Support your immune system with Puori D3 - Vitamin D in a potent dose, dissolved in organic coconut oil for optimal absorption.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that is only naturally present in a few foods. Vitamin D is also produced in the body when UVB rays from the sun strikes the skin and triggers vitamin D synthesis.
Vitamin D3’s primary role is promoting absorption of calcium and phosphorus, which is critical for bone growth and maintenance.
Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in the function of muscles and the immune system.
The vitamin D in Puori D3 is extracted from lanolin, a natural component of sheep’s wool. The wool is gently sheared from the sheep and undergoes a purification and cleaning process. From the wool, a pre-stat of vitamin D is extracted. Radiation with UV light of the pre-vitamin D forms active vitamin D, comparable to how sunlight initiates the vitamin D formation in our skin. Afterward, the vitamin D is mixed with organic virgin coconut oil.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, and combing it with organic coconut oil supports the absorption process as vitamin D needs fats for its uptake in the body.
Naturally sourced vitamin D from lanolin, a natural component extracted from sheep’s wool.
Organic, virgin cold-pressed coconut oil used as a carrier for vitamin D for best possible absorption.
The main function of vitamin D is the hormonal role it plays in regulating the blood level of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D increases the intestinal absorption of calcium and the release of calcium from bones to ensure a constant calcium level in the blood.
Calcium is highly regulated and is kept almost constant in the blood for the normal function of the body. Tight calcium regulation is achieved by tapping into the calcium reserve in our bones when our dietary intake is reduced. What this means is that if we don’t get enough calcium in our diet - with the help of vitamin D for absorption - the integrity of our bones can be compromised leading to bone weakness.
Vitamin D is also needed for the mineralization of bones. Children need their bones mineralized as they grow to make them strong and adults are in a constant cycle of bone destruction and rebuilding to keep our bones strong. For this rebuilding process vitamin D is needed. Insufficient vitamin D can lead to Rickets in children where their bones remain soft or osteomalacia in adults where the bones are not sufficiently rebuilt and can break.
Another function of vitamin D is the role it has in the immune system. Many of the cells that are important for an immune response need vitamin D to function. An example is killer cells which target bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin D play a role in muscle function. Vitamin D receptors, which bind to vitamin D are found in the muscle, where it activates the synthesis of protein to maintain and build muscles. Vitamin D also plays a role in the contraction of muscles.
Vitamin D is essential for several functions in the body. We get very little sunshine and a typical diet contain almost no vitamin D, resulting in number one micronutrient deficiency.
It is best to take your vitamin D with a meal.
