Prairie Naturals Vitamin D
Prairie Naturals Vitamin D3 1000IU Important for the proper absorption of calcium, Vitamin D is essential for bone strength and offers protection against both osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.
More and more doctors and Naturopaths are recommending that their patients boost their vitamin D supplements. Why? Because good recent research shows deficiencies are widespread, especially in the northern hemisphere where we don't get enough sun exposure for more than half the year!
Although at one time 400IU was considered appropriate for supplementation, many health care practitioners are now recommending 1000-4000IU/day, with doses as high as 10,000IU/day still being considered safe and necessary depending on the condition and assuming you are under the supervision of a healthcare provider.
It is fair to say that we are only just beginning to understand the immense difference that vitamin D can make in terms of everyday health and disease prevention.
Vitamin D plays an integral role in bone health, promoting our absorption of both calcium and phosphorus. For this reason, it is commonly used in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
