Vitamin D3
100/240 Softgels • 125 mcg (5,000 IU)
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble compound found in cod liver oil and vitamin D fortified foods. Traces of vitamin D are found in egg yolks and butter. However, the majority of vitamin D in the body is created during a chemical reaction that starts with sunlight exposure to the skin.

The main role of vitamin D is to maintain blood levels of calcium, which it accomplishes by increasing absorption of calcium from food and reducing urinary calcium loss. Both effects keep calcium in the organism and therefore spare the calcium that is stored in bones. When necessary, vitamin D transfers calcium from bones into the bloodstream, which does not benefit bones. Although the overall effect of vitamin D on bones is complex, some vitamin D is necessary for healthy bones and teeth.

Vitamin D plays a role in immunity and blood cell formation and also helps
cells “differentiate”, a process that may reduce the risk of cell degeneration.
From animal and human studies, researchers have hypothesized that vitamin D may protect people from a number of autoimmune deficiencies.

Vitamin D is also needed for adequate blood levels of insulin. Vitamin D receptors have been found in the pancreas where insulin is made, and preliminary evidence suggests that supplementation may increase insulin secretion for some people with blood glucose control.
