Vitamin D3 5000 IU 120C
Vitamin D is a vitamin that is critical for calcium absorption and retention. It is synthesized in the body from sunlight. There are very few dietary sources of vitamin D, so supplementation is necessary for most people. The form of Vitamin D that seems to be most bioavailable for humans is Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol.
- Clinical studies have suggested the necessity of Vitamin D for bone health because it promotes calcium and phosphorus absorption. Data shows that it may prevent rickets in children and osteomalacia (softening of bones) in adults.
- Vitamin D has an important role in neuromuscular and immune function
- Vitamin D may also be beneficial for cardiovascular support
- Many people seem to be deficient when tested for serum vitamin D levels which could be a problem since many cells in the body have vitamin D receptors thus making it important for overall health
