Vitamin D in liquid form, in an oil base
Vitamin D is not actually a vitamin, but a hormone produced in the skin under the effect of sunlight. Vitamin D regulates various physical functions and the activity of hundreds of genes. It is one of the most important vitamins for healthy bones and a well-functioning immune system.
The vitamin D made in your skin is cholecalciferol or vitamin D3, the form that is the best source for humans. Foods usually contain little vitamin D3, with the exception of oily animal-derived foods such as oily fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), liver, kidney, egg yolks, cod liver oil and other fish oils. Plants contain ergocalciferol, or vitamin D2. D2 can also be made synthetically and is added to some ‘enriched’ foods. It is not as easily absorbed as vitamin D3, which means you need more of it to achieve the same effect.
A number of remedies have been developed using synthetic derivatives or metabolites of vitamin D in order to achieve a stronger or more targeted effect, but these cannot emulate the full effect of natural cholecalciferol.
A vitamin D supplement can ensure you obtain a good supply of vitamin D all year round. This is especially important for people who do not spend enough time in the sunshine without sunblock.
Benfida Vitamin D3 is vitamin D in liquid form, in an MCT oil base derived from coconut oil. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin and is more easily absorbed if taken together with oily substances. The oil therefore helps to improve absorption.
We obtain our Vitamin D3 from non-GMO algae. The supplement is thus 100% plant-based and ideal for vegetarians and vegans.
