VITAMIN D3 2000 i.u. contains vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in convenient softgels. Vitamin D3 is the bio-identical form of vitamin D synthesized in the body from cholesterol, following activation by the UV rays in sunlight. This form is excellent for maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D in the body. Mounting evidence suggests roles for vitamin D not only in bone health, but also in supporting immune, neurological, musculoskeletal, cellular, and cardiovascular health.
Directions: One capsule per day with meals, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Medical note: Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that if taken in excess can be health-adverse. Vitamin D levels in the body are assessed by a blood test for 25-hydroxy-vitamin D by a licensed health-care practitioner. Optimal levels for 25 hydroxy vitamin D are in the range of 40 – 60 ng/ml, though some authorities favor higher levels. The 2000 IU’s in this supplement are safe and needed by most people. Some people need higher dosages, but I do not recommend taking higher dosages without monitoring by blood tests.
