  • 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.

    Best Vitamin-D ever.

    In order to enjoy optimal health, we should maintain a vitamin D blood level of 50 99 ng/ml. Without sun exposure, to reach a level of 50 ng/ml requires taking a 5,000 IU/day vitamin D supplement. For those of you who don't really know about vitamins, Thorne Research is one of the best companies to purchase from. They are more expensive, but their products are pure and they use quality ingredients (including the construction of their delivery system capsule). It is a lot to explain, but D-5000 Thorne Research is a great vitamin. Worth every penny. (No, I do not work for Thorne Research You can find other products I use on my Page! I use only products that have Scientifically Proven benefits (or taste good).

    Top quality product.

    I love D-5000 by Thorne Research. I used to use a dropper for vitamin D but I prefer these. The capsules are tiny and I think 5000IU is probably the best dose for me and most people as most people are deficient in vitamin D. Low levels of vitamin D are closely related to incidences of Cancer and insuring you keep your vitamin D (25OH) levels in the optimal range is very important. Ask your doctor to monitor this yearly and inform yourself as to what optimal ranges are rather than the normal range as you know that most people are deficient and who wants to be normal.

    Seems Good

    I ordered this Vitamin D because many other reviews recommended it and I want to supplement my Vitamin D, especially during winter in MInnesota. My impression from the product description is that this is a high quality product and a good value for the price.


    Pros

      I love that the capsules are very small. If you want to take 10,000 IUs you can swallow two at a time.

    Cons

      I would prefer a more food based vitamin.

    Awesome Product

    Pros

      Small size of capsule, higher dosage and and easier to swallow.

    Cons

      None

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
