Vitamin D is called the "Sunshine Vitamin" because it is produced naturally by the body after exposure to 20 min - 1/2 hour of sunlight. Many people develop deficiencies due to lack of sun exposure, living in cold climates, and other reasons. Vitamin D is most well known for its contribution to joint and bone health by helping the body absorb calcium. It is especially important to maintain adequate Vitamin D levels in children, as we age, and when we are under stress.
Vitamin D-3 is vital for many functions in our bodies. Vitamin D also influences a host of key biological functions vital to health and well-being.

Very economical way to get your D

There is lots of research out now on vitamin D. It is actually a hormone and not a vitamin. It was misclassified as a vitamin when it was first discovered. You have vitamin D receptors all over your body proving it has influence on many biological processes. As time goes on science will learn more of what it does but below are just a few know positives about maintaining a high vitamin D level: It is an important immune system modulator. It is also important in helping calcium get into the bones and teeth. It helps insulin get into the cells slowing or preventing insulin resistance. It has been shown to reduce the risk of colon, breast, bladder, and thyroid cancer. It has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke. It can slow the onset of autoimmune diseases. It can help Most people to supplement. Especially those who can not get enough vitamin D from sun exposure. This is especially true of those living in Colder claimants as the angle of the sun is too shallow to be effective in receiving enough uv-b radiation needed to make D. You should get your Vitamin D levels measured every year at your annual physical with a 25-hydroxy vitamin D test. You may be surprised how low your level is. Most functional medicine doctors and ND's agree that a healthy level should be 50-100 ng/ml. Many lab ranges are 30-80. So be aware of this discrepancy. Many MD's still do not measure it and those that do subscribe to out dated lab ranges. It is best absorbed with your largest meal of the day and taking it with some fat helps in the absorption. This product is in olive oil (a very stable oil) which provide some fat. Beware of other D drops that are in less stable oils like sunflower oil. Oils like this can go rancid much easier. These drops are a very economical way to purchase your vitamin D and I have always been satisfied with Nature's Answers quality.

I have had my vitamin D25 OH level checked regularly for over 3 years due to severe osteoporosis treatment. After I switched to this as my main source of D3, my blood level of D25 OH dropped unexpectedly. I do not trust this product and wish I had not been using it for over half a year. Brands I trust based on testing are Now and Life Extension.

Increased my levels of vitamin D in blood test. I put it on a bit of toast with butter once it is cold and that way it's not bad. The drops worked better than the capsules for me.
Best vitamin D

I have been using Nature's Answers Vitamin D3 supplement for almost 2 years. It is a very good quality product, the recent lab test just confirmed that. Prior to use this particular drops I was always low on Vitamin D3 tests. My family doctor was surprised to see the numbers within the recommended range this year. Vitamin D3 is very important supplement for our well being. As per packaging you have to be patient as the drops are coming very slow at the very beginning. I sometimes have to lean the bottle a bit or tap slightly for the drops start coming out of the bottle. Love this Nature's Answer Vitamin D3 drops.
