About

Vitamin D is required for the regulation of the minerals Calcium and Phosphorus found in the body. This regulation plays an important role in maintaining the proper bone structure and healthy teeth. Vitamin D helps with Calcium absorption; a diet deficient in Calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life. It has also been found that the occurrence of osteoarthritis is linked to low blood levels of Vitamin D. Supplementation of Vitamin D also leads to an increase in muscle strength thus helping to reduce falls in older people.

Vitamin D is mainly produced in our skin by a reaction that requires sunlight. Vitamin D is found in low levels in food thus requiring exposure to the sun to receive required amounts. There are two types of Vitamin D Ė Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (colecalciferol). Vitamin D2 is produced in plants and enters the body through diet. Vitamin D3 is thought to be more bioactive than Vitamin D2 and is used in Blooms Vitamin D3 1000IU. There is growing evidence to suggest that the required daily amount of Vitamin D required is 1000 IU, the amount found in one capsule.

Recent research has found that Australians have low blood levels of Vitamin D. 23% of women are marginally deficient in Vitamin D while 80% of dark skin and veiled women have a marked deficiency. It is also reported that, the average estimated dietary intake of Vitamin D is ten times lower than recommended levels. A limit to exposure in sunlight has been thought to account for the reduction of Vitamin D.

Supplementation provides the required amount which is unattainable from diet alone and without the dangers of exposure to sunlight.

Ingredients

Each soft gel capsule contains:
Colecalciferol 25 mcg (1000 IU)

Tips

Vitamin D3 is more effective in raising blood levels of Vitamin D than Vitamin D2

Cautions & Interactions
Vitamin D is contraindicated to those who have hypercalcemia and those with evidence of Vitamin D toxicity. Dosages of up to 60 mcg rarely cause adverse effects; however, dosages of over 100 mcg may cause hypercalcemia.

Pregnant and Breastfeeding
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not exceed the upper tolerable limit of 3200 IU (80 mcg).

Firstly I would like to apologise for our website being down for the past month due to technical issues. I hope everyone is staying healthy through these difficult times. Winter is approaching and we have a bevy of natural products that can help protect your immune system from colds and flu. Herbs such as Andrographis, Astragulus, Echinacea, Eldeberry, Garlic, Olive Leaf, Sambucus and of course Vitamin C and Zinc can make all the difference. Glucosamine and Chondroitin, Fish and Flaxseed Oils high in Omegas can alleviate some of the stiffness in the body. Tea Tree Oil can be beneficial as an antibacterial agent throughout the house and also for your Skin Care. Stay safe and well.
