Description

PurePharma claims that its vitamin D3 supplement maintains strong bones, normal muscle function, and normal immune function. Vitamin D is essential for metabolism of calcium, the intestinal absorption and bone mineralization. It has a positive influence on immune cells and it significantly lowers the risk of contracting osteoporosis.

PurePharma’s vitamin D is carefully extracted from an essential natural source and blended with pure organic conout oil, which ensures optimal absorption. The vitamin D, which is based on lanolin, is extracted from wool from healthy sheep living in New Zealand and Australia.

PurePharma matches the highest industry standards. PurePharma D3 has been tested by a third party organization, the International Fitness Ingredient Testing Program (IFIT), that finds it free from GMO, solvent residues, heavy metals and other banned substances.

One capsule contains 2500 IU vitamin D3. The suggested serving is 1-2 capsules per day, which gives you 60-120 daily servings.

Ingredients

The main ingredient in PurePharma D3 is:

  • Vitamin D3 (based on lanolin extracted from sheep wool)

Other ingredients are:

  • Coconut oil
  • Gelatin
  • Glycerin
  • Caramel colour

Directions

PurePharma recommends to take 1 to 2 capsules (2500 to 5000 IU) daily, depending on how much sun exposure you get. If you are exposed to sunlight 20 minutes or more per day, take 1 capsule. If you are exposed to sunlight less than 20 minutes per day, take 2 capsules.

It is best to take vitamin D supplements with a meal or as your physician recommends.

Can be used by adults and children from 11 years.

Precautions

Check with your doctor before use if you are pregnant, allergic to iodine, diabetic, anticipate surgery, or using blood thinners.

Do not use if you receive the container with a broken or missing seal.

People allergic to coconut or other tree oils should avoid using this product.

Side Effects

An excessive intake of vitamin D supplements can cause toxicity and non-specific symptoms like heart arrhythmias, anorexia and weight loss. More severely, it can lead to raising blood levels of calcium that can cause tissue and vascular calcification with the consequence of damaging kidneys, heart and blood vessels.

The recommended dose is 5,000 IU vitamin D per day (read the directions).

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

Our experts at HelloSkin did not find any clinical data on the use of PurePharma Vitamin D3 on people with psoriasis.

However, other studies have reported some benefits of oral vitamin D supplementation on psoriasis (1), although the level of evidence is still not strong.

Traditionally, vitamin D has been known to play an important role for bone health (2). However, its functions are much more diverse, and its property as a modulator of our immune system, and as an anti-proliferative and maturational mediator of skin cells is also recognized (3).

Laboratory studies on immune cells have shown that vitamin D has an anti-inflammatory potential (4) possibly by acting on Th17-related inflammatory mediators (5) that are known to be involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions (6).

Some studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is more common in people with psoriasis compared with controls (7, 8), and it is likely that people who are low in vitamin D may benefit from increasing their dietary intake.
