Swanson Premium high Potency Vitamin D-3 5,000 IU is our highest potency vitamin D supplement available. Americans need more vitamin D, and experts across the country are calling for changes to the RDA and suggesting that a majority of us are not getting enough. Vitamin D is vital to healthy bones, strong immune system functions and mental/emotional wellness. Sunlight helps our bodies produce vitamin D, but our production capacity is limited...especially in winter months when sun exposure is reduced.

The current RDA for vitamin D is between 200 IU and 600 IU for the average person based on age, weight and health status. But most experts now recommend that healthy individuals take in up to 1,000 IU on top of what they might get through diet and multivitamins. Those in Northern climates or with greater needs may need even more. Our new 5,000 IU vitamin D-3 softgels answer the need for those who require higher intake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from D3 I love the size of the softgel. Easy to swallow. My vitamin D test came out perfectly. I also take K2 in the softgel. I am considering an automatic shipment of my supplements. Swanson ships quickly and accurately. I am very pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value I like these capsules because they are so small and easy to take. They are reasonably priced too, what more can I ask? My naturalpath physician recommends that I take Vitamin D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use the vitamin from another source On the radio one saturday morning a info ad was talking about vt. D3 and its benifits. Called the phone # after I heard about this Vit. D3 checked it out via phone call found out the price and was shocked. it was almost triple the cost of Swanson vit. D3 . hecking out all information about Swanson procedures of giving the customer the best quality to comumer I decided to purchase a bottle. Well its been a month of use the feeling/mood better based on how I feelt last winter. Had less dislike for the winter gray days.In other words the Vitamin 5000 mg vitamin D 3 must be doing the trick to boost my overall feeling during the low sunny days. Eating habits are the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend! As a porcelain skinned "ginger" the sun is not my friend. Unfortunately this isn't good for my vitamin D level. When my doctor first checked my level it was 5. He strongly recommended supplements. After taking Swanson Premium Highest Potency Vitamin D-3 5000 IU, at 2 pills per day, for three months my level rose to 65. More than one year later my level remains in the 60's and I'm feeling better then ever. I plan to remain on the supplements indefinitely, under my doctors care and with regular testing, and will continue to purchase from Swanson. The stuff works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to swalow I'm amazed at how tiny the capsules are and how easy they are to swallow. I don't get a lot of sun where I live so this is a great product that supplies a good amount of daily vitamin D. It has also provided me with great immune support during the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from daily staple My doctor found a D3 deficiency in my blood test 2 years ago and suggested 5000. Subsequent tests reveal these have helped considerably. I feel better overall since I began taking these and I never miss a day. Another one of my tope 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, affordable product Great, inexpensive source of D3, especially in the cold midwestern months of winter. Easy to swallow tablets. Often available on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the fact I like the fact that you can get a full 5000 IU in a single capsule. That's pretty much the minimum for immune enhancement. So the high potency makes it easier to meet that mark on a daily basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever Was feeling very sluggish and a doctor suggested Vitamin D-3. It has changed my life. I am motivated again.
Date published: 2012-08-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Probably Need This I can't make a medical claim, but I can tell you that most informed sources say that few people in Northern countries (like the U.S.) get close to enough vitamin D from the sun or food sources. I've noticed improvements I can't discuss, but can't recommend this product highly enough. It's obviously high quality, and you won't find anything similar for this price, even at discount stores whose supplements are notoriously unreliable in quality and strength. I hope you'll inform yourself about the health advantages of getting enough vitamin D3, and start taking the amount you need--especially if you don't get much sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamin D low per our Doctor! I was diagnosed with low vitamin D a few years ago by my doctor and I tried a few other brands prior to switching all my vitamin's to Swanson's about a year ago. My husband ask his doctor to check his vitamin D level, about 1 year ago, and he was also low (30) so he started taking 2 tablets daily. He just checked his level and it is 59.4 and it took me about 2 to 3 years to find this kind of improvement when I was buying vitamins anywhere they were on sale. Swanson's vitamins has great quality, quantity and I can say we both feel better since changing all of our vitamin's to Swanson's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from way up! I know this really works, because my Vit.D level in my blood test is way up. Thank you.
