Vitamin D, known as “the sunshine vitamin”, is vital for bone development and immune system health. It facilitates efficient calcium utilization, which in turn helps form and maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also contributes to a healthy immune system. Since the chief dietary source of vitamin D is fish and fortified dairy products, strict vegetarians and vegans are often lacking in vitamin D. Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Vegan Bioenhanced Vitamin D3 is a new plant-based source of this essential nutrient, developed especially for vegans and vegetarians.
Carefully extracted from lichen, it provides natural vitamin D in its most bioactive form, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3). It is sourced from a unique species of organic, non-GMO lichen which has the ability to produce vitamin D in the natural D3 form. Vitamin D3 is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body. The lichen is wild-harvested and extracted in a sustainable manner, and carefully processed to ensure optimum purity and stability.
With 1000 IU in each capsule, Vegan Bioenhanced Vitamin D3 helps meet individual vitamin D requirements when dietary intake or sun exposure is low.
Each capsule contains:
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) (lichen): 1000 IU (25 mcg) Non-medicinal ingredients:
Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), vegetable lubricant (palm).
Recommended use: Bones are often thought of as a static framework for the body, but they are actually dynamic, living tissues that constantly regenerate. While calcium is the main nutrient needed for bone development, vitamin D is vital to bone health. Vitamin D3 enables normal bone mineralization by enhancing the absorption of calcium in the digestive tract.
Vitamin D is important for far more than just healthy bones. There are vitamin D receptors on nearly all cells, including the white blood cells that make up the immune system. Vitamin D stimulates these receptors to enhance the immune system’s capacity to defend against harmful microbes. It also promotes the expression of the antimicrobial proteins that are responsible for fighting off pathogens.
Recommended adult dose: 1 capsule daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Cautions: Keep out of the reach of children.
