Use of the Natural Vitamin D3 2000IU Capsules
The classic vitamin D deficiency disease is rickets, Yet as fear of sun-exposure has grown and lifestyles have become more sedentary, exposure to the sun has dropped dramatically and vitamin D deficiency and the incidence of rickets have surged. The skin cannot create vitamin D if covered in sunscreen or clothing, it is thought that a sun cream with SPF15 will reduce the skin’s ability to synthesize vitamin D by more than 95%. Furthermore, many older people and those from the Asian community who tend to wear more modest clothing are amongst the population groups most like to suffer deficiency in vitamin D. Dietary sources include fortified foods, eggs, and fatty fish.
Most commonly-available Vitamin D3 supplements are derived from the lanolin in sheep’s wool, however, Vitamin D3 Viridian Nutrition’s is vegan and naturally-derived from lichen. Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth, muscle function, and immune function. Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption/utilization of calcium and phosphorus.
