  • Supports brain, muscle and immune system health

  • Enhances calcium absorption

  • Stimulates synthesis of osteocalcin for bone density
Jarrow Formulas Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is derived from cod liver oil and sheep's wool and is free of Vitamin A. Fat-soluble Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol, the activated form of Vitamin D3, which nourishes a variety of target tissues, including bone, intestine, muscle, brain, skin and immune system cells. Calcitriol enhances calcium and phosphorous absorption and stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin, an important structural protein in bone. Also, calcitriol is involved in proper cell differentiation (changing of cell function), including prostate cells. Each softgel provides 400 IU, or 10 mcg, of vitamin D as cholecalciferol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't like the heat!` I am disabled and do not get out in the sunshine very often and I do not drink milk. My doctor suggested that I take a D3 vitamin to keep my body in balance. Not sure what it has done for the past 20 years, but blood tests show that my vitamin D levels are great!

Q: Why are some vitamin D products measured in IU while others are in mcg?

Due to changes in FDA labeling guidelines, vitamin D amounts must now be listed in micrograms (mcg) on supplement facts and nutrition labels instead of international units (IU). Although these new guidelines were issued in 2016, updates weren't required until June 2020.

At Swanson, we began updating our labels in early 2017. You will see a mixture of both IU and mcg as our national brand partners complete this process.

Q: Did my vitamin D supplement change?

A: You may have noticed a change in the daily value percentage on your favorite vitamin D product, but that doesn't mean your product changed. The FDA increased the recommended daily intake (RDA) of vitamin D, which means the same product with the same ingredient amounts fulfills a lower percentage of the RDA than it prior to the change.

Q: How much vitamin D do I need each day?

In 2016, the Food and Nutrition Board increased the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin D for most adults from 10 mcg (400 IU) to 15 mcg (600 IU) per day, and 20 mcg (800 IU) for ages 70+.

Some doctors and nutritionists recommend higher daily vitamin D intakes, especially for those at risk for having low levels. The Vitamin D Council, an organization dedicated to raising awareness about vitamin D, recommends average adults supplement with 125 mcg (5,000 IU) of vitamin D daily. Talk with your doctor about your individual needs.
