Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic

It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body. The current recommended daily vitamin D intake of 400 IUs is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 32-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases.

The amount of vitamin D needed to achieve minimum vitamin D sufficiency (commonly defined as a 32-ng/mL 25(OH)D blood level) depends on many factors and can vary significantly from individual to individual. Thus, the requirement for vitamin D supplementation needs to be individualized. Thorne's D-1,000 supplies 1,000 IU of pure, vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule. This potency is ideal for maintaining optimum vitamin D levels in healthy individuals.

Some vitamins, because of their potency, are usually given in very small amounts. Examples of such "micro-dose" vitamins include vitamin D, vitamin K, and vitamin B12. Most dietary supplement manufacturers purchase "micro-dose" vitamins from raw material suppliers as premixed dilutions, meaning the vitamins (in powder form) are mixed with other powdered substances that in turn make it easier for the manufacturer to handle and mix a larger quantity of raw material. Unfortunately, the powdered substances used in these premixed dilutions frequently contain potentially detrimental ingredients such as lactose and also the preservatives BHT, BHA, sodium benzoate, and sorbic acid.

At Thorne Research, our promise is to give you the purest supplements humanly possible. Therefore, we do not purchase premixed dilutions of any "micro-dose" vitamins. Instead, we purchase pure, undiluted vitamins and create our own dilutions when it is necessary to do so, using pure, hypoallergenic powders, such as magnesium citrate or plant cellulose The resultant premixture is then added to the dietary supplement being made, ensuring the proper amount of each pure nutrient is contained in each capsule.

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Vitamin D review

Posted by Reviewer2336741 on Mar 29, 2010

So far, I'm pleased. Starting taking because my hair is thinning terribly. Vitamin D plus the prenatal vitamins was recommended by a friend. It hasn't been a month, but I'm surprised at how much my hair has grown since I started taking them on March 8th. what I hope is that it thickens my hair. I will defintely order again...soon!

Great Product

Posted by Reviewer1354262 on Jun 20, 2011

This is a really good, simple product that got my vit D levels up quickly without triggering any bad reactions. I react to so many ingredients but Thorne's products are always safe for me. Maree

Like the Absorbability

Posted by Reviewer1331091 on Jul 26, 2011

I am glad to find vitamins and minerals that are easier to absorb than the commercial stuff in the drugstore.
