Benefits

You need vitamin D through all your life’s stages as it offers a wide range of benefits apart from its classic role in promoting bone health. There has been an extensive research on the role and functioning of vitamin D (cholecalciferol) which is likened to the structure and functioning of a hormone.

  • The classic effect of vitamin D is to facilitate the intestinal absorption of calcium by mediating active calcium transport across the intestinal mucosa.
  • Calcium absorption by the intestine can be optimized with sufficient vitamin D levels. With deficient vitamin D levels, 10-15% of (dietary) calcium is absorbed by the intestine while 30% absorption is found with sufficient vitamin D levels.
  • Vitamin D is important for its function to maintain calcium and phosphorus balance and to facilitate infusion of minerals in the bones.
  • Vitamin D has also been found to have many non-clacitropic health promoting effects. Diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, psoriasis, hypertension, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and CVD are known to have the involvement of vitamin D.
  • A study found that vitamin D supplementation can promote weight loss and improve body composition in overweight individuals. In the study, participants who received vitamin D showed reduced waist circumference and body fat in comparison to participants who received a placebo.
  • Habitual Indian diets do not provide even 10% of the requirement.
  • Vitamin D may affect fracture risk through several different mechanisms.

Vitamin D insufficiency affects almost 50% of the population worldwide. An estimated one billion people worldwide, across all ethnicity and age groups, have a vitamin D deficiency.

Women

Vitamin D is significant to women’s health, specifically for bone building and additional nutritional requirements are needed during pregnancy and breast feeding.

  • Reduced estrogen production increases bone loss and reduces calcium absorption. In the five to seven years post menopause, women may lose about 20% of their bone density.
  • Breast feeding can have serious implications on the bone development and bone health of the infant and the mother.
  • Researchers make out a strong case in favor of daily supplementation with vitamin D during pregnancy.­­­­­
  • Beneficial effects of vitamin D supplementation on chronic diseases such as type II diabetes and depression in women are also observed.
  • A high dose of cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) can help ease menstrual cramps and reduce dependence on NSAIDs.
  • Studies also show that women with higher vitamin D levels are significantly less likely to develop breast cancer.

Unived’s Vegan D3 is of high nutritional relevance to women’s health. It contributes to your muscle health and by facilitating intestinal calcium absorption it promotes bone mineralisation. For pregnant and breastfeeding women, supplementation with Vegan D3 helps replenish their daily nutritional outflow and uplifts their overall health.

Vegans

Since vegans do not consume animal products, they have access to limited dietary sources of vitamin D3 as vitamin D is present in limited foods such as salmon (360 I.U. per 3.5-ounce serving), mackerel, and sardines, irradiated mushrooms, egg yolk and cod liver oil.

  • Exclusion of all animal products from the diet increases the risk of certain nutritional deficiencies including that of vitamin D. Unless vegans regularly consume foods that are fortified with this nutrient, appropriate supplements should be consumed. Even the fortified foods may not necessarily contain D3, which is the active form or the required quantity.
  • A study recommends an increase in vitamin D intake for vegans at least during winter, especially in the northern latitudes.
  • Unived’s Vegan D3 is derived from lichens – a 100% vegan plant based source that is rich in nutrition. It contains no animal based ingredients or any artificial flavors or preservatives. Vegan D3 is a pure Vegan vitamin D3 Supplement.

Ageing adults

Older adults are at an increased risk of developing vitamin D insufficiency in part because, as they age, their skin cannot synthesize vitamin D as efficiently, they are likely to spend more time indoors, and they may have inadequate intakes of the vitamin.

  • Aging adults and more specifically postmenopausal women undergo bone loss since bone breakdown accelerates formation. This increases the risk of osteoporosis over time.
  • Among postmenopausal women and older men, supplements of both vitamin D and calcium result in small increases in bone mineral density throughout the skeleton.
  • Recent research findings indicate that deficiency in vitamin D may promote cognitive declines in middle aged and elderly adults.
  • Vitamin D may play a key role in helping the brain to keep working well in later life as noted by a study of 3000 European men between the ages of 40 and 79.
  • Cholecalciferol (D3) is important for heart health.

