Active Vitamin D3 By Urban Fuel
Urban Fuel's Vitamin D3 delivers the same biologically active form of vitamin D produced in the body as a result of direct sunlight, without the risk of unprotected UVB exposure.
Vitamin D can be found in cells throughout the entire body. It is necessary for calcium and phosphorus absorption to build and maintain strong bones and teeth, provide immune system support and for healthy muscle function.
Getting Vitamin D From the Sun Often referred to as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D3 is synthesised when bare skin is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. However, studies show that most people do not get the recommended amount from sunlight alone.
Factors that can inhibit vitamin D3 production include the time of day sun exposure occurs, season, latitude, skin colour, age, clothing, and sunscreen use.
Possible Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency.
Bone pain and brittleness, muscle weakness and tiredness. People who may be at higher risk for deficiency include those who spend a lot of time indoors, have darker skin pigmentation, are elderly, or overweight.
Take one tablet daily as a food supplement or as directed by a healthcare professional.
