What if I told you that 70% of Americans were deficient in Vitamin D? And what if I told you could dramatically boost your Vitamin D levels without choking down a supplement? Today I’m sharing an unbiased review of Amp Human Topical Vitamin D+ Lotion.
I hate swallowing pills. And I’m terrible at it. If you ever saw me shoving my fingers down my throat trying to choke my prescriptions and vitamins down, you would ask “What is the matter with that woman?”
So, when I recently discovered I could supplement Vitamin D without taking a pill, I was all over it. A few weeks ago I was introduced to Amp Human Vitamin D+ lotion. Yep, LOTION. I squirt two pumps on my inner forearm and 5,000 iu of D3 goes straight into my body. Amp’s research demonstrates the ability to TRIPLE vitamin D levels in just 3-4 months, so I’ll be getting mine tested soon to compare to prior results. (I will report back in March when I get my bloodwork results.
The lotion smells great and absorbs fast. And it’s not expensive — around $25 for a 60-day supply (minus 20% if you purchase using my discount link.)
Have you had your Vitamin D levels checked? If not, ask for it the next time you have blood work done. Vitamin D is actually a hormone and it plays a critical role in mental health, bone density, immune support as well as helping to improve sleep and cognition. And, most of us (70% of Americans) are deficient. I was. And I live in a Colorado where we get lots of sunshine, even in the winter. If you live north of Atlanta, it’s impossible to get the recommended amount of Vitamin D from sunlight during the winter months.
