Life Extension Vitamin D3 - Vitamin D is Vital to Many Healthy Body Functions
Vitamin D3 can be obtained through your skin when you are exposed to ultraviolet-B (UVB) light radiation from sunlight. Unfortunately, due to the shorter days and increased body coverage during the winter season, cloudy weather conditions, and sun screen usage, your body’s ability to produce enough vitamin D may be limited. These reasons explain the need to take a daily vitamin D supplement.
Vitamin D has long shown to be a significant support for healthy bones and bone density. However, scientists have also proven the vital role that vitamin D has in regulating healthy cell division and differentiation, and its profound effect it has on the immune system. These same scientific studies have linked a vitamin D deficiency to many common age-related problems.
With mounting evidence of widespread vitamin D deficiency, many nutritional scientists are suggesting that Americans increase their vitamin D intake to at least 1,000 IU per day. Life Extension recommends that healthy adults take at least 2000 IU's of a vitamin D supplement every day. Elderly adults may benefit from higher doses such as 5,000 IU daily up to 10,000 IU daily. The objective of taking a vitamin D supplement is to achieve an optimal 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood level of 50 ng/mL (and higher).
Vitamin D is included in the multinutrient Life Extension Mix™ and the multivitamin Two-Per-Day Tablets in the amount of 2,000 IU.
Individuals already getting 1,000 IU - 3,000 IU of vitamin D in their multi-nutrient formulas, this 5,000 IU potency is what your body may need to achieve optimal vitamin D blood levels.
Life Extension Vitamin D3 has an upgraded delivery system from capsules to a small, easy to swallow softgel form with no vegetable stearate or allergen ingredients.
