Lisa, how can vitamin D3 save money?
Vitamin D3 can save money because it is preventative health care. The average cost of taking Vitamin D3 1,000 IU daily for three months cost about $10 USD for a bottle of 100 capsules or tablets. This cost approximately $40 USD for a year’s supply. A correction dose for Vitamin D3 deficiency is one 50,000 IU Vitamin D3 tablet per week for eight weeks. The cost is approximately $10 USD. After a Vitamin D3 deficiency is corrected, the client begins taking the daily dose of Vitamin D3 1,000 IU.
Testing of Vitamin D3 deficiency is approximately $40USD. This can vary if it is paid out of pocket or if insurance covers the cost. Testing is done to confirm Vitamin D3 deficiency and again later to confirm that the correction dose of Vitamin D3 was effective.
Sunshine. This is FREE! The body will synthesize Vitamin D3 from exposure to direct sunshine for 15-20 minutes. This is skin with no sunscreen on. Wearing sunscreen is great for preventing skin cancer but will keep the body from synthesizing Vitamin D3. Of course the adverse effect of sunshine is sunburn. One has to be mindful with exposure to sunlight.
Now how does this save money? Vitamin D3 can reduce fall risk in elderly adults by 30% in less than three months. One hip fracture, remember there are two hips in the body, cost approximately $50,000 USD to repair.
Wow! Just $40 USD a year for Vitamin D3 can save $50,000 USD for a hip surgery. This is how Vitamin D3 can save money.
