Your body actually makes vitamin D when skin is exposed to sunlight. For anyone who spends little to no time in the sun, though, vitamin D supplements may be helpful. The elderly in particular have been known to have low levels of vitamin D. Get your "Sunshine Vitamin" with Swanson Higher Potency Vitamin D-3! This unique formula has received a lot of press by researchers and health professionals. It is best known for promoting bone, immune and emotional health.* Our potent formula delivers 2,000 IUs of vitamin D-3 per capsule.


Q: Why are these considered dry?
A: They are considered dry because the vitamin D-3 is not suspended in a liquid oil; rather, it is in a dry powder inside the capsule.

Q: Is the Vitamin D-3 in this supplement sourced from fish or lanolin?
A: It is from lanolin.

Higher Potency Vitamin D-3 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 215.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamine D-3 I'm satisfied with product. I received it a few days after the order and comes secure and in appropriate package. Thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contains sugar and modified food starch We were very surprised and disappointed to see this product has added sugar and modified food starch (an excito-toxin). Do not understand why these additives are needed. This product does not meet with Swanson's high standards of ingredients.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and seems to work I usually get another brand of D-3, but I get this when it is on sale, and I take it on trips. I have to take 2000 twice a day, so when I can get a name brand I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works I feel the difference. It's worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality I have to have Vitamin D so this product is great for me. Very easy to swallow. I love the small size and the amount you get for the price. Keeps well so the quality is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from D is a healer- get it Amazing product for a reasonable price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not happy I have been buying this product for years and had been very satisfied until this last shipment. They have reduced the capsule size and it make it very hard for me to handle.
Date published: 2015-08-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higher Potency Vitamin D-3 This is my "go-to" brand for D-3 when it's at the special sale price. I used to get the NOW formulation packaged together with K2, but I prefer the Life Extension Super K and Swanson's D-3 instead. The potencies are simply better when I buy D-3 and K separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higher Potency D-3 I rely on the description basically, because physically I can't tell. Based on the description, a good value and a good product. Absolutely nothing negative to say about the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably a neccesity in these dreary Minnesota winters. Smaller capsule, easy to take

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Since I don't sunbath anymore, I depend on this to supply the Vit D/3 my body needs. I would recommend it to everyone since Vit D/3 is so important to your health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2,000 IU D-3 This was recommended to me by a physician that is in to vitamins and herbs which is hard to find. I was taking 5,000 a day and obtained a multi-vitamin with D-3 in it and switched to this one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appetite suppressant I've read in several articles that there is a correlation between being overweight and deficient in vitamin D. I purchased this product hoping this supplement would curb my appetite. I have a protein drink for breakfast and then take one of these capsules. I stay full until lunch unless I make the mistake of snacking. Once I start eating I want to continue so the best option for me is to not snack between breakfast and lunch and then I eat a huge salad with my own homemade dressing and some protein like hard boiled eggs to keep me going until dinner. This supplement works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I highly recommend Vitamin D to anyone, and these are reasonably priced for the amount you get in a bottle.
Date published: 2014-10-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from take this! Everyone in the Northeast is deficient in vitamin D. Take at least 2,000 iu's in the winter!
Date published: 2014-06-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sunshine! After a VERY HARSH winter and a TOTAL lack of sunlight from being cooped up indoors, this product has helped me to get my Vitamin D and I am grateful. It doesn't replace sunlight but it helps when you need a good dose of Vitamin D!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff My Dr. wanted me to start taking D3, a friend of mine introduced me to Swanson Vitamins. I still searched the internet and stores and found it to be the best price. When I received it, I saw that it was the best quality as well!
Date published: 2014-04-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product My doctor wants me to take Vitamin D daily. I have been taking this Swanson brand for about two years. The doctor is very satisfied with my vitamin D levels. I'll continue taking it.
Date published: 2014-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good level D3 I am prone to low vitamin D levels. This product seems to help keep my vitamin D at normal levels.
Date published: 2014-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I don't really know if I need this or not, but seems that everyone is recommending that we get enough of it. And since I'm one that rarely goes out in the sun much (even in the summer), I know I'm not getting what I need from the sun, so I take it because it's supposed to be good for me, and the cost is reasonable.
Date published: 2014-03-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Vitamin D-3 Powder Form in Caps I've taken this product once daily from Dec to Feb because my Dec blood test showed deficient level of Vitamin-D. My blood test in Feb did not show a significant improvement. I am still deficient so I am switching away from this dry powder product to a liquid gel cap, 5000mg once a day. I will have my blood tested in a month to monitor my progress.
Date published: 2014-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works This is a product that works. Our doctor had prescribed the mega dose once weekly Vit. D for both myself and my husband but the numbers were not improving more than 1 or 2 points. I started taking this 4 times a day for about 3 months and now take it 2 times daily. My Vit. D went from 29 to 69 and has remained at this level for more than 2 years. I have my husband on it now and his level is also greatly improving.
