Description: Deva Nutrition is excited to introduce its higher potency Vitamin D supplement that provides 2400 IU of vegan suitable vitamin D per tablet. Doctors have recently found that people who live in cool climates -whether omnivore, vegetarian or vegan- are more prone to vitamin D deficiency due to insufficient sun exposure. All this is in spite of the fact that some fish contain vitamin D and, most milk, cheese and ice cream are fortified with Vitamin D for those who follow an omnivore or a vegetarian diet. For vegans rules are the same. People who do not get adequate sun exposure or Vitamin D fortified/rich foods are at the risk of developing Vitamin D deficiency unless they supplement.*
Those who are especially encouraged to supplement with vitamin D include those greater than age 50 that are at increased risk of developing vitamin D deficiency. People with limited sun exposure should also consider supplementation, especially if they are homebound and live in Northern Latitudes. People with dark skin may not get enough Vitamin D in their system if their sun exposure is limited. Those with fat malabsorption may need to be supplemented with vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins. Those who are obese and have a BMI greater than 30 have a high risk of being vitamin D deficient and may want to consider supplementing with vitamin D if their doctor approves.*
Vitamin D is an important factor in healthy bone metobolism. Insufficient vitamin D may contribute to bone loss associated with aging by reducing calcium absorption.*
