Vitamin D-3 (5000IU) Overview
NOW Foods’ Vitamin D-3 (5000IU) contains a high-potency and pure form of cholecalciferol, commonly known as Vitamin D-3. Although your body naturally produces ample amounts of Vitamin D when exposed to ultraviolet (UVB) rays like those from the sun, scientific studies support benefits from super-physiological doses of Vitamin D-3 that can only be achieved through supplementation. NOW’s Vitamin D-3 (5000IU) provides a super dose of high-potency Vitamin D, enough that you only need to take one softgel every few days.
Vitamin D-3 is beginning to gain a lot of popularity in the media and has earned the name “super vitamin” because of its extensive health benefits. Vitamin D-3 supplementation has been shown to help support optimal immune function, improve mineral absorption, protect against the common cold, support healthy brain function, strengthen joints & bones and improve natural testosterone levels among many other positive benefits. Along with fish oil, a multivitamin and protein, Vitamin D-3 should be one of your dietary staples that never leaves your supplement protocol.
Vitamin D-3 (5000IU) Description from Now
NOW Vitamin D-3 softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly-absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However, it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.
