Vitamin D is essential for maintaining a healthy bone structure, it contributes to healthy gut health and a healthy immune system as well. Though Vitamin D is naturally made in the body when exposed to the sun, in the UAE people mostly avoid stepping out in the heat. Apart from avoiding the sun, our diets also don’t provide the optimum levels of Vitamin D. Supplements like the Bioglan Vitamin D comprises 1000 IU of Vitamin D whereas are Vitabalans D Max has 1200 IU and 4000 IU Vitamin D. It’s important to identify your requirement and then pick the perfect supplement for yourself.

Covid 19 has taught us the importance of Vitamin C and how important it is to keep the immune system healthy and ready for combat.

Hence an effervescent drink of Bioglan Vitamin C with Zinc will help you build immunity and also have an antiaging effect.
