Vitamin D Supplements

Vitamin D is required by our bodies to regulate a number of important functions, much like a hormone. Vitamin D supplements usually contain Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). While all mammals can synthesize adequate Vitamin D from sufficient sunlight, taking a D3 supplement may help to prevent Vitamin D deficiency and associated symptoms, especially in Winter or for those working indoors.

Vitamin D Info

Most of us are aware that we produce vitamin D through exposure to sunlight. Varying factors such as the latitude you live at, the time of day you spend in sunlight, changing seasons, your age, culture and your type of skin pigmentation all have a major influence on how much vitamin D you produce through the skin. Studies show at least 40% of us have insufficient levels of this important vitamin, while 3- 4% are clinically deficient.

Vitamin D is one of the fat soluble vitamins and in its bioactive form (1,25 D) is required by our bodies to regulate a number of important functions, much like a hormone. It is an essential factor in calcium absorption, maintaining normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, bone formation and strength, muscle integrity and immune function. It has a significant role in reducing inflammation. Most importantly, 1,25 D controls the development of many serious diseases by its proven role in inhibiting the conversion of healthy tissue to diseased tissue.

Vitamin D Benefits

Vitamin D is well known to improve bone strength and reduce the risk of fractures. Prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer, breast, prostate and skin cancers, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, heart disease and flu as well as improving weight loss in overweight people and promoting fertility are all well researched benefits of increasing vitamin D intake to optimum levels.

Vitamin D supplementation is recommended for pregnant women to improve their children’s bone density and health throughout life.

Vitamin D Side Effects

Vitamin D synthesised in the body through exposure to sunlight is self-regulating and non-toxic. Toxicity is only possible from supplemented vitamin D, and there are no published reports that we're aware of of toxicity in amounts under 40,000IU per day.

Product Reviews

  • First Time For Me

    star

    This is the first time I have purchased this brand of Vitamin D, and I've only been on them 2 weeks, but I must say being a shift worker, it helps with my sleeping and I really like the Soft Gels over Tablets. My energy levels and sleeping pattern have improved while being on them. I'm not a person that gets a lot of sun, so I feel supplementing is important for me.

  • Super fast bone healing!

    star

    I badly broke my ankle (tibia and fibula) 6 weeks ago and I was taking 4 capsules a day to help heal my bones quickly. At my 6 week x-ray they could no longer even see where the breaks had been (and they had been completely snapped off). I would say that this is pretty good proof that this product really gets the calcium into your bones. I believe that this would apply to teeth as well as bones. Highly recommend.

    star

    I was plagued with 3 roads of skin infections, my doctor did a blood test and deiscovered I was very low on Vitamin D, she put me on medicated vitamin D for three months and after that I started taking this brand of vitamin D. Thats was three years ago and I have not had another infection sinc. They are wonderful tasting and easy to take.
