What is 500iu vitamin D3?
Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is the form of Vitamin D manufactured by the skin when it is exposed to UVB sunlight. It is also found in some foods too, and can therefore be taken as a dietary supplement. The production of vitamin D in our bodies can be affected by factors such as the season, weather, latitude, time of day, use of sunscreen, colour of skin, age and lifestyle. Indeed, many of us are low or deficient in this vital nutrient which can only be obtained in small amounts through our diet – so much so that Public Health England now advise everyone to take a daily vitamin D supplement.
Adults: Take 1-2 capsules a day.
Children over 5 years: Take 1 capsule a day.
One capsule typically provides: Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) (500 iu) 12.5 µg.
The gelatine capsules are suitable for Halal and Kosher diets.
