- Maintenance of normal bones and teeth

D3 the preferred bioactive form
Vitabiotics ultra vitamin d 2000 provides effective levels of the preferred form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Ultra Vitamin D provides British Pharmacopoeia quality vitamin D3. D3 is the preferred form of vitamin D because it is the specific form made in the human body and therefore more effective than D2 which is found in some supplements.
The sunshine vitamin
While our bodies manufacture vitamin D on exposure to sunshine, the levels in many countries is so weak during the winter months that our body makes little or none at all. This means that dietary supplements are often the best way to safeguard intakes of vitamin D. Many populations require an additional dietary source of vitamin D to achieve and maintain an adequate status of this important vitamin.
In addition, the body does not generate vitamin D when sitting behind a glass window, whether in your car or at home, because these UV rays cannot penetrate glass to generate vitamin D in the skin. Sunscreens, even weak ones, while essential to protect the skin, can affect the body’s ability to generate vital vitamin D.
Vitamin D in the diet and health benefits
This vitamin is naturally present in some foods (e.g. oily fish such as herring, sardines, fish liver oils, eggs, butter). It is also in a few foods that are fortified (e.g. margarine, some cereals, some yoghurts). Vitamin D is fat soluble, therefore advice to eat lower fat diets may contribute to reduced intakes from foods. In the UK, an average diet provides 3-4 ?g of vitamin D per day and only a little more if oily fish is consumed.

Vitamin D is synthesized by the body on exposure to sunlight. However, many areas of the world receive insufficient sunlight.
