Lamberts Vitamin D3 400iu (10ug) Capsules (120)
Our bodies obtain vitamin D
(which, strictly speaking is a steroid hormone)
from two sources, our diet and from the action of
sunlight on our skin which drives the natural production
within the body. If we all had plenty of sun then we would
have plenty of vitamin D, but in reality we do need to
obtain some from our diet, particularly during the winter
months and particularly in the elderly as the body's ability
to manufacture vitamin D declines with age.
Indeed as many as 60 percent of the UK population is
vitamin D deficient and low levels have been linked to
serious health problems in later life.
This is not surprising when one considers the fact that it is
involved in the expression of more than 1000 genes.
So whilst it is renowned for its vital role in the maintenance of
normal bone health, in reality it actually acts on cells in every
organ of the body and has extremely far-reaching effects on human health.
Each tablet of Lamberts® Vitamin D provides 400iu
(in the vitamin D3 form), which is twice the RDA and
the level often recommended.
