Product Description

What it does:

Swisse UltiBoost Vitamin D contains 1000IU natural Vitamin D3 to increase the absorption of calcium and help maintain healthy bone density. Vitamin D3 is more effective at raising vitamin D levels in the blood than vitamin D2 (synthetic). Vitamin D plays a critical role in regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the body and is important for bone growth and development. The most important dietary form of vitamin D is cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) which is identical to the form of vitamin D produced in the body. Vitamin D maintains muscle strength and has a positive effect on skeletal muscle, improving muscle pain and generalised muscle weakness. It is also essential for general health and wellbeing.

Very few foods naturally contain adequate levels of vitamin D so regular exposure to sunlight is required for the body to produce Vitamin D3. Modern lifestyles often reduce the time exposed to sunlight which increases the need to obtain Vitamin D3 from other sources. Swisse Ultiboost Vitamin D may help in the management of Vitamin D deficiency and also helps improve muscle strength in the elderly

Unlike many other vitamins, Vitamin D is not only obtained via the diet but is also produced and stored in the body. Exposure to sunlight, specifically UVB rays, is necessary for this conversion. Inadequate Vitamin D is becoming recognised as a real concern and according to Osteoporosis Australia there are a significant number of Australians who demonstrate a combination of poor dietary intake and inadequate sun exposure who require supplementation of vitamin D.

What is in it?

  • Vitamin D - can be synthesized by the body with the help of sunlight, however there are still a large percentage of people who are Vitamin D deficient and it is the most common vitamin deficiency in Australia. The major role of vitamin D is its involvement in bone mineralization as it helps to regulate calcium metabolism and normal bone calcification. Even with enough dietary calcium, poor levels of Vitamin D will lead to poor bone calcification, thus making adequate vitamin D essential for strong and healthy bones.

Cholesterol lowering medication and corticosteroid drugs reduce the absorption of vitamin D supplementation recommended.
