Vitamin D3: Weight Loss and Depression
Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most commonly unrecognized medical conditions. This deficiency negatively affects every cell in your body; including your fat cells. Studies have shown that people with adequate vitamin D tend to lose more weight than those with low levels. All cells need vitamin D, including fat cells. It helps cells figure out whether to store fat or burn it. The lower your levels, the more likely your body will store fat. By fueling your body with PurePharma’s high dose D3, your body will transition out of a fat-storage state and into a fat-burning one, thus speeding up weight loss.
Are you experiencing feelings of depression and/or other mood disorders? Vitamin D has long been recognized as a nutrient essential to the development and maintenance of strong bones. It also contributes to your overall health. Being deficient in vitamin D has been linked to a number of disorders including cancer, autoimmune disease, diabetes, and depression. Many recent studies have found a link between low vitamin D levels and depression. Research shows the lower the levels of vitamin D in someone’s blood, the greater their chances are of suffering from clinical depression. Vitamin D plays a role in maintaining the brain’s signaling pathways and reducing inflammation. The combination of Vitamin D deficiency and inflammation in the body and brain degrades brain cells leading to depression. Educate your members about Vitamin D Deficiency.

In at #3: Beta-Alanine
- It can improve your muscular power output.
- Beta Alanine is particularly effective in high repetition sports and also where there are multiple bouts of high intensity activity. Highly specific to CrossFit!
- It can also increase your muscle mass.
- It will further increase your anaerobic endurance
- Your aerobic endurance. So this is fantastic for a WOD athlete where we’re expected to perform in an anaerobic capacity and also in aerobic capacity.
- It can delay your muscular fatigue, which is fantastic for your sustainability during a WOD.
How Much Do You Take?
Beta Alanine takes around two to three weeks to achieve muscular saturation. That is the build up of this supplement in your body to get it to it’s maximum capability and performance enhancing effect, but some people do experience benefits right off the bat.
Take between 2 & 3 grams ABOUT 45 MINS PRIOR TO YOUR WOD
In at #2: Fish Oil
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 10 years you should have heard of the benefits of this one! This amazing supplement has many benefits including FAT LOSS & HEALTH, but what I’m talking about today is the PERFORMANCE
- An increase in lung capacity. Massive performance benefits there.
- You can also increase your lung volume.
- Due to the DHA fat within the fish oil supplement, you can improve your TRAINING FOCUS and your TRAINING DRIVE
- Due to an increase in an enzyme which increases nitric oxide in your body, FISH OIL actually improves VASODILATION. So, your ability to deliver nutrients and blood to your working muscles is greatly improved.
- You also get an increase in testosterone levels
- An increase in growth hormone levels, both amazing to be able to maximize protein synthesis and facilitate repair
So, how much do you take?
Don’t be afraid to take between 6 and 10 grams, that’s 6000 and 10,000 milligrams of this supplement every single day. Now, to benefit from this and the vasodilation aspect of this supplement, break this amount up and have it with your three meals or three main meals of the day because after four hours of taking this supplement with a main meal, you can experience the vasodilation benefit of this supplement.
In at #1: Vitamin D3!
Now, onto my TOP PICK, and that is Vitamin D3. “Oh no, not another vitamin.” I hear you say! Actually, it’s actually been wrongly stated as a vitamin. It’s actually a STEROID HORMONE.
When I put it into that context, that almost alone almost spells out the performance enhancing benefits of this amazing supplement.
Vitamin D3 is produced when UVB rays are exposed to your skin. Unfortunately around 75% of Americans (many other countries are similar) are all deficient in this supplement. And the reason is that we spend too much time under cover. Let’s take a look at a traditional day:
→ You wake up in your house
→ You get into the car,
→ You drive to work
→ You work (normally under cover)
→ Get back into the car
→ Drive to your box or to your gym
→ You drive home
→ Go inside the house
→ Go to bed!
WE JUST DON’T GET ENOUGH SUNLIGHT! And when we are outside we’re prompted to slap the sunscreen on and prevent ourselves from getting our UVB exposure!
Now, how important is it? Well, there is a vitamin D3 receptor on every single cell of your body. That goes to show how important this supplement really is in improving your overall health, but ultimately your performance.
Testosterone and growth hormone have performance-enhancing benefits and there are many athletes taking additional synthetic versions of these hormones to further their performance, but they aren’t deficient in these hormones. What I’m saying with vitamin D3 is, it is a steroid hormone, but many of us are deficient in this supplement or in this hormone. So, therefore, all we are doing is supplementing to bring it up to the level that it should be.
Your level should be 50 nanograms per milliliter. Most people are extremely low at around 20!
The way to find out for sure if you are deficient is to have a 25 OHD test or a 25-hydroxy vitamin D test. Most people cannot get this test. So, what’s the safe way to get your levels up and benefiting from the performance-enhancing benefits of this steroid hormone, is to take between 2000 and 5000 IU per day. Be sure to not take too much. In many studies, very recently, it has been shown that if you are taking more than 5000 IU per day, it can have a detrimental effect on your performance.
If you are not taking a Vitamin D supplement, you should be! Check out these articles below. That’s why we carry PurePharma Vitamin D at the gym. Get yours now!!
