Vit D 1000iu

90 Tablets


Quick Overview

Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin”, is naturally produced in our skin by exposure to sunlight. However, people living in places like Canada, where sunlight is not strong enough to stimulate the production of Vitamin D during September to May, they are at high risk of developing a Vitamin D deficiency. Therefore, Natural Factors Vitamin D is all they need.

How does Vitamin D work in our body?

Vitamin D is synthesized when sunlight converts cholesterol in your skin into a form of vitamin D3 called calciol. Then the liver hydroxylates calciol into a form called calcidiol (25-hydro-xyvitamin D3). Finally, the kidneys hydroxylate calcidiol into the active form of vitamin D called calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3). Calcitriol, which is also a hormone in our body, acts as a regulator for cellular production of essentials amino acids and enzymes.

Each Tablet Contains:
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)|25mcg (1,000IU)

Adult dosage: 1 tablet daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.

Drug interactions: Many drugs cause vitamin D deficiencies because they interfere with the absorption and/or metabolism of vitamin D, including cholestyramine (Questran), colestipol (Colestid), phenytoin (Dilantin), phenobarbital, orlistat (Xenical), and mineral oil. Also, corticosteroids, such as prednisone, increase the need for vitamin D.

consult a health care practitioner before supplementing with vitamin D. People with liver or kidney disease, primary hyperthyroidism, lymphoma, tuberculosis and granulomatous diseases should consult a health care practitioner before supplementing with vitamin D.
