Vitamin D3, 5000 IU



Vitamin D3 by Vitamin Research Products plays an integral part in calcium metabolism and bone health. One capsule supplies 5,000 IU of natural vitamin D. Vitamin D3 offers a broad range of health benefits beyond its obvious role in bone health, as it may positively impact heart and arterial health, immune system function, maintenance of healthy glucose levels, and cognitive performance. Vitamin D has some of the biggest news in nutrition science. Americans are low in vitamin D and there are health consequences. Nearly everyone needs more. From newborns to fragile elderly, we have too little vitamin D. And there is good news. Supplementation is effective and affordable, and Vitamin Research Products offers the best form available, according to research. Vitamin D deficiency in children was a thing of the past until recent years. More falls and fractures, more sickness is related to insufficient Vitamin D levels in adults and seniors. Young adults, teens and pregnant women seem to have too little for good health. Even those living in sunny states have too little vitamin D. What is Vitamin D? Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, it is well-absorbed and there are no known allergies. There are few food sources. In the United States, milk and dairy foods are fortified, but Americans still tend to be low. Vitamin D can be synthesized in the body from sunlight, but the sun is not a reliable source of vitamin D, particularly for those living in the Northern hemisphere. Using sunblock further blocks vitamin D synthesis. Why do we need vitamin D? Vitamin D: Manages critical mineral balance in the blood and bones. Improves absorption of calcium Promotes strong, dense bones Reduces the number of falls and consequent skeletal fractures Improves muscle strength and neuromuscular function Provides important immune and autoimmune support Nourishes gums and teeth May reduce coronary plaque Improves joints and range-of-motion Promotes lung function Supports colon, breast and prostate health May improve cognition Who needs vitamin D? Experts report that adults, seniors and people-of-color have the lowest levels. Obese individuals and people with malabsorption and intestinal issues tend to be low. New findings indicate that pregnant women, young adults, teens and children have low levels of vitamin D. Why? Primarily because new research reports greater need and importance and most people avoid direct sun exposure*. Which form of vitamin D? Vitamin Research Products offers vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol. This form is proven more effective than vitamin D2 for improving blood levels. How much do we need? Experts recommend a minimum daily intake of 1000 IU for adults. Blood tests are the best measure (25-hydroxyvitamin D serum). Healthy blood levels are considered 50 nmol/L (20 ng/mL) and above.
