Vitamin D drops are liquid sunshine that supports everything under the sun.
Every cell has a vitamin D receptor, and some of the systems it helps optimize include: bone health, heart health, mood, and your overall vitality.
Odds are you’re not getting enough vitamin D. In fact, the CDC in America reports that as many as 23 million people have a “severe” deficiency, so nutrition authorities are beginning to recommend higher dosages. But that may present another problem entirely.
Vitamin D is an important steroid hormone in the body that helps to regulate mineral levels in the bone, kidneys, intestines, and liver. It plays a major role in calcium absorption, and both a deficiency, and excess, of this vitamin can lead to similar effects. Most of the calcium you consume should go to your bones and teeth, but it can end up in places you don’t want it to as well. A 2016 study shows that there is a strong association between extremely high levels of vitamin D and high levels of calcium. A review in the American Society of Nephrology indicates that when vitamin D and calcium concentrations get too high, calcium starts getting deposited in your arteries. In other words, a vitamin you’re taking to improve your health could actually end up harming it!†
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the form Vitamin D produced by the body after exposure to sunlight. Common vegetarian Vitamin D supplements are Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol), which is a derivative ofergosterol and is not produced by land plants or vertebrates. The healthy debate continues regardingwhether D2 offers equivalent efficacy to D3 in the body, with the majority of the scientific community suggesting Vitamin D3 is superior. Having reviewed a vast amount of published research, our conclusionis that Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the best form of Vitamin D for the body.
Our exclusive vegan Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) comes from a special, organic plant source called a Lichen. Lichens are small unique plant species consisting of a symbiotic association of a fungus with an algae. This gives them unique attributes such as surviving in extreme climates and having the ability to grow and accumulate meaningful levels of useful nutrients, including Vitamin D3!
This truly is vegan and vegetarian Vitamin D3 - an alternative to animal derived supplements such as cod liver oil for those following a vegan diet or a vegetarian diet.
