Vitamin D is inadequate in most individuals and daily need appears to be higher than previously thought. Vitamin D’s role in calcium metabolism and bone health is well known. However, it has many other important physiologic roles that are not as well appreciated. Vitamin D receptors are widely distributed in the body, including colon, prostate, breast and ovary, where it acts to inhibit the excessive growth of body cells and tissues and helps cells mature normally.

 Vitamin D is responsible for over 1,000 physiological functions in the body.  Adequate amounts of vitamin D, an essential, fat-soluble vitamin, come from consistent exposure to sunshine and are difficult to obtain from dietary sources. Postmenopausal women, older individuals, and those with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. Vitamin D3, the naturally-occurring form, is supplied in high-potency amount of 5,000 I.U. per capsule for those needing to conveniently augment dietary intake. 

I recommend testing before deciding on how much Vitamin D to take.  I find that with my patients who test low, I can bring them up to the optimum levels within 6 months. 

Vitamin D3 and Bone density: Over 25 million adults in the US are at risk of osteoporosis. Increasing levels of Vitamin D 3 may reduce this risk.

Vitamin D deficiency as also been linked to Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, hypertension  and cardiovascular disease
