Product Information

Vitamin D softgels provide a more readily absorbable fat soluble vitamin found in some plant and animal sources, but primarily produced by the body after exposure to the sunís ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays promote the skinís production of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol is the most active form, while vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol is synthesized by plants and less available to humans (in fact, studies cited in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, indicate that Vitamin D3 is 87% better in humans, in terms of absorption and bioavailability, than D2).

Vitamin D functions primarily to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. By supporting healthy calcium absorption, vitamin D supports healthy bones. Vitamin D also works synergistically with other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization. Unfortunately with aging, skin cannot synthesize vitamin D from the sun as efficiently.

Vitamin D has more recently been in the spotlight for immune system support. Vitamin D is thought to promote immune health by supporting regulation of cell growth and differentiation -- the process that determines cellís ďjobĒ in the body.

Vitamin D has also shown great promise in maintaining the bodyís innate immune response as well as supporting appropriate autoimmune activity. Both these mechanisms are thought result from vitamin Dís regulation of T cell development..

Warnings

  • Vitamin D may worsen hypercalcemia.
  • Hypercalcemina may contribute to arteriosclerosis, particularly in persons with kidney disease. Such members should use supplemental vitamin D cautiously.
Factoids
  • Vitamin D is one of the oldest hormones, having been produced by life forms for over 750 million years.
  • The skin produces approximately 20,000 IU vitamin D in response 20Ė30 minutes summer sun exposure - 100 times more than the US government's recommendation of 200 IU per day!
  • Technically not a "vitamin," vitamin D is in a class by itself. Its metabolic product, calcitriol, is actually a secosteroid hormone that targets over 1000 genes in the human body.

EZ way to follow doctor's orders! April 9, 2018
Reviewer: Tricia L. from Griffin, Georgia  
My doctor recommended that I take Vitamin D3 and Evening Primrose for the rest of my life.  It's so easy to get the D3 from the Coop at the best price and quality.  The Evening Primrose has unfortunately been discontinued. so I'm hoping enough demand will develop to bring it back.