Unived’s Vegan D3 plays an instrumental role in healthy ageing of individuals. With healthy bones and muscles you can remain active right up until the later years of our life. It can further fortify your health by contributing to the upkeep of your mental, immune and heart health.

Athletes

Young healthy and active people need vitamin D to protect themselves from increased injury risk and prolonged recovery periods. Athletes have much greater demands from their body than do others and require their bodies to consistently perform at their optimum.

  • Normal levels of 25(OH) D – vitamin D levels in the body – are necessary for maintaining adequate muscle function
  • Maintaining sufficient vitamin D status may reduce the risk of common infectious illness, which can negatively impact athletic training and performance.
  • Accumulating evidence supports the existence of a functional role for vitamin D in skeletal muscle with potentially significant impacts on both, the performance and injury profiles of young, otherwise healthy athletes.
  • Supplementation with calcium and vitamin D provides a safe, easy, and inexpensive intervention that does not interfere with training goals.

Unived’s Vegan D3 offers 5000 I.U. vitamin D3 which will not only contribute to the athlete’s life with durable bones and strong muscles, also contribute towards performance and faster recovery post exercise or injury.

As vitamin D3 is a fat soluble vitamin, the natural fatty acids in coconut oil aid the transport of vitamin D3 into the bloodstream for fast and maximum absorption, leading to optimal results. Vitamin D3 helps you achieve optimum bone mineralisation, strong muscles and better immune, mental, heart and dental health.

Vegan D3 offers pure, unadulterated, non-GMO, vegan vitamin D3 that is free of contaminants and synthetic additives. Each serving of Vegan D3 contains 5000 I.U. of pure vitamin D3. Vegan D3 is 100% natural, vegetarian, and vegan.

Vitamin D3 VS Vitamin D2

Vitamin D supplements maybe in the form of D2 (ergocalciferol) or D3 (cholecalciferol).

Unived’s Vegan D3 is made using 5000 I.U. of vegan vitamin D3, which readily binds with vitamin D receptor and effectively maximizes calcium absorption. Among the two chemically distinct forms of vitamin D, vitamin D3 is proven to be more potent as compared with vitamin D2.

  • A study found the potency of vitamin D2 to be less than one-third that of vitamin D3.
  • Vitamin D2 has less affinity for VDR (vitamin D receptor), which are present in most major organs and muscles. Further, it has a shorter half-life than vitamin D3.This means that, vitamin D3 stays in your body for a longer time whereas vitamin D2 is eliminated out of your body much sooner.
  • D3 is approx. 87 percent more potent in raising and maintaining vitamin D concentrations and produces 2 to 3-fold greater storage of vitamin D than D2.

MCT 70% from pure Coconuts

Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats available, making it ideal for the transport and absorption of vitamin D3. Unived Vegan D3 is formulated with cold pressed extra virgin organic coconut oil, ensuring optimal absorption into the bloodstream of this fat-soluble vitamin for effective results.

Purity factor

Vitamin D supplements are available in two forms – ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3). Cholecalciferol is the biologically more viable and active form of vitamin D. It is the form of vitamin D which your skin synthesizes when it absorbs and processes the UVB rays of the sun.

  • Unived’s Vegan D3 offers vegan vitamin D3 the more effective and active from as compared with vitamin D2.
  • Unived’s vitamin D3 is derived from lichens – the only non-animal and vegan plant based source available today.
  • Each vitamin D serving contains 5000 I.U. of pure natural vegan vitamin D3 in cold pressed extra virgin organic coconut oil

Unived’s Vegan D3 is inspired by the encompassing nutritional relevance of vitamin D3 in the overall development of health all over the world. Although vitamin D3 most popularly contributes towards bone health, it also plays an important role in several other aspects of your health including brain health, cellular health, organ protection, supports muscle strength and certain psychological disorders.

What is Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble substance necessary for the smooth working of several of the body’s physiological functions. Though it is most popularly known for its important role in bone heath, research has now revealed its relevance in overall health, prevention and cure of various ailments.

