Deva Vegan Vitamin D 800 IU 90 Ct
Deva Vegan Vitamin D 800 IU is a dietary supplement 100% vegan and gluten-free. Doctors have recently found that the majority of those who live in cool climates -whether omnivore, vegetarian or vegan- are vitamin D deficient. All this is in spite of the fact that some fish contain vitamin D and milk, cheese, and ice cream are fortified with vitamin D for those who follow an omnivore or vegetarian diet. For vegans rules are the same.
People who do not get adequate sun exposure or vitamin D fortified foods are at the risk of developing vitamin D deficiency unless they supplement.* Vitamin D deficiency classically causes rickets and osteomalacia (thin bones) and is more common in children who are vitamin D deficient. Prolonged breastfeeding is a cause of rickets in some children who don’t get enough vitamin d in their breast milk. Excessive use of sunscreens can cause vitamin d deficiency.
In adults, vitamin D deficiency can cause bone weakness and boney pain.* Those who are especially encouraged to supplement with vegan vitamin D include those greater than age 50 that are at increased risk of developing vitamin d deficiency.
People with limited sun exposure should also consider supplementation, especially if they are homebound and live in northern latitudes. People with dark skin don’t get enough vitamin d in their system. Those with fat malabsorption need to be supplemented with vitamin D and other fat-soluble vitamins. Those who are obese and have a BMI greater than 30 often are vitamin D deficient and should supplement with vitamin D.* Vitamin D is essential in healthy bones and very important for those with fragile bones and an increased risk of bone fractures. Insufficient vitamin d can contribute to bone loss associated with aging by reducing calcium absorption.
The recommended dose is 800 IU per day, although doses up to 3000 mg/day have been taken by some individuals with known deficiency.* Deva vitamin D is 100% animal-free and guaranteed for purity, freshness, and labeled potency. Remember all Deva products are 100% vegan, vegetarian and are certified by the vegan society, the non-profit organization that actually invented the word “vegan”. Free of GMOs, yeast, wheat, gluten, milk, sugar, salt, starch, preservatives, animal products, byproducts, and derivatives.
