Kirkman Labs Vitamin D3 1000IU (120 Caps)
Vitamin D has many roles in the body. This nutrient is needed for bone growth and maintenance. Strong evidence suggests that it supports calcium absorption, modulates cell growth and supports neuromuscular and immune system function.
Scientists are discovering that inadequate vitamin D is a widespread problem. As a result, there have been several recent increases in the recommended daily intake of vitamin D. Relatively few foods naturally contain vitamin D. It is best obtained from sunshine; however, the use of sunscreen can limit the amount of vitamin D absorbed from the sun. People living in cloudy or rainy climates are also often prone to low vitamin D levels.
Intake of vitamin D3 and calcium could potentially prevent 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer annually in the United States and Canada, according to a complex computer prediction model. This model also predicted that 75 percent of deaths from these cancers could be prevented with adequate intake of vitamin D3 and calcium.
