Product Overview:

Vitamin D has emerged as the “star supplement” because of its many nutritional benefits for both men and women. Maintaining healthy levels of vitamin D in your body has been shown to be an important part of your overall health. Nature Made® Extra Strength Vitamin D3 is cholecalciferol, the form of vitamin D that your body prefers.**,2

  • Supports bone, teeth, muscle and immune health.
  • #1 Pharmacist Recommended Vitamin and Supplement Brand.*
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that has emerged as a popular nutrient over the past decade. Discovered in the early 1900s as an anti-rickets compound and consequently added to several food sources (e.g. dairy) through mandatory U.S. fortification programs in the 1930s, vitamin D has long been considered a key vitamin essential for overall health.3 Vitamin D is also produced within the cell when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis.4 The skin synthesis is reduced by clothing, sunscreen, air pollution, older age, darker skin pigmentation, being indoors, winter season, and higher latitude.

Bone health support: Vitamin D helps build and support strong bones by enhancing calcium absorption, regulating calcium and phosphorus concentrations in the body, and regulating the bone cells involved in bone remodeling.5-6,†

Muscle health support: Vitamin D is important for muscle health because it supports muscle function, muscle strength, and balance.7,†

Immune health support: Receptors for vitamin D are found in most immune cells. Research suggests that vitamin D may improve natural immune function and inhibit the immune system from attacking healthy cells.8,†

Too many Americans are not getting enough of this important nutrient. The 2015 USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans Committee identified vitamin D as a “nutrient of public health concern,” as 9 out of 10 Americans fail to meet their daily vitamin D needs.9 Many Americans don't meet the minimum requirement of sun exposure of 5 to 30 minutes a day/two times a week. Vitamin D deficiency is even more pronounced among people living in northern parts of the country, such as Seattle and New England, especially in the winter due to limited access to sunlight.

Although rare, vitamin D deficient rickets still occurs as well as an alarming prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in certain segments of the US population, including those with darker skin pigmentation, the elderly, obese individuals, and those living in geographical areas with limited sunlight.10

Very few foods are natural sources of vitamin D. Fatty fish (mackerel, salmon, sardines) and fish liver oil are among the best sources of vitamin D.11

Vitamin D may also be consumed through fortified foods. Vitamin D fortification of certain dairy products and cereals began in the early 20th century to help eradicate disease such as rickets. Consequently, some cow milks, cow milk substitutes, infant formula, orange juices, breads and cereals may add vitamin D added to support adequate intake of vitamin D.

**Vitamin D3 is more effective than vitamin D2 at raising and maintaining adequate levels of vitamin D in the body.†
