Vitamin D-3 Bone and Immune Health Sunlight is a source of life on Earth, but we may not be aware of all the ways it benefits us. Our bodies manufacture vitamin D-3 when the skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight, but the ability to do so decreases as we age. Vitamin D-3 maintains healthy calcium and phosphorus levels in the body for strong bones, it supports increased muscle strength in older adults, and it also plays an active role in a healthy immune response. Vitamin D-3 (cholecalciferol) is the optimal form of vitamin D. It is the form of vitamin D that the body manufactures in sunlight, and the form most efficient for the body's needs.*
New research indicates that our modern indoor lifestyles may lead to a widespread increase in vitamin D deficiency. Nicknamed the “sunshine vitamin” because the body makes it naturally when exposed to the sun, scientists are discovering that vitamin D-3 is an important hormone precursor that supports the immune system and helps regulate the health of at least 20 different tissues, including the brain and joints. It also plays an important role in regulating cell growth, insulin levels and bone formation. Researchers are finding that the currentrecommended daily allowances of vitamin D—200 international units for infants, children and adults up to age 50 years; 400 IU for men and women from 50 to 70; and 600 IU for people older than 70—may be far lower than what is necessary for optimum health.
