What are the benefits of vitamin D?
Vitamin D is vital for a healthy body but it’s estimated that 1 in 5 people in the UK are vitamin D deficient. For most of us, we just can’t get the sun exposure needed to produce adequate amounts of vitamin D. Did you know that it’s impossible to get enough vitamin D from food sources? So for many of us, supplementation is key.
Adequate levels of vitamin D are necessary for the normal functioning of the immune system.
Our teeth and bones require good levels of vitamin D for optimum mineralisation and vitamin D plays a crucial role in the utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
Vitamin D is required for normal muscle function and cell division, it is therefore important for every single cell in the body.
Why include Vitamin K?
Vitamin K contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, working synergistically with vitamin D to ensure that calcium is not only absorbed but sent to our bones where we need it the most.
Who is it suitable for?
Previously recommended just to groups deemed to be at risk, Public Health England now recommends everyone takes vitamin D supplements, especially during the autumn and winter. Vitamin K is often taken by those wanting to support the maintenance of normal bones, such as postmenopausal women.
Where is the vitamin D sourced from?
The vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin (sheep wool). It is therefore suitable for vegetarians but not vegans.
Is this product suitable for children?
Yes, it's safe from 1 year of age at just 1 drop per day. The dose should be adjusted according to age/bodyweight.
