Our vegan-friendly vitamin D3 is a unique supplement with enhanced bioavailability compared to vitamin D2, making it beneficial for kids. Sourced from non-GMO algae, it undergoes testing to ensure it is chemically identical to vitamin D3 derived from animal products.
Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin, is essential for various bodily systems, including bone health, immune function, and mood regulation. It plays a crucial role in calcium absorption, promoting strong bones and reducing the risk of fractures.
Vitamin D also supports immune function by activating T cells to detect and destroy foreign pathogens. Supplementing with vitamin D has been linked to improved immunity for illnesses like influenza, tuberculosis, and respiratory tract infections. Adequate vitamin D levels are associated with reduced severity of symptoms and outcomes from COVID-19.
In addition, vitamin D plays a role in mood regulation. Low levels of vitamin D have been associated with depressive disorders, and supplementation may help alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and mental health issues.
There are two forms of natural vitamin D: D2 and D3. Research shows that D3, or cholecalciferol, is more potent and effective in raising active vitamin D levels in the body compared to D2. While most dietary vitamin D3 comes from animal sources, our vegan-friendly supplement provides an alternative for those who avoid animal foods.
Traditional vegan vitamin D supplements often contain vitamin D2, but our products will always and only contain vegan vitamin D3. One serving provides 500% of the recommended daily intake, addressing potential deficiencies, especially during seasons with limited sunlight exposure.
