I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to the most OBSESS-worthy woman in the entire world! She is a beautiful, successful business woman, a cancer survivor, a recreational pilot (yes, I said a pilot. She flies airplanes), and most importantly (to my brother and me) the most amazing and loving mother a son and daughter could ask for. Thank you, Mama, for everything that you do. You always put everyone before you and I hope that today, you can make some time for yourself. I know that your birthday doesn’t mean much to you, but to me, it means that you were born and I am grateful for that and want to celebrate it! I don’t know what I would do without you. I love you! Now, on to your OBSESSION!
My Mom is soooooo OMG OBSESSED with Vitamin D-3! She is pretty crazy about vitamins in general. Some of her favorites include Fish Oil, B Complex, Co Q 10, most recently Melatonin and of course, her beloved, all powerful D-3′s. Yes, Mom, I have been listening. My Mother was into D-3′s long before they became all the rage in the vitamin world. She is such a trend setter! Most of us (borderline ALL of us) don’t get nearly enough D vitamins in our diet. You can even spend a reasonably significant amount time in the sun, drink your milk, eat your veggies and STILL be Vitamin D deficient. I recently had a blood test and found that even I, the daughter of the high Vitamin D Priestess, was low in my D counts! “How could that be?” I proclaimed! “I take 1000 milligrams a day!” “Well,” says my endocrinologist, “It’s time to start taking 2000 milligrams.” She then assured me that she sees low Vitamin D levels in ALL of her patients and is quite used to it by now. It think that my mom takes some ridiculous amount like 4000 milligrams. She considers it her cancer repellent and swears by it. She feeds buckets of it to my grandparents. My mom is too cute!… and brilliant!
Some of the amazing benefits of Vitamin D-3 include assisting calcium in strengthening teeth and bones, enhances your immune system, regulates blood pressure, prevents osteoporosis, protects against cancer… the list goes on!

Thank you, Mama, for your endless knowledge! Happy Happy Birthday to you! Keep taking those vitamins!
