WHY SUPPLEMENT WITH VITAMIN D3?
Our body produces vitamin D3 when we are exposed to sunlight. However our modern lifestyles mean that many of us struggle to get enough, particularly during the winter months.
The NHS consider Vitamin D3 as an ‘essential’ supplement for everyone between the months of September - April.
VEGAN VITAMIN D3 FROM ALGAE
Vitamin D3 is the most bioavailable form of vitamin D and unlike vitamin D2 it can be properly utilised by our bodies. However most vitamin D3 on the market is sourced from sheep’s wool, and is therefore not suitable for vegans.
Our vegan vitamin D3 is derived from algae, providing a bioavailable source of vitamin D3 without any animal ingredients required.
D3 & K2
Vitamin D3 is well known for its health benefits, but many people often forget that these health benefits are enhanced when D3 is combined with K2.
For example, vitamin D3 and K2 are both essential for calcium absorption in the bone. Vitamin D3 increases absorption whilst K2 activates a protein called osteocalcin, which integrates the calcium into the bone. Without these two nutrients calcium cannot do its job effectively.
Vitamin K2 also binds to excess calcium in the bloodstream to improve arterial flow and flexibility.
