Vitamin D3 from a vegetable source (Vitashine®)
International authorities have recently determined that the intake of vitamin D from food should be higher (15 mcg) and that the maximum permitted dosage should be increased (100 mcg). The importance of higher doses has long been known to us and in the professional world. Our vitamin D experts recommend that the vitamin D level in adults should be at least 75 nmol/l. To obtain this level of vitamin D, it is necessary to take a number of doses. To maintain such a vitamin D level, an oral dose of vitamin D3 of around 25-75 mcg per day is needed. Multivitamin OPTIMUM contains ample amounts of vitamin D3 (13.7 mcg per tablet) to meet this requirement. Moreover, our Multivitamin OPTIMUM uses vegetable-based vitamin D3 (Vitashine®). This is because it is produced from lichen, and not from animal sheep's wool fat (like the vast majority of vitamin D3 products). This makes all Multivitamin OPTIMUM also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
