Delivered in the cleanest dosage form possible: Certified Organic Tablets. No gelatin, no noxious binders. Let us be clear, this vitamin itself is not certified organic, because isolated nutrients cannot be certified under current regulations. But the rest of the tablet is composed of more than 95% certified organic materials, allowing us to deliver the D3 in certified organic tablet form.
Research over the past decade has reinforced the importance of Vitamin D in human nutrition. In the process, new roles in health maintenance related to immunity and chemoprevention have added to the nutrients widely known to benefit skeletal health and tissue integrity. Vitamin D has now been shown to help protect against osteoporosis, whilst also supporting brain and immune function.
The new consensus is that the old RDI of 400 I.U. per day remains inadequate. Rather, ideal intakes of Vitamin D3 now range from 1000 I.U. for infants, up to 2000 I.U. for children and teenagers. For adults, official intake is now recommended at 2000 I.U. It is important to note however that as the body ages, it becomes more difficult to absorb sufficient levels of Vitamin D. Therefore, 4000 to 10, 000 I.U. are suitable for the elderly to maintain immunity and skeletal health.*
Even though we now know more vitamin D is needed, widespread use of sunscreen and consumption of processed foods has placed increasing numbers of the population at risk of Vitamin D deficiency. Indeed many of us on average are found to be clinically deficient. Fortunately, fortified foods and supplements can be used to maintain a desirable level of vitamin D nutrition. Vibrant Health's certified organic tablet provides a delivery vehicle for Vitamin D3 that is free of contaminants, genetically modified substances or other undesirable components.
Vitamin D3 is safely held in circulation and within body tissues until needed. Once needed, the kidneys convert circulating vitamin D into hormonal form (Calcitriol). It is in this form that, along with parathyroid hormone, calcium-retention by our kidneys is stimulated. Calcitriol essentially improves the efficiency of calcium uptake from the intestines, raises circulating calcium levels, and helps drive calcium into bone. As a side benefit, parathyroid hormone secretion is lessened as circulating calcium increases. When this occurs, osteoclasts (cells that breakdown bone strength) are less active.Vitamin D effectively helps us:
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) Organitab daily, or as directed by a health professional. Best taken at meals that contain some fat to maximize absorption.
