Vitamin D3 5000 by Jarrow Formulas

100 IU of Vitamin D is equal to 2.5 micrograms of cholecal-ciferol. Each softgel contains 125 mcg of cholecalciferol.

What is Vitamin D3?

Vitamin D3, or Cholecalciferol, is the biologically active form of Vitamin D found naturally in our bodies. Vitamin D3 is converted from cholesterol when sunlight hits our skin, hence its nickname “the sunshine vitamin.” Vitamin D3 behaves less like a traditional vitamin and functions like a steroid hormone. Vitamin D2 is found in non-animal products, fungi and plants, but it is much less potent in its benefits and effects. 

What Are The Benefits Of Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for proper calcium absorption. Without it, the health of your bones and teeth can suffer. Vitamin D also plays a role in regulating the immune system and is said to be important for the prevention of autoimmune diseases. It is also taken as a mood booster to combat depression.

Some studies have shown that taking Vitamin D supplements lowers the risk of specific types of cancer.

How Much Vitamin D Do I Need?

Depending on your Vitamin D levels, you may need to take between 400, and some organizations even recommend up to 5,000 IU daily. A blood test is the best way to tell if you have a Vitamin D deficiency and to understand the proper dosage based on your specific health needs. Your diet, weight, sun exposure, latitude, race and age may all affect your levels of necessary Vitamin D intake per day.
