Product Summary

Vitamin D3 Super Strength 5000 IU

Vitamin D3 Super Strength 5000 IU is one of the most useful nutritional tools we have at our disposal for improving overall health.

Description

Our Vitamin D3 Super Strength 5000 IU is unique because cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) is a vitamin derived from 7-dehydrocholesterol; however, vitamin D3 acquires hormone-like actions when cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) is converted to 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3 (calcitriol) by the liver and kidneys. As a hormone, calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function. Vitamin D3 is the only vitamin the body can manufacture from sunlight (UVB). Yet, with today’s indoor living and the extensive use of sunscreens due to concern about skin cancer, we are now a society with millions of individuals deficient in life-sustaining bone building and immune-modulating 1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D3.

For more than a century, scientists have recognised that vitamin D3 is involved in bone health. Research has continued to accumulate, documenting calcitriol’s role in the reduction of the risk of fractures to a significant degree. The latest research, however, shows that 1,25-dihyroxy vitamin D3 deficiency is linked to a surprising number of other health conditions such as depression, back pain, cancer, both insulin resistance and pre-eclampsia during pregnancy, impaired immunity and macular degeneration.

As it becomes clear that vitamin D3 plays a wide role in overall health, it’s becoming equally clear that a large percentage of individuals are deficient in this important nutrient, which has hormone-like activity. The fear of skin cancer has stopped many individuals from obtaining beneficial amounts of sunlight. The skin uses the energy of UVB to convert 7-dehydrocholesterol into vitamin D3. Even individuals, who venture out into the sun often and use suntan lotion, may be deficient in vitamin D3. Furthermore, as we age, we are less equipped to produce sufficient quantities of this vital nutrient. One study found that age-related declines in kidney function may require older people to ingest more vitamin D3 to maintain the same blood levels as younger people.
