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.

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.

2 drops a day make a tremendous difference. You can feel the effects of renewed energy and of consistent good health. Now that recommendation is coming from a married couple that eats only the best, natural, whole, and organic foods. Highly recommended!

I have been using it for a few year in and off., I'm not sure it would ever be as effective as real sunshine.... My blood test results were much higher after 30 min of midday sun, than this product which gave marginal results. Most definitely excellent for winter months... Better than no supplement at all. But not a substitute for real sunshine.
