    About Vitamin D3

    The main role of vitamin D3 is to enhance calcium absorption and retention. This helps support healthy bones and it may also play a part in supporting cellular‚ cardiovascular‚ and colon health. It is known that vitamin D levels in the blood decline with age‚ mostly because of a decreased ability to absorb the vitamin in the body or metabolize it in the liver.

    Another major cause of vitamin D3 deficiency is inadequate sun exposure. Many people avoid the sun for fear of harmful UV rays. Although this is a valid concern‚ it often leaves us deficient in this crucial “sunshine vitamin.” In addition‚ busy schedules or cold climates may cause you to stay indoors. If you make an effort to avoid sun exposure‚ it is recommended that you supplement daily with vitamin D3. You’re at greater risk of a deficiency if you’re a vegetarian‚ vegan‚ or avoid fortified foods like milk‚ cereals‚ breads‚ and juices.

    How the Body Uses Vitamin D3

    Vitamin D helps strengthen the bones by promoting calcium and phosphorous absorption in the intestines and reducing urinary calcium loss‚ which are both essential for maintaining the appropriate calcium levels within the body for healthy bone structure. Using a vitamin D3 supplement has been shown to boost the bone-strengthening abilities of calcium. Even a supplement containing vitamin D alone‚ such as Pure Encapsulations’ Vitamin D3 5‚000 IU Capsules‚ may support bone health.

    Studies have also shown that vitamin D might also offer cardiovascular support for some people. This could be because it helps the body absorb and metabolize calcium‚ or it may be because it helps maintain healthy plasma renin function.

    Another area that vitamin D3 may be helpful in is maintaining cellular health. Current research suggests that vitamin D helps to support colon health by its natural role in promoting healthy cellular function. The vitamin may also provide general cellular support by helping maintain optimal angiogenesis balance‚ supporting the immune cells and maintaining healthy cell metabolism.Finally‚ vitamin D receptors are present on the islet cells of the pancreas‚ indicating its importance.

    Where Does Pure Encapsulations’ Vitamin D Come From?

    Pure Encapsulations derives its vitamin D3 from the cholesterol in lanolin‚ the fat that is found in sheep’s wool. They also use hypo-allergenic plant fiber from pine cellulose‚ making this supplement free of many common allergens. The Vitamin D liquid from medium chain triglycerides are also taken from palm and coconut oil.

    If you think you may be deficient in vitamin D3. Adequate levels are usually considered to be anywhere above 30 ng/ml‚ but some argue that ideal levels are between 50 and 100 ng/ml.

    Each bottle of Vitamin D3 5‚000 IU by Pure Encapsulations provides 120 vegetable capsules. At the recommended dosage of one capsule daily with food‚ each bottle should last for about four months.

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

    Highly Available Vitamin D3 Supplement

    High quality name on a high quality product. Usually go for the 1000-2000 IUs but step it up to 5000IU for the winter. Vitamin D3 by Pure Encapsulations is a great product in my opinion. Also recommended by Dr. Mark Hyman a very credible proponent of functional medicine.


    Pros

      Highly available form of Vitamin D. Great Price & Product Purity.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    The Best of the Best!

    I have been using Pure Encapsulations Vitamin D3 for over two years I have been very pleased with the results. I have tried to use off the shelf products from the local supermarket but they don't compare especially the Vitamin D3. I took Welbutrin for four years and although the feelings of depression seemed to get better other side effects were worsening. Upon the suggestion of my new physician I tried the Pure Encapsulations Vitamin D3. At the time I was working as Pharmaceutical Representative so purity and quality was my major concern. Pure Vitamin D works very well and I have not had any signs of depression since taking it. When I tried off the shelf products from supermarkets I could feel the signs coming back thats when I knew Pure products were every bit Pharmaceutical grade products.


    Pros

      I like the dose availability and the easy no hassle online ordering. I was surprised how fast I received my shipment.

    Cons

    Best Vitamin D there is.

    My naturopath prescribed Vitamin D3 5000 IU by Pure Encapsulations for me years ago when my Vit D levels were under 50. I have been taking 2 a day ever since and my energy level is great now. If you live where there isnt much sun then you must take Vitamin D and have your levels checked often. Your levels should be around 100.

    Great choice for mega-dosing

    I really like Vitamin D3 because of the mega-doses of Vitamin D it offers. Its pure and in a small capsule that is so easy to take. Im not sure if its working yet because I dont have blood work done but Im sure the large doses will help.


    Pros

      High potency pure product

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
