a vitamin - it's a hormone that hails from the kidneys. It's primary function is to improve calcium absorption in the blood. It's a very common modern-day deficiency that is vital to correct.
Vitamin D3 is a highly-researched supplement, shown to improve markers in bone density, mood, well-being, and metabolism.†
Vitamin D3 is fat-soluble and is best absorbed as a liquid suspending in fat.
At UMZU, we suspend our Liquid Vitamin D3 in a high-quality MCT Oil made from coconut oil.
