360 Softgels 1,000 IU
HTN Vitamin D 1,000 IU is an easy way for all of us to get an optimal dose of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D which is known as the 'sunshine' vitamin is very important to support our health in many ways.
Due to concerns about potentially harmful UV rays, many New Zealanders resist exposure to the sun in the summer and thus they may not ever achieve an optimal level of vitamin D.
During the winter months the sun is too low in the sky to allow UVA and UVB rays to enter the atmosphere, and even if we are spending a lot of time outdoors, we will not be able to make an optimal level of vitamin D.
The warmth we feel when we are outdoors is from infrared rays.
This is even more relevant for everyone in the South Island.
Also, with folks who are in their 60's and 70's their skin becomes 'thinner' and thus is not able to make vitamin D as easily from the sun as it would for folks in their 20's and 30's.
Supplementation is an easy way to maintain an optimal vitamin D level year-round.
Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
