Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary to help
support the growth, development, and maintenance of
bones and teeth in both adults and children. It is also
required for calcium and phosphorous absorption and
utilization. In its active form, vitamin D works with
calcium to help control bone formation by helping to
regulate calcium levels in the blood.
Vitamin D’s influence on the key biological functions
vital to one’s health and well-being mandates that
vitamin D no longer be ignored by the health care
industry nor by individuals striving to achieve and
maintain a greater state of health.
Health Origins® Vitamin D3 2,400 is key nutrient manufactured in a highly absorbable liquid softgel from. Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. The winter season and most all 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.
Why Vitamin D3 and not Vitamin D2?
Not all forms of vitamin D work equally well in humans.
Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) should be used in preference
to vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), researchers said in a study
published in the October, 2006, issue of the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Vitamin D2 has been
predominantly used in North America for vitamin D
supplements, but Houghton, LA and Vieth, R, authors of
the study from Acadia University said that an increasing
body of evidence suggests that vitamin D3 has a greater
bio-efficacy. In this study the authors also claimed
vitamin D2 is inferior to vitamin D3 because vitamin D2
in synthetic form is less stable and has more impurities,
which could potentially lead to a high risk of toxicity1.
Suggested Usage:Take 1 softgel per day, preferably with meal. Do not exceed one softgel during a 24 hour period.
