Pharma Nord Bio-Vitamin D3

The Sunshine Vitamin

Pharma Nord Bio-Vitamin D3 contains vitamin D3 dissolved in cold-pressed olive oil and encapsulated in small, easy-to-swallow 'pearls' of soft gelatine.

Vitamin D contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth and bones, supports normal muscle functioning and plays a role in cell division and specialisation.

When UV rays in the form of sunshine hit the skin, the active form of vitamin D is formed. The body's ability to produce vitamin D is reduced with age, however the vitamin D synthesis is inhibited by lack of sunshine or covering up with clothes. Pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, young children, elderly people and those with dark skin may also require supplemental vitamin D due to inadequate UV exposure.

The majority of vitamin D in the body is created during skin exposure to sunlight but many people in Northern Europe and the USA do not get adequate exposure. Nutritional sources of vitamin D include egg yolk, fish oils and oily fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel although amounts are small.

Pharma Nord's Vitamin D3 supplement is specially formulated in gel 'pearls.' Their preparation is dissolved in cold pressed organic olive oil to enhance absorption. It contains the cholecalciferol form of D3, which is produced naturally in the skin.

How does vitamin D3 work?
Vitamin D3 increases the absorption of calcium from food and reduces the excretion of calcium from the body. These effects ensure that calcium levels are maintained and allow adequate levels to be stored in bones and teeth. If blood calcium levels are too low, calcium may be mobilised from bones for use elsewhere in the body, resulting in bone weakening.

Vitamin D3 is also responsible for maintaining healthy muscles and nerves, and for maintaining a healthy immune system.

The UK government recommends vitamin D3 supplementation for several key groups of people including all pregnant and breast-feeding mothers, all young children from 6 months to 5 years old, people over 65 years of age and those with low or no exposure to the sun.
