Thorne Research - Vitamin D-10,000 - 60 Vegetarian Capsules

  • $21.00

Thorne Research D-10,000 offers support for bones. It is essential to maintain healthy vitamin D levels throughout all stages of life, from fetal development to old age. Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body. The current recommended daily vitamin D intake ranges from 200-600 IU and is based on the minimum allowance to protect against bone disease. However, an upward revision of the FDA's guideline is now under consideration in light of new research, especially pertaining to immune function. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 32-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D). Although direct sunlight exposure is a good source of vitamin D, many people do not get enough sun due to season change, latitude, or lifestyle. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation can be of great benefit in these cases. Vitamin D deficiency is quite common, particularly among the elderly.* For example, a study conducted at a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, found an almost universal vitamin D deficiency among a group of 548 elderly patients. Individuals deficient in vitamin D may need 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D daily to replenish tissue stores.* Other individuals who may need higher doses of vitamin D include the obese (the more a person weighs, the greater their vitamin D requirements), individuals with chronic disease, darker-skinned populations, and those with fat malabsorption.

Recommended usage take 1 capsule daily or as directed by your health care professional.
