Product Information


Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in some plant and animal sources, but primarily produced by the body after exposure to the suns ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays promote the skins production of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 or calciferol is the most active form, while vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol is synthesized by plants and less available to humans (in fact, studies cited in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, indicate that Vitamin D3 is 87% better in humans, in terms of absorption and bioavailability, than D2).


Vitamin D functions primarily to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. By supporting healthy calcium absorption, vitamin D helps to maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works synergistically with other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization. Unfortunately with aging, skin cannot synthesize vitamin D from the sun as efficiently.


Vitamin D has more recently been in the spotlight for immune system support. Vitamin D is thought to promote immune health by supporting regulation of cell growth and differentiation—the process that determines cells job in the body. This regulation is particularly important as the differentiation of cells leads to a decrease in proliferation. Cellular proliferation, while essential for growth and wound healing, may foster harmful mutations, if uncontrolled.


Vitamin D has also shown great promise in maintaining the bodys innate immune response as well as supporting appropriate autoimmune activity. Both these mechanisms are thought result from vitamin Ds regulation of T cell development.


More recent studies also suggest that Vitamin D may play a role in supporting healthy body fat levels.


Warnings

  • Vitamin D may worsen hypercalcemia.
  • Hypercalcemina may contribute to arteriosclerosis, particularly in persons with kidney disease. Such members should use supplemental vitamin D cautiously.

Excellent Product
I am happy to say I have been taking Vitamin D3, 5,000 I.U., for years. I go all winter with no colds or sore throat, or flu of any kind. I live in WA state, which is NOT known for sunshine. I take more during the winter than the summer, but no illnesses bother me. Thank you for this wonderful product!

Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 120 Veg Caps
A good inexpensive product you shouldn''''t be without. I use 10K a day with some type of fatty food because I have very sensitive skin and also try to get 10 mins of good old SUN too several times a week. Just had my blood D3 checked and I''''m super at 98 ng/mL. Great for preventing and helps fight off invaders along with helping with your body functions
