Vitamin D3 5000 IU 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.
Vitamin D3 5000 IU Dosage
1 softgel capsule daily. Do not exceed 1 softgel daily unless recommended by your physician.
Vitamin D3 5000 IU 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.
