Recent reports show that populations around the world are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. The problem is widespread and increasing, with potentially severe repercussions for overall health and bone-fracture rates. There is evidence that suggests vitamin D deficiency increases during the winter months because of decreased exposure to sunlight, although vitamin D deficiency may also occur during the summer months. USANA® Vitamin D supplement is formulated with maximum strength vitamin D to ensure you get the vitamin D you need in one tablet.
Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone mineralization and growth, maintenance of muscle strength and coordination, cardiovascular health, and robust and balanced immune function.

THE BENEFITS OF USANA® Vitamin D
Vitamin D status is a factor in the maintenance of good health. However, reports continue to show that populations around the world are suffering from vitamin D deficiency. In the U.S. alone, only one third are getting adequate amounts of vitamin D daily. The problem is widespread and increasing, with potentially severe repercussions for overall health.
Many cells in your body have vitamin D receptors and need vitamin D to function properly, including those in your skin and brain. USANA® Vitamin D supplement is formulated with a high level of vitamin D to help prevent deficiency by ensuring you get adequate amounts throughout the entire year.
THE SCIENCE OF USANA® Vitamin D
Vitamin D promotes a healthy, balanced immune system through its key role in regulation and differentiation of immune system cells. It also has been linked to healthy endothelial function, which is important for cardiovascular health. And, it also helps maintain normal functioning of the nervous system.*
In addition, recent research has shown the following:
- Vitamin D may play a role in keeping our lungs healthy, with higher concentrations of vitamin D resulting*
in positive effects on lung function and health.*
- Vitamin D may play a role in helping elderly people maintain lean muscle mass.*
Healthy vitamin D levels are a key part of minimizing age-associated bone loss. Vitamin D supports the development and maintenance of bones and teeth by helping in the absorption and use of calcium.* Calcium is the major structural element of bones and teeth. Your body needs several nutrients in order for calcium to be absorbed and used properly. Two of these nutrients are vitamin D and vitamin K. Vitamin D increases absorption of calcium from the small intestine so the body receives maximum benefit, while vitamin K helps make sure calcium builds up in the bones and not in soft tissues. Adequate calcium and vitamin D throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis.*
Although vitamin D can be toxic in very large doses, toxicity is rarely the biggest cause for anxiety. Instead, deficiency has become relatively common. Vitamin D deficiency has been correlated to a number of health concerns. Because of the prevalence of deficiency, in the most recent revision of the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI), the recommended dietary intake for certain age groups was increased as much as 50 percent. Talk to your doctor about healthy vitamin D levels, and ask for a test to find out if you are deficient.
THE USANA DIFFERENCE
USANA® Vitamin D supplement is made with cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), which research suggests is better than competing forms at raising levels of vitamin D in the blood. A clinical study conducted by USANA scientists showed individuals taking USANA products are six times more likely to have vitamin D levels in the optimal range.*
Even when the winter months are behind us, it doesn’t mean your body needs less of a good thing. USANA® Vitamin D supplement is a safe and easy way to get 2,000 IU of maximum-strength vitamin D enhanced with 30 μg of vitamin K.*
