Listing Detail Tabs

Vitamin D3 has long been recognised for its many benefits, most notably its contribution to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth where it plays a key role in ensuring a sufficient level of calcium is present in bones. Other benefits of vitamin D3 include boosting the activity of immune cells and a further contribution to both heart and brain health.

Sunshine Vitamin:

Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient and is found in Cod liver oil, vitamin D-fortified foods, egg yolks and butter. However, the majority of vitamin D in the body is created during a chemical reaction that starts with sunlight exposure to the skin. This is why vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin.

Unfortunately due to concerns about skin cancer many of us don't get the safe sun exposure we need to generate sufficient vitamin D. In fact, during the months of October to April those in the UK need to supplement with vitamin D as at this time of year the sunlight we do get is at the wrong frequency to stimulate vitamin D production. As a general rule of thumb if your shadow is taller than you then no vitamin D is being produced.

For ageing bones and joints:

As the skin ages, it becomes less efficient at converting rays from the sun into vitamin D and a gradual loss of bone density can occur leaving bones vulnerable to breaks or fractures. Mature women in particular are at increased risk of bone loss due to dropping oestrogen levels after menopause. Higher intakes of vitamin D have also been shown to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness, which is a serious risk factor for bone fractures among men and women of sixty years of age and older. (The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of at least 800iu of vitamin D)

There has been a vast amount of research into Vitamin D in recent years, with the optimum dose for people in the UK being 800iu - 1200iu.Prowise Health Care Vitamin D3 Capsules are manufactured in the UK to GMP ... Please click here to ask a question
