Description

Vitamin D3 supplements, Bio-Vitamin D3 from Pharma Nord contains vitamin D3 dissolved in cold-pressed olive oil and encapsulated in small, easy-to-swallow “pearls” of soft gelatine. Vitamin D contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth and bones, supports normal muscle functioning, and plays a role in the body’s cell division and specialisation. When UV rays hit the skin, the active form of vitamin D is formed. The body’s ability to produce vitamin D is reduced with age, however the vitamin D synthesis is inhibited by lack of sunshine or covering up with clothes. Pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, young children, elderly people and those with dark skin may also require supplemental vitamin D due to inadequate UV exposure. Vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) is a fat soluble vitamin. The majority of vitamin D in the body is created during skin exposure to sunlight, but many people in Northern Europe and the USA do not get adequate exposure. Small amounts of vitamin D can also be found in egg yolk, fish oils and oily fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel. Cholecalciferol is an animal source of vitamin D3 (derived from lanolin). Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the most easily absorbed form of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is lipisoluble (dissolves in oil), so an oil-based preparation is best. Pharma Nord's Vitamin D3 supplements is specially formulated in gel 'pearls'. Our preparation is dissolved in cold pressed organic olive oil to enhance absorption. It contains the cholecalciferol form of D3, which is produced naturally in the skin. Vitamin D3 increases the absorption of calcium from food and reduces the excretion of calcium from the body. These effects ensure that calcium levels are maintained and allow adequate levels to be stored in bones and teeth. If blood calcium levels are too low, calcium may be mobilised from bones for use elsewhere in the body, resulting in bone weakening. Vitamin D3 is also responsible for maintaining healthy muscles and nerves, and for maintaining a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that vitamin D may stimulate the body's production of anti-viral and anti-bacterial proteins. Some experts say they would choose vitamin D before vitamin C when considering cold and flu protection.
