Product Description

Size: 240

NOW® Vitamin D softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form.  Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun.  However, it is not abundant in food.  As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.

They're small and easy to take and I already feel a difference in my moods and energy levels.

I was having lots of pain and muscle aches. Also, I was feeling had been tired all the time, I mean it was just sluggish and not my normal self- even my complexion started to look bad. I went to my physician and he told me that I lacked vitamin D. He recommended Now Foods Vitamin D3. After just a few weeks of taking it, I felt soooo much healthier and better, not only more vibrant and energetic, but my skin also looked better. In addition, I began using Skingenixx Moisturizer Skingenixx Hyaluronic Acid Facial Moisturizer. on my face and neck, and it made my skin much more vibrant, soft, smooth and radiant. It definitely made my complexion look much more bright and my skin tone more even. Take this vitamin D and you will feel and look healthier, it worked for me.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading Vitamin D3 supplements: Nutrigold Vitamin D3 Gold, Doctor's Best Vitamin D3 5000iu (360 Count), Now Foods Vitamin D3, Life Extension Vitamin D3, Nature Made Vitamin D3 5000 I.U., Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3, Thorne Research D-5,000, Schiff Mega D3, Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3, and Doctor's Best Vitamin D3 5000iu (180 Count).

The major biologic function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones. It is used, alone or in combination with calcium, to increase bone mineral density and decrease fractures. Recently, research also suggests that vitamin D may provide protection from osteoporosis, hypertension (high blood pressure), cancer, and several autoimmune diseases.

Sun exposure is an easy, reliable way for most people to get vitamin D. Exposure of the hands, face, arms, and legs to sunlight two to three times a week for about one-fourth of the time it would take to develop a mild sunburn will cause the skin to produce enough vitamin D. The necessary exposure time varies with age, skin type, season, time of day, etc.

People who don't get enough sun, especially people living in Canada and the northern half of the US, are especially at risk. Vitamin D deficiency also occurs even in sunny climates, possibly because people are staying indoors more, covering up when outside, or using sunscreens consistently these days to reduce skin cancer risk.

Older people are also at risk for vitamin D deficiency.

I am a dentist and began taking D-3 after testing deficient. I soon noticed that my gums stopped bleeding when flossing and so I now provide a Calcium/D-3 combination to my patients; then I noticed my high blood pressure dropped and I actually passed out from low blood pressure! I was taking two blood pressure medications and have cut back to one. I dropped 10 pounds in two months and have now dropped another 5 pounds. Every time I notice a beneficial change in my body, I go online and find that, yes, D-3 can cause that. My wife's leg pains are caused by D-3 deficiency according to her cardiologist. It is recognized as a prevention measure for several cancers. I took 10,000 each day until my level hit 70, then cut back to 5,000. I could also say that my mental health has improved tremendously. All of the good things you associate with being out in the sun happen when you take D-3.

Size Name: 120 Softgels
I am so glad to find this strength available on Amazon so affordable. These little tiny perles are so easy to take it's a pleasure. My doctor told me that for high immunity he would recommend maintaining a blood level of 75-80 ng/mL. After a month on 5000 a day (one perle) he checked my level and it was only 35. He's having me take 2 a day, 10,000 units, for 3 months and will check again. The correct test is called "25 Hydroxyvitamin D".

There's a lot of interesting information on this topic at[...], and they sell a home test.

When visiting my doctor and describing my symptoms of lacking energy, lack of joy, some depression and several other factors, he said that I should consider taking 5,000mg of Vitamin D3 per day. I found it interesting that he said that many of the doctors in his building are taking it since finding that after about 2 months their energy and mood levels are significantly improved. Since I am always interested in what Doctors take themselves, I decided to study why this was true, so when at Bar and Nob, I found the Vitamin D Cure by James E Dowd, MD. ($14.95 or on line e-book for free [if you know where to look])and was very impressed. Nearly all my symptoms were noted in the V D3 deficiency list. As a matter of fact, both my teens and my wife have symptoms of V D3 deficiency as well! When telling my wife about my exciting "find", she said that her doctor had prescribed it for her two months earlier (5,000mg/day.) Needless to say, NOW Brand of Vitamin D3 is the best value that I was able to find! It is pretty inexpensive for an 8 month supply (under $15 including shipping.) I would highly recommend reading the Vitamin D Cure and NOW Brand Vitamin D3 gel caps. Some Vitamin D deficiency symptoms from pg 10: fatigue, joint pain/or swelling, muscle pain pain, cramping, and/or weakness (leg cramps?), chronic pain, uncontrolled weight gain, high BP, restless sleep, poor concentration and memory, headaches, bowel and bladder problems. Unless you work outside most of the time, you are probably very deficient in Vitamin D...that is most of us!...the book says! Be well! NOW Foods Vitamin D3 5000 Iu, 240-Softgels,
