Vitamin D-3 (1000IU) Overview
Within the last decade, Vitamin D has rapidly gone from a relatively obscure and overlooked nutrient to the subject of intensive research and study as scientists continue to identify important new roles for this nutrient. Vitamin D supports the health of the whole body, but is of particular importance to the immune system and bone health.
The trouble is, unless you're out in the sun everyday, your body simply can't make enough vitamin D, and no matter what your diet is, it doesn't supply much vitamin D. So health experts worldwide are stressing the importance of vitamin D supplements for nearly everyone. Internationally, the recommended amounts have been creeping upwards, with the 2000 IU products rapidly overtaking the lower potency 1000 IU and 400 IU products. Note that in NZ 1000IU is the maximum allowed to be sold. As with all NOW products, these small, easy-to-swallow vitamin D softgels are extraordinarily well-made and affordable. Anyone can afford to take vitamin D, which is nice because no one can really afford not to. Don't bother with inferior drugstore and supermarket brands when you're dealing with a nutrient as important and affordable as vitamin D. NOW Foods specializes in supplements, guaranteeing you a top notch product.
Vitamin D-3 (1000IU) Description from Now
NOW new Vitamin D-1000 softgels supply recommended levels of this key vitamin in a highly-absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However, it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply.
