Continuously striving to deliver pioneering health supplements that suit the nutritional needs of a modern population, award-winning natural health brand BetterYou has announced the launch of its brand-new, vegan-certified vitamin D daily oral spray.
Delivering 1000 IU of bioavailable vegan vitamin D3 per daily dose, BetterYou’s DLux 1000 Vegan Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray boasts a ‘clean label’ with a pure and simple formulation containing only 100 per cent plant-origin vitamin D3 and coconut oil.
Where the majority of vitamin D supplements utilise lanolin (from sheep’s wool) as the source of the nutrient, BetterYou’s innovative new oral spray offers effective vitamin D absorption for those following a plant-based diet.
The optimum strength daily oral spray has been scientifically formulated to deliver vitamin D directly into the bloodstream, bypassing primary processing by the gut.
Supporting a normal, healthy immune system, vitamin D is an essential nutrient that regulates the intake of calcium, magnesium and phosphorous which are vital minerals required, among other things, for the formation of healthy bones.
The vast majority of the vitamin D our bodies require for optimum health comes from our skin’s unprotected exposure to sunlight. However, UVB radiation cannot penetrate cloud cover, glass, clothing or SPF within creams and make-up, which makes it difficult to maintain vitamin D levels through sunlight alone.
Although available in a range of animal-sourced foods such as fatty fish and eggs it is difficult to eat your way out of a vitamin D deficiency, and for those on a vegetarian or vegan diet it’s virtually impossible.
Research has found that the vast majority of those following a plant-based diet have sub-optimal levels of vitamin D, with just 10 per cent of vegans having serum vitamin D concentration levels of >75 nmol/L, which is the level proposed by some researchers to be optimal, meaning supplementation may be needed to ensure good health.
The Vitamin D3V used within BetterYou’s brand-new oral spray is of 100 per cent plant origin, produced from Algae. This Algae is farmed in Europe, ensuring complete control over its purity and quality. It is completely sustainable and responsibly sourced with no negative impact on the local environment.
Favouring coconut oil over palm oil, the oral spray utilises coconut oil that comes from a small and farmer-operated cooperative plantation, providing sustainability for the environment and a sustainable living for their families.
Ocean Waste Plastic
The vegan-certified vitamin D oral spray is contained in a bottle made from 70 per cent Ocean Waste Plastic, recovered from the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Philippine Sea, along with 30 per cent Post-Consumer Recycled plastic (PCR).
With a carton made of material from well-managed FSC®-certified forests and other controlled sources, the spray is also 100 per cent recyclable.
BetterYou’s DLux 1000 Vegan Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray (RRP £9.95) will be available to purchase online at www.betteryou.com from 5th August 2019 and in Holland and Barrett stores from early September.
