Vitamin D3 2000 IU (90 Tablets)
Nourish with Easily-Absorbed Whole Food Vitamin D
True Active™ FoodState® vitamin D-3 is an effective, bioavailable whole food form of vitamin D.
Vitamin D-3 plays a vital role in bone calcium utilization and promotes cardiovascular, immune, and lung health. Deficiency can lead to weak bones and conditions such as rickets, osteoporosis (including the steroid-induced type), and osteomalacia. Many recent studies show it to be a critical agent in reducing auto-immune disease risks, as well as the prevalence of multiple sclerosis (Gropper, 2009). It may slightly reduce several common cancer types, notably of the breast and colon, and has immunity-enhancing properties (Gropper, 2009).
With vitamin D deficiencies at an all-time high following widespread use of sunscreens and increased indoor living, supplementation of this nutrient is of paramount importance. Note that official RDA levels are now 600 IUs daily. Elderly clients need higher doses. Most researchers of vitamin D recommend 1,000 to 2,000 IUs daily (Cannell & Hollis, 2008).
As practitioners in Asia, we know that many of our clients are Vitamin D3 deficient and we are continually learning the far-reaching effects of this deficiency beyond bone strength.
A connection has been made between the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in suicidal patients (Grudet, 2014). A recent study of Swedish patients with (a) a depressed but non-suicidal group and (b) healthy participants, it was found that the Vitamin D3 levels in the suicidal patients were significantly lower than in the 2 control groups. (18.8ng/ml compared with (a) 24.8ng/ml and (b) 26ng/ml). A significant negative relationship was found between vitamin D and IL-1β - an inflammatory cytokine produced by adipose tissue and is responsible for immune regulation, however a significant negative correlation between vitamin D and pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-6 was found in the non-suicidal depressed patients.
The researchers in Sweden concluded; "As inflammation is suggested to directly be part of the neural mechanisms underlying depressive and suicidal behavior, it should be of high relevance to detect and cure the vitamin D deficiency in these patients."
Recently there has been a large Scandinavian study that shows that too low and too high levels of Vitamin D are markers for mortality. Less than 50nmol/L (20ng/ml) was considered too low and about 100nmol/L (40ng/ml) too high and linked to increase cardiovascular death. 70nmol/L (approx 30ng/L) was considered optimal for cardiovascular health (Durup, 2015).
