Ultra Vitamin D gummies has been developed as a convenient way to supplement the diet with vitamin D. The product contains vitamin D3, the preferred form of vitamin D produced naturally by the body on exposure to sunlight.
Many national governments recommend vitamin D supplementation for the entire population, due to the presence of widespread deficiency. The UK Department of Health recommends that everyone (including pregnant and breastfeeding women) should consider taking a daily supplement containing vitamin D especially during the autumn and winder. (Source: www.nhs.uk). There are a number of reasons why vitamin D supplementation may be required including:
- Government health advice to reduce sun exposure which can mean less vitamin D is produced naturally by the body.
- Reduced sun exposure in some groups of the population e.g. older people, those wearing certain religious clothing, certain occupations, medical reasons and those with darker skin tones (as greater skin melanin content can reduce the skin's production of vitamin D).
- Increased requirement at certain life stages e.g. the elderly population, whose skin may not be able to synthesise vitamin D as effectively.
- Those with increased dietary intolerances (e.g. lactose and dairy) or allergies.
- People who are on a diet.

Certain Vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every Vitamin and mineral needs to be considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a Vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain Vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of Vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose' levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of Vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
