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. Cutting-edge research suggests serum vitamin D levels should be in the range of 32-80 ng/mL 25-hydroxy vitamin 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. Individuals deficient in vitamin D may need 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D daily to replenish tissue stores. Thorne’s D-5,000 supplies 5,000 IU of pure vitamin D3 in each vegetarian capsule.
