Your body actually makes vitamin D when skin is exposed to sunlight. For anyone who spends little to no time in the sun, though, vitamin D supplements may be helpful. The elderly in particular have been known to have low levels of vitamin D. Get your "Sunshine Vitamin" with Swanson Higher Potency Vitamin D3! This unique formula has received a lot of press by researchers and health professionals.

 

Vitamin D-3 deficiency leads to weak bones, increased risk of fractures, osteoporosis, weak muscles, poor immune function, increased risk of infection and autoimmune diseases.

 

The intake of Vitamin D-3 leads to the following benefits:

  • Reduces the risk of osteoporosis
  • Increases strength of the bones
  • Prevents occurrence of fractures
  • Reduces the risk of respiratory diseases
  • Reduces the risk of infections of the upper respiratory tract
  • Improves the condition of patients of diabetes

 

The UK Department of Health & Public Health England recommends that everyone should consider taking a vitamin D supplement in winter and that people at greater risk of low levels should do so all year round to safeguard the levels of Vitamin D.

  • Vitamin D is one of the many fat-soluble vitamins that the body requires to function correctly. We make this essential vitamin from the skin's unprotected exposure to sunlight, but it can also be found in certain foods such as eggs, cereal and fatty fish.

     

    Despite being vital for healthy bones and a robust immune system, our more sedentary lifestyles have meant that exposure to the sun has dropped dramatically and our processed and specialist diets has meant that supplementation is needed to maintain a healthy level of vitamin D.

     

    Vitamin D aids calcium absorption, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, supports a healthy immune system and contributes to normal muscle function.

     

    Who needs it

    Due to our changing diets and ever-increasing internal lifestyles, everyone should look to ensure they maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout the year.

     

    However, the Department of Health outlines the following groups as “at-risk” and should strongly consider supplementation:

    • All pregnant and breastfeeding women
    • Infants and young children under 5 years of age
    • Older people aged 65 years and over
    • People who have low or no exposure to the sun
    • People who have darker skin

     

    The UK Department of Health & Public Health England recommends that everyone should consider taking a vitamin D supplement in winter and that people at greater risk of low levels should do so all year round to safeguard the levels of Vitamin D.
