Description

Vitamin D3 (as Cholescalciferol) 1000IU 90c

Vitamin D3 (as Cholescalciferol) 1000IU 90c High Potency Vitamin for Healthy Bone, Joint, Muscle and Immune Function* Evidence over the past 10 years has shown that vitamin D deficiency is very common, approaching 40% in some populations. Studies suggest that significantly more vitamin D than currently recommended is needed to promote optimal health. The Food and Nutritional Board has established a safe upper limit of 2000 IU/day for vitamin D intake.

A recent review (Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 Jul; 84 (1): 18-28) summarized research that evaluated serum 25 (OH)D concentrations in relation to bone mineral density, lower-extremity function, dental health, and risk of falls, fractures and colorectal health. For all end points, the most advantageous serum concentrations of 25(OH)D began at 75 nmol/L (30ng/ml), and the best levels were between 90 and 100 nmol/L (36-40 ng/ml).

These concentrations could seldom be attained with the currently recommended intakes of 200 and 600 IU vitamin D/day for younger and older adults, respectively. An intake for all adults of at least 1000 IU/day is needed to bring vitamin D concentrations up to 75 nmol/L in at least 50% of the population. The results of this review suggest that significantly more vitamin D is necessary for optimal health.
