Bio-D-Mulsion Forte® by Biotics Research supplies 2‚000 IU of vitamin D3 per drop of vitamin D3 in the form of a micro-emulsion. The micro-emulsion allows for increased absorption and utilization. This factor is extremely important for those who suffer with malabsorption conditions. In clinical testing‚ this liquid supplement showed significant improvement in blood levels of 25-OH-vitamin D after supplementation.
It only takes one drop per day of Bio-D-Mulsion Forte to make a difference. Research has shown that this amount‚ when given to children over a period of six weeks‚ effectively tripled their 25-OH-vitamin D levels.
About Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be found in a select few foods‚ usually in small quantities. Vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin because the body produces it when exposed to ultraviolet rays from sunlight. This vitamin plays a large role in calcium absorption and in maintaining appropriate blood calcium and phosphate levels. So‚ without enough vitamin D‚ bones can become brittle and be prone to breakage. In addition to supporting overall bone health‚ vitamin D helps modulate cell growth‚ immune function and helps reduce inflammation within the body.
Vitamin D Deficiency
Low levels of vitamin D can interfere with bone and cardiovascular health‚ interfering with your everday life. According to estimates from the Vitamin D Council‚ more than 50% of the global population does not have adequate levels of vitamin D in their blood. While that percentage is far lower in developed countries‚ you may still be deficient if you live in a dark climate or dont go outside often. Symptoms can include weak and fragile bones‚ but there also may not be any discernable symptoms at all. If you dont know what your 25-OH-vitamin D serum levels are‚ talk to your doctor about getting tested.
Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency
It may be a good idea to avoid the sun if youre concerned about its harmful UV rays‚ but you should make an effort to supplement or get adequate vitamin D from your diet (which can be difficult). People with certain medical conditions—such as Crohns disease‚ celiac disease or cystic fibrosis—can also have trouble absorbing vitamin D from food‚ so a micro-emulsion such as the one found in Bio-D-Mulsion Forte may be essential. Also‚ as people age‚ their kidneys become less effective at converting vitamin D into its active form‚ causing the need for increased supplementation to keep levels within its recommended range.
