Vitamin D3 Softgel
Vitamin D3 SoftgelAn essential, fat-soluble vitamin that is required for proper bone formation and normal development of teeth.
What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D, also known as calciferol, is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that is required for proper bone formation and normal development of teeth, especially in growing children. It builds bone mass and enhances calcium absorption and utilization, helping strengthen the bones and teeth. Vitamin D also assists in the absorption of phosphorus by the gastrointestinal tract. It helps prevent muscle weakness and is known to aid in heartbeat regulation. It also enables your blood to clot properly and your thyroid to function optimally.
Vitamin D is known to activate immune cells particularly when the body is experiencing microbial imbalance. It has been also observed to regulate cell growth, especially rapidly multiplying cells.
Where does vitamin D come from?
The human body can manufacture vitamin D provided that the skin is exposed to enough amounts of ultraviolet rays from the sun. It can also be obtained from animal foods such as:
- egg yolks
- fish liver oil
- dairy products (milk, cheese, butter)
- fatty fish (tuna, salmon, halibut, sardines)
- vegetable oils
- dandelion greens
- sweet potatoes
Who may be deficient in vitamin D?
For some reason though, certain people cannot convert the sun's ultraviolet rays into sufficient amounts of vitamin D. People who may not be getting enough vitamin D are:
- overweight and obese people, who do better with ingested vitamin D than with the cutaneous synthesis of the vitamin via sun exposure
- people who do not have the time to stay under the sun for at least 15 minutes a day or 30 minutes two to three times a day due to their busy schedules
- older people who do not spend enough time for sufficient sun exposure
- people who live far from the equator. The United States is far from the equator, which means that you may still not be getting enough sunlight even if you live in sunny California or Florida. Statistics say that 80% of Americans are vitamin D deficient
- certain ethnicities with darker skin such Africans and Latinos
- post-menopausal women due to hormonal changes
- people living in elevated or very cold regions
- those who apply sunscreen regularly
The best type of vitamin D and optimum dosages
Apricot Power's Vitamin D supplement is in the form of D3 or cholecalciferol, a type of D vitamin more easily utilized by the body compared to vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol. Our vitamin D3 supplement is made of wool oil and not fish liver oil for enhanced absorption. Vitamin D experts recommend a daily dose of 1,000-2,000 IU (international units), although some say (without disregarding the fact that vitamin D is fat soluble) that the safe upper limit is up to 4,000 IU a day. Toxicity has only been seen in adults taking daily doses of 100,000 IU over a prolonged period of time.
