Vitamin D is a steroid hormone that is part of a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones best known for the role they play in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal tract. A growing body of research highlights vitamin D's important role in supporting other body systems, including cardiovascular and blood sugar balance, musculoskeletal strength, and neurological and immune function, enabled by vitamin D's ability to target over 200 different genes throughout the body.
Vitamin D3 50,000 IU is ideal for those who have difficulty achieving and maintaining peak vitamin D levels. For those who require an immediate boost in their vitamin D status, the vitamin D3 50,000 IU formulation is a convenient, effective way to get the substantial support they need.

Vitamin D Depletion
While it has long been assumed that the majority of the population achieves adequate levels of vitamin D through exposure to the sun, the biosynthesis of the nutrient is affected by time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing and sunscreen. Depleted levels of vitamin D may interfere with the normal development of teeth and bones, normal cell growth, and contribute to poor regulation of immune and nervous systems.
Bone and Dental Health
Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of vitamin D to maintaining healthy bone density.
Cardiometabolic Health and Blood Sugar Balance
In light of the role that vitamin D plays in a variety of tissues and body systems, it comes as no surprise that much research from recent years has underscored its contribution to cardiometabolic wellness. Vitamin D has also been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
Immune Health and Modulation
One of the more profound functions of vitamin D is its ability to modulate immunity. An important recent study suggested that improving vitamin D status significantly affects the expression of genetic pathways linked to immune activity. Vitamin D has been shown to boost the immune response by up-regulating specific genes.
Numerous studies also point to the key role of vitamin D in supporting musculoskeletal strength and comfort.
Safety and Efficacy of High Dose Vitamin D
Vitamin D research is continually evolving and now includes safety and efficacy studies on high doses of up to 50,000 IU.
