Vitamin D3 1000iu, 120 v-caps.


100The Cost of Vitamin D Deficiency Vitamin D deficiency can result in rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Both conditions are characterized by inadequate bone mineralization. Vitamin D is essential for the efficient utilization of dietary calcium. Blood calcium levels are tightly regulated, and in a vitamin D deficient state, the amount of calcium absorbed is inadequate to satisfy the body’s requirements. This causes the body to release a hormone called PTH (parathyroid hormone) which activates bone breakdown to retrieve the much needed calcium. This results in osteopenia and osteoporosis. Additionally, PTH causes the kidneys to excrete phosphate and the overall net result is a decrease in calcium phosphate, the major mineral required for mineralizing bone. Bone building cells continue to deposit collagen matrix, resulting in rubbery matrix which expands upon hydration and causes pressure and a low grade unrelenting pain often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia. 1,25(OH) D is responsible not only for bone development and growth in children and maintenance of bone in adults, but also for the prevention of osteoporosis and fractures in the elderly. Vitamin D deficiency has also been associated with auto-immune disorders, weakened immunity, blood pressure and blood sugar imbalances, metabolic disturbances, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), mood changes, chronic pain, muscle function and more. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient, and shortages in the body are a risk for many people. With such a range of effects on health, getting an adequate amount of vitamin D is essential for people of all ages.

Product Description

AOR Vegan-Vitamin-D3-200x330Calcium Support from Vitamin D Calcium, the bone mineral, does not work alone. It depends on vitamin D to efficiently maintain bone health. Without enough vitamin D, the body cannot absorb enough calcium to meet its needs, so it begins to break down bone in order to access calcium stores. This leads to bone disorders such as osteoporosis. Are You at Risk for Deficiency? The body synthesizes vitamin D in response to sunlight exposure, but this is not enough to meet the body’s requirements. Studies have found that large portions of the population are vitamin D deficient, especially in northern latitudes. While elderly people are most at risk, deficiency can be a problem in all age groups. Besides bone disorders, vitamin D insufficiency is linked to muscle weakness, PMS, mood imbalances, immune disorders, cardiovascular and cognitive disorders and more. A True Vegan Vitamin D3 Most supplemental vitamin D3 comes from sheep wool. Until now, the only vegetarian option has been vitamin D2, which is normally sourced from soy. Introducing AOR’s truly vegan, non-soy vitamin D3 sustainably sourced from lichen: another first from AOR in Canada.
