60–Day Supply (180 Tablets) -- Vitamin D and Calcium Blend for Strong Bones, Hair and Nails!
Recent medical studies document that vitamin D is more effective than calcium for protecting and building bone. In addition, vitamin D powerfully protects against cancer. Too much calcium can actually interfere with the conversion of vitamin D into its biologically active form. High dose calcium is not ideal for bone strength and may increase cancer risk as a result of lower vitamin D function. The modern world has an epidemic of vitamin D deficiency and most often a multi–vitamin containing the RDA for D is simply not sufficient to bring blood levels up to the ideal range, especially as we age.
Osteo-Sun vegan formulation utilizes vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), a form of the vitamin which is obtained only from plant sources. Higher levels of vitamin D2 are used in this product to adjust for its lower vitamin activity (I also handle the non-vegan D3 formulation--click on the "vitamins and supplements" category, just above the picture).
