Biocyte Vitamin D3 FROM LICHEN BIO® is a food supplement based on Lichen naturally rich in vitamin D, from organic farming. Vitamin D3 contributes to bone health and helps the immune system function properly.
Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol, is one of the major players in the regulation of calcium and phosphorus. In France, more than 50% of the population is affected by the lack of vitamin D according to the latest study from the Academy of Medicine.
Also known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is mostly synthesized by our skin after exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays.
In some areas, and more particularly during the winter season, ultraviolet rays are not strong enough, so sun exposure is not sufficient to meet daily needs. Vitamin D can also be found through food in small amounts. It is predominantly found in animal products, which makes it difficult to find for people on a vegetarian diet.
Once ingested, vitamin D3 is directly assimilated by the small intestine, transported to the liver for metabolism, then it travels to the kidneys where it is activated. Although its main action is to maintain normal bones, vitamin D3 contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system, but also to the maintenance of normal muscle function.
Our plant origin, lichen
Lichen is a plant characterized by a symbiosis between a fungus and an algae, it grows mainly on rocks, in wetlands. This special symbiosis allows the lichen to be a natural source of vitamin D.
Our raw material used is lichen from organic farming, naturally rich in vitamin D3. ORGANIC VITAMIN D3 is suitable for people following a vegetarian and vegan diet. It is also a renewable raw material derived from biomass, which helps to preserve the environment.
The benefits of vitamin D
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body, it is mainly located within the bones. When we take in calcium, the kidneys will perform a filtering role, and only 20-30% of the calcium we ingest will actually be absorbed.
Vitamin D will act in the intestinal cells and will promote the synthesis of the calcium transporter. The absorption of calcium will be improved, vitamin D thus contributes to the absorption and normal use of calcium.
- Maintaining a normal bone structure.
- Normal functioning of the immune system.
- Maintaining normal teeth.
- Normal absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus
- To a normal calcium level
- The role in the cell division process
- Maintaining normal muscle function
