This product provides 1000 or 2000 IU vitamin D3 per drop. It contains natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which is obtained through UV-B radiation from lanolin (sheep). Subsequently, the vitamin D is dissolved in a coconut oil extract with a high content in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s). By choosing for a suspension of a purified MCT and vitamin D3, the effectivity of the dissolved vitamin D3 is being increased. This is because the MCT’s can pass directly from the intestines to the liver so extra digestion from enzymes is not necessary. This is why Vitaplex vitamin D3 can be absorbed very fast into the liver. There, the first step takes place to produce the active form of vitamin D, the form 1,25 di-hydroxyl-vitamin D.
Recommended intake: daily one drop or as required.
The body itself can produce vitamine D under the influence of sunlight. An adequate exposure of sunlight is therefore necessary. Many people do not get enough exposure to the sun which may lead to a Vitamin D deficiency. The risk is extra high in the winter time because the sun has insufficient power and we are not as often outside as during the summer months. Vitamin D3 supplement drops offer an effective and simple solution to counteract this shortage. It is known that we need calcium for our teeth and strong bones. Vitamin D increases the uptake of calcium and other minerals. We do not only need vitamin D for our skeleton, it also plays an important role in our immune system and for our muscle strength. Vitamin D has double effects in the prevention of (bone) fractures: stronger bones at the one side and lower chances on bone fractures due to falling because of increased muscle strength on the other side. Vitaplex vitamin D3 liquid is a pure product of high pharmaceutical quality without any artificial additives.
