Bio-Vitamin D3 (D-Pearls)

80-Capsules

£6.95

Pharma Nord's Bio-Vitamin D3 can be obtained in two forms, ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3). The cholecalciferol form of vitamin D3 is metabolised approximately three-fold more effectively within the body than the ergocalciferol form.

Vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) is a fat soluble vitamin, produced within the body when the skin is exposed to uv radiation from sunlight. People living in northern latitude countries such as the UK are at risk of vitamin D deficiency, particularly during the winter months. Darker skinned ethnic minorities and the elderly are especially at risk.

Vitamin D3 increases the absorption of calcium from the digestive tract, and reduces the excretion of calcium, thereby helping to regulate blood calcium levels. These effects ensure that calcium levels are maintained and allow adequate levels to be stored in bones and teeth. If blood calcium levels are too low, calcium may be mobilised from bones for use elsewhere in the body, resulting in bone weakening.

In addition to maintaining healthy bones and teeth, vitamin D3 also contributes to the normal functioning of the muscles and immune system.

Benefits of Pharm Nord Bio-Vitamin D3:

  • Contains four strengths of Vitamin D3, in oil-based capsule form for enhanced absorption.
  • Contains a form of vitamin D (cholecalciferol) naturally produced in the skin.
  • Halal certified.
  • Capsule: The preparation has the form of a clear round soft gelatine 7mm capsule with light green olive oil.
  • Manufactured to pharmaceutical standards.

Dosage: One to five capsules of Pharma Nord Bio-Vitamin D3 to be taken daily.


Side Effects: Vitamin D supplementation is generally well tolerated. People with hyperparathyroidism and sarcoidosis should not take vitamin D supplements without consulting a medical practitioner. People who receive adequate sunlight exposure do not need as much vitamin D in their diet as those who receive minimal exposure. Pregnant and lactating women and those on medication should seek professional advice prior to taking nutritional supplements.

Each tablet of Pharma Nord Bio-Vitamin D3 contains: Vitamin D3 800 iu, Organic Olive Oil, Organic gelatine, Glycerol, Purified Water.

Product Code: PND2163
