Vitamin D is a precursor hormone — the building block of a powerful steroid hormone in your body called calcitriol. As a hormone, calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function in the body.
For centuries, Vitamin D was considered to be only essential to maintaining bone health, but recently more and more studies are linking Vitamin D to overall body wellness. The average healthy body can naturally synthesize about 10,000–15,000 IU of vitamin D3 in the skin within minutes of sun exposure, without ill effect. Sunscreen lotions above SPF 15 and glass windows block the essential UVB rays the body needs to synthesize this crucial vitamin. In these circumstances, taking a Vitamin D supplement every day is essential to maintaining good health and protecting the body from various potential illnesses.
The inclusion of coral not only provides 10% RDA for calcium, but also doubles as the flowing agent so no artificial fillers, flowing agents, or excipents are used. Vitamin D3 is delivered in a very small number 4 vegetable capsule and is very easy to swallow.
Vitamin D is naturally produced by the human body when exposed to direct sunlight. Season, geographic latitude, time of day, cloud cover, smog, and sunscreen affect UV ray exposure and vitamin D synthesis in the skin, and it is important for individuals with limited sun exposure to include good sources of vitamin D in their diet.
Vitamin D3 is safe for vegetarians and dairy, gluten, and soy-free. It contains NO milk, soy, yeast, wheat, gluten, sodium, salt, sugar, starch, fat, cholesterol, oil, emulsifier, wax, binder, filler, excipients, lubricant, coating, diluents, flowing agent, common allergen, colour, flavour, sweetener, or preservative.
