Vitamin D, a fat-soluble vitamin, is essential to maintaining total body health, yet is not found in many foods. It’s needed to keep bones and teeth strong over your lifetime, and to ensure the proper functioning of heart, muscles and nerves – it even helps your blood to clot. We developed this product using vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol, which is the same type of vitamin D your body makes when exposed to sunlight and is also the version used to fortify foods.
Vitamin D is naturally synthesized in the skin following exposure to sunlight and deficiencies may occur as a result of decreased time spent outdoors, reduced sun exposure in colder climates and heavy use of sunscreen. Additionally, if you are elderly, have dark skin, high BMI (Body Mass Index), or suffer from Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, you may not be getting enough Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency has become a worldwide epidemic in all age groups. Fat/food independent absorption – Like many other poorly water-soluble vitamins, the absorption of Vitamin D3 is dependent on food and fats. VESIsorb® can reduce this effect and provides more reproducible Vitamin D3 plasma levels. Medium-chain Triglycerides (MCT) – Vitamin D3 dissolved in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) produced a 4.25 times greater increase in serum 25(OH)D levels than an ethanol vehicle.1 Remember: MCT is a main ingredient of D-Sorb/VESIsorb® Improved lymphatic absorption – Vitamin D3 absorption is associated with lymphatic transport.2 The D-Sorb/VESIsorb formulation contains ingredients that are known to increase the lymphatic transport capacity.
