Blooms Vitamin D3 1000iu 400c
Vitamin D3 - 1000IU - 400 capsules
Henry Blooms Vitamin D3 promotes Calcium absorption which is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin D deficiency is common in Australia particularly in the age group where osteoporosis is a risk. Vitamin D assists with the absorption of Calcium. Stronger muscles and bones can help reduce the risk of falls in the elderly and reduce fractures. Vitamin D3 is the most absorbable form of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is required for the regulation of the minerals Calcium and Phosphorus found in the body. This regulation plays an important role in maintaining the proper bone structure and healthy teeth. Vitamin D helps with Calcium absorption; a diet deficient in Calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life. It has also been found that the occurrence of osteoarthritis is linked to low blood levels of Vitamin D. Supplementation of Vitamin D also leads to an increase in muscle strength thus helping to reduce falls in older people.
Vitamin D is mainly produced in our skin by a reaction that requires sunlight. Vitamin D is found in low levels in food thus requiring exposure to the sun to receive required amounts. There are two types of Vitamin D – Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (colecalciferol). Vitamin D2 is produced in plants and enters the body through diet. Vitamin D3 is thought to be more bioactive than Vitamin D2 and is used in Blooms Vitamin D3 1000IU. There is growing evidence to suggest that the required daily amount of Vitamin D required is 1000 IU, the amount found in one capsule.
