Table of contents
Vitamin D-3 2000IU by Now Foods is a dietary supplement in pearls, based on cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3), with extra virgin olive oil.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient, as our body is not able to produce it in sufficient quantities to cover the daily requirements. Dietary sources of vitamin D3 are very scarce, and mostly based on fatty fish.
Vitamin D-3 2000IU is high potency vitamin D3 of animal origin (lanolin).
Because between one third and a half of the European population suffers from vitamin D deficiency in the body, due to the nutritionally essential nature of the vitamin and the low consumption of its dietary sources in the Western population (Edwards et al., 2014).
Vitamin D is especially known for its functions on the maintenance of bone metabolism:
Vitamin D contributes to:
- The maintenance of normal calcium levels in blood.
- The absorption and normal use of calcium and phosphorus.
- The normal maintenance of bones and teeth.
In addition to other functions not related to the maintenance of muscle function or the immune system.
The vitamin D comes in two forms:
- Vitamin D2, and ergocalciferol.
- Vitamin D3, and colecalciferol.
While both are valid and produce the same effects in the body, because of its high efficiency vitamin D3 has been proposed as a superior option by experts around the world, and is currently the most widespread form of vitamin D dietary supplementation worldwide.
Each Now Foods pearl contains 2000 International Units (IU) of vitamin D3.
A high dose equivalent to 1000% of the Nutrient Reference Values, ideal for restoring your vitamin D status, especially in the winter months and periods of reduced sun exposure.
This vitamin D3 is not synthetic, it comes from lanolin, a fatty secretion from sheep, with which they enrich the wool they produce, and which is naturally rich in vitamin D3.
Oil has been used in the pearls because we're dealing with a fat-soluble vitamin, but not just any oil.
The pearls contain Extra Virgin Olive Oil, of the highest quality, so you can take care of yourself more than ever!
Take one softgel, once a day with a meal.
