Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 provides cholecalciferol, the most bioavailable form of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 enhances calcium and phosphorous absorption, stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin (an important structural protein in bone), and supports a healthy immune response.
For adults, take 1 softgel every other day with a meal or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.
Extra virgin olive oil. Softgel consists of gelatin, glycerin and water.
No wheat, no gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts.
100 IU of Vitamin D is equal to 2.5 micrograms of cholecalciferol. Each softgel contains 62.5 mcg of cholecalciferol.
Note: Individuals consuming more than 2,000 IU/day of vitamin D should periodically obtain a serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D measurement. If you have a medical condition (especially kidney stones or dysfunction, hyperparathyroidism, hypercalcemia, lymphoma, or sarcoidosis), are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, under the age of 18, or taking medications, consult your healthcare professional before using this product.
Keep out of the reach of children.

I found this product best for a few reasons. The size of the gel caps are very easy to swallow. My goal was to supplement with 5,000 IU per day. I found that taking two Jarrow 2,500 IU formula was cheaper than most 5,000 IU products in a single cap. I also feel it is better to supplement twice a day to keep consistent (and likely more available) levels of D3 in the body, rather than dosing 5,000 IU all at once.
This is such a necessary vitamin, it would be hard to say anything bad. Vit D3 is used by our bodies to compliment Calcium and Phosphorus absorption, I believe. Beside stifling cancer cell growth it also helps with prevention of SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder, which happens around January for people prone to depression. Stands to reason, since by January most Vit D3 is depleted from the body. I am not a nutritionist butI would surmise that including this in elderly diet regimen would help take the edge off Sundowner Syndrome also, but I have no proof. I do know that professionals are advocating higher dosages based on preliminary studies showing that 400 IU daily is not enough. This brand may be less expensive than others.
This D3 deserves an A+!
