A POTENT DOSE OF THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
Did you know that 1 in 5 people in the UK have low Vitamin D levels? Whilst Vitamin D is essential for good health, most of us don’t get enough. Vitamin D2 is what you’ll usually find in your orange juice, but D3 is the higher-quality source of Vitamin D that is more important to our wellbeing.
Here to help you achieve an optimum level of Vitamin D throughout the year, this naturally-occurring supplement in a convenient tablet offers a wealth of body-boosting benefits to improve your quality of life – it’s one of the most important supplements you’ll ever take. These tablets contain an extra-strength dosage of 5,000IU to address widespread deficiency across the UK, which can cause musculoskeletal issues such as rickets, falls and poor muscle strength.

Helping in the absorption of calcium and phosphorous from the food you eat, Vitamin D3 is useful for increasing bone and teeth strength and density and prevent breaks and osteoporosis.
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM
Vitamin D3 can modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in Vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity and susceptibility to infection.
IMPROVE BRAIN FUNCTION
Low Vitamin D can impair brain function and reduce cognitive ability, in addition to raising risk of fatal stroke, dementia and MS. Vitamin D may function as a modulator in brain development.
WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY?
Sometimes known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, Vitamin D3 is produced naturally within the skin when it is exposed to sunlight, in addition to naturally occurring within certain foods. Within the body, the vitamin transforms to hormone and circulates throughout the bloodstream to provide numerous health benefits. So, what does the research say?
“Vitamin D is a crucial player in regulation of calcium and bone homoeostasis. The pivotal concept is that the bioactive form of vitamin D may stimulate innate immunity and suppress adaptive immunity.”
“The active form of vitamin D, D3, has been shown to inhibit the development of autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).”
“The identification of vitamin D receptor in cells involved in the immune response and the discovery that activated dendritic cells produce vitamin D hormone suggested that vitamin D could exert immunoregulatory effects.”
“Greater awareness of the importance of vitamin D for skeletal health and more aggressive supplementation efforts are urgently needed”
“Vitamin D3 can be useful as anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anti-stress, anti-arthritic, anti-osteoporosis, anti-cancer, anti-apoptotic, wound healing,
anti-psychotic and anti-fibrotic roles.”
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Vitamin D is not a single compound but a family of nutrients that shares similarities, typically found in two main forms, D2 and D3. Also known as cholecalciferol, the D3 form is created when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
Whilst it is classed as a vitamin, D3 transforms into a hormone within your body and circulates within the bloodstream to assist in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. In comparison, Vitamin D2 is considered a lower quality and less active form of Vitamin D, which is cheaper to produce and less important for our wellbeing.
Vitamin D3 has a number of important benefits to the human body, including maintaining healthy bones and teeth, supporting immune and brain health, helping muscle movement, boosting immunity and increasing mineral absorption.
However, statistics show that one in five people within the UK are Vitamin D deficient, which can trigger symptoms such as fatigue, lowered mood, muscle weakness, bone pains, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, muscle aches and recurrent infections due to a weak immune system.
In the UK, we are particularly susceptible to Vitamin D deficiency due to our British weather. Between the months of October and March in particular, the UK offers too little sunshine year-round to give our bodies the level of Vitamin D3 it needs. In addition, for older adults and people who have darker skin, or are overweight, the risk of deficiency is even higher.
A small selection of foods do contain Vitamin D, such as oily fish, egg yolks and mushrooms, but these will not address a severe deficiency. Public Health England recommends taking dietary supplements to get the right level of Vitamin D3 within your body for your continued wellbeing.
Supplementing with Vitamin D3 tablets is an easy and effective way to meet your Vitamin D needs, especially if you’re at risk of deficiency. Few foods can reach the recommended daily intake, and sunshine is unreliable, so supplements provide an ideal choice for convenient dosage that provides peace-of-mind.
Until recently, the UK government recommended a dose of 400IU daily. So why are Rebiotics Vitamin D3 tablets 5,000IU? A group of researchers and doctors have formed an international alliance to encourage governments across the world to increase their recommended dosage, with 4,000IUs daily “sufficient” to ensure a healthy immune response. From detailed research into scientific studies, we know that supplementation with 1,000 to 5,000IU a day is seen to be the most effective strategy.
Specifically aimed at targeting the UK’s Vitamin D deficiency, our 5000IU tablets produces a rapid increase in circulating levels of the hormone, positively affecting cardiovascular, nervous system, cognitive and immune function. Our potent 5,000IU dose can be taken daily, bi-weekly or weekly depending on your needs.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning that it is best paired with high-fat foods to enhance absorption into the bloodstream. We advise to take your Rebiotics Vitamin D3 supplement with the largest meal of the day, rather than on an empty stomach or between mealtimes.
Independent research studies have shown that those with a deficiency in Vitamin D are more likely to catch viruses and suffer from serious complications. Whilst the idea that an over-the-counter vitamin can help your body fight against viruses may seem far-fetched, it’s important to understand that Vitamin D3 is an essential hormone which the immune system requires in order to function adequately. With widespread Vitamin D deficiency across the UK, it’s time to act now and boost our immune health.
