Vitamin D3 5000 IU

Vitamin D3 is the active & preferable form of vitamin D. It is a fat soluble vitamin & its absorption depends upon the presence of bile & fats in the intestines. (If your gallbladder has been removed you will have no bile & may need to take one of our digestive aids containing ox bile).*

High dietary sources of vitamin D are liver, fish, egg yolk, & dairy products. Availability is decreased with liver disease, cortisol, high pH in the gut (as with decreased stomach acidity) & low bile salts in the gut, cholesterol lowering drugs may interfere with vitamin D absorption & utilization.*

Vitamin D3 functions more like a hormone than a vitamin because of the many cellular functions it affects. Many investigators already regard vitamin D as a hormone because of its sterol chemical structure & the fact that sunlight on your skin can use your body to make vitamin D.*

Vitamin D:

  • Helps maintain a healthy skeleton.*
  • Maintains calcium & phosphorus homeostasis through hormonal-like actions.*
  • Regulates cell differentiation & cell proliferation.*
  • Protects against the build-up of calcium in other soft tissues. Low vitamin D levels increase the likelihood of calcium build-up in fatty plaques in the arteries. The higher the level of vitamin D the less likely it is that calcium will build up in the blood vessels.*
  • Helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels.*


  • Burning mouth & throat*
  • Nervousness*
  • Ocassional sleeplessness*
  • Bone loss*
  • Otosclerosis & hearing loss*
  • Excessive soft tissue calcification function*
  • Diarrhea*
  • Near sightedness*
  • Osteomalacia*
  • Rickets*
  • Depressed immune*
  • Decreased immune function*
  • Parathyroid disease*

Vitamin D can store in your body and be toxic so do not over supplement. Dosage range can be total of 400-2000 units daily. Do not take more without your physician's advice.

Excessive vitamin D will increase the calcium in your blood & be toxic to your kidneys.*
