VITAMIN D3 5,000 I.U. 60 CAPS - Pure Encapsulations
Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium phosphorous absorption, and reduces urinary calcium loss which are essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body, and for healthy bone composition.
Since it promotes the absorption of calcium‚ vitamin D may support healthy bones and teeth. Calcium works with vitamin D‚ a fat-soluble vitamin‚ to help build and maintain bone mass. Bone density may decline as you get older‚ potentially resulting in inconvenient or painful fractures or falls. With the help of vitamin D‚ you may reduce the amount of calcium lost during urination.
Many immune cells--like macrophages and lymphocytes--appear to have vitamin D receptors. This may indicate that this vitamin may boost immunity by activating those cells. Vitamin D may also support cellular functioning in the colon and elsewhere in the body.
In addition‚ vitamin D may also promote heart and cardiovascular health. It works to maintain healthy functioning of plasma renin‚ while having an impact on calcium metabolism. Both women and men can experience more benefits from vitamin D: it can help maintain healthy cell metabolism and angiogenesis balance in order to support the prostate or breasts.
Vitamin D3 is chemically identical to the form of vitamin D your body naturally produces when your skin is exposed to natural sunlight. Unfortunately‚ too much sun exposure can cause its own problems. In addition‚ cold winters or long work hours can decrease the number of daylight hours and keep you indoors.
The good news is that Vitamin D3 10‚000 IU by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient source of this nutrient.
