Vitamin D is necessary for the metabolism, absorption and storage of calcium and phosphorus. It is also a hormone, giving it the ability to support the immune system, bone and teeth strength, nerve function, mood and cardiovascular health.
The percentage of people who are Vitamin D deficient in the United States is very high - with some statistics as high as 80%. Deficiencies can be the result of inadequate sun exposure, dark skin or poor diet. The symptoms can sometimes be barely noticeable, usually tiredness, apathy, general aches and pains, but the long-term effects can be serious.
This Vitamin D supplement is in the form of cholecalciferol (D3), the kind found naturally in food - this is important to maximize absorption. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapples, is added to this supplement to further support joint and bone health by reducing swelling. Each jar contains 60 vegetarian capsules.
Remember - Vitamin D is fat-soluble, so take this after eating or with your Fish Oils.
