New Vitamin D3 supplements from Jan de Vries give you the option of restoring vitamin D3 levels if they are low, or simply topping up
Unlike most other vitamins, our body is able to make its own vitamin D when skin is exposed to sunlight, which is why it’s often referred to as the sunshine vitamin.
But vitamin D deficiency is relatively common in the UK, and not just during the winter months when sunlight can be in short supply.
Other factors such as ethnicity, diet, age and weight, can all predispose a person to vitamin D deficiency.
Jan de Vries Vitamin D3 2500iu provides a potent, daily dose of 2500iu, equivalent to 62.5 µg D3, per vegetarian tablet.
It’s designed to help improve levels of vitamin D in the event of deficiency or if levels are low.
Vitamin D is needed for bone health, teeth and muscles, immunity and low mood. It also helps to regulate calcium levels within the body and contributes to normal uptake of calcium and phosphorus and the maintenance of normal levels of calcium in the blood.
It’s important all year round but especially so during the winter months, when your immune system may be in need of additional support.
A fat-soluble vitamin, meaning it dissolves in fats, not water, vitamin D can be stored in the body for long periods of time.
A vitamin D supplement is often the preferred way to increase levels of vitamin D, especially if deficiency is diagnosed
Just need a D3 top-up? Jan de Vries Vitamin D3 1000iu tablets provide a maintenance or top-up dose of 1000iu, equivalent to 25 µg D3, per vegetarian tablet.
You would take D3 1000iu for all the same reasons as you would vitamin D3 2500iu, but as a top-up to dietary vitamin D, naturally sourced vitamin D (from sufficient sun exposure) or just to supplement your intake of vitamin D from a broad spectrum multivitamin or other supplement also providing vitamin D.
Jan de Vries Vitamin D3 2500iu and D3 1000iu are two of five new supplements in the Jan de Vries range of natural and holistic healthcare products.
They cost £8.00 for 60 tablets and £7.00 for 90 tablets respectively and are available from health stores nationwide and online from Jan de Vries.
