Vitamin D3 by AOR
The main function of vitamin D3 is in the absorption of calcium from the digestive system and enhancing the formation of bone. Its other functions include immune balance and mood support. Following exposure to UV rays via sunlight, vitamin D is synthesized by the skin and it is easy to become deficient in vitamin D if not enough time is spent outdoors or during winter when sunlight is scarce. Without sufficient vitamin D, people are at risk for a number of health conditions such as rickets, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, autoimmune disease, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), recurring or frequent infection and chronic pain.
It is especially important for children, elderly people and those with chronic illness to supplement with vitamin D3. Additional supplementation during winter is also important.
Vitamin D3 by AOR is sourced naturally and ethically from sheep wool during shearing. Anyone needing more than 1000IU daily should consult their healthcare provider.
