Solgar Vitamin D3 2200 IU
Solgar have developed a premium vitamin D3 supplement which is extremely convenient to use and highly effective. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D3 offers a broad range of health benefits beyond the role it plays in bone health and bone growth.
Research suggests this key nutrient may also have a positive impact on heart and arterial health, immune system function, maintenance of healthy glucose levels and cognitive performance. Older adults are at increased risk of developing a deficiency in this nutrient. This is partly because, as they age, skin cannot synthesize vitamin D as efficiently. As well as this, they are likely to spend more time indoors and they may not have adequate intake of the vitamin from dietary sources. Hence, supplementation is often necessary.
