  • What Is It?

    Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, a
    key nutritional role in supporting healthy bones, and may
    play a potential role in cardiovascular, colon and cellular
    health. Vitamin D levels have been shown to decline with
    age, due primarily to a reduction in either absorption or
    metabolism by the liver. Decreased exposure to sunlight, a
    vegetarian diet, or a low intake of vitamin D fortified foods
    also play a role in inadequate vitamin D levels.

    Uses For Vitamin D3

    Bone Health: Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium
    and phosphorous absorption and reduces urinary
    calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining
    proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone
    composition. Clinical studies involving vitamin D
    supplementation suggest the importance of vitamin D in
    addition to calcium for bone health. Vitamin D supplementation
    alone may also support bone health.

    Cardiovascular Support: Vitamin D may also provide
    cardiovascular support for some individuals, which
    may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or
    possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin

    Cellular Health: Studies suggest vitamin D supports
    colon health by promoting healthy cellular function.
    Vitamin D is also believed to provide general cellular
    support potential, including breast and prostate cells, in
    part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis
    balance, supporting immune cell activity and maintaining
    healthy cell metabolism. Preliminary evidence suggests
    that vitamin D may also play a role in maintaining healthy
    glucose metabolism, since vitamin D receptors are
    present on the islet cells of the pancreas.

    What Is The Source?

    Vitamin D3 is derived from the cholesterol in lanolin, the fat
    found in wool. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from
    pine cellulose. Medium chain triglycerides (Vitamin D3
    liquid only) are derived from coconut and palm oil.
