Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption and may reduce urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Research indicates that it may also promote cellular health, including support for breast and prostate tissue, in part by helping to maintain healthy blood vessel function, supporting immune cell activity, and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. A role for vitamin D in supporting colon health by promoting healthy cellular function has also been suggested. Vitamin D's role in immune health has long been established; vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation. Vitamin D also supports cardiovascular function in some individuals.*

One important note:
Another reviewer suggested to take vitamin K to increase the absorption of this, which I did. CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION! Vitamin K is a blood coagulant and can cause blood clots. I developed a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) blood clot in my calf and got a life threatening pulmonary embolism. I obviously survived but it was scary. Pure Encapsulations Vitamin D is a potent and effective supplement and doesn't need Vitamin K to help with absorption. My suggestion is to take it as is and get your blood levels checked regularly. Good Luck!
I told the Dr. I was suspicious she had an absorb toon problem & I would like to try another brand before we do such a drastic jump. I consulted my Lyme disease Dr. She said try Pure Vesisorb Vitamin D3. We did. One month later my daughters Vitamin D3 level more than doubled!! Plus, I gave her 2,000 IU's when she was taking up to 5,000 IU's of other brands with no improvement. We will never take anything else.
UPDATE 6/25/2014: Any supplementation without lab tests may be risky. If you take too much, your body could get out of balance with other vitamins and minerals. This is why it is so important to get your nutrients from nutrient-dense foods. For this reason I now use Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil-Cinnamon Tingle, available on Amazon. Because it is not processed like standard "fish oil" it will not state exact quantities of Vitamins A & D, but you get them together in a whole fermented food. I take the recommended 1/2 tsp per day. Some people report the taste disgusting, but I don't see a problem. On the rare occasion that I notice a bit of fishy taste after the cinnamon, it is no big deal. I like fish and I expect it to taste like fish, which surprisingly most of the time it does not. So, although this is a good product and I don't see a problem if this is used as directed, but do yourself a favor and get your blood tested 3-4 times a year to make sure your blood is in balance. My recommendation is to try the fermented cod liver oil (CLO) from Green Pastures. And while you are ordering, get yourself a copy of "Practical Paleo" by Diane Sanfilippo. Or visit her website (balancedbites.com) and read up on her blog about the fermented CLO! [...]
