Vitamin D3 1000iu x 90 Tabs


Vitamin D is a remarkable vitamin, being the only one that can be produced by the body, rather than absorbed from the diet. The body is able to synthesise Vitamin D when given adequate exposure to sunshine, making it obvious why the deficiency is much more prevalent in the northern hemisphere, in comparison to the sunnier southern hemisphere.

Many people will be aware of the necessity of adequate Vitamin D within the body, ensuring strong healthy bones, with lower incidences of fractures and breaks, due to an increase in mineral absorption.

Years ago the condition Rickets was common, causing the bones in the legs to become soft and deformed in a typical 'bow' shape. It was treated at the time by introducing dietary supplements to school children and the problem was all but eliminated.

In recent years Rickets has been on the increase again, maybe this time because our children spend so little time outdoors in the little sunshine that we have, although today's typical child's diet probably does little to help!

Many adults may also not be getting adequate levels of Vitamin D due to the lack of time outdoors, and lack of sunshine in the UK combined with little dietary sources. Many individuals may consider the benefits of supplementation with Vitamin D3 to ensure healthy levels are maintained.

Should not be taken by anybody who has Sarcoidosis or anyone with hyperparathyroidism.
