About Pure Food Vitamin D3
Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Vegan Bioenhanced Vitamin D3 is a new plant-based source of this essential nutrient, developed especially for vegans and vegetarians. Carefully extracted from lichen, it provides natural vitamin D in its most bioactive form, cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
Vitamin D, known as “the sunshine vitamin”, is vital for bone development and immune system health. It facilitates efficient calcium utilization, which in turn helps form and maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also contributes to a healthy immune system. Since the chief dietary source of vitamin D is fish and fortified dairy products, strict vegetarians and vegans are often lacking in vitamin D. With 1000 IU in each capsule, Vegan Bioenhanced Vitamin D3 helps meet individual vitamin D requirements when dietary intake or sun exposure is low.
In keeping with the whole food focus of the Whole Earth & Sea line, plant-based vegan vitamin D3 is highly bioavailable. It is sourced from a unique species of non-GMO lichen which has the ability to produce vitamin D in the natural D3 form. Vitamin D3 is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body. The lichen is wild-harvested and extracted in a sustainable manner, and carefully processed to ensure optimum purity and stability.
Recommended use: Developed with vegans in mind, this unique vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is extracted from lichen. Natural vitamin D3 is the bioactive form of vitamin D and is necessary for the efficient utilization of calcium, in turn helping to form and maintain strong bones and a healthy immune system. Calcium intake, when combined with sufficient vitamin D, a healthy diet and regular exercise, may reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.

Why is Whole Earth & Sea in glass bottles?A
Because it is environmentally sound. Whole Earth & Sea uses glass bottles as well as outer packaging made from 100% recycled materials. The insert is also made from 100% recycled materials.
How do Whole Earth & Sea formulas compare to other whole-food supplements?A
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is killed off and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as other whole food sources and raw processes these nutrient-dense plants using our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology, yielding a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
