Vitamin D3 is manufactured in the skin through the action of sunlight and is also obtained from food sources. Adequate levels of vitamin D throughout life are important for building and maintaining healthy bone mass and hence in maintaining healthy bone density. Vitamin D helps improve muscle strength in the elderly thereby decreasing the risk of falls. A decrease in the risk of falls reduces the risk of fractures.
Ageing significantly decreases the skins capacity to produce vitamin D3.

Features and benefits
* Vitamin D3 is longer lasting and more effective at raising vitamin D levels in the blood than vitamin D2.
* One a day dose.
* High Strength 1000IU.

How it works
* Vitamin D3 is both a hormone and a vitamin. Vitamin D3 is consumed in the diet and also synthesised by the action of sunlight on cholesterol in the skin and so became known as the sunshine vitamin. Because it can be produced in the body, is transported in body fluids, has specific target tissues and does not have to be supplied in the diet, it meets the definition of a hormone.

* Vitamin D3 is best known for its ability to stimulate the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the small intestine and decrease the urinary excretion of calcium thus improving bone density and strength.
