Vitamin D3 5000 IU - 90 Capsules
The exact Vitamin D supplement we recommend to our patients in the clinic.
5000 IU of Vitamin D3 per small capsule!
Fun Fact: Vitamin D is actually a hormone not a vitamin!
It helps the body with my favorite 3 things as a chiropractor: inflammation, musculoskeletal health, and immune system balance!
1. Immune System Health (especially upper respiratory tract!)
2. Bone Health (calcium balance in the blood)
3. Inflammation (helps modulate PGE2 levels, which is a key driver of inflammation. As a chiropractor I’m trying to help patients balance out their inflammation)
More and more Primary Care docs are testing vitamin D levels on yearly physicals because the extensive scientific papers being published on vitamin D and health.
I recommend levels of Vitamin D at 50-80.
Most standard labs have a range of 0-30. With <30 being deficient. We see clinical benefits in taking Vitamin D in almost everyone with levels below 50.
After reading over 100 papers on Vitamin D, my recommendation for adults is 5,000 IU a day.
