Vitamin D is an important vitamin, it is in very few foods and can be hard to obtain through diet alone.
Many factors can influence its absorption and it’s important to consider when to take your daily dose.
Vitamin D is produced by your skin as a result of sunlight exposure (1).
However, vitamin D occurs in very few food sources and is difficult to maintain your vitamin D levels if you’re not getting regular sun exposure.
Older adults and people who have darker skin, live in areas where sunlight is limited, the risk of vitamin d deficiency is even higher (5).
Around 42% of adults in the US are deficient in this key vitamin (6).
Supplementing is an easy and effective way to meet your vitamin D needs, especially if you’re at risk of deficiency.
Vitamin D and Fat
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, meaning that it does not dissolve in water and is absorbed best in your bloodstream when paired with high-fat foods.
For this reason, it’s recommended to take vitamin D supplements with a meal to enhance absorption.
According to one study in 17 people, taking vitamin D with the largest meal of the day increased vitamin D blood levels by about 50% after just 2–3 months (7).
In another study in 50 older adults, consuming vitamin D alongside a fat-heavy meal increased vitamin D blood levels by 32% after 12 hours compared to a fat-free meal (8).
Water soluble micellized forms of Vitamin D do not have require fatty foods or meals to help with absorption of vitamin D
Nanotechnology-based micellized vitamin D3 can help improve absorption and overcome the dietary challenges associated with vitamin D3 supplements.
Micellized D3 is water soluble and does not require it to be paired with high-fat foods for absorption.
Studies demonstrate that water soluble micellized D3 supplements appear to be more efficacious in achieving higher levels of serum vitamin D3 (9)
We nano size our D3 and suspend it in a fat soluble source enabling it to easily enter the bloodstream making it highly bioavailable.
Ultimate Vitality Micellized D3 is a natural, Non GMO, Gluten and soy-free, form of Vitamin D in a water-soluble micellized form.
Our micellized D3 offers an incredible value with 750 servings of D3 as Cholecalciferol with 1200 IU per drop and no added artificial colors or sweeteners.
The micellization process produces tiny droplets (micelles) that are then formed into highly absorbable aggregate structures.
