Fabutan celebrates Vitamin D Awareness Month with D-boosting package

Fabutan provides equivalent of 20 billion IUs annually of vitamin D

CALGARY, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - Fabutan Sun Tan Studios, Canada's largest tanning company, is celebrating Vitamin D Awareness Month in November with a package tailored to those who prefer to get their vitamin D the way nature intended, through exposure to UVB light.

The Vitamin D Infusion Package offers 75-minutes for those who choose to maintain higher vitamin D levels from November until February when natural sunlight does not provide adequate amounts of UVB to produce vitamin D. Customers can maintain natural vitamin D levels with two to four visits per week for three to six minutes per visit, not enough time to necessarily tan but certainly enough to increase vitamin D levels.

As well, participating Fabutan Suntan Studios are now selling Ddrops(TM), a liquid vitamin D in one drop daily format. One drop of Ddrops(TM) contains 1,000 IU's of naturally sourced vitamin D3, without any other chemicals, nor additives.

"Fabutan is very committed to elevating the vitamin D levels of Canadians," explained Fabutan President Doug McNabb. "Our customers are educating themselves about vitamin D and regularly asking questions about vitamin D and the various ways to get it."

"We're proud to potentially be one of Canada's largest providers of vitamin D, and to play a major role in the fight against vitamin D deficiency," McNabb continued.

As many as 97 per cent of Canadians have been reported to be vitamin D deficient by Dr. David Hanley of the University of Calgary. Boosting vitamin D levels is important in the winter months, when Canada's northern latitude prevents adequate doses of UVB from sunlight to produce sufficient levels of vitamin D.

Indoor tanners, who tan two to three times per week, have 90 per cent higher vitamin D levels than non-tanners; the UVB from Fabutan's tanning beds produce up to 10,000 IUs of vitamin D per session, and with the addition of Ddrops(TM) Fabutan is without doubt a serious weapon in the effort to achieve higher vitamin D levels.
