Healthy Cell, Bone and Immune Support
Nicknamed the "sunshine vitamin" because the body makes it naturally when exposed to the sun, scientists are discovering that vitamin D-3 is an important hormone precursor that supports healthy immune system function and helps regulate the health of at least 20 different tissues, including the brain and joints.* It also plays an important role in regulating cell growth and bone formation.*
Researchers are finding that the current recommended daily allowances of vitamin D—200 international units for infants, children and adults up to age 50 years; 400 IU for men and women from 50 to 70; and 600 IU for people older than 70—may be far lower than what is necessary for optimum health. That’s why Source Naturals offers Vitamin D-3 in 400 IU, 1,000 IU and 2,000 IU tablets; 2000 IU softgels, 5000 IU capsules, and as a convenient liquid.
Total Body Vitamin
Vitamin D addresses seven of the twelve SystemiCareTM deep metabolic systems of the body, systems crucial to vibrant health: Cells/ DNA, Metabolism, Hormones, Cognition/ Nerves, Immunity, and Structure/ Connective Tissue.*
Healthy Cell Proliferation
Vitamin D research is an emerging area of interest for scientists, who have yet to understand the many roles of this important vitamin in the body. While vitamin D’s main function is to maintain normal levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood, vitamin D also serves as a hormone precursor.* Once it has been converted into its active form, it can enter a cell, cross the nuclear membrane, attach to specific receptors on the DNA or its protein wrapping, and promote cell differentiation.* Vitamin D is one of the body’s many control systems, acting like an emergency brake to stop cells from perilously misbehaving.*
Important Immune System Function and Health Booster
Some studies suggest that vitamin D may aid neurological health, joint health and function, and support healthy blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.*
Vitamin D and Bone Health
Having normal storage levels of vitamin D in the body helps keep bones strong.*
