Product Information


Now available in liquid form, Vitamin D liquid softgels (recommended by Bill Henderson) provide a more readily absorbable 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 health body fat levels.


Our Health Co-op's D3 5,000 comes in an easy to swallow size 2S softgel.


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.

THESE SOFTGELS ARE GREAT
I need to take 10,000 i.u. daily, and these 5,000 i.u. softgels make it very easy. I''''m so glad that OurHealth Co-Op now has them. Your price is about half what I previously paid. Thank you.

Vitamin D3
We all know that we need vitamin D, but the softgel was the primary reason we bought this product. That is hard to find a softgel for vitamin D.

Vitamin D3
I live in Canada. Price is unbeatable for the value. OHC products are delivered right to my door consistently for about 10 years with no glitches. Only wish USPS shipping was more reasonable like DHL.
