Many of us don't get the level of vitamin D3 we need through our diets or exposure to sunlight. In fact, anyone living in a northern climate, working indoors most of the year, or who has darker skin, probably needs a supplemental source of vitamin D3.
Healthy bones and teeth require adequate levels of vitamin D3 in order to utilize and process calcium and phosphorus as it is absorbed in the intestines. For immune health, vitamin D supports healthy immune activity at the cellular level.*
Aside from its benefits for bone and immune health, clinical trials show higher serum levels of vitamin D are associated with healthy mental function. Additional studies, particularly in older adults, have found that increased serum levels of vitamin D are associated with healthy brain function.*
Despite the overwhelming evidence of health benefits, the recommended daily intake of vitamin D3 remains too low. Many experts recommend a much higher supplemental level.
