Vitamin D3 400iu
- Each tablet provides 10µg (400iu equivalent) vitamin D3
- One-a-day , veggie friendly tablets
- For immune system support
- Maintains bone, teeth and muscle health
These tablets provide the amount of Vitamin D that the Government has said everyone should consider taking as a supplement during the autumn and winter. This is due to a concern that diet and sunshine alone may not provide sufficient Vitamin D for the body’s needs. Vitamin D is found in some foods but for most people it is the action of sunlight on skin that produces most of the body’s requirements. But it is now recognised that our modern ‘indoor’ life and our cloudy climate means that Vitamin D deficiencies are now common in the UK population. The Government have identified several groups of people at particular risk of deficiency.
There are an increasing number of health concerns linked to Vitamin D deficiency and the newspapers have been widely reporting each new piece of research.
This is a good product to choose if you are already taking one of our Multis, (most of which also have 400iu of Vitamin D) or if you do get some sun exposure and just want to top up your Vitamin D. However if you get very little sun then we recommend you consider taking our higher strength Vitamin D 1000iu product.
Our straight vitamin D products are the preferred form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and we insist on British Pharmacopoeia (BP) grade material. It’s this form that that is made in the human body.
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Maintenance of normal bone and teeth
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
- Normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response
