Vitamin D-3 (1000IU) Description from Meridian Naturals
Meridian Naturals Vitamin D3
Meridian Naturals Vitamin D3 contains the cholecalciferol form of this important nutrient in the recommended dose of 1,000 IUs per serving. Even people who get sun exposure may be deficient in Vitamin D3 (sunlight is one way we obtain Vitamin D). And we age, we are less equipped to produce sufficient quantities of Vitamin D3.
Why Do We Need Vitamin D3
One of the best known benefits of Vitamin D3 is its ability to improve bone health. Vitamin D3 is also responsible for regulating T cells, which are important for a strong immune system.
In 2008, the American Public Health Association adopted 12 new health policies including recognizing that vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are major public health concerns for both children and adults in the United States, leading to muscle weakness, osteoporosis and other health concerns.
Why Meridian Naturals Vitamin D3 is Your Best Choice
The American Academy of Dermatology recently issued a position statement stressing the importance of getting enough vitamin D without overexposing yourself to too much sunlight or by using tanning machines. They recommend getting vitamin D from supplements, like Meridian Naturals Vitamin D3, along with foods rich in vitamin D.
Sources of Vitamin D include fatty fish such as salmon, fortified dairy products such as milk, and eggs and liver. If you're a vegan, vegetarian, or don't consume adequate amounts of these foods, you could be deficient in Vitamin D.
Meridian Naturals Vitamin D3 is a vegetarian formula, so even if you're a vegan or vegetarian, you can still get your recommended amount of Vitamin D3 for good bone health and strong immunity.
