The Department of Health reported that heart attack, stroke, cancer and diabetes are still the top causes of mortality in the Philippines.

Compared to other ailments common among Filipinos, these diseases are the most difficult to treat.

They may, however, be prevented with something as simple as having the right amounts of Vitamin D in the body.

Vitamin D, or the sunshine vitamin, is naturally produced by the skin when exposed to sunlight. Aside from keeping bones strong and capable of self recuperation, Vitamin D also promotes proper brain development and aids in maintaining normal heart
activities.

Another thing about this miracle worker is that it functions as an immune system booster which prevents foreign invaders from causing long-term damages to the body.

The country’s largest and leading pharmaceutical company, Unilab, recently commissioned a study on the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency and found that 7 of 10 working Pinoys suffer from the troublesome condition.

Doctors warned not to take Vitamin D deficiency lightly as it is linked to severe bone degradation and chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and certain types of cancer.

If you are the type who gets little to almost zero contact with the sun, get yourself tested now and ask your doctor about Forti-D.

A single dose of Forti-D—which contains 800 IU of Colecalciferol or Vitamin D3—meets the recommended daily sunshine vitamin requirements of Filipinos, keeping life-threatening diseases at bay.
