Quick Overview

    Product Description

    What Is It?
    Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, a key nutritional role in supporting healthy bones, and may play a potential role in cardiovascular, colon and cellular health. Vitamin D levels have been shown to decline with age, due primarily to a reduction in either absorption or metabolism by the liver. Decreased exposure to sunlight, a vegetarian diet, or a low intake of vitamin D fortified foods also play a role in inadequate vitamin D levels.

    Uses For Vitamin D3

    Bone Health: Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Clinical studies involving
    vitamin D supplementation suggest the importance of vitamin D in addition to calcium for bone health. Vitamin D supplementation alone may also support bone health.

    Cardiovascular Support: Vitamin D may also provide cardiovascular support for some individuals, which may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin function.

    Cellular Health: Studies suggest vitamin D supports colon health by promoting healthy cellular function. Vitamin D is also believed to provide general cellular support potential, including breast and prostate cells, in part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis balance, supporting immune cell activity and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. Preliminary evidence suggests that vitamin D may also play a role in maintaining healthy glucose metabolism, since vitamin D receptors are present on the
    islet cells of the pancreas.

    What Is The Source?
    Vitamin D3 is derived from the cholesterol in lanolin, the fat found in wool. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. Medium chain triglycerides (Vitamin D3 liquid only) are derived from coconut and palm oil.

    Recommendations
    Pure Encapsulations provides vitamin D3 capsules in 3 amounts (400 i.u., 1,000 i.u. and 5,000 i.u.) and vitamin D3 liquid.

    Recommendations are as follows:
    Vitamin D3 400 i.u. = 1-2 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals.
    Vitamin D3 1,000 i.u. = 1-5 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals.
    Vitamin D3 5,000 i.u. = 1 capsule per day, with a meal.
    Vitamin D3 liquid = 1 or more drops daily, with a meal.

    Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
    It is recommended that individuals using more than 2,000 i.u. vitamin D per day have their blood levels monitored. Large doses of vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia, signs include headache, weakness, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Individuals with hyperparathyroidism or kidney disease are at particular risk. Vitamin D3 1,000 i.u. and vitamin D3 5,000 i.u. are not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking vitamin D3 400 i.u.

    Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
    Vitamin D may result in hypercalcemia in certain individuals taking digoxin or thiazide diuretics. Consult your physician for more information.
