Viridian Vitamin D 2000iu
The skin cannot create vitamin D if covered in sunscreen or clothing. It is thought that a sun cream with SPF15 or more will reduce the skin’s ability to synthesize vitamin D by more than 95%.
Furthermore, many older people, those with dark skin or who tend to wear more modest clothing are amongst the population groups that are most likely to suffer sub-optimal levels.
Dietary sources include fortified foods, eggs and fatty fish.
The most commonly-available Vitamin D3 supplements are derived from the lanolin in sheep’s wool, however Viridian Nutrition’s Vitamin D3 is vegan and naturally-derived from lichen.
It contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth, muscle function and immune function.
It also contributes to the normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus.
