  • 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 only use Thorne Research Vitamins

    I am in love with D-5000 due to being very sensitive to Gluten Soy and Corn it was hard for me to find vitamins that were safe for me to take. All the Thorne Research Vitamins I have used are the best...no problems with any of them. : )

    Excellent quality Vit-D

    I've used Walmart brand Vitamin D and it does not work like D-5000 by Thorne Research. Great quality vitamin. Highly recommend. My husband has to take 10000 IUs and I take 5000 IUs daily per doctor orders. We notice a big difference when we run out and miss taking them especially in the winter when sunshine exposure is limited.

  • Q Pilar on 1/10/2016

    Hi, since Vit D is fat soluble this should be taken with dietary fat, is that right? or is this some special form that can be taken at any time? thanks
