A 2011 study concluded that “D3 is approximately 87% more potent than Vitamin D2.". A 2006 article concluded that "Vitamin D2 should no longer be regarded as a nutrient appropriate for supplementation or fortification of foods.”
Vitamin D is quite rightly in the news on a near daily basis, with new research being published all of the time linking it to a wide range of health benefits.
VegD3® offers all of the benefits of Vitamin D. It is in the form of D3 (Cholecalciferol), which is the form the body naturally produces. VegD3® is of 100% plant-source, making it suitable for everyone including Vegans and Vegetarians.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body to use calcium from the diet. It is also essential for immunity, hearth health and much more. Vitamin D deficiency is almost at crisis point with many areas reporting 70%+ deficiency!
