At-home sample collection device for monitoring levels of vitamin D. Laboratory results are provided within 5 days.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. The body can produce vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Certain foods such as fatty fish, dairy products, fortified cereals and egg yolks contain small amounts of vitamin D.
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus which are important for building and maintaining strong bones. It also plays a role in supporting the immune system and may help reduce the risk of certain infections and autoimmune disorders – and even protect you from certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some types of cancer.

Vitamin D deficiency is most common in people with limited sun exposure, those with darker skin, older adults, individuals with certain medical conditions and those with a limited dietary intake.
Symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include:
