This product is a high potency Vitamin D3 supplement suitable for vegetarians.
- One tablet provides 62.5µg (2,500i.u) of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) at 1250% of the NRV.
- Vitamin D3 is more efficacious at raising serum 25(OH)D concentrations and therefore calcitriol than is vitamin D2, and thus vitamin D3 is the preferred choice for supplementation (1).
- With the evidence of widespread deficiency within the UK population, it is essential that the most efficacious source of vitamin D is consumed through supplementation (2,3).
- Government has identified people at risk of deficiency and recommends that they take a Vitamin D supplement. Older adults are at high risk of developing vitamin D insufficiency because of aging. Their skin cannot synthesize vitamin D as efficiently, they are likely to spend more time indoors, and they may have inadequate intakes of the vitamin.
- Homebound individuals, women who wear long robes and head coverings for religious reasons, and people with occupations that limit sun exposure are unlikely to obtain adequate vitamin D from sunlight (4)
- Vitamin D summary, including EFSA health claims, is provided on page *
- People with dark skin may also be deficient in Vitamin D, this is due to the increased amount of pigment melanin reducing the skin's ability to produce vitamin D from sunlight (4)
- Individuals with reduced ability to absorb dietary fat might require vitamin D supplements because vitamin D is fat soluble and requires some dietary fat in the gut for absorption (4)
- Obese people may need larger than usual intakes of vitamin D to achieve 25(OH)D levels comparable to those of normal weight (4)
