So who would benefit from Vitamin D supplementation?

Specific groups that may particularly benefit from supplementing with vitamin D include:

  • people who live in Northern climates
  • all pregnant and breastfeeding women, babies and young children under the age of five
  • older people aged 65 years and over
  • people who are not exposed to much sun, such as people who cover up their skin when outdoors, or those who are housebound or confined indoors for long periods
  • people who have darker skin such as people of African, African-Caribbean and South Asian origin

Whilst a small amount of vitamin D can be obtained from foods, it may be worth considering taking a supplement to ensure dietary intake of this important vitamin.

Vitamin D works with Calcium in the body by supporting its absorption and helping the body make use of Calcium.

So why are Vitamin D and Calcium Important?

Vitamin D and Calcium represent a marriage made by nature. Together they work synergistically to perform extremely important functions.

Both help to support maintenance of normal bones, teeth and muscle function. In addition, Calcium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, neurotransmission, blood clotting and the normal function of digestive enzymes whilst vitamin D supports normal function of the immune system and has a role in the process of cell division.

OK, so clearly they are very important, so why is the AquaSource Vitamin D product so special?

AquaSource as a company believes that the body always processes naturally sourced foods far better than synthetic products. We always therefore deliver Vitamins and minerals from totally natural sources with as little interference or processing as possible.

The best possible source of Vitamin D we have found is Organic Mushroom Powder. This special white button mushroom which provides a very pure and potent form of vitamin D2 is grown without pesticides and is minimally processed to provide and organically certified powder that is suitable for vegetarians as no animal products are used in the processing.

Red Algae (sp.Lithothamnion) was chosen as a natural source of Calcium. It is a rare and unique type of algae found off the coast of Ireland that is known as ‘nature’s perfect source of calcium’.

Organic Alfalfa was chosen as the perfect ingredient to work with our two core ingredients, to produce the most synergistic effect.

Vitamin D’s role in immune health is extremely well reported and has been the subject of a positive opinion from the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA).

The Panel concluded that:

“a cause and effect relationship has been established between the dietary intake of vitamin D and contribution to the normal function of the immune system and maintenance of normal muscle function”
