Vitamin D is a key nutrient for immune health, bone health, and even muscle function. The most common way we get vitamin D is through exposure to the sun, but due to working indoors, sunscreen, having a darker complexion, or living in a grey and rainy state, a vitamin D deficiency is more common than we think!
Puori (Formerly PurePharma) D3 contains Vitamin D derived from purified sheep's lanolin, which is in the best form for our body to absorb and use. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, meaning it requires fat to be transported in the blood. That's why this supplement contains organic, virgin coconut oil to help with solubility and ensure maximum absorption. These capsule are also produced with a dark coating and placed in a dark bottle to protect the vitamin from being damaged by light exposure. Puori thought of everything with this awesome Vitamin D3 supplement!
Current research has highlighted its significant physiological influence with effects including cell proliferation (cell growth and apoptosis – cell death) and differentiation, inflammation, the immune system, the endocrine system, the renin-angiotensin system, insulin resistance, and lipid metabolism. All of these systems are important for athletes to keep firing on all cylinders!
