Vitamin D, known as the “Sunshine Vitamin” is an important vitamin which the body can synthesize through exposure to sunlight.
Current advice to minimize exposure to the suns rays in order to minimize risk of skin damage by the sun also makes it more difficult to get enough sunshine to produce Vitamin D naturally.
Vitamin D works with Calcium in the body by supporting its absorption and helping the body make use of Calcium.
So why are Vitamin D and Calcium Important?
Both help to support maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function. In addition, Calcium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, neurotransmission, blood clotting and the normal function of digestive enzymes whilst vitamin D supports normal function of the immune system and has a role in the process of cell division.
AquaSource believes that the body always processes naturally sourced foods far better than synthetic products. We always therefore deliver Vitamins and minerals from totally natural sources with as little interference or processing as possible.
The best possible source of Vitamin D we have found is Organic Mushroom Powder which provides a very pure and potent form of vitamin D2 and is grown without pesticides and is minimally processed to provide an organically certified powder that is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Red Algae (sp.Lithothamnion) were chosen as it is a rare and unique type of algae found off the coast of Ireland that is known as ‘nature’s perfect source of calcium’.
So who would benefit from Vitamin D supplementation? Well it is believed that up to 50% of the global population may not be getting enough Vitamin D, but specific groups that may particularly benefit include:
• all pregnant and breastfeeding women
• babies and young children under the age of five
• older people aged 65 years and over
• people who are not exposed to much sun, such as people who cover up their skin when outdoors, or those who are housebound or confined indoors for long periods people who have darker skin such as people of African, African-Caribbean and South Asian origin
