- Helps Maintain Strong Bones
- A Dietary Supplement
Vitamin D enhances the uptake of calcium from the diet, is necessary for bone and dental health, regulates immune activity and supports healthy cell division. Recent research indicates that Vitamin D also may play an important role in supporting cardiovascular health.
Vitamin D is normally produced in the skin as a result of exposure to uv light from the sun. However, the use of sunscreens, aging, avoidance of sun exposure, and living in the Northern latitudes can significantly reduce vitamin D production by the body. Vitamin D can also be obtained through the diet and some sources include fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products.
The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. By promoting calcium absorption, vitamin D helps to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also works in concert with a number of other vitamins, minerals, and hormones to promote bone mineralization. In addition, Vitamin D plays an important role in immune function, and helps to regulate cell growth and differentiation.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Nice easy measuring stick and the strenght per drop is not that high so taking right doze is easy. Downside is that the bottle runs out faster than other heavier concentrates. Still overall good product and i like they used mct oil instead of some other more sensitive oils.
You can really add it to everything you would like to from 0% fat milk to juices or fish and Royal Jelly. It is just the perfect ingredient for your bones
