Vitamin D3 1000iu
High strength, one-a-day capsules
Our bodies obtain Vitamin D from two sources, our diet and from the action of sunlight on our skin which drives the natural production within the body. If we all had plenty of sun then we would have plenty of Vitamin D, but in reality we do need to obtain some from our diet, particularly during the winter months and particularly in the elderly as the body’s ability to manufacture Vitamin D declines with age. This is why the Government has identified five groups of people at risk of deficiency and recommends that they take a Vitamin D supplement.
The Government has made this recommendation because there is growing evidence that Vitamin D deficiencies are linked to a number of major health concerns that have been widely written about in the press.
Some of the many functions of Vitamin D include:
- Plays a vital role in the maintenance of normal bone health
- Is involved in the normal function of the immune system
- Contributes to normal muscle function
The recommendation from the Government for the at risk groups is to take a supplement of 400iu (10mcg) per day which is why we put this amount in most of our Multis. However our view is that this 1000iu product is a better choice, costs just 5p/day and is safe for long term use.
- Fantastic value - less than 5p a day
- High potency - one-a-day formula
- UK made to Pharmaceutical GMP standards
