Vitamin D3 offers year-round support for optimal health 

  • Supports bone health and physical mobility
  • Aids in calcium absorption
  • Helps the body process sugar
  • Supports healthy metabolism
 

Our bodies require sunshine to make Vitamin D. And it’s almost impossible to get enough vitamin D from the foods you eat. In fact, over one-third of Americans are now deficient in vitamin D. That’s why supplementation is crucial, particularly during winter months, when it’s a challenge to get enough sunlight for our bodies to manufacture the vitamin D we need.

Formulated with the most absorbable form of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is best known for its bone-building benefits, but growing research confirms it fortifies your immune system, helps maintain muscle strength, elevates mood, and enhances cardiovascular health. And Healthy Directions’ Vitamin D3 supplement delivers a full 5,000 IU of the most potent, natural, and absorbable form of it. In fact, vitamin D3 is the same form of vitamin D used by the cells and tissues in your body. And, it’s up to three times better absorbed than the more common D2 form, so you’ll get the greatest health benefits.

More than just bone health!

Plus, vitamin D supports cellular integrity, improves muscle function and agility, enhances heart health, and even helps your body process sugar properly. More research supporting vitamin D’s health benefits emerges every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamin D3 Three years ago I had a blood test that indicated my vitamin D levels were extremely low. I immediately ordered and started taking 5,000 mg of vitamin D softgels to help [promote healthy bones]. I have had no harmful side effects and my blood tests now indicate I am receiving an adequate amount of Vitamin D so necessary for my bones and building my immune system. I am so glad the newer bottles have more added Vitamin D so I only have to take one gel capsule instead of two a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamin D3 I am a 77 year old man that is in pretty good health. The only medication that I take is one thyroid tablet daily. I feel good and am energized most of the time and I attribute this to taking Vitamin D3 and other vitamins. I rarely have a cold or get the flu or for that matter any other sickness. I attribute this to the vitamins that I take and God's blessing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nutritional Supplements/Vite D I am an 80 yr old female who has longstanding issues with thespine. My goal was to get off the drugs for pain and use nutrition and supplements to be healthier. I am not jumping hurdles nor running races but I have been able to cut way back on the drugs. That is good enough for me. B

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamin D3 I am 'looking forward' to trying this supplement (when my current supply runs out) but will not know until I take a lab test, likely months from now, about the effectiveness of the vitamin. I trust in the quality of the supplements offered by Dr Williams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from D3 D3 was highly recommended due to the amount of time spent indoors. The gel pill is small and very easy to swallow and no side affects.

Science and Quality

Bone Health

  • Research shows that bone density is increased when Vitamin D supplements are taken in conjunction with calcium.1

Physical Ability

  • Analysis of a previously conducted randomized clinical trial on 124 nursing home residents receiving Vitamin D supplementation found that those receiving 800 IU per day for 5 months had better physical health.2
  • A literature review found that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with muscle weakness and lower grip strength.3

Metabolism

  • A clinical intervention found that adequate Vitamin D status may enhance the thermic effect of a meal and fat oxidation.4

Immune Health

  • Research has shown that individuals with higher levels of vitamin D are less likely to have symptoms of poor immune health.5
