Bio-D3 is important for bone health and muscle function. Most studies show that lack of vitamin D increases the risk of osteoporosis and the likelihood of hip and other nonspinal fractures. Clinical studies also have indicated that vitamin D status is positively associated with muscle strength and physical performance and inversely associated with risk of falling (1,2).
Therefore, vitamin D has been recommended to be included in osteoporosis and osteopenia management. Vitamin D status also has been shown to be an independent predictor of functional recovery after hip fracture (3).
Bio-D3 promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone. Not only that, by strengthening musculoskeletal system, Bio-D3 can reduce risk of falling thus contribute to fracture risk reduction.
Bio-D3 Strengthen Your Bone and Muscle Naturally.
+ Clinical Tested Dosage - Bio-D3 800IU is a dose with clinical proven to reduce the risk of hip and any nonvertebral fractures (4).
+ Optimal Absorption - Cold-pressed in olive oil ensured the optimal absorption of Bio-D3 (5).
+ Reduce Risk of Hypercalcemia - It gives a more natural way of vitamin D supplementation without any concern for hypercalcemia (6).
