From the Manufacturer… 1000IU, 100 Tablets
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin,” is important for strong bones and teeth because it is necessary for the absorption of calcium. In addition, recent findings show that it also plays a major role in healthy cell development and helps keep the immune system strong.
Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin found in fortified milk, oily fish, and in some cereals and manufactured by the body when the body is exposed to sunlight. However, studies show that most individuals do not meet the body’s requirements for this important nutrient. For those who do not consume enough vitamin D or who do not get any sunlight (particularly the elderly in nursing homes) may prefer to take a supplement to promote overall health.
New findings about vitamin D have made headline news recently and the benefits are well supported. Many experts recommend that individuals consume 1000 I.U. of vitamin D everyday to maintain overall health.
