Leading supplement company Nordic Naturals announces the launch of Vitamin D3 5000. The premium, high-potency product is formulated to help correct or avoid vitamin D deficiency, and delivers 5000 I.U. of vitamin D in each soft gel.
“Vitamin D3 5000 will fast-track support, particularly for people who don’t get sufficient vitamin D through diet or sun exposure,” said Joar Opheim, Nordic Naturals CEO and Founder. “It’s an excellent choice for people at increased risk of deficiency, and also makes a perfect companion product to any of our omega-3s.”
While many of the company’s omega-3 fish oil products contain added Vitamin D, Nordic Naturals began offering stand-alone vitamin D products several years ago in response to the scientific community’s determination that people worldwide are deficient in it. Nordic Naturals only offers products containing cholecalciferol, the natural form of vitamin D that the human body makes from sunlight. Experts agree this form is better absorbed and more effectively utilized.
Research shows that vitamin D performs a variety of functions in optimizing health. It is best known for its role in building and maintaining strong bones by improving the body’s absorption of the minerals calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D also helps regulate the immune system, mood, and sleep rhythms, and plays key roles in the life cycle of human cells.
In addition to Vitamin D3 5000, the company’s portfolio includes three products that offer 1000 I.U. per serving—Nordic Vitamin D3™ soft gels, wild-berry flavored Vitamin D3 Gummies, and Vitamin D3 Vegan, which is sourced from lichen and registered by the Vegan Society.
