TAKE THIS DAILY AND CUT YOUR RISK OF THESE
AGE-RELATED PROBLEMS

Everyone needs vitamin D to promote strong bones, immune function, healthy cell division and muscle strength for whole-body benefits. RealDose® Vegan Vitamin D3 combines the benefits of the superior bioavailability of cholecalciferol (D3) with a 100% vegan, non-GMO, plant-based source that is lanolin-free. The recommended daily intake provides high-potency D3, ensuring that you’re getting enough of this essential vitamin.

Vegan Vitamin D3 features a plant-based source of vitamin D3—making it 100% vegan. Other sources of vitamin D3 typically are extracted from sheep’s wool (lanolin) or other animal sources. The vitamin D3 in our product is derived from sustainably grown lichen used in foods for centuries and to this day.

That’s not all. To ensure optimum freshness, the vitamin D3-rich oil is processed at the site where the lichen is harvested. It’s extracted in a controlled environment to protect it against exposure to light, heat and moisture.

Just as important, Vegan Vitamin D3 is non-GMO and gluten-free. It also is free of all major allergens, such as milk, egg, fish, shellfish, soy, peanuts, tree nuts and wheat. And, it’s sustainably sourced, making it an eco-friendly choice.

MAKE IT THE RIGHT KIND OF VITAMIN D

Research indicates that, compared to D2 (ergocalciferol), D3 is a more potent form of vitamin D. It is better able to raise serum 25(OH)D levels — the best measure of your body’s vitamin D status. And that’s why we use D3.

Unlike other vitamins, vitamin D can be produced in the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. But for most of us, with our indoor jobs and sun-wary lifestyles, that’s not happening. Between days spent in the office and cautious use of protective clothing and sunscreens, we’re not getting sufficient sunlight exposure to produce enough vitamin D. For this reason, healthy adults can benefit from a daily supplement. Ensuring you’re getting the D3 variety means you can make sure to make the most of your supplement.

For certain groups, supplementing with vitamin D may be especially beneficial. Consider incorporating Vegan Vitamin D3 into your daily routine if you fall into one of these groups:

  • Mature adults. The body is less efficient at producing vitamin D as it ages, making food and supplement sources more important for mature adults.
  • People with limited sun exposure. People who have jobs that limit sun exposure and people who wear long robes and head coverings are unlikely to receive enough exposure to the sun to produce an optimal amount of vitamin D.
  • People with dark skin. People with dark skin have a greater amount of melanin, a skin pigment that decreases the skin’s ability to produce vitamin D from sunlight.
  • People who are overweight. Excess body fat is associated with lower serum levels of vitamin D. The extra amount of subcutaneous fat may trap the vitamin and alter its release into the circulation system.
  • People who use sunscreen. Using a sunscreen helps protect against the harmful effects of sun exposure. However, some research suggests that sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) as low as 8 significantly decrease the body’s ability to make vitamin D.

PROTECTING HEART, BREAST, AND COLON… NATURALLY!

Vitamin D3—so often upstaged by its scene-stealing cousins A, B and C—is so important to your health and well-being that we’ve included it in our “Essentials” line. In fact, emerging research suggests that vitamin D can support your body’s ability to protect heart, breast and colon cells.

Here’s how:

Your body needs to be able to make good copies of cells. This requires a constant supply of nutrients, allowing cells to divide properly and fostering the creation of new cells and the replacement of old, worn-out cells. Your body relies on vitamin D to keep this process humming along. In fact, most cells in the body, including cells in the breast, colon and prostate, have special receptors that drink up vitamin D to help control the growth of cells.

And that’s not all. Emerging research suggests the cellular-protection effects from maintaining proper vitamin D levels can have anti-aging benefits. That’s because vitamin D is your body’s workhorse. Here is what we know:

  • Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones and strong muscles.
  • Vitamin D supports normal, healthy cell growth, and ...
  • Vitamin D helps to protect your lungs.

And emerging research points to even more:

  • It may help combat cellular aging.
  • Vitamin D probably contributes to optimal blood flow.
  • And it just might help protect your heart too!

All that for less than $.25 a day! You can see why we call vitamin D an “Essential” part of your normal Healthy Life Plan.
