Many people who live in countries with low levels of sunlight (including the UK) have been reported to have low levels of Vitamin D. It has increasingly been identified as a key player in boosting immunity and supplementation is now recommended by Public Health England during the Winter months. Vitamin D also has a significant impact on the levels of calcium that the body can absorb. It is vital for bone density & helps to prevent against degenerative diseases like osteoporosis.
Wise Owl’s ‘Food State’ Vitamin D3 (2,000 iu) is a natural nutritional supplement in a whole food complex, for optimal absorption & utilisation. It also benefits from active metabolites which are necessary to activate vitamin D activity.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that can be produced within the body as well as from your diet. The human body can also make vitamin D from direct sunlight, or when an ultraviolet light source, hits the skin & triggers vitamin D synthesis.
Wise Owl has replaced its 1,000 iu capsules with 2,000 iu capsules to deliver a more convenient higher dose, with 2,000 iu being the upper daily limit for children and 4,000 iu (2 capsules) being the upper accepted daily limit for adults. Research is ongoing into the safety and efficacy of higher doses.
