Vitamin D for Vegans
For both animals and plants, Vitamin D synthesis occurs upon exposure to ultraviolet light. However, it may be difficult for people at northern latitudes to get enough Vitamin D from sunshine during fall and winter. People eating a vegan diet, in particular, may be as risk for Vitamin D deficiency, since most food sources are of animal origin. VegLife’s Supreme Vegan D is an ideal supplement for people who do not consume animal products since it contains Vitamin D-2, or ergocalciferol, which is made by plants. (Cholocalciferol, Vitamin D-3, is made by animals and fish.)
Vitamin D is very important for growth and maintenance of skeletal tissues and is necessary for metabolization of calcium and phosphorus, the most abundant minerals in bone tissue. In addition, Vitamin D is important for immune function. Low Vitamin D levels have been associated with compromised immune function and even immune disorders.
Supreme Vegan D is in a base of synergistic herbs. And vegans and vegetarians will be happy to know that the entire VegLife line is 100% vegan.
