Vitamin D3 from Premier Research Labs is naturally-sourced and produced without hexane extraction.
Vitamin D3 is now regarded as a very important nutrient for helping us to maintain optimum health. It is one of the few essential nutrients that cannot generally be consumed in sufficient amounts in food. (Best nutritional sources being salmon, mackerel, sardines and tuna, although they only contain around 5mcg per serving.) Usually we meet our Vitamin D3 requirement through exposing our skin to sunlight, which is one reason why we usually feel so good when we are on sunshine holidays or during the summer months. This nutrient plays many invaluable roles in our bodies:
Most people in temperate climates do not receive sufficient sun exposure to meet their vitamin D requirment, especially during the cooler months of the year. As a result, most are deficient of ciculating vitamin D3. The RDA of vitamin D3 in Europe is 5mcg per day, but this is believed by many scientists now to be a gross underestimation of what is needed for optimum health.
Premier Research Labs' Vitamin D3 is one of the most bio-available and non-toxic Vitamin D3 nutritional supplements available. It is extracted from sheep's wool using methanol, and analysis confirms that it is free from methanol, hexane and cholorbenzene tagalongs. The only other ingredients in the product are the extra virgin olive oil base, and natural vitamin E, which acts as a natural preservative.
Directions: Take one drop a day with any meal. If you are pregnant or lactating, consult a physician before use.
