A nationwide infomercial by Robert Barefoot which ran in select test markets across the country offering Free Vitamin D For Life resulted in an enormous response and increased consumer awareness of the importance of nutritional supplements.
After launching a nationwide infomercial in select test markets, Bob Barefoot, known as “Mr. Coral Calcium” is seeing a tremendous response to his message and his offer for “Free Vitamin D for Life”.
Barefoot says that Vitamin D3 is a critical nutrient that the vast majority of us are not getting enough of. He reports that after the medical industry (led mainly by Dermatologists) initiated a nationwide scare some 30-40 years ago, warning us to avoid the sun, we saw a major increase in Vitamin D deficiency. Most of us know that Vitamin D helps build strong, healthy bones. But Barefoot tells us that’s only a very small part of the story; explaining its role for cell function, brain development, and overall good health and disease prevention.
Recent studies conducted by top medical institutes as well as the US Government show that Vitamin D3 can actually help ward off a host of diseases. In a recent article published on the US Government’s National Center for Biotechnology Information website states: “There is enough evidence that severe deficiency of vitamin D may lead to skeletal and nonskeletal disease. Both children and adolescents seem to be in high risk of low vitamin D status especially during winter. Having a diet higher in calcium and vitamin D as well as oral supplementation with vitamin D may be necessary for children and adolescents not only in the absence of sun exposure in winter time but also in preventing other diseases such as diabetes type 1, cancer and cardiovascular disease.”
Bob points out that when our skin is exposed to natural sunlight, the penetrating UVB rays generate huge amounts of vitamin D; as much as 50,000 international units (IU) in as little as 30 minutes. But most of us do not get enough sunlight or exposure on a regular basis, to guarantee we’re producing enough Vitamin D3. He also states that the vitamin D in our foods is usually Vitamin D2, which is not useable by our bodies. So that leaves supplements to pick up the slack.
Bob Barefoot has been selling “coral calcium”, calcium derived from the coral reefs in Okinawa, Japan, and promoting its health benefits as well as researching the link between calcium and vitamin D for many years. In the recent infomercial, where he’s interviewed by Kim Estes, he offer’s viewers bottles of “Barefoot Free Vitamin D3” with 90 tablets each containing 2000 IU of Vitamin D3. The vitamin D is free and his callers pay only a very small shipping and handling charge.
Barefoot routed all the calls to his Navarre, Florida call center which is managed by BarefootAndHealthy.com. Owner Brad Riley reported that the response to the infomercial was overwhelming and tells us: “With the recent press and media concerning the importance of Vitamin D and calcium, I feel that we’re clearly in a position to help America become healthy again, and then help the world!”
