D3 Immunity, Balance & Bone Health (You decide your own intake of D3) (Vegetarian)
Vitamin D3 is both a nutrient we eat and a hormone our bodies make. It is a fat-soluble vitamin that has long been known to help the body absorb and retain calcium and phosphorus; both are critical for building bone. Also, laboratory studies show that vitamin D can reduce cancer cell growth, help control infections and reduce inflammation. Many of the body’s organs and tissues have receptors for vitamin D, which suggest important roles beyond bone health, and scientists are actively investigating other possible functions.
Each vegetarian capsule contains 1000 IU of D3 as cholecalciferol, equivalent to 25mcg.
Size: 180 caps
Note: K2D3 offers Vitamin D3 1000iu plus Vitamin K2 which is essential for absorption of D3, If you would like to ramp up your Vitamin D3 intake then purchase Pure Revival D3 (Vitamin D3 1000iu only) my suggestion is take 1 K2D3 plus 2 - 5 capsules of D3 this way you are adjusting your Vitamin D3 intake at the strength you require.
Deficiency in Vitamin D
Skin type: Darker skin, for example, and sunscreen, reduce the body’s ability to absorb the ultraviolet radiation B (UVB) rays from the sun. Absorbing sunlight is essential for the skin to produce vitamin D.
Sunscreen: A sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 can reduce the body’s ability to synthesize the vitamin by 95%. Covering the skin with clothing can inhibit vitamin D production also.
Geographical location: People who live in northern latitudes or areas of high pollution, work night shifts, or are homebound should aim to consume vitamin D supplements.
Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body. It assists in:
- promoting healthy bones and teeth
- supporting immune, brain, and nervous system health
- regulating insulin levels and supporting diabetes management
- supporting lung function and cardiovascular health
- influencing the expression of genes involved in cancer development
