Essential for Strong Bones and Teeth*
Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption in the gut and maintains adequate serum calcium and phosphate concentrations to enable normal mineralization of bone and to prevent hypocalcemic tetany (a disease caused by an abnormally low level of calcium in the blood). It is also needed for bone growth and bone remodeling by osteoblasts (a cell that secretes the matrix for bone formation). Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Vitamin D sufficiency prevents rickets in children and osteomalacia (softening of the bones) in adults. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
Obtaining the vitamin D we need from natural sources alone is increasingly difficult. Consuming vitamin D-fortified foods and being exposed to sunlight are essential for maintaining healthy vitamin D levels. For some, supplements might be required to meet the daily need for vitamin D.
Vitamin D, the "sunshine vitamin," is even more important to good health than previously thought. Well known for its positive role in bone health, vitamin D is now receiving praise for supporting healthy immunity.* Emerging research suggests it also helps support breast, cardiovascular, colon, and pancreatic health.*
Non-Oily powdered Dry Vitamin D (from water dispersible natural vitamin D3) is easily digested and assimilated.
Vitamin D is essential for bone maintenance throughout life. Strong bones need vitamin D. Our tablets provide a full day's supply of 100% natural vitamin D-3. Vitamin D nutritionally supports healthy bones and helps maintain the calcium and phosphorus ratio in the blood.*
