Vegan Vitamin D

Our vegan Vitamin D supplement is ethically sourced from lichen, providing a concentrated natural source of Vitamin D3 (1000 IU/25 µg). Unlike most synthetic or animal-based products on the market, our supplement offers a clean and sustainable option for boosting your Vitamin D levels. The small, easy-to-swallow capsules make adjusting your dosage simple and convenient.

Vitamin D3, derived from lichen, is highly bioavailable, ensuring effective absorption and utilization by your body. This essential nutrient supports bone health, immune function, and overall well-being. With many people in the UK being deficient in Vitamin D, our supplement provides a clean solution to optimise your Vitamin D levels.

Take 1 capsule per day during or after a main meal. If diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, take up to 4 capsules per day for 12 weeks.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient, which means it will take some time for your body to reach optimum levels. If your levels are low, you'll need to take our vegan vitamin D3 for at least 12 weeks to obtain the full benefits.

Our Vegan Vitamin D3 stands out as a superior, plant-based dietary supplement offering a range of benefits:

  1. Supports Bone Health: Vitamin D3 plays a pivotal role in calcium absorption, a critical mineral for bone health and strength. It's essential in preventing conditions like osteoporosis and osteomalacia [1].
  2. Boosts Immune System: Vitamin D3 is known to fortify the immune system and regulate immune responses. It's vital for maintaining your body's natural defense against diseases [2].
  3. Promotes Mental Well-being: Adequate levels of Vitamin D3 are associated with mood regulation and reducing symptoms of depression. This sunshine vitamin can help improve your overall mood and mental health [3].
  4. Heart Health: Vitamin D3 aids in regulating blood pressure and supporting cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of heart-related ailments [4].
  5. Supports Muscle Function: Vitamin D3 helps maintain healthy muscle function, which can deteriorate due to deficiency of this essential vitamin [5].

There are two types of Vitamin D that are important for nutrition: Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is more effective at raising and maintaining adequate levels of circulating Vitamin D in the body, making it the preferred choice for supplementation [6].

Traditionally, most Vitamin D3 supplements are derived from lanolin – a substance extracted from sheep’s wool, making them unsuitable for vegans. Our Vegan Vitamin D3, on the other hand, is derived from lichen – a unique plant species that naturally produces Vitamin D3, making it the perfect vegan-friendly alternative [7].

Vitamin D3 is crucial for everyone, regardless of age or lifestyle. It’s especially beneficial for individuals who spend a lot of time indoors, those living in northern latitudes, or people with darker skin, as their natural Vitamin D production might be inadequate. Vegans and vegetarians may also benefit significantly, given that most food sources of Vitamin D3 are animal-based [8].
