    These Vitamin D3 capsules by Pure Encapsulations contain 5‚000 IU of vitamin D3 in each easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule. This provides a high dose of this essential nutrient that so many Americans may struggle with getting enough of.

    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.

    Excellent product

    Vitamin D by Encapsulations was prescribed by my ND to raise a very low D level, which it did in a very short time. It is easily absorbed and caused no unwelcome side effects.


    Pros

      Small capsule, no unhealthy fillers, no side effects.

    Cons

      A little pricy.

    Vitamin D3 5000 IU

    My doctor recommended I start taking Pure Encapsulations Vitamin E3 because my count was low. I have been taking Vitamin D3 for approximately 2 1/2 years. I use the vegetarian capsules because of food allergies. My Vitamin D numbers are great. My doctor recommended that I not take them on the weekends in the summer, because cause the body stores Vitamin D.


    Pros

      Easy to take.

    Cons

      No dislikes.

    Vitamin D3 5000 IU 120 Capsules

    When I had my blood work done my D3 levels were way down. It was suggested I take VIT D3 daily and I have been taking PureFormulas for a couple of years now. My blood work as very much improved I will continue to order them from PURFORMULAS.com because they are a good product and the staff and service are excellent. I take 1 capsule every other day and I am very satisfied. Thank you

    A great product

    I have always had a problem with Vitamin D levels. Due to a prior incident of toxic poisoning I have to be very careful about what I put into my body. I trust this "pure" product.
