The Importance of Vitamin D3
The vast majority of health experts will agree that vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients to overall health, and D3 is the preferred form of that nutrient.
We don't get much D3 from our diets. Instead our body produces it when our skin is exposed to the sun. But without enough sunlight exposure - you could be depleted.
Jarrow Formulas offers its Vitamin D3 2500 IU as a way to get levels back to where they should be. It may be most beneficial to those with a known vitamin D deficiency.
Your body uses D3 or cholecalciferol to support calcium uptake for bone health. Essentially, it helps deposit calcium into your bones.
But D3 may also be important for your immune system as well as the health of many other parts of the body such as the breasts, colon and prostate. That's because it is involved in normal cell differentiation (changing of cell function).
- High-potency D3 (cholecalciferol) supplement
- Supports calcium uptake and bone metabolism
- Promotes immune system function
- May support breast, colon and prostate health
Your kidneys convert cholecalciferol into the hormone known as calcitriol, which is also the active form of vitamin D3. Calcitriol enhances absorption of calcium and phosphorous - two nutrients needed for healthy bones. Calcitriol also promotes production of osteocalcin - the predominant structural protein in bones.
Whether it's for bone health, immune system function or any other aspect of your health, ask your doctor about choosing Vitamin D3 2500 IU from Jarrow Formulas.
