Do you wear sunscreen or live in a cloudy, dark, or polluted place? Do you eat a plant-based diet? Do you get sick frequently, have low moods, muscle weakness, or brain fog? If so, you might be struggling with vitamin D deficiency.
Darker skin and sunscreen reduce vitamin D conversion in the skin. Both lead to a greater reliance on food sources to get enough vitamin D. Fatty fish (like salmon and mackerel) are a good source of vitamin D. If fish is not accessible due to toxicity or food preferences, you may need vitamin D supplementation.†

Did you know that vitamin D is not actually a vitamin but a hormone? Vitamin D is known as a seco-steroid hormone. A hormone is a substance that travels to distant tissues and organs to change the behavior of cells. Hormones do this by binding to the cell's DNA and changing what genes are expressed.†
The effects of vitamin D on gene expression appear to be far-reaching. Vitamin D increases the expression of genes in intestinal cells that allow for more calcium absorption. Thousands of different genes and cells are affected by vitamin D. In particular, immune cell function is significantly altered in the presence of vitamin D. In fact, some researchers are calling vitamin D one of the most important modulators of healthy immune cells in the human body.†
Vitamin D also plays a role in tryptophan metabolism. Adequate cellular vitamin D induces the activity of the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase 2 (TPH2). As shown in the StrateGene® Report, this enzyme facilitates the conversion of tryptophan to 5-HTP, which is a precursor for serotonin and melatonin. This may be one of the many ways that vitamin D helps to support a healthy mood and sleep.†
As a fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin D is best absorbed when combined with dietary fats. Take Vitamin D3 with fat-containing foods for optimal absorption. For a liquid vitamin D3 supplement that can be taken without food, consider our Vitamin D Drops.†

Vitamin D3 is suitable for vegetarians. The vitamin D3 is derived from sheep’s wool, making Vitamin D3 unsuitable for some vegans. This vitamin D3, however, is derived from wool that is sheared from live healthy sheep, so no animals are harmed in the process.
Vitamin D3 is a pure and potent vitamin D3 supplement in a vegetarian capsule. It is intended for anyone seeking to support healthy vitamin D levels. This product is perfect for individuals with low sun exposure, a diet that excludes seafood or dairy products, and those who cannot swallow capsules. Vitamin D3 occurs naturally in fatty fish, cod liver oil, egg yolks, and beef liver. Vitamin D3 contains cholecalciferol derived from cholesterol in sheep’s wool, making it suitable for vegetarians.†
The amount of vitamin D needed by each individual varies for a number of reasons, such as the use of sunscreen, skin tone, and climate. Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient, and dosing can vary, we recommend consulting with your healthcare provider for medical advice to determine your optimal dose.†
Vitamin D is required for optimal absorption of minerals including calcium, making it an important nutrient for supporting healthy bones and structural health. It may also play a role in supporting immune health and cellular integrity.†
