Vitamin D3 from Nordic Naturals provides the body with 1000 IU (International Units) of Cholecalciferol, the most absorbable form of Vitamin D. Cholecalciferol is the nutrient we synthesize when we are exposed to the sun. For the past decade or so, it has become alarmingly apparent to healthcare professionals across the nation that the majority of the population are Vitamin D3 deficient, and do not even realize it. It is a physical trend that is beginning to effect humans as young as toddlers and infants.
The daily recommended amount of Vitamin D was doubled in 2008 by the American Academy of Pediatrics for infants, children, and adolescents due to the growing epidemic of Vitamin D deficiencies. Side effects of this deficiency can be devastating on the body. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Rickets threatened many households where children were present. Rickets is a slow growth, or bone deformity of the elongated bones and was often painful. Rickets remained a severe health concern until the United States decided to mandate the fortification of milk with 400 IU / quart in the 1930's, thus reducing the case of Rickets. Other symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency may include fatigue, indigestion, and feelings of depression. In colder climates, many people are subject to Seasonal Affective Disorder and Osteoporosis.
Nordic Naturals' Vitamin D3 is encapsulated in 100% pure, organic, extra virgin olive oil. 1000 IU is the most commonly recommended minimum amount health professionals recommend for those who do not obtain enough of this vital nutrient through the diet, and for those who have limited exposure to the sun.
