Vitamin D3 5000 IU
Sustainably sourced from lichen

AOR’s Vitamin D3 5000 IU is one of the first of its kind, providing truly vegan vitamin D3 sustainably sourced from non-GMO lichen. Lichen is a plant-like substance made up of symbiotic algae and fungi. Up until recently, the only vegan form of vitamin D available was vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) which is usually sourced from soy and is not as absorbable as vitamin D3. However, most D3 products are usually sourced from sheep wool oil and are therefore not compatible with a vegan diet. Manufactured with our patent-pending technology, The softgel offers superior absorption that is safe for vegans and vegetarians. The biggest advantage of offering fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin D3 in a soft gel is that it allows for better bioavailability.
According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 80.7 percent of the U.S. population lived in urban areas as of 2010. With a majority of people living in urban areas, there is increased exposure to high pollution and a greater risk of vitamin D deficiency. That’s why it’s important to get some vitamin D from sources besides sunlight.
Vitamin D3 benefits the body by providing support to the immune system, ensuring proper calcium absorption that promotes healthy bones, while also helping balance mood. Vitamin D is mainly known as a mood booster, especially during winter months when the skin gets little exposure to the sun. As more knowledge about the benefits of this vitamin are discovered, it is becoming more popular to supplement.
AOR’s Vitamin D3 is sustainably sourced from organic lichen and not from the commonly used lanolin derived from sheep’s wool. Vitamin D3 is also formulated in a carrageenan-free vegan softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions, while promoting environmental sustainability.
