Vitamin D3... 1000 IU/25 mcg
What Is It?
Introducing Canada's first truly vegan vitamin D3 sustainably sourced from non-GMO lichen. Lichen is a plant-like substance made up of symbiotic algae and fungi. Up until recently, the only vegan option available has been vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) which is usually sourced from soy. Other supplemental forms of D3 are usually sourced from sheep wool.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is primarily known to boost mood, especially during winter months when our skin gets little exposure to the sun. A vitamin D deficiency is related to S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder). However, vitamin D's commercial and scientific popularity is approaching that of vitamin C, and many people use it during cold and flu season to help prevent infection or as a daily supplement for general health.
Secondary Uses: Vitamin D is also vital to bone growth since it supports calcium absorption. Vitamin D deficiency results in rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, both of which are characterized by inadequate bone mineralization. More recently, vitamin D has been found to have protective effects against auto-immunity and several age-related diseases.
Who Should Take It?
Vitamin D3 Vegan can be used by vegans, those who usually take vitamin D2 from a plant source, and those looking for non-animal sourced vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 Vegan supports bone health, mood and immunity, and can benefit everyone from infants to seniors, since sun exposure in Canada is limited during many months of the year.
Why Vsoftgel™ ?
Manufactured with a patent pending technology, Vsoftgels™ offer superior advantages that vegans/vegetarians can now benefit from. One of the biggest advantages of offering vitamins in a softgel is that softgels allow for better bioavailability of active ingredients. Inside a softgel, fat soluble vitamins, such as vitamin D, can be suspended in an oil base which optimizes their potential for absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. AOR's Vsoftgel™ Vitamin D3 is vegan and more effective than vitamin D2. Vsoftgels™ offers these benefits to suit every lifestyle.
Take 1 softgel daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
