FAQ: Optim D3 & Vitamin D

WHY DO WE NEED TO TAKE A FOOD SUPPLEMENT RICH IN VITAMIN D3?

Our diet provides a low amount of vitamin D3. The moderate exposure of our body to the sun allows our body to synthesize much of the vitamin D3 needed. When our body is not exposed enough (especially in winter), our body synthesizes less vitamin D3 and we have more risk of being deficient. (see section on Vitamin D)

WHY CHOOSE OPTIM D3?

Optim D3 is a natural and plant-based solution to increase the level of vitamin D3 in our body. Its concentration is ideal for the whole family: children from one year and adults. The coconut oil extract used in the composition gives a pleasant taste and insures an excellent stability.

WHO CAN TAKE OPTIM D3?

Children from 1 to 10 years old: 1 drop per day – provides 500 IU/day

Children over 11 years old and adults: 2 drops per day – provides 1,000 IU/day

Pregnant and lactating women: consult the advice of your doctor or pharmacist to find out about your needs and adjust the intake accordingly.

WHY HAVE WE DECIDED TO REGISTER OPTIM D3 WITH THE VEGAN SOCIETY?

We have chosen to have our products certified by the Vegan Society (United Kingdom) for its international reputation and rigorous choice of ingredients.

Did you know that the word Vegan was created in 1944 by the Vegan Society?

What does Vegan mean to us?

– No products of animal origin: The manufacture and development of our products do not imply the use of products, by-products or derivatives of animal origin.

– No tests on animals: As a laboratory, we do not perform tests on animals during the development and manufacture of our products.

– Non-GMO-free: We only use non-GMO ingredients.
Optim D3 is therefore perfectly suitable for anyone preferring a food supplement of plant origin and quality.

WHAT IS LICHEN?

Lichen is an organism resulting from a symbiosis between a mushroom (representing 90% of the whole), and algae. Lichen is resistant to extreme conditions: lack of water, high-temperature variations (hot/cold), very low temperatures, intense ultraviolet rays and ionizing radiation.

WHY HAVE CHOSEN LICHEN AS A SOURCE OF VITAMIN D3?

Until today, the majority of the proposed D3 vitamins are either synthetic or derived from lanolin (sheep’s wool).
The lichen we selected grows wild in Canada and is obtained from a suitable source to ensure sustainability as well as quality and purity. The vitamin D3 extracted from the lichen is thus perfectly adapted for vegetarians and vegans, as well as for any person preferring a vegetal source of vitamin D3.
