Vitamin D Lipo Sachets

Why is vitamin D important?

Vitamin D is needed for normal growth and maintenance of bones. As a fat-soluble vitamin that only occurs naturally in a few foods, vitamin D also supports the normal function of the immune system, the nervous system and normal muscle function.

The skin doesn’t often produce enough vitamin D to meet daily needs, and in fact, vitamin D deficiency is a major health problem worldwide across all age groups5. The most common cause is lack of exposure to sunlight due to an indoor lifestyle, as well as cosmetics with UV filters, which reduce the skin’s ability to synthesise vitamin D.

Vitamin D is especially recommended in autumn and winter, as well as for those who have insufficient exposure to the sun, are permanently staying or working indoors, who have darker skin and/or who use cosmetics with UV filters.

Who should take Vitamin D?
  • Anyone looking to support their immune system
  • Those who want to supplement their diet with vitamin D
  • People with a low exposure to sunlight due to lifestyle
  • Those who have darker skin – due to high melanin in the skin (the pigment that acts as a natural sunscreen)
  • Those who need to take it in autumn and winter due to reduced sunlight
  • Anyone who uses cosmetics with UV filters.

  • Promotes calcium absorption – a diet deficient in calcium can lead to fragile bones in later life
  • Supports healthy bone development
  • Helps support immune system function
  • Supports nervous system function
  • Helps promote healthy muscle function
  • Supports healthy foetal development
  • Helps enhance general health and wellbeing
