They feature SourceOne’s unique and patented VESIsorb® lipid-based delivery system, which has been clinically proven to provide increased absorption and bioavailability.
Research suggests that up to 85% of people have less than sufficient levels of Vitamin D. Since each 100IU of Vitamin D taken yields only a 1 ng/ml raise in blood level (with optimum levels ranging from 30-60 ng/ml), creating more efficient products is one of the biggest issues facing supplement companies today. D-sorb™ in VESIsorb® delivers the solution so many health conscious consumers are seeking.
VESIsorb® D-sorb™ colloidal droplets protect the vitamin D from oxidation, stomach acids and light, thus reducing overages generally associated with vitamin D. The VESIsorb® delivery system also makes the lipid soluble vitamin D water soluble, improving absorption and bioavailability. A wide range of vitamin D-3 potencies using the patented VESIsorb® colloidal droplet technology are available for consumer use:
D-Sorb™ helps strengthen bones and supports the immune system and cardiovascular health.
Vitamin D is naturally synthesized in the skin following exposure to sunlight and deficiencies may occur as a result of decreased time spent outdoors, reduced sun exposure in colder climates and heavy use of sunscreen. Additionally, if you are elderly, have dark skin, high BMI (Body Mass Index), or suffer from Crohn’s disease or celiac disease, you may not be getting enough Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency has become a worldwide epidemic in all age groups and we believe everyone should supplement their diet with Vitamin D.
D-sorb™ utilizes Vitamin D3, a more potent and effective form of Vitamin D when compared to Vitamin D2. Vitamins D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol) are naturally occurring precursors that are converted in the liver and kidneys to the biologically active form of Vitamin D. Studies have shown that Vitamin D3 is more effective than Vitamin D2 in raising and maintaining levels of biologically active Vitamin D.
Enhanced solubilization of Vitamin D3 by VESIsorb® …”Body Ready”… Vitamin D3, like Coenzyme Q10, is a poorly water-soluble compound. Thus, enhanced solubilization of Vitamin D3 within the GI fluid by VESIsorb® may improve its oral bioavailability.
Fat/food independent absorption Like many other poorly water-soluble vitamins, the absorption of Vitamin D3 is dependent on food and fats. VESIsorb can reduce this effect and provides more reproducible Vitamin D3 plasma levels.
MCT Vitamin D3 dissolved in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) produced a 4.25 times greater increase in serum 25(OH)D levels than an ethanol vehicle. Reference: Maalouf et al. J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab. 93:2693-2701, 2008, remember: MCT is a main ingredient of D-Sorb/VESIsorb®
Improved lymphatic absorption Vitamin D3 absorption is associated with lymphatic transport. Reference: Cuiné JF et al. Pharmaceutical Research, 24:748-757, 2007. D-Sorb/VESIsorb formulation contains ingredients that are known to increase the lymphatic transport capacity.
