What is Doctor's Best Vitamin D3 5000IU?
Otherwise known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D is produced within the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones, the immune system and may slow down the progression of osteoporosis.
You only need as little as 10 - 15 minutes in the sun each day to supply all the vitamin D the body requires. Unfortunately sunscreen, protective clothing and age may mean that you are not getting enough. This can especially be the case in the winter when we naturally spend more time indoors. Lifestyle can also be a contributing factor as for some people a large amount of core sunlight time (8am to 3pm) is often spent in an indoor environment.
Signs of a deficiency include:
It is not advised to avoid covering up and protecting your skin in the sun as UV rays can be harmful, leading to sunburn and permanent skin damage. Just stepping outside for some fresh air, a small activity or walk could be all you need. Supplementation is a way to maintain good levels of vitamin D in the body to support normal growth and development. It is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle but can give you some confidence that you are keeping your vitamin D stores topped up.

It is also more efficient than Vitamin D2 in being absorbed and used by the body. Doctors Best packs 5000IU of Vitamin D3 sunshine into a convenient daily capsule.
