Vitamin D3 1000 iu
Vitamin D has been all over the news in recent years, 2020 especially so. This vital nutrient has a vast amount of roles to play in our body.
Maintains Calcium Balance - vitamin D is essential to maintain blood levels of calcium. When calcium goes up after eating, Vitamin D will take it from the blog to our skeleton, and also stimulate the laying down of minerals in the skeleton.
Improves mood - Vitamin D has a vital role to play in keeping our mood up. In fact there is a major link between low levels of vitamin D and Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Regulates immunity - as has been discussed in the World press in the last 6 months, vitamin D can regulate many immune responses and almost all of the cells of the immune system have vitamin D receptors. It can reduce excessive and aggressive inflammatory responses, whilst enhancing many immune cell lines ability to control infection rapidly.
As the primary source of vitamin D for Humans is the conversion of cholesterol into vitamin D precursors upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation - ie the sun, you can see that here in the UK and most of Western Europe, we are in a lot of trouble and most of our population are wildly deficient. This is why the WHO and the NHS encourage a vitamin D supplement for the whole population.
This high strength 1 a day supplement is vegan friendly, small and easy to take.
