Vitamin D3 1000IU 250 Softgel
Vitamin D3 can be synthesized by humans in the skin upon exposure to ultraviolet-B UVB radiation from sunlight. But, due to the winter season, weather conditions, and sun screen usage, the bodys ability to produce optimal vitamin D levels may be inhibited.1 These factors point to the value of taking a daily vitamin D supplement.
Vitamin D has long provided significant support for healthy bone density.2-7 However, scientists have also validated the critical role that vitamin D plays in regulating healthy cell division and differentiation, and its profound effects on human immunity.8-15 These findings link a deficiency of vitamin D to a host of common age-related problems.
As a result of evidence of widespread vitamin D deficiency, prominent nutritional scientists are calling on Americans to increase their vitamin D intake to 1,000 IU per day and higher. Life Extension recommends that healthy adults supplement each day with at least 2,000 IU of vitamin D. Elderly adults may benefit from higher doses such as 5,000 IU daily up to 10,000 IU daily. The objective of taking a vitamin D supplement is to achieve an optimal 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood level of 50 ng/mL and higher .
Individuals consuming more than 2,000 IU/day of vitamin D from diet and supplements should periodically obtain a serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D measurement. Do not exceed 10,000 IU per day unless recommended by your doctor. Vitamin D supplementation is not recommended for individuals with high blood calcium levels.
