Natures Plus Vitamin D3 1000iu: Studies suggest that cholecalciferol (D3) is the most bioavailable form of vitamin D, which has recently been the subject of renewed interest amongst nutritional scientists. A raft of new studies highlight the importance of Vitamin D, not only in its traditional role in bone support, but also in areas including immune and mental health.

Vitamin D is unique among essential nutrients, in that it is a vitamin that transforms into a hormone. Once ingested, vitamin D converts into a metabolite called 25-hydroxycholecaliciferol [25-OH-D3] in the liver, after which it converts into its active form 1,25 dihydroxycholecalciferol hormone, and like other hormones, it functions as a chemical messenger functions. Once it is produced in the kidney, the active form of vitamin D triggers several essential processes including:
(a) Mobilisation of calcium and phosphorus from bone tissue
(b) Absorption of calcium and phosphorus form food
(c) Thyroid and parathyroid function
(d) Nerve function
(e) Immune function

Dosage
One softgel daily.



Serving Size 1 Softgel: Amount Per Serving: Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) 1000 IU 250 %. Other Ingredients: Safflower oil, gelatin, glycerin, purified water.
