Vitamin D3 5,000 IU (100 Capsules)
Vitamin D3 capsules supply a naturally derived and bioavailable version of vitamin D known as cholecalciferol or vitamin D3.
Supports bone health and density: Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus and utilize these minerals to support a healthy bone matrix and bone density.
Vitamin D is inadequate in many individuals and daily need appears to be higher than previously thought. The role of vitamin D in calcium metabolism and bone health is well known. However, it has many other important physiologic roles that are not as well appreciated. Vitamin D receptors are widely distributed in the body, including colon, prostate, breast, and ovary, where it acts to inhibit the excessive growth of body cells and tissues and helps cells mature normally.† Adequate amounts of vitamin D come from consistent exposure to sunshine and are difficult to obtain from dietary sources. Postmenopausal women, older individuals, and those with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. In the diet, this fat-soluble vitamin occurs naturally in only a few foods, such as mushrooms and some types of fish.
