D-Sun® contains vitamin D, which is produced by the same process that takes place in the skin when we are exposed to the sun rays. D-Sun is served in small easy to swallow capsules made from fish gelatin. D-Sun contains 20 micro-grams of vitamin D3 per capsule. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, and to ensure a good bio availability, the vitamin D in D-Sun® is bound to lecithin from sunflower oil. Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, because vitamin D contributes to normal absorption / utilisation of calcium and phosphorus. Calcium is an important component of bones. Vitamin D also helps to ensure normal blood calcium levels. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and plays a role in the cell cycle. In addition, vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal teeth and normal muscle function.
The Sunshine-vitaminIn some parts of the world it is only possible to produce vitamin D in the skin during the summer, and this ability to produce vitamin D from sunlight decreases as we age. Other factors that also affect the formation of vitamin D are diet, skin type, clothing and whether you spend a lot of time indoors. It is possible to incorporate a minor amount of Vitamin D in the diet. Vitamin D is found naturally in the fatty fish, fish liver oils, egg yolk, cheese and other fat-containing dairy products. Since most people don’t get enough vitamin D through their diet, most health authorities worldwide recommend, that - particularly during the winter - it is beneficial to take vitamin D supplements. There has in recent years been an increased focus on vitamin D, and recent research has determined that the vitamin has more beneficial effects than previously believed. Among researchers there is a high level of agreement, that the need for vitamin D seems to be higher than previously thought – i.e. official dosage recommendations have inceased over the past few years. Health Authorities recommend that certain population groups, including pregnant women, the elderly and people who dress in covered clothing all the year round should take a supplement of vitamin D. D-Sun® is manufactured from saturated fat called lanolin, from sheep's wool which is then irradiated with ultraviolet rays in the same spectrum as the sun's rays. This forms the beneficial vitamin D3 in the same way as is appears in our skin when we are exposed to the sun's rays.
Supplementation with Omni-B Active provides high dosages of all the B vitamins - in combination with the essential nutrients Choline and Inositol. B vitamins are a group of water-soluble vitamins each of which plays a role in cell metabolism. The group of vitamins B consists of a total of 8 water-soluble vitamins, and the vitamin B group includes all essential, water-soluble vitamins - except vitamin C. B vitamins are well absorbed from the small intestine and distributed from here where they are easily assimilated in the body.. Due to their role as co enzymes in the organism's metabolism, the B vitamins are present in all body tissues.
Make sure to use all the B vitaminsBecause the B-vitamins are water soluble, they are with few exceptions virtually non-toxic - even in large doses - as any possibly excess of these water-soluble vitamins do not accumulate in the body but are rapidly excreted via urine. It is always recommended to take the entire B-vitamin complex, as a whole because they work in synergy with each other. This is probably also the reason why the B vitamins naturally often occur together in foods containing B vitamins.
Activated formsNordic Nutraceuticals’ focus is on optimising the body's bio availability of nutrients in our products, because of this we predominantly use activated B-vitamins in our product Omni-B Active. "Active" in the name Omni-B Active is merely a reflection of the fact, that the product is largely based on activated B-vitamins. The activated forms used are Riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), Vitamin B6, Folic acid (B9) and vitamin B12. By using primarily the activated forms of B vitamins we ensure an effective bio availability of these nutrients in the body. For example, in the case of vitamin B12, the most commonly used form, Cyanocobalamin, is converted in the liver to Methylcobalamin before it can be absorbed. In Omni-B Active we use Methylcobalamin thus ensuring an optimum readily absorbable form, which does not require conversion in order to be ingested. As a source of folic acid, we for the same reasons also supply the activated form, called methyl-folate. OmniX and Omnimin also includes the activated forms of niacin and pantothenic acid.
Choline and InositolOmni-B Active also contains the essential nutrients Choline and Inositol, both often grouped with the B vitamins. Choline and Inositol are located mainly as part of the structure of the so-called phospholipids throughout the body, which are complexes of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Phospholipids are important building blocks of cell membranes and are thus essential for cell function in all body tissues and organs.
With phospholipid blend for efficient bioavailabilityOmni-B Active contains a proprietary phospholipid blend. Phospholipids are important components of the body's cell membranes, and they contribute to the efficient bioavailability the nutrients in Omni-B Active.
Also for vegetarians and vegansOmni-B Active is registered with the organisation The Vegan Society, that have approved all ingredients in this product. Omni-B Active can be consumed safely by both vegetarians and vegans. The Vegan Society is located in England and is the oldest vegan organization in the world, founded in 1944.
Veg B12® - High-dosed effective Vitamin B12Nordic-Nutraceuticals has now launched a high-dosed Vitamin B12 product in the effective form methylcobalamin. This sublingual tablet has a strength of 1000 μg B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin which is important to many functions in the body. The typical used form of Vitamin B12 in dietary supplements is cyanocobalamin. However this form must first be converted before it can be absorbed in the body. This transformation is often weakened with ageing and may be impaired for other reasons, such as gastrointestinal problems. In Veg B12, Methylcobalamin, which is the biologically active form of Vitamin B12, does not need to be converted and can be absorbed directly in the body. European approved health claims for Vitamin B12

TipIn order to maintain a good synergy between all the different B vitamins, our multivitamins or our Omni B-Active are good supplements to take that contains all the other B vitamins.
