NOW® Vitamin D softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is ordinarily received from the diet or formulated by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However, it is not ample in food. As more persons refrain from sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ascertain that your body receives an adequate supply.

D-3 Vitamins, Now Foods / B001H1IK26
I started taking these after Prevention magazine reported that people with high vitamin D levels at the start of a diet tend to lose more weight. I realized I should probably be taking them anyway, as I pretty much see no sunlight for large chunks of the day. I love these pills – they’re super small and very easy to swallow.

The Best !!
By Nancy Adams
I am so glad to find this strength available on Amazon so affordable. These little tiny perles are so easy to take it’s a pleasure. My doctor told me that for high immunity he would recommend maintaining a blood level of 75-80 ng/mL. After a month on 5000 a day (one perle) he checked my level and it was only 35. He’s having me take 2 a day, 10,000 units, for 3 months and will check again. The correct test is called “25 Hydroxyvitamin D”.
There’s a lot of interesting information on this topic at[...], and they sell a home test.

Just What The Doctor Ordered!
By G. Lake
When visiting my doctor and describing my symptoms of lacking energy, lack of joy, some depression and several other factors, he said that I should consider taking 5,000mg of Vitamin D3 per day. I found it interesting that he said that many of the doctors in his building are taking it since finding that after about 2 months their energy and mood levels are significantly improved. Since I am always interested in what Doctors take themselves, I decided to study why this was true, so when at Bar and Nob, I found the Vitamin D Cure by James E Dowd, MD. ($14.95 or on line e-book for free [if you know where to look])and was very impressed. Nearly all my symptoms were noted in the V D3 deficiency list. As a matter of fact, both my teens and my wife have symptoms of V D3 deficiency as well! When telling my wife about my exciting “find”, she said that her doctor had prescribed it for her two months earlier (5,000mg/day.) Needless to say, NOW Brand of Vitamin D3 is the best value that I was able to find! It is pretty inexpensive for an 8 month supply (under $15 including shipping.) I would highly recommend reading the Vitamin D Cure and NOW Brand Vitamin D3 gel caps. Some Vitamin D deficiency symptoms from pg 10: fatigue, joint pain/or swelling, muscle pain pain, cramping, and/or weakness (leg cramps?), chronic pain, uncontrolled weight gain, high BP, restless sleep, poor concentration and memory, headaches, bowel and bladder problems. Unless you work outside most of the time, you are probably very deficient in Vitamin D…that is most of us!…the book says! Be well! NOW Foods Vitamin D3 5000 Iu, 240-Softgels,
