Vitamin D is commonly associated with being the “sunshine vitamin”
since it is produced by the body once exposed to the sun’s rays.
It’s a vital nutrient that unfortunately we don’t get enough of when the colder weather comes around, and sunlight is more scarce. To ensure your levels are always optimal, Piping Rock’s High Potency Vitamin D3 provides a convenient way to intake this substance daily. Supplying you with 5000 IU per quick-release softgel, you can rest assured, sun or not, you’re covered.
Vitamin D (ergocalciferol-D2, cholecalciferol-D3, alfacalcidol) is a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus is important for building and keeping strong bones. Vitamin D is used to prevent bone disorders (such as rickets, osteomalacia). Vitamin D is made by the body when skin is exposed to sunlight. Sunscreen, protective clothing, limited exposure to sunlight, dark skin, and age may prevent getting enough vitamin D from the sun.
Vitamin D with calcium is used to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). Vitamin D is also used with other medications to treat low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders (such as hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, familial hypophosphatemia). It may be used in kidney disease to keep calcium levels normal and allow normal bone growth. Vitamin D drops (or other supplements) are given to breast-fed infants because breast milk usually has low levels of vitamin D.
