Certified Organic Whole Food Source



 

Key Benefits At A Glance:

* Helps prevent common deficiency of this nutrient amongst Canadian seniors
* Is certified organic and bio-transformed into a whole food supplement
*  Is highly active and totally digestible
*  Is easily recognized by the body for maximum benefit in all bodily cells

Product Description:

Our bodies require Vitamin D in order to absorb calcium and phosphorus, two nutrients essential to strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D is synthesized in the body from sunlight. But due to the winter season, weather conditions and use of sunscreen, the body’s ability to produce optimal Vitamin D levels may be inhibited.

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to such health problems as osteoporosis, and decreased immunity. In addition. Vitamin D can play a role in the immune system’s ability to fight influenza. All these factors combined as well as some evidence that Vitamin D can play a significant role in cancer prevention, heart disease, make it imperative for everyone to take a Vitamin D supplement, to ensure necessary levels in the body(3).

Vitamin D has been long recognized as a vital for the support of healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D is necessary in the body to assist with the absorption of Calcium and Phosphorous.

In addition, Vitamin D is linked to a long list of common age related problems.  Currently, the recommended supplementation is 400 IU. Recently, benefits have been pointed out of supplementing with much higher amounts of vitamin D, and this is particularly important for Canadians.  Prominent nutritional scientists are calling for an increase to a minimum of 1000 IU per day - some even suggesting the optimal level is closer to 2000 or even 5000 per day.  Zwell strongly recommends the daily use of this vitamin while the research progresses and studies are completed on the optimal daily amount. 

It is especially important to consume adequate amounts of Vitamin D3, which is more easily absorbed compared to its D2 counterpart, to maintain good health status. Vitamin D3 supplementation is particularly important for those who live in Northern latitudes during the winter months when sun exposure is significantly reduced.

Given the importance of Vitamin D3 supplementation for overall health, particularly in Canada's northern cliamate, Zwell searched for a superior, organic, improved version to bring to its members.  Zwell's D3 is 100% whole food, completely organic, and - we believe - the highest quality product available today.

This product is an all natural Vitamin D3 biotransformed into whole food D3 using a fermentation process involving nutritional yeast. The yeast are able to digest the D3 and absorb it into their system, thereby converting it into whole food nutrients. Some experts would agree this qualifies this product as vegetarian, similar to the mechanism a plant uses to extract nutrients from animal fertilizers and the soil. 

This D3 is then mixed with organic sweet potato, creating a certified organic Vitamin D3 (Cholcalciferol) that is highly active, and delivered in a form that our bodies can most easily absorb and utilize, providing 1000 IU of all natural, whole food, Vitamin D3 in a safe and effective form.

Healthy Tidbits

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.

 

Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.

 

Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
