More and more information is being discovered about the importance of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiencies may result in bone softening diseases such as osteoporosis and childhood rickets.
Even though more than 90% of our daily needs of Vitamin D can be met through our skin’s exposure to the sun, inadequate intake remains all too prevalent, especially during the winter months when exposure may be limited. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis, or low bone mass, affects as many as 75 million people in the U.S., Europe and Japan and causes approximately 9 million fractures annually.1 This may be connected to insufficient Vitamin D supply. For this reason, Vitamin D supplementation is becoming increasingly necessary to maintain optimal health.
While many Vitamin D supplements are either synthetic or made from the fat deposit of sheep wool (Lanolin), D Perfect contains only plant-based Vitamin D, extracted from the vegetable source lichen. Moreover, D Perfect is made of Vitamin D3, rather then D2 as recent studies may suggest that Vitamin D3 is better absorbed than D2.2 For this, and many other reasons, D Perfect may be one of the best and healthiest supplements of Vitamin D available.*
