Helps Maintain Strong Bones
Vitamin D3 softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.
Vitamin D is normally produced in the skin as a result of exposure to UV light from the sun. However, the use of sunscreens, aging avoidance of sun exposure, and living in the northern latitudes can significantly reduce vitamin D production by the body. Vitamin D can also be obtained through the diet and some sources include fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products.
The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain healthy blood levels of calcium and phosphorus.* By promoting calcium absorption, Vitam D helps to form and maintain strong bones.* Vitamin D also works in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization.* In addition, Vitamin D plays an important role in immune function, helps to regulate cell growth and differentiation.*

Although the Upper Limit for Vitamin D supplementation is 2,000 IU per day, comprehensive research reviews demonstrate that dosages up to 10,000 IU per day are safe. However, large doses of supplemental Vitamin D should be taken only under the supervision of a health care professional. Individuals taking more than 2000 IU per day should have their vitamin D levels monitored. In addition, supplemental Vitamin D should be used cautiously by those taking digoxin or any other cardiac glycoside, as well as by anyone with hypercalcemia.
