Most Americans fail to meet the recommended vitamin D intake guidelines.
The lowest vitamin D intakes are reported by people who obtained vitamin D from food only.
Distressingly, insufficient intakes of vitamin D are more pronounced in teenage girls than in boys, in women than in men. These populations may need more bone support.
Fortify your bones to the core. Nature’s Origin Vitamin D supplies D3: the superior form that is naturally produced in the body from sunlight.
"The Surgeon General Wants You to Know…
You can improve your bone health by getting enough calcium, vitamin D, and physical activity."*
*Surgeon General’s Report on Bone Health and Osteoporosis.
Nature’s Origin optimizes absorption and maximizes benefits by bringing you D3, a more potent and active form of the bone-supportive "Sunshine Vitamin."**
How Does Vitamin D Work?
Though it has many roles in the body, vitamin D’s health-enhancing reputation mostly comes from its ability to assist calcium.** As an essential component to calcium absorption, vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones and teeth in adults, including playing a role in proper bone mineralization and bone density.** Vitamin D also supports a healthy immune system.** It may assist the immune system by helping to regulate T and B-lymphocytes, supporting the ability of immune cells called macrophages to work within the body.**
Up to 95% of Adults Could Use more Vitamin D.1 Here’s Why:
Vitamin D may get harder to absorb and synthesize as we grow older.
Lack of sunlight exposure may reduce vitamin D levels in the body.
Use of sunscreen products may reduce your body’s vitamin D production.
Very few foods naturally supply vitamin D2 or vitamin D3.
Nature’s Origin high-potency Vitamin D 5,000 IU can help.

Why Take Nature’s Origin Vitamin D?
Nature’s Origin formulated our Vitamin D to be absorbable.** Our Vitamin D 5,000 IU supplies cholecalciferol, also known as Vitamin D3, which is a more bioavailable form compared to regular D2.** Nature’s Origin Vitamin D is also potent: One rapid-release capsule supplies 5,000 IU of D3 – a whopping 1,250% of the daily value. Nature’s Origin Vitamin D 5,000 IU is perfect for those seeking bone and immune support who may be facing challenges to vitamin D synthesis and absorption.**
Vitamin D has been in the news a lot recently as researchers discover more reasons to make sure you’re getting enough of this valuable nutrient. Here at Puritan’s Pride, we want to be certain that everyone can get enough Vitamin D.
Puritan’s Pride uses only the D3 (cholecalciferol) form of Vitamin D, shown to be more potent and active than other available forms.** All Puritan’s Pride Vitamin D formulas are Vitamin D3-- a more potent and bioavailable form compared to D2.** The benefits of Vitamin D3 run from supporting healthy bones to aiding the immune system.**
D3 assists the body with calcium absorption – if calcium is not absorbed properly, bodily systems in need will take it from the bones.**
D3 supports the immune system**
One of the primary natural sources of Vitamin D is the sun, so supplementation can be essential during winter, in northern climates, and during summer if you use sunscreen
Vitamin D absorption declines with age
Puritan’s Pride Vitamin D3 is free of yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, and dairy, as well as sugar, salt, and starch.
There's nothing better than being outside on a beautiful day. Breathing in the fresh air while basking in the warm sunshine makes you feel good—and it's doing good within your body too. That sunlight is triggering you to produce Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is essential to the body because of its role in calcium absorption.** Not only does it maintain calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood, but it also supports bone density and healthy teeth.** What's more, Vitamin D helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports neuromuscular function.**
The problem is that we often end up spending a lot of time indoors. On cloudy days, or when the weather's cold, we don't get the amount of sun exposure that we'd ideally like. Plus, sunscreen, which is just as important to put on, can inhibit natural Vitamin D production. Fortunately, Vitamin D supplements are an easy option to support bone health.** Puritan's Pride® Vitamin D3 is a more potent and bioavailable form compared to D2. So when you can't soak in the rays, taking these supplements of sunshine will provide added support.**
In the days immediately after hard training, muscle strength can temporarily decrease as your body recovers, which may impact performance. Vitamin D can help improve recovery of muscle strength so you can get back to training hard.**

You've probably heard it since you were a kid: Drink your milk and get your Calcium.
Of all the minerals working to regulate the systems in your body, Calcium is one of the most important. In addition to its primary function of supporting strong bones and teeth—99% of the body’s Calcium is found in the bones and teeth—Calcium is involved with heartbeat regulation, plays a role in proper muscle contraction and promotes nerve function.**
However, your body doesn't produce Calcium naturally, so the keys to maintaining bone health include a balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate intake of Calcium and Vitamin D. ** The National Institute of Health reports that more than 40 million people either already have osteoporosis or are at high risk due to low bone mass. Adequate Calcium consumption throughout life as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Puritan's Pride Absorbable Calcium with Vitamin D3 makes it easy to supplement your Calcium intake. And our Calcium softgels are rapid-releasing meaning the pre-dissolved liquid Calcium is released quickly into your system after ingestion. So your mom was right—Calcium plays a big part in supporting an active, healthy lifestyle.**
