Vitamin D-3 (2000IU) Overview
Vitamin D has become an essential and universally-recommended 'nutrient' the benefits and importance of which can't be overstated. Vitamin D can be supplemented and absorbed from food, but it's actually a hormone that we naturally and easily produce upon exposure to bright sunlight. Fortified foods don't provide much vitamin D and since most people don't have exposure to bright sunlight (or sunlamps) most of the time, vitamin D supplements are the most practical way of accommodating your body's daily vitamin D needs. Recommended doses of vitamin D keep climbing; whereas once 400 IU vitamin D supplements were the standard, the higher potency formulas like this 2000 IU capsule from Source Naturals are increasingly preferred and recommended.
Vitamin D-3 (2000IU) Description from Source Naturals
Sunlight is a source of life on Earth, but we may not be aware of all the ways it benefits us. Our bodies manufacture vitamin D-3 when the skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight, but the ability to do so decreases as we age. Vitamin D-3 helps maintain healthy calcium and phosphorus levels in the body for strong bones, it helps maintain muscle strength in older adults, and it also plays an active role in a healthy immune response. Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) is the optimal form of vitamin D. It is the form of vitamin D that the body manufactures in sunlight, and the form most efficient for the body's needs.
