Vitamin D has many roles in the body including supporting immune system health, maintaining the right balance of calcium and phosphorus in the blood, and especially helping us absorb enough calcium in our bones and teeth to keep them healthy and strong. This convenient Vitamin D3 Spray produced by Garden of Life in collaboration with Alicia Silverstone furnishes an ample 1,000 IU dose of an effective vegan form of Vitamin D in a yummy vanilla flavour.
Even though we produce it ourselves when exposed to the sun, many of us don't get outdoors enough during the daylight hours, or we're all covered up (including with UV protection), or we live in northern latitudes, or we have very dark skin tone, or our ability to synthesize it diminishes as we age. In such cases, supplementation is advised, not only for the bones' sake, but also because Vitamin D deficiencies have been associated with muscle weakness, gum disease, depression, and more.
Finally: a vegan, whole food vitamin D3 formula that's both Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, in a tasty vanilla spray! As the name implies, it supplies D3 or cholecalciferol -- the same potent and active form of fat-soluble vitamin D that the body naturally produces itself, after sufficient sun exposure (which so many of us lack) -- carried in a base of Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil and Organic Cranberry Seed Oil to optimize its absorption.
While this great vitamin D supplement is appropriate for everyone, it should especially be of interest to vegans and vegetarians, since most D3 supplements are sourced from animals (while this one comes from lichen, a complex form of fungus, which sometimes grows on rocks or trees), and most vegetarian vitamin D supplements are in the form of ergocalciferol, or vitamin D2. In fact, mykind Organics Vegan D3 is the only type of vitamin D3 currently registered with both the Vegan Society and Vegetarian Society.
