Natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is four times more potent than synthetic vitamin D2.

Strong evidence suggests that vitamin D intakes well above current recommendations are beneficial, and when combined with calcium, have a significant impact on overall bone health.

Additionally, vitamin D has been the subject of numerous studies for its effect on the immune system by promoting phagocytosis and immunomodulatory functions.

This formula of vitamin D (D3), provides 5,0000 IUs in the most natural, bioavailable formit‘s the same form that is synthesized by sunlight on the skin. 

Vitamin Ds primary function. Vitamin D offers many benefits, but its main function is to maintain normal levels of calcium in the blood and help the body absorb it for strong bones. Calcium is critical for optimal bone density and for growth, but it needs Vitamin D to utilize the calcium. If calcium intake is low, and vitamin D levels are insufficient, the body will use calcium from existing bone to keep calcium levels in the blood in the normal range. This leads to brittle bones and osteoporosis.  

Vitamin D: not just for bone healthSince it was discovered more than a century agovitamin D has been widely  researched and found to play many important roles in the body. Vitamin D receptors are found on tissues in most organs in the  body – having optimal levels supportthe health of these organs. The heart, colon, prostate, and lungs all benefit from Vitamin D.   

 Optimal levels of Vitamin D can help prevent or improve: 

  • Osteoporosis 
  • Hypertension  
  • Some forms of cancer 
  • Respiratory infections 
  • Auto-immune diseases 
  • Prostate, colon and heart health 
  • Infections/Immune health 

 

  • Vitamin D functions as a hormone. Known as the sunshine vitamin, the skin absorbs energy from the sun and turns into a chemical called cholecalciferol or vitamin D3. It then enters the bloodstream and is carried to the liver and kidneys, where it is transformed into a hormone25-hydroxyvitamin D, or 25(OH)DThis is the measurable form that we can test for with a simple blood test – serum 25(OH)D. Serum levels of 25 (OH)D are high in newborns, however, they decrease as we age. It is important for all ages to maintain optimal levels of vitamin D. 

 

  • Most of the patients I test for 25(OH)D levels are deficient.  Vitamin D levels are typically lower in individuals who live further from the equator, and for those with darker skin. Darker skinned people produce less vitamin D with the same amount of sunlight exposure than individuals with lighter skin color. People are also limiting their exposure to the sun and wearing lots of sunscreen because too much sun is associated with increased risk for skin cancer 

 

  • Another explanation for widespread Vitamin D deficiency is that this vitamin is naturally present in only a few foods: Fatty fish like salmon, herring and sardines, cod liver oil and egg yolks. If you would like to boost your vitamin D from the sun consider getting 15 minutes of sun daily, if possiblewithout sunscreen.  Low mercury fish choices such as sardines and herring are also sources of vitamin D, however, you should consume in moderation to avoid accumulation of heavy metals 

 

  • What is an optimal Vitamin D level?  According to the National Institute for Health sets a lower limit of 30ng/ml 25(OH)D.  However, the research shows that optimal serum levels for 25(OH)D are at least 5– 80ng/ml) 

 

  • Vitamin D supports immune function. Studies show that vitamin D promotes the production of antibodies – which helps to strengthen the immune system. Lower vitamin D levels are also linked to an increased susceptibility to infection and higher levels may protect against auto-immune diseases. 

 

  • Respiratory health. For many years, scientists and medical professionals have noted that respiratory illnesses are highest during the winter months, when the sun is less intenseA recent study suggests that there is an association between vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk of mycobacterial infections, respiratory viral infections and asthma. 

 

  • Promotes positive mood and brain function. Just as vitamin D receptors reside in organs and tissues throughout the body, they also exist in the tissues of the braincontributing to brain development and function. Once study found that high doses of vitamin D over the course of a year improved depression in subjects with low serum 25(OH)D levels.

Therapeutic formulas for best results.

As a Board-Certified Internal Medicine physician, I offer pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements. This means they are typically stronger in potency and higher in quality than supplements you’ll find in most retail or online stores. It also means you can expect to achieve greater results.

Quality ingredients and formulations. Pure and simple.
The ingredients have been tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can trust the identity of each formula. It’s so important to know that what you are putting in your body is the purest form and highest quality. I would want nothing less for myself, my patients, or for you.

The ingredients and formulations in my products are from wholesome, pure, clean sources, and in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness. This means that they are in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body.

It’s not just what’s in the supplement that matters – what’s not in the supplement is just as important. Many of my patients, including myself, have food allergies or sensitivities. None of my supplements contain gluten, dairy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes or toxins.

There are a couple of rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of egg and a few contain tree nuts. All ingredients are clearly indicated on the product pages. Be sure to read carefully if you have any know food allergies or sensitivities.

Highest manufacturing standards.
The supplements in my store are manufactured in facilities that are strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet cGMPs, and routinely pass FDA and third-party audits. Materials go through laboratory testing from raw source to the finished product…to bottling and labeling.

I offer the best of the best, from all over the country.
In order to provide a comprehensive array of supplements I don’t rely on just one manufacturer. I recognize that some have better sources and formulations in specific areas than others, and I only select the best of the best. This means, you don’t have to go researching and searching – I’ve done all the leg work for you.

It’s taken many years of research, trial, implementation, and relationship building to bring what I am offering to you and to my patients. I also stay on top of the latest advancements in formulas, science and industry news to continue to offer the highest quality of innovative supplements. This means you will see changes in offerings to reflect cutting edge solutions.

Evidence-based. Supplements that offer real health solutions.
I personally select every product on my store. Ultimately, it is the science, research and clinical testing that drives my choices and recommendations.

Also, I choose what works. In my years of experience, I have observed the positive outcomes of many of these formulas with patients. In my practice I look for the most natural methods to address health concerns – and often key nutrients and supplements are a huge part of the solution.

I am truly passionate about helping you achieve your best health. I hope you find the nutritional supplements you are looking for and that you are satisfied with your purchase.
