Vitamin D 5000 IU by Douglas Laboratories delivers a powerful boost of the essential nutrient. Vitamin D‚ also known as the “sunshine vitamin” due to the body’s ability to absorb it from natural sunlight‚ is an essential nutrient that participates in a wide variety of critical processes vital to the appropriate functioning of your body. Although classified as a vitamin‚ Vitamin D acts more akin to an important regulatory hormone for the purposes of calcium and bone metabolism; sufficient levels of vitamin D are needed to ensure normal calcium absorption and the maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels.
As revealed by extensive clinical trials‚ the potentially detrimental effects of a vitamin D deficiency are far more diverse than poor bone development and the significant falls and breaks that may be caused by the weakening of current bone. Virtually all bodily tissues have uses for the nutrient: the brain‚ muscles‚ heart‚ and immune system all have vitamin D receptors; this points to the fact that they require it to function.
Other conditions that may be caused by vitamin D deficiency are:
