Vitamin D3 1000, by Seeking Health, is a unique vegan vitamin D3 supplement in a non-gelatin softgel that provides 1,000 IU of D3 from lichen.
Vitamin D3 occurs naturally in fatty fish, cod liver oil, egg yolks, and beef liver, as well as in certain fortified foods such as milk and orange juice. However, most of these dietary sources are excluded from a vegan or vegetarian diet. Most plant sources of vitamin D provide D2, a form thought to be less biologically active compared to D3. This product provides a unique form of cholecalciferol (D3) derived from a vegan-suitable plant source: lichen. Lichens are a fascinating group of composite organisms made up of algae or bacteria and fungus existing in a symbiotic relationship.*
Vitamin D is essential for the functioning of many important systems in the body, and recent research has suggested that we may need more vitamin D than previously thought for optimal immune function and long-term health. In some climates, people may be able to produce adequate vitamin D3 from sunlight, but in cooler climates with longer winters, vitamin D deficiency may be more common.*
Vitamin D is required for optimal absorption of minerals including calcium, making it an important nutrient for supporting healthy bones and structural health. It may also play a role in supporting immune health and cellular integrity.*
