-Corrects Vitamin D deficiency
Facts and Functions
Vitamin D3 capsules supply a high-potency amount of naturally derived vitamin D, called D3. This fat soluble vitamin occurs naturally in only a few foods, thus is often fortified in milk and other products. Vitamin D can also be formed in the body upon adequate exposure of the skin to sunlight. Its major biological function is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works with a number of other vitamins, minerals and hormones to promote bone mineralization, glucose metabolism, neuromuscular function, and overall health. When intake of vitamin D is below recommended levels or exposure to sunlight is limited, deficiencies can result. Poor absorption and impaired kidney function can also compromise vitamin D status. Adequate vitamin D along with a healthy diet and exercise program may be important ways to reduce risk.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. The use of high quality cholecalciferol dissolved in pure extra virgin olive oil makes this supplement highly absorbable.
