Product details “Vegan Vitamin D3”
Health benefits at a glance:
Getting the right vitamin D level can pose unique challenges for vegans and vegetarians, therefore Life Extension created a vitamin D3 formula with absolutely no animal by-products.
The formula of Vegan Vitamin D3 can support cognitive function and provide potent bone and immune health support for plant-based diets.
Why it works:
Optimal serum vitamin D levels are important for maintaining a healthy cognitive function and bone density and growth as you age.
The science behind the product:
Your skin produces vitamin D3 via exposure to direct sunlight. Plants also get their nourishment from the sun, which inspired Life Extension to create a vitamin D3 supplement completely free of animal sources or by-products.
Getting enough vitamin D
Life Extension recommends at least 75 µg (3000 IU) of vitamin D3 a day. This vitamin D3 supplement delivers 125 mcg (5000 IU) of vitamin D3 as cholecalciferol per capsule. Your optimal blood levels should be 50–80 ng/ml year-round.
Better maintenance of cognitive ability
As you age, vitamin D is vital for maintaining cognitive health and function. Cognitive health tests have shown that aging individuals perform with better scores on maintenance of cognitive ability when the levels of vitamin D are healthy. (1-4)
Strong bones and immune function
Vitamin D (along with essential minerals and vitamin K) plays a critical role in facilitating the transport of calcium into the bone matrix. Keeping healthy vitamin D-levels is therefore important for maintaining strong, healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D is also essential for a healthy immune function. (5,6)
Healthy endothelial function and blood pressure
Vitamin D helps regulate the calcium balance in the body, facilitates calcium absorption into the bloodstream and encourages healthy endothelial function. (7) Vitamin D also helps prevent excess renin levels, and healthy renin levels support healthy blood pressure. (8)
