Vitamin D is essential to your overall health. Contrary to popular belief‚ calcium intake alone isn't enough to support strong bones. In fact‚ your body needs vitamin D3 in order to promote effective absorption of calcium and phosphorous in the intestines. It works with these minerals to support good bone composition‚ keeping your skeleton strong and bones less likely to break.
Furthermore‚ it may reduce the level of calcium lost through the urine. While it works best when combined with calcium‚ a supplement like Pure Encapsulations' Vitamin D3 1‚000 IU may also be effective alone.
Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption, and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and healthy bone composition. Research indicates that it also supports immune cell activity, maintains healthy cell metabolism, and promotes cellular health—including support for breast and prostate tissue, in part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis balance. A role for vitamin D in supporting colon health by promoting healthy cellular function has also been suggested.
Vitamin D's role in immune health has long been established; vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation. Vitamin D also supports cardiovascular function in some individuals.‡
All of your cells require vitamin D: these include the cells in the colon‚ breasts‚ and prostate. This nutrient may support cellular health by helping maintain a good balance of angiogenesis‚ a physiological process that involves the growth of new capillary blood vessels; in excess‚ this process can lead to health problems. The vitamin may also promote cardiovascular health by maintaining healthy functioning of plasma renin.
Each vegetarian capsule provides 1‚000 international units (IU) of vitamin D3. D3‚ also known as cholecalciferol‚ is the most bioavailable (easily absorbed) form of the vitamin; it's identical to the vitamin D the human body produces naturally through exposure to sunlight. This supplement is a convenient way to ensure sufficient intake if you live in a cold climate or spend most days indoors. Dietary sources include fortified milk‚ eggs‚ cod liver oil‚ and some types of fish.
Take one to five capsules per day with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ one 250-capsule bottle of Vitamin D3 1‚000 IU by Pure Encapsulations should last from 50 days to over eight months.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.
