Description

Benefits

The benefits of supplementing Vitamin D3 are most clearly seen in individuals that do not get prolonged exposure to sunlight (as exposure to sunlight produces Vitamin D in the body naturally). It is theorized that a majority of individuals are deficient in Vitamin D; unfortunately a blood test is required to identify if an individual is deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus which promotes healthy bones, teeth, and muscles. Additionally Vitamin D was studied in healthy people and is shown to have a positive impact on genes linked to infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Studies have shown that Vitamin D deficiencies are associated with higher risks of the above diseases.

Dosage

1 softgel capsule daily. Do not exceed 1 softgel daily unless recommended by your physician.

Toxicity

According to the Mayo Clinic hypervitaminosis D (also known is Vitamin D toxicity) occurs after several months of taking a mega dose of 50,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily. Individuals supplementing with Vitamin D3 should consider taking a Vitamin K2 supplement, as it is responsible for moving calcium around the body and therefore helpful in preventing calcium buildups and hypervitaminosis D.

Vitamin D Benefits

Vitamin D supplementation is associated with many benefits including bone health, increased immunity and increased cognition. Research shows supplemental vitamin D can also reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and multiple sclerosis.
Vitamin D is produced from cholesterol, given there is enough UV light from sun exposure. Many are deficient in vitamin D because there is only a sufficient amount of UV sunlight when the UV index is 3 or above. Such an index only occurs year-round at locations near the equator, between the 37th parallels.

Vitamin D Studies & Side Effects
Studies show that approximately one billion people worldwide having a deficiency in Vitamin D. Research indicates that supplementing Vitamin D greatly decreases risk of falls and bone breaks by stimulating calcium deposition in bones, making them stronger and healthier. One study looked at vitamin D levels and cognitive performance in more than 3,100 men aged 40 to 79 and concluded that men with lower vitamin D levels exhibited slower information-processing speed.

Thus far, it appears the majority of research conducted on Vitamin D centers around bone and joint health as well as cognitive health,
