Vitamin D3 offers a broad range of health benefits beyond its obvious role in bone health such as helping to reduce bone loss in those with osteoporosis. It may also positively impact heart and arterial health, immune system function, maintenance of healthy glucose levels, and cognitive performance when incorporated as part of the diet. Studies show that deficiency in this vital vitamin may also cause muscle pain in adults and children. Recent research indicates that dosages up to 5,000 IU may provide significant health benefits, and that safe upper limits could be as high as 10,000IU.
This Vitamin D3 5000iu is available in liquid form. Capsules are small and easy to swallow but for thsoe who have difficulties swallowing capsules, the liquid form is an ideal choice.
What is the difference between Vitamin D3 & D2?
Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol, is a naturally occurring form of vitamin D derived from animal source. D3 is produced by the body when your bare skin is exposed to sunlight for periods of time. Vitamin D2 on the other hand is derived from plant source. Both Vitamin D2 & D3 have reported health benefits however, research studies carried out at universities in the USA on how D2 & D3 are absorbed by the body found that vitamin D2 is much less effective than vitamin D3 in humans.
