Why It's an Essential Vitamin?
Vitamin D,also known as Cholecalciferol, can be found in cells throughout the entire body. It is necessary for calcium and phosphorus absorption to build and maintain strong bones and teeth, provide immune system support, and for healthy muscle function.*
Can't You Get Vitamin D From the Sun?
Often referred to as the "sunshine vitamin," vitamin D3 is synthesized when bare skin is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) light. However, studies show that most people do not get the recommended amount from sunlight alone. Factors that can inhibit vitamin D3 production include the time of day sun exposure occurs, season, latitude, skin color, age, clothing, and sunscreen use. In fact, according to Mayo Clinic, 25% to 50% or more of the general population may be vitamin D deficient. NatureWise Vitamin D3 delivers the same biologically active form of vitamin D produced in the body as a result of direct sunlight -- without the risk of unprotected UVB exposure.
Vitamin D is fat-soluble and the amount absorbed from a serving can be greatly affected by factors like obesity, age, genetics, dietary deficiencies, and medical conditions. Most health organizations agree that a range of 30-80 ng/mg accounts for sufficient levels of vitamin D. The Vitamin D Council recommends that adults take 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily to achieve and maintain optimal levels. This recommendation is based on research that shows at least 97% of people will attain levels above 30 ng/mg at this do/se, without risk of toxicity.*
