Why we chose this product
Vitamin D supplement benefit: Being exposed to natural sunlight not only makes us just feel good but we also receive its so valuable vitamin D3.
Vitamin D3 is important because it helps absorb calcium better leading to better bone health. It reduces the likelihood of catching a flu, it can support weight loss, and it can reduce depression, which is why it’s also called the happy mood vitamin.
GoPrimal’s vitamin D3 is sourced from sheep wool (Lanolin). It is blended with organic coconut oil to improve absorption. Hence, it is naturally sourced and does not include bovine gelatin, or any artificials or colorants.
Considering all of this, we concluded that the GoPrimal vitamin D3 product delivers an unmatched value for money.
Benefits for the athlete
Especially for athletes, it is important to get a sufficient amount of D3. Deficiency for active people can decrease skeletal muscle function, force, power and testosterone production, and impacts recovery time from training.
