Ostelin Vitamin D3 1000IU
Did you know?
Vitamin D is made in the skin when exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun. Insufficient vitamin D levels can reduce the absorption of calcium by up to 50%.¹
Want strong bones?
Ostelin Vitamin D3 1000IU provides a daily dose of vitamin D3, the form that is naturally produced in the body. Each small, easy to swallow capsule contains Colecalciferol 25 micrograms (1000IU).
Vitamin D is important as it:
- Promotes calcium absorption and is involved with bone mineralisation
- Helps to support muscle function and to maintain strong bones
- Helps maintain a healthy immune system
Bone health across life stages
For infants, the most important factor in the development of a potential vitamin D insufficiency is their mother's vitamin D status. Generally, breast milk is low in vitamin D.
Infants who are breast-fed and dark-skinned may require vitamin D supplementation to maintain adequate vitamin D nutrition.
Children & Adolescents
Calcium is essential in youth and throughout life to maximise and strengthen bones. It increases bone mineral density and assists normal healthy bone development in teenagers.
Bone mass increases about seven-fold from birth to puberty, and half of a person's bone mass is accumulated during adolescence.
Sufficient dietary calcium is needed to maintain bone mass.
Up until around the age of 30, the body creates bone faster than it is broken down. After age 30, this balance changes and more bone is lost than is gained.
During menopause there is a decline in calcium absorption and increase in calcium loss. Aging affects Vitamin D synthesis in the skin.
Adequate intake of dietary calcium is critical in reducing the rate of bone loss associated with aging and may assist in the prevention of osteoporosis.
