Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU
Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU tablets give you a convenient daily dose of Vitamin D. Vitamin D contributes to multiple health benefits including strong bones, strong teeth and a healthy immune system. With so many benefits of this key nutrient, the UK Department of Health now recommends that everybody take a supplement containing Vitamin D.
Formulated as a daily nutritional supplement for both men and women, Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU tablets provide optimum strength Vitamin D (British Pharmacopoeia quality Vitamin D3).
This is a generic product, therefore depending on availability, the brand you receive may not be the same as the one pictured.
The Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU supplement delivers the optimum level of the vitamin, providing British Pharmacopoeia quality of Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is the preferred form of Vitamin D, as it’s the specific form produced in the human body and is therefore more effective than D2.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, which can either be found in specific foods, or is created by our bodies on exposure to sunlight.
Universal research has recently investigated the benefits of Vitamin D, as the nutrient plays a fundamental role in the ways in which the body functions. Some of the benefits of dietary Vitamin D include a contribution to the normal function of the immune system, normal muscle function, the process of cell division, the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal blood calcium levels and the normal absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus, to name a few.
There is also evidence that has shown that a daily Vitamin D intake of 20 µg or more can help to reduce the risks of falling as a result of postural instability and muscle weakness, for adults aged 60 and over.
There are several types of foods that contain Vitamin D, including oily fish, egg yolks and butter, plus fortified foods such as certain cereals and yoghurts. For vegans, vegetarians, or those with food intolerances or allergies, these foods won’t be included within their diets and can therefore be difficult to source. The Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU supplement provides a beneficial way of attaining the vitamin without having to change your diet.
Although Vitamin D is synthesised by the body when in direct sunlight, the negative health implications as a result of excessive exposure to the UV rays creates low Vitamin D levels in many people. For many countries, people are not exposed to sunshine enough to receive an adequate level of the vitamin, and therefore a dietary supplement is essential in ensuring they achieve a sufficient amount of such a beneficial nutrient. Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU provides Vitamin D3, which is the preferred form of the vitamin, being the one the body produces naturally when exposed to sunlight.

Why Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU?
Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU has been developed to provide an optimum level of Vitamin D in a convenient, daily tablet. The supplement comprises of Vitamin D3 – the preferred form of Vitamin D, being the type produced naturally by the body from exposure to sunlight. There are multiple health benefits of Vitamin D, as well as multiple reasons as to why supplementation may be especially beneficial to certain people and their circumstances.
Who Is Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU Recommended For?
The UK Department of Health recommended that everybody, from birth, should take a supplement containing Vitamin D in order to help safeguard their levels of the vitamin. Due to widespread deficiency within many countries across the globe, many national governments are now saying that a Vitamin D supplement is recommended for full populations.
Given the various health benefits of Vitamin D, there are multiple reasons as to why supplementation may be required. One of these reasons is as a result of government health advice to reduce sun exposure, due to the many risks the sun’s rays can cause to our health. However, this reduced exposure can mean that our bodies are producing less Vitamin D naturally.
Though it's not just on the government’s advice as to why particular groups of people have less exposure to the sunlight, specific occupations, medical reasons and those who wear certain types of religious clothing may all have reduced exposure to the sun. Those of us with darker skin tones may also require supplementation, due to a greater skin melanin content sometimes equating to the skin producing less Vitamin D.
Supplementation of the vitamin may also be beneficial to those with specific diets or dietary intolerances. The fact that Vitamin D is found in food such as fish, eggs and butter products means that those eating a vegan diet, or those allergic to seafood, lactose or dairy, may be missing out on this vital nutrient.
There are many benefits of dietary Vitamin D, but one of its key benefits is its contribution to the maintenance of normal bones. This is especially relevant to those in an older age bracket, who have a higher risk of falling and fracturing bones. Elderly people may also find that their skin is unable to synthesise Vitamin D as effectively as they age, and therefore may find a supplement of the nutrient particularly valuable.

Is There Any Advice for Those Who Find It Difficult to Swallow Tablets?
Experiencing difficulty when swallowing tablets is a fairly common problem, and there are a few recommendations that may help make things easier. One tip is to chew some food, and before you swallow, place the tablet into your mouth so that you are swallowing both the tablet and the food together. Follow this with plenty of liquid to ensure both are washed down.
Our throats naturally open up wider in order to swallow our food, and this therefore may help the tablet go down easier. Another recommendation is to swallow the tablet with a thicker type of liquid, such as a smoothie or a yogurt, for greater ease when swallowing. The Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU tablets are small in size, so this may help too. They should not be chewed.
Is It Safe For Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) Levels To Go Above 100%?
Every vitamin and mineral has to be considered on an individual basis with regards to its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value is calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. There are certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, that have consistently shown to have positive benefits in certain areas of health. Because of this, there are some Vitabiotics formulas that have certain nutrient levels that are greater than 100% NRV.
Vitabiotics refrains from ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients, and instead emphasise the importance of safe, sensible and moderate levels of vitamins and minerals that are carefully balanced to maximise their collective effect. Developed using the most recent research, all Vitabiotics products comprise effective levels of vitamins, in coordination with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Is Ultra Vitamin D 1000IU Suitable for Vegetarians?
The Ultra D 1000IU supplement is suitable for vegetarians and has not been tested on animals. It is also free from artificial colours, preservatives, yeast and lactose.

What Does 1000IU Mean in Vitamin D?
‘IU’ stands for ‘International Unit’ and is a unit of measure. The IU measurement describes the potency of Vitamin D. 1000IU of Vitamin D is equivalent to 25µg.
