Vitamin D3 5000
Promotes: Calcium and Bone Metabolism* • Healthy Cell Replication*

Jarrow FORMULAS® Vitamin D3 provides cholecalciferol, the most bioavailable form
of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is converted by the kidneys into the hormone calcitriol,
the active form of vitamin D3. Calcitriol enhances calcium and phosphorous
absorption, stimulates the synthesis of osteocalcin (an important structural
protein in bone), and is involved in proper cell differentiation (changing of
cell function), including in prostate cells.* Jarrow FORMULAS® Vitamin D3 is
tested and verified to be free of vitamin A.
Adequate calcium and vitamin D as part of a healthful diet, along
with physical activity, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
For adults, take 1 softgel every other day with a meal, or as directed by your
qualified health care consultant.
Individuals consuming more than 2,000 IU/day of vitamin D should
