Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 5000iu capsules from Supplement Tree provide a maximum strength natural vitamin D3 supplement of 5000iu per capsule.
Vitamin D3 is the form of vitamin D that is made in the body and therefore is far easier to absorb and retain than other forms. Supplement Tree Vitamin D3 is also suspended in Olive Oil to further aid absorption into your body.
Vitamin D3 has long been recognised for its many benefits, most notably its contribution to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth where it plays a key role in ensuring a sufficient level of calcium is present in bones. Other benefits of vitamin D3 include boosting the activity of immune cells and a further contribution to both heart and brain health.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient and is found in Cod liver oil, vitamin D-fortified foods, egg yolks and butter. However, the majority of vitamin D in the body is created during a chemical reaction that starts with sunlight exposure to the skin. This is why vitamin D is often referred to as the sunshine vitamin.
Unfortunately due to concerns about skin cancer many of don’t get the safe sun exposure we need to generate sufficient vitamin D. In fact, during the months of October to April those in the UK need to supplement with vitamin D as at this time of year the sunlight we do get is at the wrong frequency to stimulate vitamin D production. As a general rule of thumb if your shadow is taller than you then no vitamin D is being produced.
There has been a vast amount of research into Vitamin D in recent years, with the optimum dose for people in the UK being 1100iu – 1200iu. This 5000iu supplement is provided for those who require an increased dose.
