WHAT IS ULTRA VITAMIN D 1000IU?
Ultra Vitamin D provides optimum strength vitamin D which is an important vitamin needed by the body.
It contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and also supports the normal function of immune system, cell division and normal muscle function.
Vitamin D is usually synthesised by the body when exposed to sunlight. However, many areas in the world do not receive sufficient sunlight or people limit their sun exposure in sunny areas due to the negative effects of the sun’s UV rays. These reasons have led to widespread low vitamin D levels in many parts of the world.
There are several reasons why vitamin D supplementation may be recommended, including:
- Reduced sun exposure in certain groups of people for example – older people, those who cover their skin, certain occupations, medical reasons and those with darker skin tones as increased melanin content can reduce skins production of vitamin D
- Increased requirement at certain life stages
- Increased dietary intolerances (e.g. lactose and dairy) and allergies
- People who are on a diet
Department of Health in the UK recommends that everybody from birth take a vitamin D supplement to ensure safe levels of vitamin D.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in foods such as oily fish, mushrooms, butter and yolks of eggs. In the UK, an average diet only provides about 3 to 4 micrograms of vitamin D per day.
Ultra Vitamin D provides effective levels of the preferred form of vitamin D3 known as cholecalciferol. This is the preferred form as this is the specific form synthesised in the human body and is therefore more effective than D2.
