WHAT IS VITAMIN D?
Vitamin D is often referred to as the “sunshine vitamin” because our body creates vitamin D from direct sunlight on our skin when we’re outdoors.
Vitamin D is vital for a healthy body, but it is estimated that 1 in 5 people in the U.K. are vitamin D deficient. For most of us, we just can’t get enough sun exposure needed to produce adequate amounts of vitamin D. In the U.K., sunlight doesn’t contain enough UVB radiation in winter (October to early March) for our skin to be able to make sufficient 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.
WHY IS VITAMIN D SO IMPORTANT?
Vitamin D plays a number of important roles within the body. It is involved in hundreds of cellular actions. The claims below for vitamin D are backed up by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune system
- Helps to maintain normal bones and teeth
- Contributes to normal muscle function
- Contributes to the process of cell division
- Contributes to the normal absorption of calcium and phosphorus
- Contributes to normal blood calcium levels
Biomed Vitaminerals Vitamin D3 1000IU has been specially formulated to give you a convenient source of this much needed nutrient. Furthermore, our supplement contains Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which is the preferred form of vitamin D, produced naturally by the body on exposure to sunlight.
DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH RECOMMENDATION
The U.K. Department of Health recommends daily supplementation for everyone over the age of 1 between October and early March as we don’t get enough vitamin D from sunlight and since it’s difficult for people to get enough vitamin D from food alone.
