Spend more of your valuable time with paying clients, rather than researching, writing, and marketing your content.
This researched and referenced 2,388-word article was created to build your expertise and authority by helping you:
  • Save 12 hours of work (that’s how long it took me to put it together from scratch to final, amazing product—yes, it’s really good!). Spend less time on content creation and more time finding and working with clients!
  • Earn expert status and build trust with your well-researched, professionally written and edited post because it’s fully backed up with references and is customizable to your voice and brand. Plus, it’s ghostwritten so YOU are the author!
  • Gain high-quality traffic when you share this with your email subscribers and social media followers.
  • Save $2,300 (that’s how much I would charge you if you wanted me to create this epic post just for you).
  • Stand out online because not only is this article customizable, but it’s for an exclusive group only. The sales are automatically capped at a maximum of 73 healthcare professionals. This means that, after the 73rd one is sold, no one else can ever buy this. Why does this matter? In today’s online world, epic, unique content is key. And, even though you can fully customize it, you still don’t want hundreds of other health and wellness professionals to have it. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 there were 70,900 dietitians and nutritionists in the U.S. alone! That means that just one nutrition pro out of about 1,000 will be able to use this article! Not to mention the 50,300 chiropractors, 356,900 fitness trainers, etc. who could also benefit from publishing this article on the importance of and how to get Vitamin D (but they won’t).

Vitamin D: Are you getting enough

Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble vitamin. It’s sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because our skin makes it when exposed to the sun.

It’s also the most common nutrient deficiency!

Like most vitamins, vitamin D has many functions in the body. It’s mostly known for its ability to help build strong bones. But, vitamin D is also important for a healthy immune system, digestive system, heart and mental health, blood sugar regulation, fertility, and resistance to cancer.

FUN FACT: Vitamin D is the vitamin with more scientific articles published since 2000 than any other vitamin.

Let’s talk about the many roles vitamin D has in promoting good health. We’ll also go over the different forms of vitamin D and what exactly is a deficiency. Finally, I’ll give you three sources of this critical nutrient and how much we should get.

Make sure you’re getting enough!
