Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for optimal health and vitality. It helps your body use vital minerals, like calcium and phosphorous, which are important for the growth and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also supports immune health in times of stress, and recent studies suggest that it helps prevent major diseases — the reason why health organizations now encourage all Canadians to take 1,000 IU of Vitamin D each day.
This essential nutrient occurs in two major forms. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) comes from fungal and plant sources. Premium Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol),which is more natural and benefiicial, is produced when skin is exposed to sunlight. Very few foods naturally contain Vitamin D, while heavy clothing, cloudy weather and sun avoidance can all inhibit the production of Vitamin D in the body. As a result, most people experience insufficient levels of Vitamin D for optimal health.
Jamieson Laboratories’ delicious Vitamin D 1,000 IU — Chocolate Chewable contains the recommended daily intake of Vitamin D3 in its premium form and derived from the finest lanolin found on the sun-drenched slopes of New Zealand. When you reach for Jamieson’s Vitamin D — Chocolate Chewable, you’re getting premium, natural-source Vitamin D3.
