Natural Factors Vegan Vitamin D3 is a premium quality vegan protein made exclusively from lichen (a plant-like organism) and provides gentle yet effective relief for symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. This product is one of the few on the market that contains no animal by-products.
This gentle, all-natural vitamin is produced to preserve plant sterols in the finished product, allowing it to be easily absorbed into the body. It is also resistant to oxidation, preventing it from sacrificing potency when exposed to air or light.
Vitamin D3 plays an essential role in providing calcium absorption into bone tissue and promoting strong tooth enamel formation. According to the National Institutes of Health, only 10% of adults have adequate vitamin D levels. Vegan vitamin D3 supplements are an excellent way for people who don't want to take animal by-products or consume dairy products to get healthy levels of this vital nutrient.

Benefits of Natural Factors Vegan Vitamin D3 :
- Provides easily absorbed vitamin D3 from lichen
- Ideal for vegans and strict vegetarians
- Helps prevent vitamin D deficiency

- Supports a healthy immune system
Regulate blood pressure
Vitamin D helps regulate blood pressure and calcium and phosphate levels in the body so they don't become too high or too low. It is also important for maintaining healthy teeth and bones. If you have low vitamin D levels, your body may not be able to absorb calcium and other minerals properly, and your blood pressure may rise.
Improve heart health
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. It helps keep arteries clear of plaque buildup and helps keep blood vessels open and relaxing. Ake solid bones and teeth correctly.
Support immune function
Vitamin D plays an essential role in keeping your immune system healthy. Your body may lose its ability to fight off infections or bacteria. Vitamin D is also necessary for white blood cells to move throughout the body quickly, which helps them fight infections more effectively.
Decrease chances of chronic disease
Vitamin D from supplements and foods provides a level of protection against falls and other physical accidents that can result in long-term disabilities or even death. It also helps the brain function optimally; if you become deficient, your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and dementia increases.
Lower blood sugar levels
Insulin helps your body's cells take in the glucose they need for energy. In case you have a vitamin D deficiency, it becomes more difficult for insulin to properly regulate glucose and other nutrients in the blood and tissues of the human body. This is especially true if you have type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
How does Vitamin D3 affect the body?
Vitamin D is a prohormone that requires conversion to be used by the body. This vitamin is essential for strong teeth and bones and has many other important functions, including regulating the immune system, blood pressure and insulin secretion. This vitamin can be obtained from sunlight (when outdoors unprotected). However, due to the limited time of year and pollution levels, it is difficult to attain adequate levels of this vitamin from sunlight alone.
Why is vegan vitamin D3 better than a regular one?
Vitamin D3 is vitamin D that has been derived from lichen. Lichen is similar to the animal form of vitamin D, without the side effects of a less natural source. This vegan alternative starts at a slightly lower dose because it contains fewer ingredients, making it easily absorbable by your body. It also avoids the risk of any impurities such as potentially dangerous heavy metals. Vitamin D3, also known as cholecalciferol, becomes active in your body when it combines with a substance called 7-dehydrocholesterol to form a compound called calcitriol. This compound is what influences your calcium and phosphorous metabolism and helps support bone health and strength.
