Benefits of Vitamin D

Supporting optimum Vitamin D levels, bone formation and cardiovascular function

Vitamin D is an extremely important fat-soluble vitamin. Most of us should have enough of this vitamin – our bodies produce it naturally when our skin is exposed to sunlight. However, due to the concern over sunburn and sun-exposure, many of us may not be getting enough of this nutrient. Around 27% of New Zealanders have levels way below that which is considered optimal. Vitamin D levels should be checked regularly, but if you think that you may not be getting enough of this then supplementation with Vitamin D3 should be considered.

Studies indicate that besides supporting healthy Vitamin D levels, supplementation may support healthy bone function, healthy cardiovascular function, healthy blood sugar levels and healthy neurological function.

Vitamin D plays an important role in many cardiovascular functions. While many studies have been conducted in this area, research, however, has not yet established a clear link between vitamin D supplementation and improvements in cardiovascular health. Further large-scale studies are needed in this area.

Vitamin D is essential for bone health. Studies show that vitamin D alone or in combination with calcium, is effective in supporting the bone matrix and maintaining healthy bone function.

Sufficient levels of Vitamin D are required for healthy bone formation and maintenance. The most common cause of insufficient Vitamin D levels is lack of exposure to sunlight. Supplementation may assist in restoring healthy Vitamin D levels.

What quality means to us

1.We start with the science.

The first marker of quality is effectiveness. That’s why we follow an evidence-based approach to nutrition. Unless there is scientific research supporting a nutrient it won’t be included in our recommendations. Research is also clearly categorised as mixed, emerging, strong, very strong or traditionally used remedies.

2.We know our place.

Usually the best way to get the best nutrients is in food. Real food. So we will never advocate vitamins or minerals as a replacement to a balanced diet. Where they have a key role is when, for whatever reason, your daily diet is not delivering what you need.

3.We're transparent.

Nutrition can be very confusing, with many voices & opinions. A quality outcome is about being able to make informed decisions. That’s why you can drill down on each nutrient to find out exactly why it has been recommended, its form, its bio-availability, dose & detailed ingredients.

4.We are multi-source.

You’ll find that our range changes. If the research indicates that the best form of nutrient comes via a particular extraction process or from a new part of the world then that is where we will seek to source those nutrients. As new research or technology emerges we constantly refine which nutrients sit at the heart of each personalised recommendation.
