Vitamin D maintains muscle strength and has a positive effect on skeletal muscle, improving muscle pain and generalised muscle weakness. It is also essential for general health and wellbeing.
Very few foods naturally contain adequate levels of vitamin D so regular exposure to sunlight is required for the body to produce vitamin D3. Modern lifestyles often reduce the time exposed to sunlight which increases the need to obtain vitamin D3 from other sources. Swisse Ultiboost Vitamin D may help in the management of vitamin D deficiency and also helps improve muscle strength in the elderly.
Unlike many other vitamins, vitamin D is not only obtained via the diet but is also produced and stored in the body. Exposure to sunlight, specifically UVB rays, is necessary for this conversion. Inadequate vitamin D is becoming recognised as a real concern and according to Osteoporosis Australia there are a significant number of Australians who demonstrate a combination of poor dietary intake and inadequate sun exposure who require supplementation of vitamin D.
One capsule daily, during or immediately after a meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Cholesterol lowering medication and corticosteroid drugs reduce the absorption of vitamin D supplementation recommended.
