Certified Organic Whole Food Source



Our bodies require Vitamin D in order to absorb calcium and phosphorus, two nutrients essential to strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D is synthesized in the body from sunlight. But due to the winter season, weather conditions and use of sunscreen, the body’s ability to produce optimal Vitamin D levels may be inhibited.

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to such health problems as osteoporosis, and decreased immunity. Studies show that Vitamin D can play a role in the immune system’s ability to fight influenza. All these factors combined as well as some evidence that Vitamin D can play a significant role in cancer prevention, heart disease, make it imperative for everyone to take a Vitamin D supplement, to ensure necessary levels in the body.

Vitamin D has been long recognized as a vital for the support of healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D is necessary in the body to assist with the absorption of Calcium and Phosphorous.  Scientists have also discovered Vitamin D’s role in healthy cell division and differentiation, as well as its profound effect on the immune system.

In addition, Vitamin D is linked to a long list of common age related problems.  Currently, the recommended supplementation is 400 IU. Recently, numerous studies have pointed to the benefits of supplementing with much higher amounts of vitamin D, and this is particularly important for Canadians.  Prominent nutritional scientists are calling for an increase to a minimum of 1000 IU per day - some even suggesting the optimal level is closer to 2000 or even 5000 per day.  Zwell strongly recommends the daily use of this vitamin while the research progresses and studies are completed on the optimal daily amount. 

It is especially important to consume adequate amounts of Vitamin D3, which is more easily absorbed compared to its D2 counterpart, to maintain good health status. Vitamin D3 supplementation is particularly important for those who live in Northern latitudes during the winter months when sun exposure is significantly reduced.

Zwell has chosen Naturally Nova Scotia’s Vitamin D3 as the highest quality, 100% whole food, best organic product available today.

This product is an all natural Vitamin D3 biotransformed into whole food D3 using a fermentation process involving nutritional yeast. The yeast are able to digest the D3 and absorb it into their system, thereby converting it into whole food nutrients. Some experts would agree this qualifies this product as vegetarian, similar to the mechanism a plant uses to extract nutrients from animal fertilizers and the soil. 

This D3 is then mixed with organic sweet potato, creating a certified organic Vitamin D3 (Cholcalciferol) that is highly active, and delivered in a form that our bodies can most easily absorb and utilize, providing 1000 IU of all natural, whole food, Vitamin D3 in a safe and effective form.

Healthy Tidbits

Arthritis affects more Canadian adults than cancer, heart disease, respiratory conditions and spinal cord trauma.



Osteoarthritis, the most common of all arthritic conditions strikes 1 in 10 Canadians and is among the most commonly diagnosed chronic condition in this country today.



Arthritis is the most common of all joint disorders.



In a 2009 poll commissioned by the Arthritis Society of Canada, almost two-thirds of Canadians living with arthritis reported that they believe physical activity poses the risk of aggravating their symptoms. Many remain sedentary in an attempt to keep their joints comfortable but this is a dangerous misconception.



In fact, strengthening the muscles, ligaments and tissues surrounding affected joints can diminish pain, increase mobility, improve flexibility and promote long-term health. “The benefits of physical activity for people with arthritis are remarkable,�? notes Dr. Joanne Homik, Chair of The Arthritis Society’s Medical Advisory Committee.
