Vitamin D3, 400 IU- 100 soft gels
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps maintain healthy bones by stimulating the absorption of calcium in the body. The body has the ability to make vitamin D naturally when exposed to sunlight. During the winter months however the bodys vitamin D stores are low increasing the risk of deficiency. Sunscreens also block the bodys ability to make vitamin D from sunlight. Vitamin D deficiency can contribute to accelerate bone loss and reduced calcium utilization. Our Vitamin D softgels provide a natural source of this important fat-soluble vitamin.

† Daily Value not established.
Recently vitamin D deficiency has been referred to as the silent epidemic. It is estimated that 40% of the population over the age of 50 has a deficiency in this nutrient. Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones by stimulating the absorption of calcium in the body. Without vitamin D the body is unable to utilize the calcium supplied via the diet or supplements. The body has the ability to make vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Therefore it is recommended that people living in northern latitudes or not exposed to the sunlight should supplement with vitamin D. In addition research shows that the use of sunscreens also limits the bodys ability to make vitamin D from sunlight. A study of women in Bangor Maine showed a loss of 3% of their bone mass during the winter. This loss of bone mass was related to a decrease in their vitamin D levels. Even though the RDA is set at 400 IU many experts recommend 600-800 IU especially for those at risk for deficiency such as the elderly night shift workers and those living in the northern latitudes.
Where does the vitamin D3 source cholecalciferol come from
The vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol used in most of our multi&rsquos is derived from oil extracted from sheep wool. This is considered a vegetarian source the animal is not harmed just sheared but not vegan. Thus our multiples listed as &ldquovegetarian” are not considered vegan. In some of our multi&rsquos and in vitamin A & D products the vitamin D3 cholecalciferol is from fish oil.
