The letters “IU” (as in Vitamin D3, 5000 IU) mean “international units.” International Units are a way of measuring vitamins and other nutrients.
But the absolute amount of an “International Unit” varies from one vitamin or nutrient to another.
Labels now require the metric measurement. In the case of Vitamin D, that’s micrograms, or mcg.
Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because your skin produces it naturally when exposed to sunlight. But there are lots of good reasons you don’t want sun exposure to be your only source.
Vitamin D supports brain function, helps maintain bone strength and immune system response and can even help you maintain blood pressure already within the normal range. So it is really, really important that you make sure you’re getting enough vitamin D3 every day.
Vitamin D and Your Brain
Vitamin D is important at all life stages, but especially so as we grow older. Here’s why:
Optimal serum levels of vitamin D (serum means “in your blood”) corresponds to maintaining one’s cognitive ability, especially as we age.
Plus, some people don’t get the opportunity to go outside as much as they age—so take vitamin D.
We know that calcium is required to help keep your bones strong, especially as you age.
But how does your body get calcium into your bones? The answer is, it uses vitamin D (along with vitamin K and certain trace minerals).
Vitamin D helps get calcium into your bone matrix, which in turns supports strong bones.
Heart, Blood Pressure & Beyond
Vitamin D also helps regulate calcium balance in your bloodstream (vitamin K helps too).
Vitamin D may also help your body inhibit excess levels of an enzyme called renin. Doing so helps maintain already normal blood pressure levels.
In addition to all of this, getting enough vitamin D3 is also important for your immune system.
The recommended daily intake (or RDI) of vitamin D3 for adults and children older than four years is only 20 mcg. But this will only keep you from not getting enough vitamin D to function.
We recommend that adults get between 125 mcg and 200 mcg of vitamin D3 every day. If your multivitamin is already delivering between 25-75 mcg of vitamin D, a stand-alone supplement like this one is the perfect pairing.
If you don’t know how much vitamin D3 you should take (or you’re concerned you’re not getting enough), there’s a blood test called a 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test. Make sure to review the results with your medical advisor.
