Not all Vitamin D3 are created equally. As with our other products we only use the best ingredients to gain you the most benefit. Most of the Vitamin D3 you see advertised comes from sheep sebum. Sebum is the oil taken from the fleece of sheep and converted to pre Vitamin D3.
I have chosen an algae source from my Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) It is the nearest form to the cholecalciferol that our own bodies make to help absorb sunlight and convert it to vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 plays a huge role in the body’s immune response as well as allow the body to absorb calcium more efficiently – something science is now proving as vital in the fight to prevent osteoporosis.
We have chosen to make it at 1000iu (microgram) strength because vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin and you can get too much of a good think!
Health experts are now saying that 1,000iu is sufficient for an adult or adolescent body. Any more can prove dangerous.
Studies are currently being carried out in Europe to ascertain if a recommended Daily Intake level needs to be regulated.
