Solgar ® Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 4000 IU (100 µg) Vegetable Capsules is a premium formula delivering vitamin D in the form that is easiest to use by the body – D3. Supporting immune health and daily wellbeing, the benefits of the “sunshine vitamin” are numerous and well documented, but particularly for immune and bone health.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes calcium absorption, which helps to maintain healthy bones and teeth. Solgar’s Vitamin D3 is one of the highest strength vitamin Ds available. Vitamin D3 is the more potent form of vitamin D compared to vitamin D2. Obtained from the sunlight or vitamin D rich foods - over a billion people worldwide have very low levels of vitamin D.
Older adults are at risk for suboptimal vitamin D status or deficiency mainly because aging skin can lose its efficiency in producing vitamin D from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Older adults are also less able to convert vitamin D into its active form.
Individuals following plant-based diets are also more vulnerable to vitamin D deficiency as are those with darker complexions due to natural content of melanin in their skin, which impedes vitamin D production.
Changing your diet and lifestyle along with taking a vitamin D supplement is a good way to top up, especially in winter months, if your vitamin D levels are low.
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Normal function of the immune system
- Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Normal absorption of calcium and phosphorus
- Contributes to normal blood calcium levels
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
