Vitamin D is crucial in our ability to absorb and regulate the calcium and phosphate we consume from food. Through this process, the circulation of this vitamin in our bloodstream provides a multitude of health benefits throughout our entire bodies.
Health Benefits of Vitamin D3

- Improves mood
- Supports heart health
- Assists weight loss
Where Does Vitamin D3 Come From?
Given its nickname, it’s no surprise that one of the main ways we produce D3 is by being exposed to sunlight. However, relying on sunshine is not the most reliable way to ensure you are producing enough D3; it is hard to measure, and too much sun exposure can put you at a greater risk of cancer.
The other main source is through your diet, but it is particularly difficult for vegans and vegetarians to consume enough vitamin D3. That’s because the vitamin is largely found in meat and animal products like beef, fish, cheese, milk, and sheep’s wool.
How Can Vegans/Vegetarians Get Enough Vitamin D3?
Evidence suggests that taking vitamin D3 supplements is the easiest and most effective way to ensure that you are getting the quantity you need.
Here at Green Leaf Sciences, we know how important it is for you to maintain your preferred diet while also getting the essential nutrients your body needs. That’s why we provide all-natural, vegan vitamin D3 supplements in the form of capsules (soft gel and regular), gummies, and a spray.
Made with VitaShine, this exclusive source of D3 comes from a special organic plant called lichen, a species that has the ability to grow and accumulate nutrients including vitamin D3 and more.
