  • Vitamin D has several major health benefits. One of them is support for strong bones and teeth. This may prevent bone matter from weakening and becoming thinner‚ which may lead to a higher risk of inconvenient and painful falls and breaks. Especially as you get older‚ vitamin D intake can help you protect yourself. It functions by reducing the amount of calcium lost through the urine‚ while also promoting effective absorption of the minerals phosphorous and calcium by the intestines.

    In addition‚ vitamin D may also support your immune system. Many immune cells‚ such as macrophages and lymphocytes‚ have vitamin D receptors‚ meaning that the nutrient may support their activity. In some cases‚ you may also experience benefits in cardiovascular functioning from vitamin D3 because it can help maintain plasma renin function. Finally‚ vitamin D may also support breast and prostate health‚ partially due to its ability to help maintain a healthy angiogenesis balance.

    Natural sunlight is one of the best sources of vitamin D: unprotected exposure allows your skin to manufacture the vitamin itself. However‚ who has time to be chasing the sun‚ when there's long work hours that leave you in the office until sunset and cold climates that have you stuck indoors? A vitamin D3 supplement like Pure Encapsulations' Vitamin D3 5‚000 IU might be a convenient way to ensure that your levels are sufficient. Each capsule provides 5‚000 IU (international units) of vitamin D3.

    Take one capsule daily with food. At the recommended dosage‚ each 250-capsule bottle of Vitamin D3 5‚000 IU by Pure Encapsulations should last for over eight months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Cancer cells and Vitamin D3

    My ND doctor explained to me that when we allow vitamin D3 to fall below the reference levels in our bodies our cells can grow wildly and can turn into cancer tumors. Cancer cells are not recognized as being dangerous by the bodys immune system because it sees the cancer cells as its own legitimate cells. I was below reference levels for a number of years and had problems with my vertigo. I was put on 5000 I.Us a day for six months and still I did not reach the reference levels of D3. It took another seven months at 10000 I.U.s of D3a day to reach the reference levels after two blood panel tests. My vertigo problems disappeared as did my migraine headaches. Check with your MD or ND before taking large doses like I do. It is better to know where you stand with your D3 levels than to do guess work. Also my energy levels are up and staying there better sleep quality. I still take 10000 I. U.s a day because that is what it takes for me to stay within the reference levels. I do a blood panel every six months. Other people may have different requirements of D3 intake . Check with your MD doctor or your ND doctor. Seventy percent of the population in the world has below reference levels of D3 because of air pollution that affects proper sunlight to reach us.

    Pros

      Marvelous results with D3.

    Cons

      None that I have experienced so far after 2 years.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Vit D 3 keeps our immune system strong

    Most people are Vitamin D3 deficient. Everyone in our family takes Vitamin D3. We take 2 a day during seasons when sickness is prevalent. If we get sick we just take 2 a day until were well. We take other supplements also but Vitamin D3 has so many benefits that it is part of our daily routine.

    Pros

      Small capsule use is easy to swallow. Good quality at good price.

    Cons
