Quick Overview

    Product Description

    • Hypoallergenic
    • 5000 IU D3

    Vitamin D deficiency is quite common, particularly among the elderly. A study conducted at a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, found an almost universal deficiency in vitamin D among a group of 548 elderly patients who were admitted for hip fractures. Likewise, low vitamin D levels have been associated with increased risk for multiple sclerosis, myofascial pain, and certain forms of cancer.

    Treatment of colds and influenza with pharmacological doses of vitamin D may only be the tip of the infectious disease iceberg. Vitamin D-sensitive antimicrobial peptides (AMP) have been identified that inhibit the HIV virus. Invasive pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, and group
    A streptococcal disease (all three sensitive to AMP) are more common when vitamin D levels are lowest in winter, raising the possibility that pharmacological doses of vitamin D would be an effective adjuvant treatment. In fact, the dramatically increased production of AMPs by vitamin D and the broad spectrum of action of AMP make it reasonable to hypothesize that pharmacological doses of vitamin D are effective adjuvants in treating a large number of infections.

    Deficient individuals may need 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D daily to replenish tissue stores. With these patients specifically in mind, Thorne’s D-5000 supplies 5,000 IU of pure vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule.

    The most helpful favorable review

    I have been using this product since Nov. I learned via blood tests that my Vitamin D levels where at 14 (optimal should be about 50-60, my doctor said). After taking an average of one pill per day for about 4 or 5 months, my number went up to 49! This is a GOOD thing! My energy levels have increased and I feel better all around. And it is not expensive, either. : )

      I really like the Thorne vitamine D3 5000 IU It is one of the highest per capsule per vitamin D on the market. It offers immediate relief and healing benefits in just one night. Over the long term I hardly ever get sick and recovery is much faster.

    • Superior Quality!

      My wife "SWEARS" by this particular Vitamin D3 Supplement.

      She says that she can "feel" the difference. I simply cannot argue with that since I was taking some other brand myself.

      She was turned on to the Thorne Brand by a respectable Nauturalpath Clinic. The swear by it too!

      Good Stuff.

      Fantastic product! We were started on this by our naturopath when we lived in the Northwest, and it made a HUGE difference. Highly recommend to anyone needing a "little more sunshine" in their lives!
