We used to spend a lot more time outside, but for the majority of us, the nature of our modern lifestyles keeps us out of the sun. As a result of this, vitamin D deficiency is extremely common – studies show that 1 in 3 Canadians is deficient, and 2 in 3 have less than the recommended level. Vitamin D deficiency can manifest itself in symptoms like low immune function, fatigue, muscle weakness, mood imbalances and osteoporosis in older adults.
We need this vitamin for many different things – calcium absorption, immune function, mood health, skin health, cardiovascular function, hormone balance, and even more. We choose D3 for our vitamin D supplements, because it’s the most natural form of vitamin D, and it’s easily absorbed in the body.
One softgel contains your daily dose of 2500IU of vitamin D3 in a base of organic coconut oil for enhanced absorption.
