OSTELINVit D is a great source of vitamin D. Two vital nutrients, calcium and Vitamin D, work together to help build strong bones. Most people know that calcium is essential for bone strength but may not realise that without Vitamin D to help absorption, calcium simply cannot perform effectively. Even if you take a calcium supplement, if your vitamin D levels are too low then your bones may still miss out. This can lead to osteoporosis or debilitating falls and fractures. The main source of Vitamin D is sunlight. It stimulates our skin to produce the Vitamin D we need for optimum body function. As we age, our body's ability to produce Vitamin D is reduced. Even in sunny Australia, a surprising number of people suffer Vitamin D deficiency. Directions 1 capsule daily with a meal or as directed by your healthcare professional.
