Optivitum D 4000
Bioaron® vitamin D 4000 IU is a source of vitamin D intended for daily use during the autumn/winter period and throughout the year for adults who cannot ensure sufficient exposure to sunlight in order for them to maintain the proper concentration of vitamin D.
Vitamin D contained in the preparation:
- contributes to normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus;
- contributes to normal blood calcium levels;
- supports the proper function of the immune system;
- helps to maintain healthy bones and teeth;
- participates in the cell division process;
- supports the proper function of muscles;
- helps reduce the risk of falling due to instable posture and weakened muscles. Falls constitute a risk factor with respect to bone fractures in persons aged 60 and over.*
*Beneficial effects occur if 20 µg of vitamin D per day is consumed from all sources.
Maximum daily intake of vitamin D for obese adults and obese seniors is 10,000 UI, while for pregnant and breastfeeding women – 4,000 UI.**
Almost 90% of vitamin D in the body is synthesised in the skin as induced by the solar UVB radiation. The effectiveness of vitamin D synthesis in the skin depends on such factors as latitude, air pollution, level of melanin in the skin, area of body exposed to sunlight, the use of UV filters, lifestyle, and age. In Central Europe, from October to March, the sunlight is not adequate to allow sufficient synthesis of vitamin D3 in the body.**

Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of the preparation. Do not take more than the Recommended Daily Intake. Do not use the dietary supplement as a substitute for a varied diet. Balanced diet and healthy lifestyle are fundamental to the proper function of the body. There are many risk factors for a fall resulting from instable posture and weak muscles and leading to bone fractures — change in one of those risk factors may or may not have a beneficial influence.
