VITAMIN D3 1000, 5000 IU

Vitamin D3  is a fat-soluble vitamin; it exists in several forms, each with a different level of activity. Cholecalciferol, the source used in this product, is the most active form of vitamin D; other forms are relatively inactive in the body. The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal calcium and phosphorus in the blood by promoting absorption of these two minerals.

A vitamin D deficiency can lead to thin, brittle, or misshapen bones; severe deficiency may lead to a skeletal disease known as rickets. Studies have also provided evidence that vitamin D may help maintain a healthy immune system and help regulate cell growth and differentiation. Recent studies have shown that consumption of at least 1000 IU of vitamin D daily can also reduce the risk of cancer by up to 60%
