Vitamin D-3 (as cholecalciferol) is known as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because it is formed in the body by the action of the sun’s ultraviolet rays on the skin.
Vitamin D-3 is known for its ability to build bone strength and density to aid in the prevention of bone-related diseases such as osteoporosis and rickets. (1)
In Addition to supporting Bone Health, Vitamin D-3 is involved in the biology of all the cells and tissues in our bodies and plays a vital role in many of our body’s biological functions that include: Heart Health, Brain Health, Immune System Support, and Genetic Expression. (1,2,4,5)
Vitamin D-3 Supports
Bone Health: Vitamin D-3 increases your body’s ability to absorb calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc through your intestinal tract to support Bone Health. (1)
Heart Health: Vitamin D-3 is used by many cells in the cardiovascular system including heart muscle cells and the cells that line blood vessels. (2)
Brain Health: Studies indicate vitamin D can lower the risk of Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, dementia, and depression. (3)
Immune System: Vitamin D turns on key peptides in your immune system that trigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing you to effectively fight off invaders before they can develop into infections. (4)
Gene Expression: D-3 is converted into a hormone that is able to carry out its numerous necessary functions. D-3 activates the unwrapping of your DNA which facilitates protein synthesis needed for human life. (5)
Low levels of Vitamin D in the blood have been linked to an increased risk of:
- Cardiovascular Disease (2)
- Cancer (6)
- Diabetes (7)
- Osteoarthritis (1)
- Dementia (3)
- Immune System Disorders (4)
Are You Getting Enough D-3?
An Estimated 57% of Adults in the United States have Severe Vitamin D-3 deficiencies and in areas, with minimal sun exposure, these estimates can be as high as 90%.
The Best Form of Vitamin of D-3 is Sunlight. However, Most people are unable to get enough exposure to sunlight to provide them with adequate levels of D-3 and living in a sunny climate does not guarantee against vitamin D-3 deficiencies.
The elderly are more prone to this deficiency since their capacity to activate vitamin D in the skin is reduced as we age.
The high rates of Vitamin D-3 deficiencies in the US has prompted the FDA to increase their daily recommended allowance of D-3 from 100 IUs (International Units) per day to a daily recommendation of 400-600 IUs per day, while many doctors and health professional recommend an average daily intake between 4000-10000 IUs of Vitamin D-3 per day.
Factors that can contribute to Vitamin D deficiencies:
- Limited Sun Exposure
- Increased Use of Sunscreens
- Having Dark Skin
- Being Overweight
- Increased amounts of time spent indoors
It is important to know the level of D-3 in your blood.
When visiting your doctor ask to have D-3 added to the list of items for your blood work as it is not normally included in routine blood tests. Ideally, your level should be around 50.
Our D-3 is available in 5000 IU gelcaps and is guaranteed to meet your High-Quality Standards.
