What is Vitamin D3?

Vitamin D is synthesised in the skin via exposure to sunlight hence it is often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin’. There are two forms of Vitamin D; D2 and D3. Research tends to show the D3 version as being far superior to the D2 version and our nutrition experts insist on using vitamin D3 in all Healthspan formulations as this is the form that is naturally found in the human body.

Vitamin D benefits

As we age, we are thought to be more at risk of vitamin D deficiency because our skin's ability to convert vitamin D into its active form decreases.

Vitamin D has received extensive coverage in the media recently and new research shows that optimum intake levels may be far higher than originally thought. New Public Health England report recommends vitamin D supplements should be taking by all. 

The benefits are wide and varied, including its role in the maintenance of normal muscle function and in supporting a healthy immune system. However, vitamin D is probably best known for the role it plays in supporting healthy bones and teeth as it aids in the efficient absorption of calcium. 

Each Super Strength tablet contains 25µg (1,000iu) of vitamin D3 in its natural form.

I like to keep taking vitamin D in the winter but will stop taking it when I am able to be outside in the garden and elsewhere. I take several of your supplements but I'm not sure if they really help. Recently I had to go to the hospital for a pre-operation check and had to take all medicines I was taking. The nurse put three aside and said don't take these at the moment because they have Zinc in them. Apparently too much zinc is not good. As I also have some just zinc tablets I will not take the Zinc anymore but unless you read all the small print which is Okay when you have 20/20 vision but my eyesight is far from that. This applies to most of the things I buy nowadays.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.

There's no way of telling whether vitamin pills are doing what they should but they look like the ones I had before so I must assume they are good

As usual, Healthspans efficient service delivered my order quickly. And as they are a trusted supplier of quality goods, I know the product is of top quality

20 March 2017

Advised by GP to take Vitamin D as blood tests indicated deficiency. So far seems to be helping with Restless Legs.

It's lovely to hear how well the product is working for you.

A good dose, at a good price. Absorbed best if taken with a fatty meal and works in conjunction with Magnesium and vitamin K2 to promote calcium uptake bones

19 March 2017

only time will tell,but its only for winter use !

My husband is prescribed ProD3 and as I have already broken an ankle in the past I have desire to repeat it. With little sunshine in the winter I thought it would be a good idea to take these.
