Vitamin D can play a role in everything from strong bones to fighting off the flu to preventing heart disease.* Good thing your body naturally makes the stuff! But despite free, easy access, many people still face vitamin D deficiency. Read on to learn the facts about getting your daily D:
Vitamin D works hard to keep you healthy. Most people know that vitamin D and calcium are necessities for strong bones and teeth. But the medical community is still working to understand all the other important roles vitamin D plays in your health. So far, vitamin D has been linked to some impressive benefits: maintaining your immune system to help fight infection and autoimmune issues, optimal muscle function, a healthy heart and circulatory system, strong lungs, and brain development.* (That’s quite a list!)
Your sunny mood and weight loss efforts may depend on vitamin D.* To understand how vitamin D can help with your mood and appetite, it helps to know vitamin D isn’t actually a vitamin at all – it’s a hormone! And we all know how hormone imbalances can wreak havoc with the way you think, feel, and eat. Research shows vitamin D can help improve the symptoms of depression and may also boost weight loss by improving mood and controlling your appetite.*
And don’t forget about your bones, heart, and immune system! Vitamin D is one of your body’s first lines of defense against infection.* (One study showed that schoolkids who took vitamin D were less likely to catch the flu!*) It’s also crucial to maintaining your bone density and heart health.* With so many amazing gifts to offer, you can understand why it’s so important to get enough vitamin D.
Vitamin D comes free with sunlight. (And spending 20 minutes a day in the sun doesn’t sound like such a big challenge…) Just 20-30 minutes of direct sun exposure on sunscreen-free skin is all it takes for your body to make enough vitamin D to maintain your immunity, arteries, bones, mood, and much more! However, between gray winter days, air pollution, city living, and jobs that increasingly keep us indoors during the day, many people still struggle to get the sun exposure they need to make adequate vitamin D all year long.
If you don’t get your vitamin D from spending time in the sun, you have to get it through your diet. Ideally, only about 10% of your daily D should come from what you eat. In reality, many folks depend on their food to provide a much bigger portion. That means you need plenty of vitamin D-rich foods like fatty fish, beef liver, mushrooms, cheese and other dairy, and egg yolks. If you’re thinking, “Oh, yuck!” or “I can’t eat that – it ties my gut in knots!” you’re not alone.
When food sensitivities or preferences keep you from getting the vitamin D you need, Vitamin D Plus can help fill in the blanks. If your hometown, work demands, or dietary limitations prevent you from getting enough vitamin D, supplementation may be the answer. Vitamin D Plus offers a powerful dose of vitamin D3, plus vitamin K, which is essential to absorption of D. Vitamin D Plus is also third-party tested to be certain of its quality and efficacy.
Vitamin D Plus is a superior, trustworthy source of vitamins D and K that can meet your nutrient needs and get your body back to normal.* It’s probably not a coincidence that almost every type of cell in your body has receptors for vitamin D! You don’t have to be a medical expert to grasp the significance of how ready your body is to make and use this daily essential. If you’re experiencing symptoms of vitamin D deficiency like fatigue, aches and pains, or bone and muscle weakness, it’s time to find out more.
It’s always best to get your vitamin D as nature intended: with regular time in the sunlight and a balanced, healthy diet. But if you suspect low-D levels, ask your doctor to test and consider adding Vitamin D Plus to your day.

Vitamin D Plus FAQs
FAQ: What is Vitamin D Plus?
Vitamin D Plus is a potent blend of vitamin D3 and vitamin K (to boost D absorption). It can:
- Help maintain your immune system*
- Boost weight loss and appetite control*
- Build strong bones and teeth*
- Encourage balanced hormones and mood*
- Keep arteries healthy, a factor in heart disease*
- Be a useful supplement for those who may not get regular sunlight or vitamin D in their diet*
FAQ: How do I take it?
As a dietary supplement, Vitamin D Plus can be taken with meals or on an empty stomach – whatever is most convenient for you. Studies have shown that absorption of vitamin D may be slightly better when eaten along with other healthy fats from fish, beef, or olive oil. However, the difference is small enough that there’s no real need to change when you take it. As with all supplements, please check with your healthcare provider to be sure Vitamin D Plus is a good fit for your health and needs.
FAQ: How long will I need to take it?
The best way to get vitamin D is from daily sunlight, so you should always aim for that first! If you aren’t able to get 20-30 minutes of sunlight every day and vitamin D in your diet, then take Vitamin D Plus daily to help. Check with your medical practitioner to get your D tested, and aim for levels at or above 60 ng/ml.
Getting enough vitamin D and healthy omega-3 fats achieves some of the same goals, and research shows they work better together than alone when it comes to brain health.* If Vitamin D Plus ticks some important boxes for you on your journey to great health, you might also benefit from Omega Ultra.

