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
-Helps Maintain Strong Bones
-Supports Dental Health
NOW Vitamin D 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 ultra-violet 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.
