Vitamin D3 4,000 IU is the optimum level recommended by nutritionists to quickly correct deficiency. If you spend time training indoors or have limited exposure to natural sunlight you may be vitamin D deficient. Formulated using vitamin D3, the form of vitamin D most readily absorbed by the body, each small ‘easy-swallow’ capsule provides 4,000 IU of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 plays a number of important roles in the body including providing support for immune health, muscle health and bone health.

Vitamin D can be obtained through food sources such as eggs, fortified cereals and oily fish, but is predominantly synthesised in the skin through exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D deficiency is common across populations throughout the UK and as a result of a low level of exposure to sunlight, vitamin D synthesis becomes almost impossible in the winter.

Deficiency has also been observed amongst athletes including those who mainly train outdoors. This has a detrimental impact on bone health and may have wider health consequences which negatively affect athletic performance.

Vitamin D3 supplementation can play an important role in correcting vitamin D deficiency to ensure the maintenance of adequate to optimal levels.

Product Origins

The vitamin D in all our formulations is the naturally occurring D3 form (also known as cholecalciferol). Cholecalciferol is produced by processing 7-dehydrocholesterol which is extracted from the lanolin found in sheep's wool.

Lanolin is a waxy substance which helps protects the skin of sheep against rain and other environmental factors. It is extracted from wool grease and wool wax alcohols obtained from the cleaning of wool after the shearing of sheep. The lanolin is then purified which results in a substance called 7-dehydrocholesterol, the same precursor of vitamin D found in our skin. The 7-dehydrocholesterol is exposed to ultraviolet light, which replicates the chemical reaction occurring in our skin when we soak up sunlight. The final product is then stabilised on a powdered carrier to enable the manufacture of tablets.

The result of this extraction and purification process is a highly concentrated form of vitamin D3 which offers 99% purity and unparalleled quality.

What more can I say? Best in the market and the only one that provides the dosage my neurologist recommends (I have MS). I don't think I would trust anyone else.

Embarrassing packaging to receive through the post. Overall impression from the colour (gold and black??? really??) looks like condoms not a health product. Very embarrassing.

This is the only quality 4000iu/100 ug one tablet dose on the market, small size tablet too. If you may be deficient in Vit D (aren't we all living the UK?!) best product available - after lots of research!
