Doctor's Best Introduces Best Vegan D3
Promotes Healthy Bone Density and Structure*; Available in 60 Vegetarian Capsule Size
San Clemente, CA, July 18, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Doctor's Best has introduced Best Vegan D3 into its
dietary supplement line. Scott Steinford, CEO of Doctor's Best, made the announcement. This product is
available in 60 vegetarian capsules, each providing 2,500 IU of plant-sourced Vitashine vitamin D3.
Best Vegan D3 features Vitashine D3, a sustainably harvested plant source of the vitamin that is
registered with the prestigious UK Vegan Society. The D3 form of the vitamin has been demonstrated as
far more potent than D2, the other commonly used supplemental form, in raising circulating levels of
25-hydroxy vitamin D, the blood marker that best indicates the body's vitamin D status. It is estimated
that a large percentage of the U.S. population does not have an optimal, or even sufficient, vitamin D
status. Since fortified foods often don't supply a vegan source of vitamin D, supplementation with Best
Vegan D3 is a good option for strict vegetarians when sun exposure is insufficient.
While one of its major hormonal effects is to regulate calcium homeostasis in the body, mounting
research highlights how an optimal vitamin D status is beneficial beyond the vitamin's classical role as a
bone nutrient. Recent discoveries have highlighted the important effects of vitamin D on the immune
system, leading to support for a balanced immune response and keeping the immune system in a normal
healthy state of vigilance. Epidemiological studies suggest that vitamin D supports cardiovascular and
cognitive health, as well as a healthy lifespan.
