Platinum Naturals Vitamin D3 1000IU
Vitamin D3 can provide many substantial health benefits including stronger bones as it improves your body's natural ability to absorb calcium, immune support, cardiovascular health and the prevention of Vitamin D deficiency. Getting enough vitamin D, however, is a challenge especially in northern climates. While vitamin D2 can be found in fortified foods like milk, juices and cereals, the body requires sunlight in order to produce essential vitamin D3.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble substance, which means that a base of fat/oil is an ideal carrier to supply vitamin D to the body.
The question is ‘which oil to choose?’
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) provides a distinct advantage for people wanting to ensure optimal absorption of their vitamin D supplement. MCTs are absorbed passively from the gut requiring no energy, enzymes, or bile to be absorbed. Compared to Long Chain Triglycerides, which must be absorbed via the lymphatic system, MCTs are absorbed directly from the G.I. tract into the portal vein by passing the slower lymphatic absorption path of LCT. Thus, improving the absorption of Vitamin D.
Platinum Naturals’ Vitamin D3 provides you with 1,000 IUs of vitamin D that is free of additives and is suspended in coconut-based oils for easy absorption.
