Description of Vitamin D3 7000 IU, 60 Softgels, Life Extension
Life Extension Vitamin D-3
Special Purpose Formula.
Life Extension recommends that healthy adults supplement each day with at least 2,000 IU of vitamin D. Elderly adults may benefit from higher doses such as 5,000 IU daily up to 10,000 IU daily. The objective of taking a vitamin D supplement is to achieve an optimal 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood level of between 50-80 ng/mL.
Vitamin D in the amount of 2,000 IU is contained in the multi-nutrient Life Extension Mix™ and the multivitamin Two-Per-Day. A vitamin D blood test can help you determine the additional amount of vitamin D you may need to supplement to achieve an optimal level.
Some individuals (such as those weighing more than 180 pounds) may require higher potencies of vitamin D. When combined with 1,000-3,000 IU obtained from multi-nutrient formulas, this 7,000 IU vitamin D3 softgel should enable these individuals to attain optimal 25-hydroxyvitamin D blood levels.
