We tend to think about vitamin D for bone health, but thanks to developments in research, we now know that vitamin D is very much an unsung hero when it comes to immune health. And our Vitamin D3 Chews pack 5000 IUs of Vitamin D3 - the potent form made on our skin - in a bite-sized chew that tastes amazing.
Very few foods contain vitamin D. Fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified milk are the best sources. Most of the body’s stores are synthesized by skin exposure to sunlight. The vitamin D from both these sources is Vitamin D3, which the body converts to active vitamin D by reactions first in the liver and then in the kidneys. A vitamin D deficiency can occur when intake from one’s diet is inadequate, exposure to sunlight is limited, absorption from the digestive tract is impeded, or the kidneys cannot convert 25(OH)D, precursor vitamin D, to its active form. As we spend more time indoors, for work and play, we need to pay special attention to our vitamin D intake as it can significantly impact our health, including our immune health.
When we’re deficient in vitamin D, our immune system has a harder time defending against potential threats. How do we make sure we’re getting enough vitamin D? And even more importantly, how do we find a way to stick to our vitamin regimen?
The answer for us was simple––a high-potency vitamin D that not only delivers the functional benefits of this powerhouse vitamin but also inspires us to take it every day, because, well, it tastes that good.
When sunlight hits your skin, a reaction takes place which results in the production of vitamin D – that is why vitamin D has been called the “sunshine” vitamin. While sunshine is key to vitamin D synthesis, getting enough is not always easy – especially if we’re concerned about our skin health. Season, time of day, cloud cover, smog, skin melanin content, age and sunscreen are among the factors that affect UV radiation and vitamin D synthesis. That’s where vitamin D supplementation comes into play. Our vitamin D chews contain the same potent form as that made on our skin by sun exposure – Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol.
We typically don’t think about immune health until it’s too late. Supplementing with vitamin D3 is the best way to ensure you are getting adequate levels throughout the year. In addition to its major role in bone health and calcium absorption, Vitamin D also has many other significant health benefits, including promoting immune health. Our immune system requires year-round support due to year-round compromising factors such as stress, lack of sleep, poor diet and inadequate exercise.
Our vitamin D chew contains vitamin D3, which is the more potent form for promoting healthy vitamin D levels in the body. Our dose of 5000IUs/day has been cited by the Food and Nutrition Board to achieve between 40-60 ng/ml of serum 25(OH)D levels, the maximum serum levels they recommended.
We get it. Swallowing vitamins isn’t the most exciting activity. And we know it’s much harder to commit to taking vitamins regularly if you don’t like the process. What makes the Vitamin D3 Chews so special is that you’ll enjoy taking them every day. These bite-sized chews have natural blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry flavors, making it fun and effortless to consume. ONE quick and easy mixed berry-flavored chew per day. That’s it!
This unique vitamin provides an effective amount of vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol – the same form as made by the body – to support immune and respiratory health. It is also essential for the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, and minerals needed for bone health.

Our D3 is sourced from Lanolin.
Our Vitamin D3 is sourced from Lanolin which is not suitable for vegans but is suitable for vegetarians.
The daily serving size is 1 chew which provides 5,000 IU of D3 (125mcg).
Vitamin D2 is primarily sourced from plants and fortified foods while vitamin D3 is primarily derived from animal sources. Vitamin D3 is the form our skin synthesizes when exposed to sunlight and the preferred, active form in the body. Additionally, clinical research suggests that Vitamin D3 is more effective at improving our body’s Vitamin D levels.
Supplementing with Vitamin D can help maintain vitamin D levels if you are using sunscreens and covering your skin to prevent exposure to UV rays, which can impact our ability to synthesize vitamin D.
