Vitashine supplements contains our exclusive 100% Vegan and vegetarian suitable Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol). We worked with Independent expert laboratories including Stirling University (world renowned experts in lipid analysis) to validate our research.
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the form of Vitamin D produced by the body after exposure to sunlight. Common vegetarian Vitamin D supplements are Vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol), which is a derivative of ergosterol and is not produced by land plants or vertebrates. The healthy debate continues regarding whether D2 offers equivalent efficacy to D3 in the body, with the majority of the Scientific community suggesting Vitamin D3 is superior. Having reviewed a vast amount of published research, our conclusion is that Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) is the best form of Vitamin D for the body.
Vitashine is registered with several worldwide organisations including the Vegan Society and the Vegetarian Society. Our Vitamin D3 supplement is the perfect choice for those wishing to increase their Vitamin D intake without consuming fish oils.
If you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, you’ll already be thinking more carefully about the food that you eat, no doubt including highly fortified foods to ensure that you consume the optimal amount of protein, vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. In an attempt to avoid animal products, those on vegan or vegetarian diets are also more likely to consider the content of dietary supplements, especially when it comes to Vitamin D intake.
None of us want to suffer from Vitamin D deficiency. Consuming highly fortified foods to protect our protein and calcium levels helps to ensure that our food contains every nutrient we need. With the right diet, we don’t have to resort to milk or other dairy products. After all, we all want healthy bones and glowing skin and keeping a good Vitamin D level is a good way to achieve premium bone mineral density and bone health.
The good news is, when it comes to Vitamin D supplementation, you don’t need to revert from your vegan diet. Animal products are not the only way - contrary to popular belief, fish oils, including cod liver oil, are not the only dietary supplements that will up your dha and Vitamin D levels.
Now, there is an alternative to fish oil dietary supplements for those on vegan or vegetarian diets. Our exclusive vegan Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) comes from a special, organic plant source called a Lichen. Lichens are small unique plant species consisting of a symbiotic association of a fungus with an algae. This gives them unique attributes such as surviving in extreme climates and having the ability to grow and accumulate meaningful levels of useful nutrients, including Vitamin D3!
There are many different species of Lichen, and we work with a carefully selected strain we have proved contains Vitamin D3. This makes it the basis for the perfect Vitamin D supplementation. This truly is vegan and vegetarian Vitamin D3 - an alternative to animal derived supplements such as cod liver oil for those following a vegan diet or a vegetarian diet.
Vitamin D3 is linked to a large number of ailments and diseases with research showing many benefits, including good bone mineral density and general good bone health.
