Pharma Nord Bio-Vitamin D3 5000iu - 40 capsules
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble form of vitamin D - when you produce this naturally, it's called cholecalciferol.
We produce vitamin D3 in our skin when exposed to adequate ultraviolet light from the sun. However, our modern lifestyles, which tend to keep us indoors, are depriving us of the sunshine we need. Unfortunately, even the foods we eat rarely contain enough vitamin D3, if any at all!
Our vitamin D3 supplements are easy to take and specially formulated in gel 'pearls'. Vitamin D3 is liposoluble (dissolves in oil), so an oil-based formula is best. Our preparation is dissolved in cold pressed organic olive oil to enhance absorption. They contain the cholecalciferol form of vitamin D3.

So, what are the symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency?
Fatigue, hair loss, back and muscle pain, and even depression can be symptoms of a lack of vitamin D3. More than one billion people worldwide are estimated to be deficient in vitamin D3. The UK government recommends a vitamin D3 supplement for several key groups of people, including:
People over 65 years of age
Those with low or no exposure to the sun
Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers
