Vitamin D3 5000iu with MCT

R 169

Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. Unlike any other vitamin, your body makes its own Vitamin D when skin is exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun. A modern indoor lifestyle and spending less time in the great outdoors has left most of the population Vitamin D deficient.

Vitamin D is needed primarily to keep your bones strong, heart and brain healthy, and your immune system fighting fit. Our product gives you a high potency dose, plus we added MCT oil powder to our Vitamin D capsules. This provides a fatty acid base for superior absorption, meaning your body quickly converts it into energy.

      60veg caps - One vegetarian capsule provides:

      Vitamin D3                5000IU

      MCT powder             350mg

      Medium Chain Triglyceride powder

      Other ingredients: vegetarian capsules and microcrystalline fibre

      Source:  Lanolin

      Directions:

      As a food supplement, take 1 capsule daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Take with your meals to help increase absorption. 

      NOTES: Our vitamin D3 is derived from lanolin, a natural oil produced by sheep’s wool.  It is therefore not suitable for vegans, and some vegetarians may choose to avoid it as well. If taking a higher dose of Vitamin D3 - please do regular blood test to determine levels of Vitamin D in the body.

      Vitamin D is needed primarily to keep your bones strong, your heart and brain healthy, and your immune system fighting-fit.

      Unique features:

      We used a filler of MCT oil powder (medium chain triglycerides).  MCT consists our of short chain fatty acids that is absorbed easily.  We added the MCT to the capsule to provide a fatty acid base for the Vitamin D for superior absorption.

      More on Vitamin D

      Vitamin D is technically a hormone which is produced within the body when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from the sun.  The body goes through a number of chemical processes to change it so that your it can be used.

      If you take supplements or eat foods that contain vitamin D, the gut also sends the vitamin D to the liver.  From here the liver changes it to a substance called 25(OH)D.  This chemical is sent all over the body where different tissues, including the kidney, turn it into activated Vitamin D.

      Serum Concentration of 25(OH)D is the best indicator of vitamin D status.  It serves as a biomarker of effect, but do not indicate the amount of Vitamin D stored in body tissues.

      The activated vitamin D works in two ways:

       

      Vitamin D and other nutrients:

      To get the most benefit from Vitamin D, the following co-factors are needed:

      • Magnesium
      • Vitamin K
      • Zinc
      • Boron
      • Vitamin A

       

      Testing for Vitamin D - what does the results mean?

      When you get your test results you will see a number in units of ng/ml, for example, 50 ng/ml. These are the units that health professionals in the United States use. Elsewhere in the world, vitamin D blood test results are given in units of nmol/l.

      To convert a test result measured in nmol/l to one measured in ng/ml, divide the nmol/l number by 2.5. For example, 50 nmol/l is the same as 20 ng/ml (50÷2.5).

      To convert a test result measured in ng/ml to one measured in nmol/l, multiply the ng/ml number by 2.5. For example, 20 ng/ml is the same as 50 nmol/l (20 x 2.5).

      These are the ranges that different organizations in the United States use to say whether you’re severely lacking in vitamin D (deficient), mildly lacking in vitamin D (insufficient) or whether you’re getting enough vitamin D (sufficient):

      Vitamin D Council

      Endocrine Society

      Food and Nutrition Board

      Testing Laboratories

      Deficient

      0-30 ng/ml

      0-20 ng/ml

      0-11 ng/ml

      0-31 ng/ml

      Insufficient

      31-39 ng/ml

      21-29 ng/ml

      12-20 ng/ml

      Sufficient

      40-80 ng/ml

      30-100 ng/ml

      >20 ng/ml

      32-100 ng/ml

      Toxic

      >150 ng/ml

      Vitamin D 25(OH)D range guidelines from various organizations:

      The Vitamin D Council suggests that a level of 50 ng/ml is the ideal level to aim for. This is why the Council recommends that adults take 5,000 IU/day of vitamin D supplement in order to reach and stay at this level.

      The Endocrine Society recommends taking a vitamin D supplement of around 2,000 IU/day to reach and stay above a level of 30 ng/ml. This is what the Endocrine Society recommends as the ideal level to aim for. Lastly, the Food and Nutrition Board recommends 600 IU/day of vitamin D supplement because they believe 20 ng/ml is the ideal level to aim for.
