Why Are Most Diets Deficient in Vitamin D?

Most vitamins can be sourced from eating a good balanced diet, however Vitamin D (and also Vitamin K) are deficient in modern northern hemisphere societies. The reason for this is Vitamin D is derived from sunlight. Almost all health authorities agree on the need for Vitamin D supplementation.

Is Vitamin D3 The Same As Vitamin D?

There are two forms of Vitamin D in the body: Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is more effective in supplementation at raising Vitamin D levels in your bloodstream for a longer period than Vitamin D2. Vitamin D2 is usually sourced from plants, and Vitamin D3 from animals, specifically lanolin, produced from sheep's wool. However, LYMA's Vita-Algae D® is derived solely from algae and is therefore plant based.

How Much Vitamin D3 Should I Take Daily?

LYMA provides a scientifically dosed 2,000 i.u. (as opposed to the standard dose of 600 i.u. found in many supplements) as many people's Vitamin D levels are suboptimal. There is much debate about the levels at which Vitamin D should be supplemented. 2,000 i.u. is an optimal and safe dose particularly as we combine it with Vitamin K2 in the LYMA formula.

What are the main benefits of vitamins D3 and K2?

Vitamins D3 and K2 play a vital role in the production of calcium, therefore supplementing with them further strengthens bone mass throughout the body. These vitamins works best when taken together — Vitamin D3 promotes absorption whilst Vitamin K2 directs the calcium to where it is needed. This interdependence of Vitamin D3 and K2 means supplementing with a formula like the LYMA Supplement that contains both, is highly advisable.

Does Vitamin D3 cause hair loss?

There are no known side-effects of taking the correct dosage of Vitamin Vita-algae D® but plenty from a lack of it. Vitamin D3 contributes to the creation of new hair follicles, so therefore a D3 deficiency may contribute to hair loss. Those suffering with alopecia commonly have low levels of Vitamin D.
