Vitamin D is a precursor hormone — the building block of a powerful steroid hormone in your body called calcitriol. As a hormone, calcitriol controls phosphorus, calcium, and bone metabolism and neuromuscular function in the body. For centuries Vitamin D was considered to be only essential to maintaining bone health, but recently more and more studies are linking Vitamin D to overall body wellness.
These days supplementation has become very important as the average person is unable to absorb their daily dose of vitamin through 15-20 minutes unprotected sun exposure.
The average healthy body can naturally synthesize about 10,000–15,000 IU of vitamin D3 in the skin within minutes of sun exposure, without ill effect. Sunscreen lotions above SPF 15 and glass windows block the essential UVB rays the body needs to synthesize this crucial vitamin. In these circumstances, taking a Vitamin D supplement every day is essential to maintaining good health and protecting the body from various potential illnesses.
Good Health Naturally's Vitamin D3 delivers a significant dose of 5,000 IU's (international units) of Vitamin D3 as well as a 100 mg of calcium from coral per capsule. The inclusion of coral not only provides 10% RDA for calcium, but also doubles as the flowing agent so no artificial fillers, flowing agents, or excipents are used. Vitamin D3 is delivered in a very small number 4 vegetable capsule and is very easy to swallow.
