What Is Vitamin D3?

Basking in the sunshine is one of life’s greatest pleasures—and not only does it feel good, it’s good for us in moderation, because sunlight prompts our bodies to manufacture the essential nutrient, vitamin D. But it’s simply not possible for many of us to get enough vitamin D naturally. That’s why you need a potent vitamin D supplement.

Make sure you’re getting enough of the sunshine vitamin with this high-potency, easy-to-swallow vitamin D formula.

Vitamin D3 Benefits

  • A must-have supplement for bone health and immune support
  • Supports your heart, brain and more
  • Potent formula in an easy-to-swallow softgel

Getting Enough of the Sunshine Vitamin

Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because your skin manufactures it when exposed to sunlight, but that shouldn’t be your only source. A vitamin D supplement goes a long way. We recommend about 125 mcg (5,000 IU) to 200 mcg (8,000 IU) of vitamin D3 a day. If your multivitamin already delivers 25-75 mcg (1,000–3,000 IU) of vitamin D, vitamin D3 125 mcg (5,000 IU) is perfect for achieving optimal levels.

Why Should I Supplement With Vitamin D3?

Customer: To me, there's nothing better than being outside on a really nice day. Whether I'm working in my garden or taking a walk with my family, we all love the outdoors. But during my last checkup, the doctor noticed that I wasn't getting enough vitamin D.

Michael A. Smith, MD: From your brain to your heart, your bones to your immune system, vitamin D affects nearly every cell in your body and is critical for optimal health. Even if you spend a lot of time outdoors, your body may not be producing enough of this important vitamin. In fact, studies show that people are really low in vitamin D—and that's why doctors are recommending it to their patients more than ever.

Customer: So, my body needs more vitamin D, but there are all these different doses and options. How can I decide which is best for me?

Michael A. Smith, MD: Like all of our products, Life Extension’s Vitamin D3 is made with the highest quality standards. We recommend taking 5,000 international units a day, but we offer doses ranging from 1,000 to 7,000 units depending on your vitamin D blood level. Be sure to check with your doctor to see which one is right for you. We also offer Vitamins D and K with Sea-Iodine™ for a complete vitamin D formulation.

Customer: Three weeks in, and vitamin D has really made an impact on my whole life. I have more energy and overall, I feel for lack of a better word…sunnier.

Dr. Michael A. Smith, MD: Director of Education and Spokesperson for Life Extension.

Your skin produces vitamin D when in direct sunlight, but you should not get your vitamin D from unprotected sun exposure or indoor tanning devices. Supplementing with vitamin D goes a long way towards inhibiting deficiency: we recommend about 5,000 IU–8,000 IU of vitamin D3 a day. If your multivitamin already delivers 1,000–3,000 IU of vitamin D, Vitamin D3 5,000 IU is perfect for achieving optimal vitamin D levels.
