Vitamin D3 - 50,000 iu Blister pack of 15
Recent evidence suggests that Vitamin D intake well above current recommendations may be necessary to achieve targeted serum 25 (OH) Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D3 50,000iu is High Potency Supplementation for Aggressive Nutritional Support. It is ideal for patients who have difficulty achieving and maintaining peak vitamin D levels:
- High dose vitamin D3 capsules for patients with persistently low Vitamin D levels who need intensive support
- Elderly patients with low Vitamin D levels
- Those with chronic conditions and malabsorption issues that continually compromise Vitamin D levels
Vitamin D is actually a hormone. Hormones turn on genes in your DNA to make proteins and other building blocks the body needs to survive. Vitamin D3 stimulates cells to make antimicrobial (germ killing) peptides called “cathlecidins”. Cathelicidins kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. The reduction in Sun exposure and consequent lowered vitamin D/cathelicidin levels is one reason for the cold/flu season. High dose vitamin D therapy under medical supervision can be used to treat acute viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Stoss therapy (high dose vitamin D) is used by some physicians to treat viral infections. High dose vitamin D therapy can cause elevated levels of calcium and should only be used under medical supervision.
