Vegan Vitamin D2 800 IU
Shop for Deva Nutrition LLC
Scientists have found that people who live in cool climates - whether omnivore, vegetarian or vegan - are more prone to vitamin D deficiency due to insufficient sun exposure. All this is in spite of the fact that some fish contain vitamin D and, most milk, cheese and ice cream are fortified with Vitamin D for those who follow an omnivore or a vegetarian diet. For vegans, rules are the same. People who do not get adequate sun exposure or Vitamin D fortified/rich foods are at the risk of developing Vitamin D deficiency unless they supplement.*
People with limited sun exposure may also consider supplementation, especially if they are home bound and live in Northern Latitudes. People with dark skin may not get enough Vitamin D in their system if their sun exposure is limited. Those with fat malabsorption may need to be supplemented with vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins.*
Since Vitamin D is also an important factor in healthy bone metobolism maintaining normal Vitamin D levels is recommended by many nutritionists and health professionals.*