“Vitamin D is, without question, the miracle nutrient of the century.” Mike Adams, natural health researcher and author.

Functioning

Vitamin D has a unique functioning system as compared to other vitamins. In fact, it functions more like a hormone, impacting metabolic pathways, cellular functions, and the expression of myriad genes.

The main function of vitamin D is to regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorusin our bones and aid in inter-cellular communication throughout the body. It also positively influences:

  • Immune system, helping you to fight infection
  • Muscle function
  • Cardiovascular function, for a healthy heart and circulation
  • Respiratory system – for healthy lungs and airways
  • Weight loss
  • Brain development
  • Anti-cancer therapy

Without adequate levels of vitamin D you are likely increasing your risk of diseases ranging from heart disease and Alzheimer’s to weak bones and diabetes.

Vitamin D3

‘Vitamin D3 is essential for life in higher animals.’ Anthony Norman D3 is the most natural form synthesized by human beings, when the sun’s UVB light strikes their skin. The synthesis takes places photochemically with the help of provitamin D, 7-dehydrocholesterol, present in the epidermis or skin. A complex series of transformations of the provitamin result in the generation of Vitamin D3.

The molecular structure of vitamin D3 has a close semblance to that of steroid hormones – such as estradiol, cortisol, and aldosterone – and it is referred to by researchers as a secosteroid hormone. It is one of the foremost regulating factors for calcium homeostasis.

In order to function within your body vitamin D3 is reduced to its metabolites including 1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (or 1,25-vitamin D3 for brevity).

The steroid hormone functions in sync with the vitamin D Receptors (VDR) found in almost every tissue type and cells in your body[10] to bring out the optimum impact of vitamin D on your bodily functioning.

Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3

Researchers reveal vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol to be substantially more effective than vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol. The test of potency is determined on the basis of their ability to improve the serum 25(OH) D concentrations – that determine the nutritional levels of vitamin D in your body.

  • A study found the potency of vitamin D2 to be less than one-third that of vitamin D3.
  • Vitamin D2 has less affinity for VDR (vitamin D receptor) and shorter shelf life than vitamin D3.

Unived’s Vegan D3 is made using 5000 I.U. of vitamin D3 in cold pressed extra virgin organic coconut oil, which readily binds with vitamin D receptors and effectively maximizes calcium absorption.

The Sunshine Vitamin

Sunshine vitamin is a popular connotation for vitamin D and is commonly believed to be available to everyone in abundance through sunlight. Yet, vitamin D deficiency (VDD) is among the most common medical conditions in the world. In fact vitamin D deficiency is turning into a global epidemic with an estimated one billion people bearing insufficient levels.

Reduced sunlight exposure due to factors such as clothing, sunscreens and glass shielding notably reduce if not completely stop the production of vitamin D3 in the skin. The amount of vitamin D you get from exposing your bare skin to the sun depends on:

  • The time of day. Exposing your skin during the middle of the day produces more Vitamin D.
  • Your location. If you live closer to the equator, it is easier to produce vitamin D throughout the year.
  • Your skin color. People with darker skin make lesser vitamin D as compared with pale skinned individuals. Darker skin possesses natural sun protection (melanin) and requires at least three to five times longer exposure to make the same amount of vitamin D as compared to a white skin tone.
  • The more skin you expose the more vitamin D your body will produce.
  • Change in latitude, season or time of day impacts the skin’s vitamin D production.
  • Season dramatically influences the cutaneous production of vitamin D3. Very little vitamin D is produced in the skin during winter.
  • Low vitamin D status, as is it largely understood, may occur despite “more than adequate” sun exposure.

Another factor that hampers the production of vitamin D is the numerous measures people take, to protect the skin from the sun as sun exposure is purported to have harmful effects on your skin. Few people know that a sunscreen (SPF 8) lowers the skin’s capacity to produce vitamin D3 by more than 95%.

Deficiency

There is very little awareness about the importance of vitamin D and what they can do to avoid the numerous deficiency associated disorders, including heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

However, the largely unattended nutritious necessity of this vitamin is now coming to the fore since an increasing research reveals a paucity of this nutrient among a large population.
