  • D-5000™ is a vitamin D supplement for those who are looking for higher amounts of vitamin D‚ such as those who have tested deficient. This vitamin D supplement by Thorne Research differs from others on the market in that it is completely free from other ingredients. Competing brands may include hidden ingredients like BHA‚ BHT‚ sodium benzoate‚ sorbic acid and lactose. Thorne’s D-5000 capsules are pure vitamin D3.

    The Importance of Vitamin D

    Vitamin D is essential for maintaining health throughout every life stage – from birth to old age. This is because it protects many important body functions. It is important for anyone considering vitamin D supplementation to understand that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) set by the US government is based on the smallest amount of vitamin D one must take in order to prevent bone disease. Much research has been done recently on the effects of low levels of vitamin D and it has since been linked to many other (non-bone related) diseases‚ disorders and conditions. Because of this‚ the FDA is considering an upward revision of the recommended intake.

    Because low levels of vitamin D have been linked to improper immune function‚ current research suggests that everyone maintain a serum level between 32-80 ng/ml of 25-hydroxyvitamin D. It is extremely difficult to maintain such levels without supplementation. The best natural source of vitamin D is sunlight exposure‚ which many people do not get. Those who do spend time in the sun often use sunblock to avoid harmful UV rays‚ but this also inhibits vitamin D absorption. Because of the dangers of excessive sun exposure‚ vitamin D supplements may be the safest way to obtain proper levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the blood.

    Deficiency

    It is quite common for people to be diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency‚ especially those who have reached their senior years. One study of seniors in Scotland found that the majority of patients among a group of 548 were deficient in vitamin D. Those who have found a deficiency upon testing may need 5‚000 to 10‚000 IU of the vitamin to get their levels back to adequate. Thorne Research designed this vitamin D capsule to help those individuals.

    The Thorne Difference

    Many manufacturers purchase their vitamin D3 from suppliers as a premixed dilution‚ which means the vitamin powder is diluted. This makes it easier to handle and mix. The downside is that these powders usually contain harmful ingredients such as lactose and preservatives such as BHA‚ BHT‚ sorbic acid and sodium benzoate.Thorne Research never uses premixed dilutions in the making of its vitamin D3. Instead‚ they use pure‚ undiluted powders and diluting is done in their facility to control quality.

    I dont go without it !

    This is a perfect D vitamin product in my opinion. And the amount which is 5000 IU is suiting for people who live in northern part of the world. I live in NW. And I dont get enough sun. So this is MUST for me. And since I started taking it its helping me not only to have D vitamins but its helping my bones strong and skin condition under controlled.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best vitamin D3

    Unlike most companies Thorne does not use toxic solvents to extract vitamin D from sheep lanolin. This is the best vitamin D I have found.

    Pros

      No solvents no magnesium stearate

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
