Why you need it
Vitamin D deficiency is common in modern women, especially in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Your body steals from your Vitamin D stores for your breast milk, prioritising your growing baby. Ensuring you get a daily supply is critical for your own wellbeing.
Vitamin D works with calcium from your diet for strong teeth and bones, as well as promoting healing, boosting immune function and reducing anxiety and depression.
We provide your full daily requirement.

D3 is the form of Vitamin D produced by the body after exposure to sunlight. D3 supplements are usually not vegan - made from extracts of sheep's wool or fish.
Most vegan supplements use Vitamin D2 from mushrooms instead - it's cheap and easy, but the latest science isn't convinced it's as bio-available.
We offer the best of both worlds - D3 from the world's only vegan source, lichen extract.
