Minisun has now been on the market for over a decade and it has played a vital role in the birth and development of the vitamin D category in Finnish pharmacies. Today, Minisun is much more than vitamin D, it is a complete series of vitamins and minerals for the whole family. The series includes Vitamins D3, Multivitamins, Calcium+D3 preparations and Minisun Defence preparations. Nowadays, Minisun is one of the biggest food supplements brands in Finnish pharmacies.
Minisun Vitamin D3
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is produced by our bodies from sunlight. Minisun was developed in Finland, the northern country that has just a few hours of sunlight during winter months. Minisun Vitamin D3 contains effective vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) that has been clinically proven to raise the blood concentration of vitamin D to a healthy level and maintain it.
Vitamin D is recommended from October to May for people living north of latitude 400N (Rome, Italy is at 420N). Vitamin D can also be taken throughout the year, when there is not enough sunlight. Daily vitamin D recommendations vary from country to country.
Risk groups for vitamin D deficiency are children below 3 years of age, adolescents and young adults, pregnant and breast-feeding women, people at risk of osteoporosis, elderly, dark skinned people, people who work indoors, use sun screen or covering clothes, and vegans.
Vitamin D health claims accepted by the European Commission:
- Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Maintenance of normal muscle function
- Normal function of the immune system
- Normal inflammatory response
- Normal cell division.
