Vitamin D is best known for its role in the absorption of calcium from the digestive system and bone formation but it has several other functions including balancing the immune function and mood. Vitamin D is synthesized by the skin after exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun. Given that many people do not spend enough time outside, they can develop a deficiency of this essential vitamin. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with many health conditions including osteoporosis, rickets, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, cancer, TAF (Seasonal affective disorder), chronic pain and frequent infections
It is obvious that a vitamin D supplement especially for the elderly and children, during the winter and for people suffering from chronic diseases, is essential. Vitamin D3 is the most effective form of vitamin D since it is more absorbable than vitamin D2. AOR Vitamin D3 comes from the oil of sheep wool that is collected during shearing in a natural and ethical way. A dose of up to 1000 IU is safe for people of all ages, from infants to elderly people. Consult a health care professional if you plan to take higher doses.
