Vegan Vitamin D3 (180 softgels)
SC Nutra Vitamin D3 softgels contain only two simple ingredients: vitamin D3, sourced from lichen; and extra virgin olive oil. Using olive oil as a carrier in a softgel shell removes the need for the less desirable bulking agents or carrier ingredients seen in some tablets. Each softgel contains 2000iu (50mcg) of vitamin D3.
Vitamin D contributes to:
- Normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
- Normal function of the immune system
- Normal blood calcium levels
- Maintenance of normal bones
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
- Maintenance of normal teeth
Vitamin D also has a role in the process of cell division and is needed for normal and proper function of the thyroid. It helps to reduce the risk of falling associated with postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fractures in persons 60 years of age and older.

Tiny says: In the UK it’s very difficult to get all the vitamin D we need from sunlight exposure alone, especially if we have an indoor job! I therefore supplement with vitamin D daily, taking more during the winter months when there is less daylight and less in the summer months when I spend more time outdoors. I increase my intake if I feel that I am starting with a cold. I have not yet tried this product as it is new to the market, but I love that it is presented in an olive oil base. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin, meaning that it is absorbed better if consumed with a little fat. This makes olive oil an excellent choice of carrier and it is nice to see that SC Nutra chose it over a cheaper sunflower oil alternative. In my opinion, this is a very high quality product! If you want to learn lots more about vitamin D, I highly recommend that you visit the Vitamin D Society’s website.
