Immunity is a top priority for consumers today, with 69% taking supplements to support their immune health.2 Although most widely recognized for its role in bone and muscle health, a growing bank of scientific evidence shows that vitamin D has important benefits for immunity too; helping to support the immune response and reducing the risk of acute respiratory infections. This is creating considerable opportunities for dietary supplement brands looking to develop purpose-led nutritional solutions that deliver effective immune health benefits. DSM’s calcifediol (also known as calcidiol) product – ampli-D® – is an advanced and potent form of vitamin D in the dietary supplement market. Clinically proven to raise vitamin D levels three times faster and more effectively1,3, it unlocks the benefits of ‘the sunshine vitamin’ more rapidly.
Globally, 88% of individuals are reported to have sub-optimal vitamin D levels. 4 So, how can dietary supplement brands help raise vitamin D to optimal levels in the body more effectively and better support immunity?
