Vitamin D is important for strong and healthy bones and teeth, and is obtained from exposure to sunlight as well as foods such as eggs and oily fish. It defends your body against osteoporosis (brittle bones) and osteomalacia (softened bones), regulates levels of calcium and phosphate, and can also help to protect the cardiovascular, muscular and immune systems.
Most vitamin D supplements are actually inactive, as the vitamin precursors are processed in the kidneys and liver to form 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), which is the inactive "storage" form.
This Vibrant Food State supplement is different, as it contains potent active metabolites in the form of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), the biologically active form. This has been verified by the Linus Pauling Institute. Vitamin D is a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant.
In adults, a lack of vitamin D may cause or worsen conditions such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, bone fractures, muscle weakness, common cancers, autoimmune illnesses, cardiovascular disease and various infectious diseases. Vitamin D is also a fat-soluble antioxidant.
Most vitamin D supplements are actually inactive. D3 and D2 precursors are both hydroxylated in the liver and kidneys to create 25- hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), which is the non-active 'storage' form of the vitamin. This Vibrant Food State vitamin D supplement has active metabolites as 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), the biologically active form. This has been validated by the Linus Pauling Institute.
On average, each tablet provides 1,000iu of vitamin D.