Why Buy From Us...
Simple Science-Based Solutions to Better Your Life!
With all the options you can choose from, you deserve to know the differences between what we’ve created for you and what’s out there on the market, as well as why we go to such great lengths to ensure the quality of your supplements.
Effectiveness and Bioavailability
First and foremost, the products you find here are crafted from the highest quality ingredients available. Rather than selecting ingredients for shelf life, we formulate supplements to enhance YOUR LIFE! That is why we opt for top-notch ingredients and focus on bioavailability and benefits. It might not matter to you that we use certain forms of nutrients instead of cheaper versions, but your body knows the difference.
Produced in a Family-Owned Facility that Does Third-Party Testing
A high percentage of supplements don’t even test positive for the ingredients they claim to contain! To avoid any risk of a big manufacturer cutting corners on the products we create for you, JJ made arrangements with a family-owned facility she knows well. (She was a sales representative for them long before she wrote four NY Times bestselling books to help people avoid unnecessary weight gain and painful exposure to food intolerances!) She went to the people she trusted, the people she’s seen ship back countless ingredients after their independent third-party tests did not confirm quality and efficacy. Any idea what happens to those returned ingredients? Yep – you guessed it. They go on to another manufacturer who does not invest in outside testing.
The best part of JJ’s arrangement is that this is a family operation being passed down from generation to generation. That means no risk of a big buyout that would do away with the quality control measures JJ demands from the facility that creates your specialty supplement formulas.
Taste & Consistency
You won’t find a creamier shake that provides as much protein, with as little sugar, and ZERO exposure to the 7 high food intolerance foods. You won’t find bars that avoid the harmful proteins in gluten, soy, dairy, egg, peanuts, and corn that taste anywhere near as delicious as what JJ has created for you. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and you can rest assured the shakes and bars you fall in love with now will remain consistent in their tasty flavor and creamy texture.

About JJ Virgin
JJ Virgin owned a beautiful high-end gym in Palm Springs and catered to the Hollywood elite who needed to prepare for starring roles and world tours. She was the nutrition and fitness expert on Dr. Phil and other major TV shows (ranging from Freaky Eaters to The Doctors), and print media authorities relied on her expertise. She had all the success a certified nutritionist and trainer could want. But when she made an important discovery – almost by accident – she left all that behind to stop the needless suffering and weight gain caused by undiagnosed food intolerances.
Nutrition and fitness theory has always relied on the calories-in-calories-out model that declares your weight is simply a function of how much you eat and exercise. However, JJ saw firsthand that this was definitely not the case. Even when she sequestered challenging weight loss cases at a retreat where she controlled what they ate and how much they worked out, there were people who still GAINED weight. So she got curious – very curious.
Since JJ supported the foremost doctors and NDs with their most challenging patients, she had access to the best nutraceuticals and tests. Combining data from the doctors she worked with and clients who trusted her to find a solution to their non-stop weight struggles, JJ found that there were 7 foods that cause the body to react by protecting itself with extra fat, inflammation, skin issues, and more. She narrowed the offending foods down to the 7 most common and used that as the starting point for what evolved into her NY Times bestselling books The Virgin Diet and The Virgin Diet Cookbook.
The 7 High Food Intolerance Foods (she dubbed them the 7 HiFI foods) were removed from the diets of hundreds of willing clients for 21 days, long enough for antibody production to slow or stop. Then, one at a time for one week each, the 7 foods were reintroduced. The results were astonishing! The simple removal of these foods reduced weight significantly, plus eliminated joint pain, headaches, and skin issues, leaving both JJ and her test subjects happily shocked. The reintroduction process caused the symptoms to return, widely more apparent since antibodies were no longer present. This inspired a full-scale test of the Virgin Diet protocol and, later, the launch of the books.
You might be wondering what all this has to do with the products you’re looking at here on the JJ Virgin Store? To answer that question, you need to know that the 7 HiFI foods JJ discovered were corn, gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, and sugar or artificial sweeteners.
(You can learn more about the 7 HiFI foods in the free PDF download HERE.)
As it turns out, most shakes, bars, and supplements include one or more of these foods under sneaky names that you’d have to be a food detective to recognize. JJ had a rapidly growing family of people relying on her to guide them away from these 7 Hi FI foods, and that meant they needed safe protein shakes at the very least. One majorly successful part of the Virgin Diet is starting your day with a power-packed protein shake, but… JJ could not find ONE brand on the market that met her stringent requirements and tasted anywhere near delicious.
She went back to her roots, to the same community of high-end nutraceutical creators, doctors, and NDs that she had first shared her discoveries with. She banded together a network of caring professionals to source the best ingredients and formulate a tasty line of nutritious shakes and bars, as well as exceptionally high-quality supplements that are free from the 7 foods. She also built and educated the team that supports you when you shop here on this store.
It has been a long and amazing journey in order for JJ Virgin and this entire team to touch so many lives. So what’s your health goal? How can we help you? Check out some of the stories of people just like you on the reviews tab, and then reach out to let us know how we can best support you.
