What is vitamin D3?
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. UVB radiation from sunlight produces pre/vitamin D in the skin, however, UVB radiation also causes melanoma, skin cancer and photo ageing.
Why do I need vitamin D3?
Sunscreen effectively blocks the UVB rays and protects the skin. Therefore, it might still be necessary to take a vitamin D Supplement like PurePharma D3 to reach optimal levels.
Vitamin D3’s primary role is promoting absorption of Phosphorus and Calcium, which is critical for bone growth and maintenance. The body also requires vitamin D for efficient immune function, ensuring your body is capable of fighting off a great number of harmful bacteria that can make you sick.
Why does PurePharma D3 contain organic, virgin coconut oil?
Your body needs fat to absorb vitamin D, which is why PurePharma D3 includes the healthy fats from organic, virgin coconut oil to ensure that you get the maximum benefit.
