Description

Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is one of the 4 essential fat-soluble vitamins. It is the active form of vitamin D, which means that it is the only type of vitamin D that will be able to work appropriately within the body. Vitamin D has a cholesterol-based structure and acts more similar to a hormone than a vitamin, despite the name.

 

  • Vitamin D, along with calcium, plays a significant role in maintaining bone mineral density.*
  • Vitamin D is being researched for its ability to reduce risk of certain types of cancer.*
  • The signaling effects of vitamin D may enhance testosterone synthesis and reduce fat mass.*

 

With wide-reaching health implications, vitamin D has become a hot topic – specifically in regards to what the optimal levels of vitamin D intake may be. Agencies, such as the Institute of Medicine and the Endocrine Society, are at odds over the necessary amount of Vitamin D. At the upper end, the desired blood levels are attained with a supplemental dose of 5,000 IU – the exact amount contained in Vitamin D3™.

FAQs

Q: What is the best way to take Vitamin D3™?

A: As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving (1 softgel) once daily with food.

 

Q: I live in the northern half of the United States. Should I supplement vitamin D?

A: Yes. Supplementation may not be needed during the summer depending on your sunlight exposure, but anyone above 37 degrees latitude is producing little to no vitamin D from sun exposure. The 37th parallel is right about at the top of Virginia and Texas and just south of San Francisco California. Even those in the southern states should consider vitamin D supplementation if their sun exposure is limited.

 

Q: Can I take Vitamin D3™ with any other Optitune products?

A: Yes, for joint and bone health, stack with Ultra Cissus™.
