Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones.* This vegan-friendly D3, made from lichen, is a potent and animal-free source of this essential vitamin.
Sunlight is needed for the body to naturally produce D3. However, people who spend a lit of time indoors, or use sunblock, may not produce sufficient levels of this fundamental vitamin. Supplements are needed to help fulfill the daily requirements for some.
Until very recently, the sources of vitamin D3 had always been animal-derived, not suitable for vegans who were always stuck with inferior D2 supplements. This potent (and cruelty-free) version made with Vitashine Vegan D3 changes that, and gives you the ability to get a sufficient dose for optimal health without compromising your ethics. Vegan D3 Softgels by Country Life are also gluten-free, and contain no yeast, wheat, soy, salt, sugar, preservatives or artificial colors. 60 softgel bottle is $25.99.

I was taking other vegan Vitamin D pills (D2)for years and could not get my levels up. In a few months, my levels were better with this product (5,000 iu). Now my doctor has me continuing 5,000 units every day. Highly recommended.
