I often find plastic-free items to stock based on what I look for myself and when trying to find a brand that creates great quality supplements that are made in the UK, have vegetarian casing AND are plastic-free I had some pretty high criteria to tick off.
That's when I came across Wild Nutrition and their range of products are next level amazing and excel in all of these areas with their supplements coming in glass jars without a plastic seal and their aim is to have totally compostable packaging by 2020 - how good is that!
I am now stocking their range of FOOD-GROWN® supplements that pack in all the good stuff without the nasties that can be found in other brands.
VEGAN VITAMIN D
This is an essential vitamin to take through the darker months, or when indoors for long periods, to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels in both adults and children. Vitamin D plays a major role in supporting our immune system and helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphorus in the body which in turn keep our bones, teeth and muscles healthy.
The main difference between our Vegan Vitamin D providing 1000iu/25mcg and our best selling Vitamin D is its source. Wild Nutrition's certified Vegan Vitamin D is sustainably derived from food-grade algae, using a sustainable process that ensures full control of quality and purity. This unique process involves algae and UVB light to create a rich source of Vitamin D (25 (OH) Vitamin D). We then use a gentle extraction process that doesn’t use any chemical solvents and allows the Vitamin D3 to be isolated from the Algae.

What is the difference between Wild Nutrition Vegan Vitamin D & Wild Nutrition Food-Grown Vitamin D?
Both the vegan and non Vegan vitamin D's in the range, are in the form of D3 (the same form your body produces from exposure to sunlight). The Food-Grown Vitamin D is in the 'active' form of D3 - scientifically referred to as 1-25-hydroxycholecalciferol. While the Vegan version is in the stored form of D3 - scientifically referred to as 25-hydroxycholecalciferol. Both are beneficial and work well.
Can I take the Vegan Vitamin D alongside the Food-Grown Immune Support?
Yes, absolutely you can. Between October and March, it's officially recommended to supplement extra so we recommend combining those two products. This may also apply to summer time if you are consistently indoors.

"We are the UK’s original maker of FOOD-GROWN® supplements and we're convinced that our approach to supplementation - that places greater emphasis on how nutrients are delivered into your system - is the best. While the market is flooded with high-dosage tablets of compacted white powders, FOOD-GROWN® supplements are made using a unique process in which we add and grow essential nutrients in real, raw food - which means that your body absorbs the nutrients just as they would a piece of fruit or vegetable."
