Did you know that vitamin D is the vitamin that Westerners are most deficient in? In fact, more than half of the population in countries where there is not enough sunshine in winter suffers from more or less severe vitamin D deficiency.
If you are an endurance athlete, getting enough vitamin D is even more crucial, especially during the months when you don't get enough of it from the sun. This can stretch from October to May. A deficiency can lead to serious consequences for the body: from feeling unwell, to the body not functioning properly.
Vitamin D contributes to adequate levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood and organs (bones, teeth), supports the immune system, and can have a positive effect on muscle cells.
Vitamin D is fat soluble, which means that it does not dissolve in water and is best absorbed in the bloodstream if combined with fat. This is why we recommend taking vitamin D supplements after a meal containing about 10g of fat.
- High dose (2000 IU)
- Supports the immune system
- More energy during the winter months
- For better well-being
- Improves physical performance
- Increases teeth and bone density
- Increases calcium absorption
- Involved in testosterone production
- Plays a role in cell division
Take 1 capsule per day with meal. Vitamin D3 is fat soluble, so you must intake it with a source of fat.
After 2 to 3 months of taking vitamin D with a main meal, blood levels of vitamin D have been proven to increase by 50%. It is also a good idea to take vitamin D in the first half of the day, as it can affect melatonin production and consequently affect the quality of sleep.
The high dose of 2000 IU is not intended for prolonged use. Take when dealing with vitamin D deficiency or under the supervision of your physician.
