Ultra Vitamin D3 1000IU Tablets 96's
Ultra Vitamin D provides optimum strength vitamin D, a nutrient that plays a truly remarkable role in the body and is important for many areas of health.
It not only contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth but is also known for its role in supporting normal function of the immune system, normal cell division and normal muscle function.
What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in foods such as mushrooms, oily fish, butter and egg yolk. Vitamin D has functions and benefits that are probably more wide ranging than any other vitamin.
There is increasing evidence for the beneficial effects from dietary vitamin D which has shown benefits for its contribution to:
Normal function of the immune system
Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
Normal absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus
Normal muscle function
Normal blood calcium levels
The process of cell division
For adults over the age of 60, it has also been shown that a daily vitamin D intake of 20µg or more from all sources helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fractures among men and women 60 years of age and older.
D3 the preferred bioactive form
Ultra Vitamin D provides effective levels of the preferred form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Ultra Vitamin D provides British Pharmacopoeia quality vitamin D3. D3 is the preferred form of vitamin D because it is the specific form made in the human body and therefore more effective than D2 which is found in some supplements.
Vitamin D - the sunshine vitamin
While our bodies manufacture vitamin D on exposure to sunshine, the body does not generate vitamin D when sitting behind a glass window, whether in your car or at home, because these UV rays cannot penetrate glass to generate vitamin D in the skin. Sunscreens, even weak ones, while essential to protect the skin, can affect the body's ability to generate vital vitamin D.
Vitamin D and the diet and health benefits
Vitamin D is naturally present in some foods (e.g. oily fish such as herring, sardines, fish liver oils, eggs, butter) and in a few foods that are fortified (e.g. margarine, some cereals, some yoghurts). Vitamin D is fat soluble, therefore advice to eat lower fat diets may contribute to reduced intakes from foods and hence dietary supplementation may be needed.
