Vitamin D is otherwise known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’ for it is naturally produced by the body when your skin is exposed to sunlight, specifically ultraviolet B rays (UVB) which convert cholesterol in the skin into Vitamin D. However there are many reasons why some people do not get enough or produce the optimum levels of Vitamin D, because:
With Vitamin D playing a vital role in supporting healthy bones and could even slow down the progression of Osteoporosis, Swanson has manufactured Vitamin D3, a potent form of the nutrient to help you boost and optimise your levels of this essential vitamin.
Swanson Vitamin D3 contains 5,000IU in an easy to swallow softgel.
Vitamin D is important as it plays an essential role in supporting healthy bone development and maintenance. Vitamin D helps to regulate blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, which helps to build strong bones and teeth.
There are a few natural dietary sources of Vitamin D with many cereals fortified with a balance of nutrients, but fish such as herring, salmon and tuna are also rich in Vitamin D. Together with spending time outdoors in the sunshine, around 20-30 minutes, 2-3 times a week for the average fair skinned person and eating a balanced and healthy diet it is possible to ensure your body is being supplied with good amounts of vitamin D.
However the current recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin D is between 200IU and 600IU for the average person, but experts are now suggest that this may not be enough and you should now aim for 1,000IU. To help ensure you are getting the optimum levels of Vitamin D in your diet, Swanson high potency Vitamin D3 soft gels are a great choice.
