D-Pearls - The sunshine vitamin
What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D, normally found in food supplements as Vitamin D3, is a fat-soluble vitamin, obtained from the diet and is also synthesised in human skin when exposed to sunshine. It is very important for many aspects of human health, including the maintenance of strong and healthy bones and teeth, as well as the absorption and regulation of calcium and phosphorous. It is also needed for the normal function of the immune system and inflammatory response.
Recent studies have shown, however, that sunshine levels in most northern countries are too weak during the winter period for the body to produce enough vitamin D3. Some experts estimate that more than half the population in those areas have inadequate or perhaps even deficient levels of the nutrient.
Why should you take D-Pearls?
D-Pearls contain 38 ug (1520 IU) of Vitamin D3, dissolved in cold pressed olive oil. Supplementation is a very efficient and safe way to ensure that the body has sufficient levels of vitamin D, even during winter-time.
Supplementation with vitamin D3 is recommended for children, elderly, people with dark skin or people who spend the majority of their time indoors. In addition, in areas where there are extended periods of low sunlight, experts advise that almost everyone should use supplements to ensure sufficient levels of vitamin D3.
Already dissolved in fat
Because vitamin D3 is fat-soluble, it requires the presence of fat in the diet to be absorbed efficiently. The vitamin D3 in D-Pearls has already been dissolved in high-quality cold-pressed olive oil. This way, optimal absorption is ensured.
