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. These factors point to the value of taking a daily vitamin D supplement.
Vitamin D has long provided significant support for healthy bone density. 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. 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 suggests that healthy adults supplement each day with at least 2‚000 IU of vitamin D. Elderly adults may benefit from higher doses. The objective of taking a vitamin D supplement is to achieve an optimal 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood level of 50 ng/mL (or higher).
Natural mint flavor has been added to Life Extension's Liquid Vitamin D3 for improved palatability.
