- Vitamin D helps calcium absorption
- May reduce the risk of osteoporosis in older adults
- Supports healthy immune function
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin, which is of interest for the calcium and phosphorus uptake. The amount of 25 mcg is equivalent to 1000 IU. Vitamin D helps to build and maintain healthy bones, maintain muscle strength and may help decrease the risk of falls and fractures in the elderly. It also assists in calcium absorption and supports healthy immune function.
People with insufficient vitamin D levels may experience such health concerns as osteoporosis, increased hair loss, muscle weakness, and reduced immune function. Seniors, children under 4 years, pregnant women, people with darker skin and those who do not get enough sunlight on the skin have an increased need for vitamin D. Therefore, they need to supplement vitamin D daily. The most natural and active form of vitamin D is vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). NaturallyCanadian vitamin D3 contains 25mcg (1000IU) of the highest quality cholecalciferol.
