Vitamin D3 is essential for a healthy immune system, cardiovascular health, bone health and many other systems in the body. Getting enough vitamin D is a challenge in northern climates. Platinum Naturals’ Vitamin D3 provides you with the recommended daily dose of 1,000 IUs in coconut oil for easy absorption.
Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). D3 is the form that we produce in our skin when we are exposed to sunlight. Studies that compared D2 and D3 have reported that D3 is more biologically active in raising vitamin D levels in the blood, thus providing the health benefits associated with adequate vitamin D levels.
Getting enough vitamin D
Getting enough vitamin D is a challenge, especially in northern climates. In Canada, we don’t get enough sunlight exposure from October through April to produce vitamin D synthesis in the skin.
Evolution has given us the ability to produce vitamin D naturally in our bodies. You can synthesize it just under your skin with sun exposure to your face, arms, hands, or back without sunscreen.However the seasons, geographic latitude, time of day, cloud cover, skin cover, skin colour, smog, and sunscreen affect how much UV rays you absorb and synthesize.
It is recommended that all Canadians supplement with vitamin D throughout the year.
The latest research indicates that Vitamin D may help strengthen and regulate your immune system, increase bone mineral density, and support cardiovascular health and the list of potential benefits continues to grow.
Vitamin D helps both to prevent and reduce the progression of osteoporosis.
It may also be effective against bacterial and viral infections.
Easy absorption for better results
Vitamin D is one of the fat soluble vitamins along with E, A, and K. A base of fat or oil is an ideal carrier to supply vitamin D to the body.
Platinum Naturals’ Vitamin D3 provides you with 1,000 IU of vitamin D suspended in medium chain triglycerides (MCT), a form of fatty acid derived from coconut oil that increases the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients.
I just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to your company for its wonderful products. I have battled low iron for almost 20 years now. In that time, I was never able to find a supplement that I could tolerate well enough to continue…even iron shots were not doing a good job.
I was introduced to EasyIron by a naturopath and all I can say is WOW. No digestive upset and the best news…my iron has doubled in three months. I still have a ways to go but am confident that I am on the right track. Thank you so much for creating such a stellar product.
At the recommendation of health food store staff, I changed my multi to one of their popular brands for a few months. During that time, I didn’t have the sense of wellbeing I was accustomed to, and I decided to switch back to Platinum Naturals’ Super EasyMulti 45+. Within one week, my nails stopped peeling and became noticeably stronger. Within several weeks, I experienced an increase in energy and regulation of my menstrual cycle. I won’t be switching again!
