Introducing Pro D3® Vegan
A high quality Vegan Certified Vitamin D3 Supplement
In response to the increasing number of people who follow a vegan/plant-based diet and lifestyle, Synergy Biologics has developed an entirely vegan sourced Vitamin D3 product.
New Pro D3® Vegan utilises a potent form of Vitamin D3 (Colecalciferol), which is extracted from lichen and algae sources. New Pro D3® Vegan is manufactured in the UK at Synergy Biologics manufacturing facility to exacting standards, using rigorous quality control procedures and produced using only high-strength, premium-grade ingredients and is one of only a few Vegan certified Vitamin D3 supplements to be made available in the UK
Until now the most widely available Vegan approved supplement has been Vitamin D2. Vitamin D2 is produced by plants when they are exposed to UV light, and plays an important role in calcium absorption. However, it is Vitamin D3 that is the biologically active form of the vitamin and is more important for overall health and wellbeing. The human body absorbs and uses Vitamin D3 more efficiently, and its beneficial role on the body is more widespread. In addition, studies have shown that it is Vitamin D3, not D2, that maintains levels of Vitamin D in our bodies, even over the dark winter months.
A key role of Vitamin D in the body is the control of calcium and phosphate which is vital for bone health, however it is difficult for anyone to get a daily Vitamin D intake of 10mcg from diet alone. In addition, having exposure to adequate levels of sunlight all year round is difficult in countries in the Northern Hemisphere such as the UK.
Advice from Public Health England is that adults and children over the age of one should consider taking a daily supplement containing 10mcg of Vitamin D, particularly during the autumn and winter months (October – April).
People who have a higher risk of Vitamin D deficiency are being advised to take a supplement all year round.
At-risk groups include people whose skin has little or no exposure to the sun, such as residents in care homes, or people who cover their skin when they are outside. People with dark skin, from African, Afro-Caribbean and South Asian backgrounds, may also not get enough Vitamin D from sunlight in the summer and should consider taking a supplement all year round as well.
Until now, finding good quality Vegan Vitamin D supplements has been difficult. The Pro D3® Vegan range, which is certified as Vegan by The Vegetarian Society will be available as 800 IU and 3200 IU capsules, as 20ml Liquid Drops (100 IU/Drop) and 50ml Liquid (2000 IU/ml).
The range is ideal for those people for whom a daily dose of Vitamin D is recommended.
