Optimal Vitamin D Liquid by Seeking Health provides a potent 50 mcg (2,000 IU) dose of vitamin D3 per drop, in pure olive oil base. Vitamin D is essential for the normal functioning of many important systems in the body and is needed to support a healthy immune system and long-term bone health. Many do not get sufficient vitamin D3 in their diet, and the synthetic vitamin D2 that is added to dairy products is not typically well-absorbed or included in sufficient amounts. Vitamin D3 occurs naturally in fatty fish, fish oil (especially cod liver oil), egg yolks, and beef liver. Optimal Vitamin D contains cholecalciferol derived from cholesterol in sheep’s wool, making it suitable for vegetarians.*
The amount of vitamin D3 that an individual needs varies due to a variety of factors. Some factors that contribute to vitamin D deficiency include spending most of the day indoors, using sunscreen, less sunny climates, or darker skin tone (melanin blocks UVB rays, which produce vitamin D in the skin).*
Vitamin D deficiency symptoms and individuals needs for this nutrient vary depending on the individual, so we recommend consulting with a physician or qualified healthcare professional for testing prior to using a high-potency vitamin D supplement. The liquid format of Optimal Vitamin D makes it easy to tailor the dose to fit your specific needs, and may be easier to take than capsules or softgels for some individuals. Optimal Vitamin D is free from artificial fillers, flow agents, preservatives, or flavors.*
