What is this?

Often referred to as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is not really a vitamin at all. Vitamins are nutrients the body cannot produce itself and must be obtained through foods. Vitamin D however is considered a prohormone that can be synthesised by the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D plays a significant role in calcium absorption which is important for healthy bones and teeth, it also plays a role in the expression of over 1000 genes.

Our modern lifestyle means many people have a lack of sunlight exposure. Vitamin D is not commonly found in most people's diets, although it can be boosted with fatty fish and eggs. This combination means many people are deficient, leaving them with low energy, aches, pains and a compromised immune and hormonal system. Low levels of Vitamin D can also lead to reduced levels of oxytocin and serotonin in the brain, causing many people to experience seasonal depression.

Puori have created an ideal way to supplement your Vitamin D with their D3 capsules. Puori D3 is a high quality source of Vitamin D derived from purified sheep’s lanolin (wool), this is then mixed with organic virgin coconut oil to aid absorption. Vitamin D can degrade when exposed to sunlight so Puori have contained it in clever, dark soft gels and bottles. 1x D3 softgel contains a massive 62.5µg (micrograms) of Vitamin D3 to combat even the darkest of climates.

Suggested use

Take one capsule daily, preferably with a meal.

As with everything we recommend you should aim to get your vitamins through proper diet and lifestyle. Although some studies have shown that 4000 IU (international units) of vitamin D daily was enough to bring deficient people up to adequate levels, 4000iu is considerably over the recommended daily allowance.

It is difficult to gauge how much vitamin D a person requires, if you think you might be deficient we would recommend consulting your doctor and taking a blood test.

People whose blood tested between 40-60 ng/ml have the lowest all cause mortality.
