Vitamin D3 contains 1,000 IU of natural vitamin D3 per softgel.
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin,” is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. Though classified as a vitamin, vitamin D is actually a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy plasma calcium levels. Besides bone support, vitamin D has many other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular function, immune function and inflammatory support.
Numerous scientists now feel that supplementation with vitamin D, at levels greater than previously thought necessary, is critical to helping maintain healthy bone remodeling and healthy vitamin D plasma levels.
Even though the human body can manufacture vitamin D under ideal circumstances, there is strong evidence that much of the American population suffers from a deficiency of the nutrient. This means that supplementation may be important.
