Vitamin D -3


Vitamin D is found in fish, milk, and sunlight. The body needs vitamin D to promote bone growth. It is used to prevent and treat scurvy. Vitamin D has been used to strengthen bones and ease symptoms of depression. It has also been used to promote organ and blood health.

Vitamin D can be taken as a pill, powder, or tincture. It can also be injected into the bloodstream or muscle by a healthcare provider.


600 IU (International Units) daily
