- "Worldwide, an estimated 1 billion people have inadequate levels of vitamin D in their blood, and deficiencies can be found in all ethnicities and age groups" (Harvard School of Public Health, 2012). It is important to know your vitamin D level and supplement according to your individual needs.
- Strong bones and muscles, mental fitness, prevention of osteoporosis and athletic performance are just a few of the benefits that are linked to healthy vitamin D levels in countless scientific studies.
Young adults, seniors, and women all especially need to keep their vitamin D level in mind because they are at higher risk.
- Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiency can not be "tasted" or "felt." Therefore, it is important to test your level regularly.
The cerascreen Vitamin D test is a sample submission kit for at-home use. The test is used to determine your blood concentration of vitamin D and to monitor the level of 25-OH vitamin D. The Vitamin D test includes free return mailing and evaluation in our diagnostics laboratory as well as a detailed results report.

Vitamin D is a year-round issue
The Cerascreen Vitamin D Test makes determining your vitamin D levels fast and easy. You send a few drops of blood from your fingertip to our specialised laboratory, where we take care of the professional analysis and individual evaluation. Based on the test results, our nutrition experts will determine your personal vitamin D supplementation plan.
Vitamin D is generally considered a feel-good vitamin and supports more than 30 important bodily functions. But since vitamin D is primarily formed by the skin's direct exposure to sunshine, the vast majority of people are not sufficiently supplied with vitamin D! Additionally, many people have a nutritional condition that prevents them from absorbing and storing vitamin D properly.
