Vitamin D3 2000IU Strawberry-flavoured (90)

This product is very tasty, with a natural strawberry aroma loved by children and grown-ups alike and has the natural form of vitamin D, cholecalciferol, or D3, which is much more effective at raising vitamin D levels than prescription vitamin D, the ergocalciferol form (D2), which is synthetic and may, in fact, actually compete with D3 for absorption, as studies have shown.

  • According to the latest research, D3 is approximately 87 percent more potent in raising and maintaining vitamin D concentrations and produces 2- to 3-fold greater storage of vitamin D than does D2.
  • Regardless of which form you use, your body must convert it into a more active form, and vitamin D3 is converted 500 percent faster than vitamin D2.
  • Vitamin D2 also has a shorter shelf life, and its metabolites bind poorly with proteins, further hampering its effectiveness.

Description

As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.

Vitamin D3 supplementation is the key to get the necessary amount of Vitamin D without sunbathing. Vitamin D is normally obtained from diet or synthesised by skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun, however, it is not abundant in food.

Vitamin D is important to the body for various different functions:

Muscles need it to move, for example, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every part of your body and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses.

Together with calcium vitamin D also helps protect elderly people from osteoporosis.

Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium and strengthen bones and teeth and can prevent the onset of osteoporosis.

Vitamin D up-regulates your ability to fight infections, as well as chronic inflammation. It produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides, the most important of which is cathelicidin, a naturally occurring broad-spectrum antibiotic. This is one of the explanations for why it can be so effective against colds and influenza.
