Wild Nutrition Food–Grown Vitamin D provides a high strength of 1000iu which is highly absorbable, biologically active (not storage) form of vitamin D3. This naturally includes all forms of vitamin D, including vitamin D3, D2 and D1. High absorption and retention in the body reduces the need for high dosing long term. Vitamin D supplementation can be especially supportive during the winter months and in those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 5 or over 65 years of age. Those with darker skin (or indeed lighter skin protected with sun lotion) or those who lack regular daily exposure to sufficient light should keep topped up.
Active Ingredients: Without a sufficient supply of vitamin D, the body cannot form calcitriol (known as the “active vitamin D”) which plays a crucial role in the normal function of the immune, cardiovascular and muscoloskeletal system. Our body needs vitamin D to absorb calcium. This in turn leads to insufficient calcium absorption from the diet. A person who does not get enough vitamin D and calcium is at a higher risk for bone mass loss, of which one example is osteoporosis.
