Vitamin D3 can be synthesized by humans in the skin upon exposure to ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation from sunlight. But, due to the winter season, weather conditions, and sun screen usage, the body’s ability to produce optimal vitamin D levels may be inhibited.1 These factors point to the value of taking a daily vitamin D supplement.
Vitamin D has long provided significant support for healthy bone density.2-7 However, scientists have also validated the critical role that vitamin D plays in regulating healthy cell division and differentiation, and its profound effects on human immunity.8-15 These findings link a deficiency of vitamin D to a host of common age-related problems.
The current RDA is only 600 IU. As a result of evidence of widespread vitamin D deficiency, prominent nutritional scientists are calling on Americans to increase their vitamin D intake to 1,000 IU per day and higher. Life Extension recommends that healthy adults supplement each day with at least 2,000 IU of vitamin D. Elderly adults may benefit from higher doses such as 5,000 IU daily up to 10,000 IU daily. The objective of taking a vitamin D supplement is to achieve an optimal 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood level of 50 ng/mL (and higher).
Vitamin D in the amount of 2,000 IU is contained in the multinutrient Life Extension Mix™ and the multivitamin Two-Per-Day Tablets. A vitamin D blood test (available online or by calling the Life Extension Blood Lab at 1-800-208-3444), can help you determine the additional amount of vitamin D you may need to supplement to achieve an optimal level.
Some individuals (such as those weighing more than 180 pounds) may require higher potencies of vitamin D. When combined with 1,000-3,000 IU obtained from multinutrient formulas, this 7,000 IU vitamin D3 softgel should enable these individuals to attain 25-hydroxyvitamin D blood levels above the desired range of 50 ng/mL.
Life Extension has upgraded its vitamin D capsules to a small, easy to swallow softgel form that does not include allergen ingredients or vegetable stearate.
