Healthy Origins Vitamin D3 1,000 IU is a key nutrient manufactured in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary to help support the growth, development, and maintenance of bones and teeth in adults and children.
Vitamin D3 is also required for calcium and phosphorus absorption and utilization. In its active form, Vitamin D3 works with calcium to help control bone formation.
Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. Vitamin D deficiency is one of the more common medical conditions throughout the world. The winter season and many sunblock products inhibit the body’s ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply.
No doubt, you’re probably familiar with the role of vitamin D in promoting healthy bones, largely by promoting the absorption of calcium. “If you have a vitamin D deficiency, particularly in your older years, it can lead to osteoporosis or osteomalacia [bone softening],” says Lona Sandon, RD, assistant professor of clinical nutrition at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas.
But there is recent and mounting evidence that links low levels of the vitamin to an increased risk of type 1 diabetes, muscle and bone pain, and, perhaps more serious, cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, esophagus, and lymphatic system.
