Vitamin D3 Gold 2500 IU

Vitamin D supports heart, prostate, breast, colon, bone, dental, and immune health. It is important to many of the body's functions, but because vitamin D is present in most foods only in very small amounts, it is one of the most common deficiencies in the United States population.

Vitamin D can be synthesized in the skin when it is exposed to sun; however, factors like sunscreen use, cloud or smog cover, time spent indoors, and others may limit the skin's exposure to sun. Many people do not get enough sun exposure to synthesize the amount of vitamin D they need, and when food and sunshine are not enough, supplementing can help reduce risk of deficiency in groups who otherwise may not get enough vitamin D. Groups that are at high risk for developing vitamin D deficiency include:

People who primarily work indoors with limited sun exposure

People with dark skin — because their skin has less ability to produce vitamin D from the sun

Obese people — because their body fat binds to some vitamin D and prevents it from getting into the blood

Older adults — because their skin doesn't make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight as efficiently

People with compromised ability to metabolize fat — because vitamin D needs fat to be absorbed
