1000 IU per drop, 50 ml
Known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D is manufactured within the skin when ultraviolet light from the sun penetrates its upper layers. The body itself does not manufacture the active form of Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Instead, it produces Vitamin D2 which is converted to D3 in the presence of sunlight.
Finlandia’s liquid Vitamin D3 uses medium chain triglyceride oil from coconut, which has a neutral flavour and minimizes the risk of allergies. The convenient liquid delivery is easily absorbed and is ideal for the elderly and other individuals who have difficulty swallowing capsules. The calibrated dropper ensures accurate doses.
Many people take 10,000 to 30,000 IU of Vitamin D daily to establish the level of blood 25-hydroxyvitamin-D considered optimal for disease prevention and overall improved health (between 125 and 175 nmol/L or 50 and 70 ng/mL).
It is particularly important for Canadians to supplement with Vitamin D, since our long winters do not allow significant levels of Vitamin D to naturally accumulate within the body. Other factors such as sunscreen use, age, obesity, diet and lifestyle can further diminish the beneficial effects of sun exposure.
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with a number of health conditions including osteoporosis, arthritis, anxiety, depression, autoimmune diseases, cancer, etc.
Finlandia‘s Vitamin D is shelf-stable, but we recommend refrigeration after opening to guarantee optimal potency.
