What are the main ingredients used in NothingFishy Vitamin D3 supplements?
Sunflower Seed Oil: A carrier oil which helps to improve the absorption and bioavailability of our Vitamin D3. It’s also a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids including Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids.
MCT/Fractionated Coconut Oil: As Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, this means that it’s best taken alongside high-fat meals or other supplements such as our Algae Omega 3 supplements which contains healthy fats. That’s why we’ve included MCT/Fractionated Coconut Oil which is high in healthy medium chain fatty acids to further boost the absorption of our D3.
Vitamin E: A preservative and antioxidant which prevents the formation of free radicals to protect cells.
What are the shell ingredients used in NothingFishy Vitamin D3 supplements?
Glycerol: We use glycerol in our capsules to reduce the brittleness of our supplements to make sure they last. Glycerol is commonly used as a solvent for flavours and food colours, and is safe when consumed orally. It’s also used as a humectant, plasticiser, emollient, sweetener and filler in low-fat food products.
Compound hydroxypropyl starch: This is a cruelty-free and plant-based alternative to gelatine.
Which foods should I eat to help with the absorption of Vitamin D3?
Plant-based high-fat foods such as nuts, seeds and avocados are among some of the best foods to take alongside Vitamin D3 to increase the absorption rate.
Why do NothingFishy Vitamin D3 supplements contain sunflower seed oil?
Sunflower seed oil is a popular ingredient found in many vegan supplements because it is a plant-based source of fat that is very well-tolerated by most people.
NothingFishy Vitamin D3 supplements use sunflower seed oil as a carrier oil. This helps to improve the absorption and bioavailability of our D3, allowing you to best enjoy all of the benefits.
Sunflower seed oil is a high-quality source of fat that is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids, both of which are both types of healthy unsaturated fatty acids needed in our diet.
