The ‘sunshine’ vitamin
Vitamin D is naturally produced when the skin is exposed to sufficient amounts of sunlight. This essential vitamin is vital for the absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorous in the body. As a result, vitamin D plays a key role in maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D has also been shown to support a healthy immune system and normal muscle function. Unfortunately, vitamin D deficiencies are becoming increasingly common. A recent survey showed that nearly 2 in 3 adults living in the UK have low levels of this essential vitamin.
Why take vitamin D?
There are limited food sources of vitamin D, with the exception of milk and fortified foods. Plus, indoor lifestyle habits and the use of protective sunscreen mean that many people have insufficient exposure to natural sunlight. These make it nearly impossible for the skin to manufacture adequate levels of vitamin D.
Maintaining healthy vitamin D levels is essential for children and teenagers with growing bones and muscles. This 400iu strength vitamin D supplement is safe to be taken during pregnancy and by children over the age of 5 years old. Plus, as we age, the skin loses its ability to produce vitamin D as effectively as it once did, which can leave bones weak and fragile. For these reasons, experts recommend increased levels of vitamin D during childhood, pregnancy and for adults over the age of 55.

Our High Strength Vitamin D 400iu supplement is the perfect choice for those looking to support the maintenance of healthy bones and muscle function. Each of our easy-to-swallow 400iu (10 micrograms) tablets is Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) approved for complete quality assurance.

|Q:||Do you plan on selling vitamin D3?|
Studies show that vitamin D2 is just as effective as D3 when taken as lower strengths such as 400iu. Only when taken at super strengths between 1000iu and 2000iu, is vitamin D3 better absorbed by the body.
Following these guidelines, we offer a Vitamin D2 400iu, and a separate Super Strength Vitamin D3 2000iu supplement.
