Vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium from the diet into the body. It is therefore important for the growth and maintenance of solid bones and teeth.
Vitamin D occurs in the diet in 2 forms: ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
Both forms are formed under the influence of ultraviolet radiation (UV radiation). This radiation is part of sunlight. Vitamin D2 is formed in certain mushrooms and fungi. Vitamin D3 is formed in the skin of humans and animals.
Our Shakes are vegan. That is why we have chosen vitamin D2 as a supplement in our Shakes.
