The seasons have changed, and although we’re still feeling the wind and cold, we are finally seeing more hours of daylight and more sunshine. This is good for the mind, the soul and the body! Sunshine tends to makes everyone that little bit happier and is also an important part of our diet thanks to the Vitamin D it provides!
According to the Irish Osteoporosis Society, 74% of adults and 88% of primary school children have less than half of the recommended daily amount of vitamin D. This fat soluble vitamin is required by the body for the maintenance and development of healthy bones, teeth, and muscle function, and is also needed to promote the absorption of calcium.
Macánta High Strength Vitamin D3 capsules offer 2500iu of cholecalciferol, considered the most natural and most active form of Vitamin D. This vegan form of Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is what the body naturally produces when the skin is exposed to sunlight.
Given the limited amounts of regular sunlight exposure year round here in Ireland, it is difficult to naturally maintain your required levels of this vital vitamin, which cannot be met through diet alone. Given that nearly all cells in the immune system depend on Vitamin D to function effectively, it’s easy to see why this vitamin is seen as essential to health and wellbeing.
What’s also important to know is that as we age our bodies become less efficient at absorbing Vitamin D, so it is important to consider how this supplement could benefit year round as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
