About Vegan Bioenhanced Vitamin D3
Our natural vitamin D3 is the bioactive form of vitamin D and is necessary for the efficient utilization of calcium, in turn helping to form and maintain strong bones and a healthy immune system.*
Our natural vitamin D3 is sourced from wild harvested lichen, the plant-based vitamin D in this formula is in the natural form (cholecalciferol) and is better absorbed and utilized by the body. The lichen vitamin D3 is harvested and extracted in a sustainable manner and carefully processed to ensure optimum purity and stability. Lichens are small, unique composite organisms formed by a symbiotic and closely interacting relationship between fungi and algae. This gives them unique attributes such as surviving in extreme climates and having the ability to grow and accumulate meaningful levels of useful nutrients, including vitamin D3. Lichens are like moss or small plants and can be found all over the world including extreme environments such as the Arctic and deserts.

How do Whole Earth & Sea formulas compare to other whole-food supplements?A
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast), sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is harvested and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea uses our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology to infuse each supplement with the concentrated goodness of raw nutrition.
Why is Whole Earth & Sea in glass bottles?A
Because it is environmentally sound. Whole Earth & Sea uses glass bottles as well as outer packaging made from 100% recycled materials. The insert is also made from 100% recycled materials.
