Natural Factors Vitamin D3 is a new plant-based source of this essential nutrient, developed especially for vegans and vegetarians. Carefully extracted from lichen, it provides natural vitamin D in its most bioactive form, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
Vitamin D, known as the “sunshine vitamin”, is vital for bone development and immune system health. It facilitates efficient calcium utilization, which in turn helps form and maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also contributes to a healthy immune system. Since the chief dietary source of vitamin D is fish and fortified dairy products, strict vegetarians and vegans are often lacking in vitamin D. With 2000 IU in each capsule, Natural Factors Vitamin D3 helps meet individual vitamin D requirements when dietary intake or sun exposure is low.
This unique plant-based vitamin D3 is highly bioavailable. It is sourced from a unique species of non-GMO lichen which has the ability to produce vitamin D in the natural D3 form. Vitamin D3 is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body. The lichen is wild-harvested and extracted in a sustainable manner, and carefully processed to ensure optimum purity and stability. Natural vitamin D3 is the bioactive form of vitamin D and is necessary for the efficient utilization of calcium, in turn helping to form and maintain strong bones and a healthy immune system. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet, and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.
