DESCRIPTION

Pure Encapsulations - Vitamin D3 1000 IU - 250 Vegetarian Capsules

Vitamin D3 Supplements to Enhance Mood and Memory Plus Boost Bone and Heart Health
Vitamin D is currently considered a prohormone and not a vitamin. But, either way, supplementing our body with this fat-soluble substance leads to various health benefits. Vitamin D3 is the more bioavailable form of vitamin D and mostly comes from animal products. In comparison to vitamin D2, which is plant-sourced and the cheapest way to create vitamin D. And lastly, Vitamin D3 mimics closely the type of vitamin D that is normally used or synthesized by the body.

  • May enhance mood & boost memory
  • May promote bone health &have heart protective benefits
  • May help maintain good blood sugar levels
  • 1,000-IU of Vitamin D3
  • Hypoallergenic

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is also called the sunshine vitamin because sunlight can stimulate the skin to produce this vitamin. By having at least, a 10-minute exposure of your bare skin at least two to three times a week will provide the average adult its daily needs. However, several factors come into play when it comes to a deficiency in vitamin D because statistics show that a good amount of people are deficient. Some factors that affect vitamin D synthesis are the older people get the lesser vitamin D they produce, the darker skinned people need longer time under the sun, use of UV protective gear and lotion, or simply people don’t get enough sunlight.

May Promote Bone Health
Perhaps, vitamin D3 is best known for its capacity to boost bone health. It has a role to play when it comes to the maintenance of phosphorus levels and the regulation of calcium levels in the blood. These two minerals are important in bone formation and bone resorption. Resorption is basically like the breakdown of bone minerals for use by the body that is why as people age and as more of these minerals are deficient and hence needs to be broken down will lead to various bone problems like weak bones and porous bones.

May Enhance Memory and Mood
Researchers have pinpointed that the brain has vitamin D3 receptors. When these receptors do not have enough vitamin D3, it may malfunction and increase your risk for memory-related malfunctions. In fact, in a recent study, people who had less than 25 of vitamin D in their body showed up to 4 times more cognitive impairment than those who had levels above 75. Further, vitamin D3 is needed in the creation of neurotransmitters which are brain chemicals needed for signaling. And if you are deficient in said vitamin it can affect your mood and disposition.

May Help Boost Immunity
It has been said by scientists that vitamin D has reparative properties because our immune system cells need this vitamin to help fight microbes. Our immunity has various types of defense and commonly the first line of defense is the white blood cells’ phagocytic members that identify the virus, bacteria, and other foreign invaders and then engulf them and kill them inside their embrace to ensure that they do not spread. And these members of the immunity team need vitamin D to work properly.

May Help Control Blood Sugar
Uncontrolled levels of sugar in our blood can cause havoc to various bodily systems especially when it becomes chronically high and unmonitored. Various observational studies have concluded that when vitamin D levels in the blood are high the risk of getting a metabolic disease related to sugar is low. It is believed that insufficient vitamin D levels can negatively affect glucose tolerance and insulin secretion.

Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Vitamin D supports cardiovascular function in some individuals, which may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin function. A role for vitamin D in supporting colon health by promoting healthy cellular function has also been suggested. Furthermore, vitamin D is believed to provide general cellular support potential, including for the breast and prostate, in part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis balance, supporting immune cell activity, and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. Vitamin D's role in immune health has long been established; vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation.

Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, a key nutritional role in supporting healthy bones; new evidence suggests it may also have a prominent role in cellular, cardiovascular, colon and immune health.

What Is Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, a key nutritional role in supporting healthy bones, and may play a potential role in cardiovascular, colon and cellular health. Vitamin D levels have been shown to decline with age, due primarily to a reduction in either absorption or metabolism by the liver. Decreased exposure to sunlight, a vegetarian diet, or a low intake of vitamin D fortified foods
also play a role in inadequate vitamin D levels.

Uses For Vitamin D3:

  • Bone Health: Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Clinical studies involving vitamin D
    supplementation suggest the importance of vitamin D in addition to calcium for bone health. Vitamin D supplementation alone may also support bone health.
  • Cardiovascular Support: Vitamin D may also provide cardiovascular support for some individuals, which may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin function.
  • Cellular Health: Studies suggest vitamin D supports colon health by promoting healthy cellular function. Vitamin D is also believed to provide general cellular support potential, including breast and prostate cells, in part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis balance, supporting immune cell activity and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. Preliminary evidence suggests that vitamin D may also play a role in maintaining healthy glucose metabolism, since vitamin D receptors are present on the islet cells of the pancreas.

What Is The Source?
Vitamin D3 is derived from the cholesterol in lanolin, the fat found in wool. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. Medium chain triglycerides (Vitamin D3 liquid only) are derived from coconut and palm oil.

Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
It is recommended that individuals using more than 2,000 i.u. vitamin D per day have their blood levels monitored. Large doses of vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia, signs include headache, weakness, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Individuals with hyperparathyroidism or kidney disease are at particular risk. Vitamin D3 10,000 i.u., Vitamin D3 5,000 i.u. and vitamin D3 1,000 i.u. are not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking vitamin D3 400 i.u.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Vitamin D may result in hypercalcemia in certain individuals taking digoxin or thiazide diuretics. Consult your physician for more information.
