4 Pack :: Zwell Organic Vitamin D3
Natural & Organic
Zwell Organic Vitamin D3 is an organic, wholefood dietary supplement approved by Health Canada (NPN # 80006029) for the maintenance of good health and to help in the absorption of calcium.
Vitamin D deficiency can lead to such health problems as osteoporosis, decreased immunity, and reduced ability to fight influenza. This all natural, certified organic, food source, Vitamin D3 supplement is of the highest quality available.
Our bodies require Vitamin D in order to absorb calcium and phosphorus, two nutrients essential to strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D is synthesized in the body from sunlight. But due to our geographical location in the fall & winter seasons and use of sunscreen in the spring & summer, the body’s ability to produce optimal Vitamin D naturally is severely inhibited.
All these factors combined as well as evidence that Vitamin D plays a significant role in cancer prevention and heart health; make it imperative for everyone to take a Vitamin D supplement, to ensure optimal levels in the body.
Currently, Health Canada recommends daily supplementation of 400 IU of Vitamin D to prevent deficiency. Recently, numerous studies have pointed to the benefits of supplementing with much higher amounts of vitamin D, and this is particularly important for Canadians. Prominent nutritional scientists are calling for an increase to a minimum of 1000 IU per day - some suggesting the optimal level is closer to 2,000IU to 5,000IU per day.
Zwell’s Organic Vitamin D3 bio-transformed into wholefood D3 using a fermentation process involving nutritional yeast. The yeast is able to digest the D3 and absorb it into their system, thereby converting it into wholefood nutrients. Some experts would agree this qualifies this product as vegetarian, similar to the mechanism a plant uses to extract nutrients from animal fertilizers and the soil. This active vitamin D3 is then mixed with organic sweet potato, creating a certified organic Vitamin D3 (Cholcalciferol) that is highly active, and delivered in a form that our bodies can most easily absorb and utilize.
