Vegan Vitamin D3 from Lichen - 90 Tablets

100% vegan
plastic free
GMO Free
palm oil free

Keep your Vitamin D levels up, even when the sun is down!

The truth is, our bodies can create Vitamin D3 through exposure to natural sunlight. But we don’t all live in sunny places and due to our modern indoor lifestyles combined with reduced sunlight during winter months, we simply don’t get enough natural Vitamin D... so it needs to come from our diet.

Natural & Effective - Vitamin D3 is twice as effective as Vitamin D2, but it's not easy to find from a plant source. That's why we use Lichen extract, which is the only vegan source of Vitamin D3.

High Strength - One tiny tablet packs in 2000 IU of Vitamin D3, which is a safe and effective daily dose. Most D3 supplements offer far lower doses, which many studies show may not be sufficient.

Quick & Convenient - Vitamin D is one of the most common deficiencies worldwide. With Omvits, getting your daily requirement becomes an easy part of your day.

100% Vegan - Did you know most Vitamin D supplements are made from lanolin, which is the grease secreted from sheep’s skin? Gross, but true! Our Vitamin D3 is made from Lichen, which is the only plant-based source of Vitamin D3.

Good for the Planet - Our pouches are 100% plastic-free, biodegradable, compostable and recyclable! We’ve also found a way to remove palm oil from our formulation, so they're great for anyone who cares about sustainability.

Never again will you miss your daily dose of sunshine!

The Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D is one of the most common deficiencies around the world and it's not surprising. Unlike our ancestors, we spend most of our lives indoors and don't get as much direct sunlight as we'd like.

Even when spending time outdoors you can only produce vitamin D when your shadow is shorter than you are. If your shadow is longer than you (or you have no shadow at all), your body is not producing vitamin D.

That's why a supplement is especially important for people who:

Have mostly indoor lifestyles

Live in countries without year-round sunshine

Wear sunscreen in the summer

Have darker skin

Wear long-sleeved clothes when outdoors

Can't get direct sunlight daily between 10am and 2pm

FAQ

Omvits Vitamin D3 tablets are flavourless and designed to be swallowed.

We decided to avoid adding unnecessary sweeteners and flavourings.

400 IU (10 mcg) is a common recommendation for daily vitamin D supplementation.

However, studies have shown that this may not be sufficient for many people. 2000 IU is a more potent dose, which is still within the safe limits.

While it is true that Vitamin D toxicity can become an issue, this is generally for doses of 10,000 IU or more per day over a prolonged period of time.

Of course it is always best to check with your GP for your specific situation, but 2000 IU is a perfectly safe dose for most people.

Vitamin D is the worlds most common deficiency.

The sun is definitely the best way to get your Vitamin D, but unfortunately, the UK (and much of northern Europe) doesn’t offer much sunshine - especially in the winter months.

Even during the summer, your body can only produce vitamin D between the hours of roughly 10am and 2pm, when the sun is at its peak.

Also, many people cannot spend much time outdoors, wear sunscreen in the summer or work in offices, leaving them deficient in Vitamin D.

In fact, the NHS recommends that everyone use a Vitamin D supplement in the winter months.

There are no vegetables that are a source of Vitamin D3, which is the most effective form of Vitamin D.

Some mushrooms are a source of the inferior D2. Our supplement is derived from Lichen, which is one of the only plant sources of D3.

Most supermarket quality Vitamin D is made from cheap synthetic ingredients. We’ve gone further to find sustainable, plant-based ingredients.

For example, our Vitamin D is in the form D3 rather than D2 for higher effectiveness and we’ve removed palm oil from the formula.

Our D3 is sourced from plant-based Lichen extract, rather than the animal-based Lanolin or fish used in most other D3 supplements.

We have a double-strength 2000iu dose and offer a 3-month supply rather than the usual 1-month supply.

Absolutely! Our supplement contains D3 which is the most effective form of Vitamin D. It’s the same type created by the body when exposed to sunlight.

Non-vegan D3 is usually made from fish, which have additional sustainability issues. Even vegetarian D3 is usually derived from Lanolin which comes from sheep fat. 

Omvits Vitamin D3 offers the same effectiveness, but with clean, plant-based ingredients and no palm oil.

Yes, they are very small round tablets and are approximately 7mm across.

No, the entire range of Omvits products has no animal products whatsoever.

We are also registered with the Vegan Society.

Although there's nothing in the tablets themselves that would make them unsuitable for children, they contain a high-strength dose of D3 designed for adults.

We would recommend consulting your doctor before administering these to children.
