Carlson Labs Vitamin D-3 10,000 IU, 120 Softgels

Carlson Labs Vitamin D-3 10,000 IU, 120 Softgels helps regulate and control the metabolism of Calcium and Phosphorus by aiding in the absorption of these two minerals from the small intestine, and by directly affecting the rate at which these minerals form and maintain bone.

The diseases caused by Vitamin D deficiency are osteomalacia and rickets. Osteomalacia, found most often found in adults, results in an increase in bone fractures, a waddling walk, and muscle weakness. Rickets is a disease of the bones found in children, and include bowed hands and bowed legs due to the softening of bones. 

Vitamin D, and specifically the hormone our body produces from vitamin D, is the body’s most important regulator of calcium absorption. Research shows that people low in vitamin D absorb a whopping 65% less calcium than those with adequate levels of this vitamin.

Osteoporotic fractures are much more common in people with low levels of vitamin D, and the incidence of fractures are dramatically reduced with vitamin D supplementation.

Vitamin D promotes calcium absorption and calcium transport to bones.  Most people are low in Vitamin D and do not realize it. It is easy to test your D levels with a simple blood test. If you are low in D, it could lead to many health problems such as lower immune function, increased risk of multiple sclerosis, and developing heart disease. 

For women who are looking to become pregnant, it is critical to have your D levels checked.  One recent study showed That there is considerable evidence that low maternal levels of 25 hydroxyvitamin D are associated with adverse outcomes for both mother and fetus in pregnancy as well as the neonate and child. 

Carlson Labs Vitamin D-3 reduces the chance of peripheral arterial disease, a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. 

Studies have shown that a high intake of vitamin D can reduce the risk of various types of cancers. It helps to protect against cancers of the prostate, lung, skin, and lymphoma. 

A growing number of studies point to vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for heart attacks, congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease (PAD), strokes, and the conditions associated with cardiovascular disease, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Ask your doctor to check your vitamin D level. You’ll take a simple blood test called 25- hydroxyvitamin D. Recommended levels are between 40-80 ng/ml.
