BioTrace Phyto D3 Complex contains natural, vegan-sourced vitamin D3 derived from the germ of sprouted buckwheat (fagopyrum esculentum), with vitamin K2 and magnesium glycinate for maximum absorption. Most vitamin D3 supplements are animal-derived. Vitamin D deficiency is common in Australians and New Zealanders, affecting 33% to 84% people, depending on age, skin colour and sun exposure.
Immunity: Vitamin D is required for numerous immune functions in both innate and adaptive immunity. Phyto D3 may support a healthy immune system, cardiovascular system, bone health, mood balance and gastrointestinal health.
Cardiovascular Health: Vitamin D is an important co-factor for smooth muscle and heart function. Calcium build-up in the arteries may lead to blood pressure problems. Research shows that vitamin D may support normal blood pressure levels and vitamin K2 may support normal calcium deposition in the body.
Bone Health: Dietary calcium absorption in a vitamin D deficient person is estimated to be as low as 10-15%. BioTrace coral cal-mag with natural calcium sourced from pure, fossilised coral is our recommended companion product with Phyto D3 for optimal bone health.
Mood Balance: Vitamin D receptors are found widely throughout the brain, including the cortex, cerebellum and limbic system. Low vitamin D levels are associated with stress, worry and low mood.
Bowel Health: Research shows that poor gastrointestinal tract health is associated with low serum vitamin D levels, thus supplementing with vitamin D may support bowel function.
