Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the bioactive form of the essential nutrient Vitamin D.  For years it was only available as a derivative from sheep’s wool lanolin.  Since 2011 the Food Movement has been offering this essential nutrient in a plant-based form, making Vegan Vitamin D3 a reality!

While your body does make its own D3 in response to exposure to natural sunlight, this amount is negated by sunscreen, busy lifestyles and less than optimal metabolism.  Scientific studies have uncovered a much greater need for supplementation with Vitamin D3 than realized before.

Omega Research, a third party resource, published scientific studies on the benefits of D3. They group, this research into categories of benefit : Bone Health/Falls/Fractures, Cancer, General, Immune Health, Deficiency/Insufficiency,  and Lung Health / Bronchial.
