Healthy Origins Vitamin D3
Healthy Origins® Vitamin D3 2,000 IU is a key nutrient manufactured in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D3 is synthesized in the body from sunlight and only a small amount can be obtained from food. The winter season and many sunblock products inhibit the body’s ability to produce optimal levels of Vitamin D. As a result, Vitamin D3 supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure your body receives an adequate supply.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary to help support the growth, development, and maintenance of bones and teeth in adults and children. Vitamin D3 is also required for calcium and phosphorus absorption and utilization. In its active form, Vitamin D3 works with calcium to help control bone formation.
Vitamin D deficiency is one of the more common medical conditions throughout the world. The primary reason for a Vitamin D deficiency is lack of sunlight, however other factors such as age, weight, and skin tone can also play a major role in whether or not you are at an increased risk for Vitamin D deficiency. Prolonged deficiency of Vitamin D may lead to a greater risk of health complications.
