Vitamin D3 delivered in a clean dosage form : Certified Organic Tablets. No gelatin, no noxious binders.

Research over the past decade has reinforced the importance of Vitamin D in human nutrition. In the process, new roles in health maintenance related to immunity have been added to the nutrientâ€™s widely known benefits for skeletal health, and, indirectly, for tissue integrity.* Vitamin D has now been suggested to have a role supporting brain and immune function.*
- Support immune system function*
- Helps promote a healthy skeleton*
- Supports skin and brain*Â
- Support immune function*
Out of the new research has come a reevaluation of ideal maximum daily intakes of Vitamin D.Therefore, some of the most respected researchers (e.g. Heaney, et. al.) suggests that 4,000 to 10,000 i.u. are suitable for older adults in order to maintain immune function and skeletal health.*
Even though we now know more vitamin D is needed, widespread use of sunscreen and consumption of processed foods has placed increasing numbers of the population at risk of vitamin D deficiency. More persons than originally suspected have been found to be clinically deficient. Fortified foods and supplements may be used to maintain a desirable level of vitamin D nutrition in the nation's food supply. Vibrant Healthâ€™s certified organic tablet provides a delivery vehicle for Vitamin D3 that is free of contaminants, genetically modified substances or other undesirable components.
Vitamin D3 is easily and safely held in circulation and in body tissues until it is needed. Then the kidneys convert circulating vitamin D to calcitriol, or 1-25 dihydroxy vitamin D3 as needed. It is this form that, along with parathyroid hormone, stimulates retention of calcium by kidneys. Calcitriol improves the efficiency of calcium uptake from the intestines, raises circulating calcium levels, and helps drive calcium into bone.
