What is Organic Vitamin D3?
Organic Vitamin D3 is an organic, vegan vitamin D3 supplement that provides 5,000 IU per serving. It's made by extracting oil from hearty, nutrient-dense plants known as lichens. Often referred to as "the sunshine vitamin," vitamin D is an essential nutrient that supports brain function, cardiovascular health, bone strength, and the immune system. Vitamin D3, also called cholecalciferol, is the most biologically active form of the vitamin and what your body naturally produces when your skin is exposed to sunlight. However, unless you make it a point to get regular sun exposure, there's a good chance you're falling short of your requirements. This formula can help fill the gaps. It's a natural supplement made with D3 extracted from lichen. The powerful liquid formula is convenient and reliably provides the vitamin D you need to support your health. Try vitamin D3 and see how easy it is to give your well-being a boost. The two-ounce bottle lasts 30 days when used as directed.
The History and Invention of Organic Vitamin D3
"There are many vitamin D supplements, but most contain weak forms of vitamin D2, and very few are vegan. Most "vegetarian" vitamin D supplements are sourced from sheep's wool. This void led to the creation of Organic Vitamin D3 — the best vegan vitamin D3 formula available. Each serving has 5,000 IU of lichen-derived D3 suspended in organic vegetable glycerin for fast absorption and maximum bioavailability."

What's Not in Organic Vitamin D3?
What Are the Top 3 Questions People Ask About Organic Vitamin D3?
1. What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D supports many functions in the body, and getting enough is essential for good health. Among its many duties, vitamin D is a crucial nutrient that helps the muscles, teeth, bones, and immune system. It's required for us to produce the enzymes and proteins our bodies need to function correctly. In fact, all tissue in the body, including the brain and heart, has vitamin D receptors.
2. How do we get vitamin D?
Although vitamin D can be obtained naturally through sun exposure or food, those sources usually fall short of fulfilling our daily needs. There aren't many foods high in vitamin D, and the Vitamin D Council advises that diet alone isn't sufficient. As fears of skin cancer have increased, sun exposure has decreased. A supplement like Organic Vitamin D3 is widely considered the most reliable way to meet your vitamin D requirements.
3. Why is D3 superior to D2?
There are two types of vitamin D supplements: vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Vitamin D3 is the form naturally made by your body after sunlight exposure. Vitamin D2 is sourced from plants or manufactured in a laboratory and is not nearly as effective or biologically active. After reviewing the research and consulting experts, we've concluded that vitamin D3 is the better choice.

Frequently Asked Questions about Organic Vitamin D3
Who should take vitamin D supplements?
Everyone should be aware of vitamin D deficiency, and most people can take vitamin D supplements without issue. However, if you're taking heart medication, have hyperparathyroidism, Hodgkin’s or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a granulomatous disease, high blood calcium levels, kidney stones, kidney disease, liver disease, or hormonal disease, you should consult your healthcare specialist before adding a vitamin D supplement to your nutritional regimen.
How common is vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D deficiency can affect anyone, from newborns to the elderly. Dietary sources are few and inadequate. Without adequate sun exposure, which most people do not get, vitamin D deficiency is a very real possibility.
What are the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency?
Symptoms include muscle weakness, joint aches and discomfort, high blood pressure, inability to concentrate or focus, bladder issues, constipation, headaches, immune system decline, and mood disorders.
Why aren't dietary sources adequate?
There aren't many foods that offer a significant amount of vitamin D. The main sources are salmon, mackerel, bluefish, tuna, fortified milk, baby formula, cereal, and orange juice.
Is cod liver oil is a good source of vitamin D?
Cod liver oil does contain vitamin D, but it also contains large amounts of vitamin A. Vitamin A antagonizes the action of vitamin D and too much can be toxic. The Vitamin D Council warns against taking cod liver oil for this reason.
I'm a vegan, should I take more vitamin D3 than recommended?
Although a vegan diet itself may not provide the vitamin D you need, taking Organic Vitamin D3 as recommended can. This means there's no reason to take more than directed. Consult your healthcare provider, who is familiar with your needs, before doing so.
Can a person take too much vitamin D?
Yes, too much vitamin D can result in vitamin D toxicity. Indications of vitamin D toxicity include nausea, vomiting, constipation, weakness, and weight loss. It can also coincide with dangerously high calcium levels that may produce kidney stones, confusion, and abnormal heart rhythms. The Vitamin D Council recommends adults do not exceed the upper limit of 10,000 IU/day.
Shouldn't your D3 contain K2 and some magnesium to have better absorption?
In our experience, vitamin K assists in the delivery of calcium to the bone; however, it is not directly needed in the absorption of vitamin D3. Because of this, Organic Vitamin D3 only contains vitamin D3. Also, since most vitamin K2 comes from soy, we believe the better alternative to consider is vitamin K1, often found in green leafy vegetables, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage. So, in a nutshell, it may help to take the calcium/magnesium supplement and Organic Vitamin D3 (vitamin D3) with a balanced diet of vegetables like mentioned above to get your vitamin K.
How can I check my vitamin D levels?
Talk to your doctor about having a blood test to measure 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels. Make sure they do not order a test for 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D, as this is a common error.
