Do Pukka use Vitamin D2 or D3 in Motherkind Pregnancy and Womankind Menopause supplements? Is there any difference in efficacy between the two?

Vitamin D plays an essential role in the maintenance of calcium and phosphorous levels within the body. It affects digestion, bone structures and the kidneys to help modulate calcium levels. Therefore, Vitamin D is important to support the development and maintenance of a healthy musculoskeletal system.

Womankind Menopause contains a Vitamin D complex derived from mushrooms which help prevent musculoskeletal degeneration as a result of reduced oestrogen levels during the menopause. Our Motherkind Pregnancy supplement contains this complex to help support the musculoskeletal development of the baby. Vitamin D comes in two forms (D2 and D3) which differ slightly in their chemical make-up. These structural differences alter the way in which the body breaks them down. However, their overall activity and end result within the body is very similar. Pukka have chosen a plant based Vitamin D to ensure a natural, organic alternative to a synthetically produced form. We think its better both for the planet and for you.
