Vitamin D3

  • MA-additive-free
  • MW-wheat-free
  • OS-soy-free
  • PY-yeast-free
  • QH-non-gmo

Harmonic Innerprizes uses the highest quality cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) available. They choose cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) over ergocalciferol (Vitamin D2) because it has proved to be more easily metabolized by the body. Because the Vitamin D molecule is relatively unstable, they microencapsulated it for effective time release, greater stability, and a longer shelf life.

A Statement of Quality

Supplementing with Harmonic Innerprizes Vitamin D3 is an excellent way to supply your body with the natural Vitamin D3 it needs. This excellent product:

  • Contains the highest quality cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) available
  • Is available in high potencies of 5,000 and 10,000 IUs
  • Is microencapsulated for time release

Why is Vitamin D3 Important?

Clinical observations show most people are deficient in Vitamin D. Nutritional science clearly shows Vitamin D does much more for the body than help build strong bones. Vitamin D3 also:

  • Is vital for strong immunity†
  • May support cardiovascular function†
  • Helps maintain a healthy level of Vitamin D3 while sun protection measures are taken

How Do I Know if I am Deficient in Vitamin D?

The only sure way is a blood test. According to the most recent data from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey on the status of Vitamin D in the US population, most Americans have levels less than 30 ng/mL. When looking at the elderly, research shows that more than 50 percent have levels below 20 ng/mL. These figures suggest that the majority of Americans have insufficient levels of Vitamin D and therefore have insufficient immune response to fight off any pathogenic organisms. Most medical experts suggest the optimal blood level of Vitamin D should be between 50 ng/mL and 125 ng/mL.

These labs offer testing for Vitamin D without requiring a doctor's order:

How Much Should I Supplement?

It is important to know your Vitamin D levels for accurate determination, so a blood test is always a good idea. If you live in areas that lack sunshine, or whenever you do go out in the sun you use sunscreen, you may be quite deficient. Begin with 10,000 IUs per day for a month to build up levels. After that, 5,000 IUs is usually more than adequate. If you get adequate sunshine through the day, 2000 IUs per day may be a satisfactory amount. As always, check with your doctor before you begin any taking any supplement.


Vitamin D Deficiency - Why are we so deficient, and what are the repercussions?

All vitamins and minerals are essential to life. Therefore, deficiencies in any essential nutrient will ultimately lead to a disease condition. A deficiency in Vitamin D can lead to many health issues because it is involved in so many aspects of our physical well being. Curiously, the populations of industrialized nations are predominantly Vitamin D deficient . How could this be?

In the late 1970s, there were government warnings that holes in the ozone could cause skin cancer, especially if you stayed in the sun too long and/or you did not use sunscreen. Well, most people listened, and as a result people started blocking the life giving light of the sun, which includes the photosynthesis of Vitamin D in the skin.

Supplementing with Harmonic Innerprizes Vitamin D3 is an excellent way to supply your body with the natural Vitamin D3 it needs while continuing to protect your skin from the sun's rays.


Health Issues Resulting from Vitamin D Deficiency

Diabetes and Vitamin D

Vitamin D is necessary for the biosynthesis of insulin. According to the International Diabetes Federation, the number of people around the world with diabetes surged from 30 million to 230 million since 1980. Studies confirm that Vitamin D deficiency predisposes individuals to Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. According to a study appearing in Diabetologia, Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to impair insulin synthesis and secretion in humans and in animals, suggesting a role in the development of Type 2 Diabetes.

Furthermore, epidemiological studies suggest a link between Vitamin D deficiency in early life and the later onset of Type 1 Diabetes. Since Type 1 Diabetes is associated with certain polymorphisms within the Vitamin D receptor gene, Vitamin D deficiency may be involved in the pathogenesis of both forms of diabetes.1

It is thought that mothers with Vitamin D deficiency can pass it on to their children. According to a study published in the November issue of Pediatrics, 6.3 million U.S. children are Vitamin D deficient.

Immune System and Vitamin D

Antimicrobial peptides are important members of the host defense system. They have a broad ability to kill microbes. In addition to their role as endogenous antibiotics, antimicrobial peptides help the body to control inflammation, are involved in wound repair and the regulation of the adaptive immune system. The adaptive immune system is a part of the immune system that constantly needs to adjust for an ever changing environment, such as from summer to winter.
