Potent whole-body health nutrient

Your skin produces vitamin D when in direct sunlight or indoor tanning devices, but that’s not an ideal solution for obvious reasons. Choose a potent vitamin D3 supplement from Life Extension instead.

Overview

Supplementing with vitamin D goes a long way. Vitamin D helps preserve youthful cognitive function, supports bone and immune system health, helps maintain already-healthy blood pressure, encourages a healthy inflammatory response and promotes endothelial function. We recommend between about 5,000 IU to 8,000 IU of vitamin D3 a day.

Make sure you’re getting enough of vitamin D3, the sunshine vitamin. Add Vitamin D3 to your supplement regimen today.

Vitamin D3 Benefits

  • Helps maintain youthful, healthy cognitive function
  • Supports bone health & immune system function
  • Promotes cardiovascular & endothelial health
  • Helps maintain blood pressure already within the normal range

Getting Enough of the Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because your skin manufactures it when exposed to sunlight, but that shouldn’t be your only source. A vitamin D supplement goes a long way. We recommend about 125 mcg (5,000 IU) to 200 mcg (8,000 IU) of vitamin D3 a day. If your multivitamin already delivers 1,000–3,000 IU of vitamin D, vitamin D3 5,000 IU is perfect for achieving optimal levels.

Product Details

Maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D helps preserve youthful cognitive function and offers broad-spectrum benefits for bone, immune system health and more. Here's why you should be making sure you get enough of this essential vitamin every day:

Cognitive health

Vitamin D is important for maintaining cognitive health and function as you age. Healthy serum vitamin D levels have been shown to correspond with better scores on cognitive health tests and better maintenance of cognitive ability in aging individuals.1-4

Bone and immune health

Vitamin D (along with vitamin K and essential minerals) is essential for facilitating the transport of calcium into the bone matrix.5 This is an important step in maintaining strong, healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also plays a critical role in healthy immune function.5,6

Heart health & blood pressure support

Vitamin D helps to regulate the body's calcium balance while facilitating calcium absorption into the bloodstream, promotes a healthy inflammatory response in the cardiovascular system and encourages healthy endothelial function.7,8 Vitamin D may also help inhibit excess renin levels. Healthy renin levels help maintain healthy blood pressure already within the normal range.9

Getting enough vitamin D

This vitamin D3 supplement delivers 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 as cholecalciferol per softgel. We suggest that you take a 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test after 3 months to assess and adjust your dosage. Your optimal blood levels should be 50–80 ng/ml year-round.
