Vitamin D3 600 IU (60 Tablets)
Vitamin Supplement Vitamin D has become one of the most highly recommended dietary supplements over the last few years by healthcare professionals. Vitamin D is not technically an essential vitamin, since the body naturally synthesizes the “sunshine vitamin” through a chemical reaction between the sun’s UV rays and the cholesterol on your skin. Nevertheless, it has been estimated that approximately 70% of North Americans have Vitamin D deficiencies. This is due to a combination of factors – low levels of sunlight for most of the year, obesity, sun avoidance, and low consumption of foods high in Vitamin D such as fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sardines). Inadequate Vitamin D in the body often leads to conditions such as rickets and osteomalacia, which bring on symptoms like bone and muscle pain, enlarged joints, and easily fractured bones. Given the high prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency, this could be the most essential of all the conditionally essential vitamins. Vitamin D3 is the active form of vitamin D. It is sourced from sheep’s wool and easily absorbed by the body. Research suggests that an adequate supply of Vitamin D can help maintain normal blood sugar levels and support blood pressure already within normal range, when taken as part of a well-balanced diet. Vitamin D may help promote a healthy immune response as well by activating T and B cells of the immune system. In fact, without sufficient Vitamin D levels, the immune system cannot function properly to resist infection. According to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survery (NHANES III), a goverment program of studies used to assess the health and nutritional status of adults and children, many Americans have low levels of this crucially important vitamin. Other research shows that higher potencies of Vitamin D are required to adequately raise blood levels to sufficiency. Although an interaction between sunlight and cholesterol in the skin can form the precursor to Vitamin D, darker skin, aging of the skin, the use of sunscreens, and a decrease in sunshine during the winter months make this impractical for many.
