Vitamin D levels have been found to be inadequate in many individuals and daily need appears to be higher than previously thought. Many children on the autism spectrum struggle with malabsorption, limited sun exposure, or certain illnesses may need higher intakes of vitamin D. Vitamin D’s role in calcium metabolism and bone health is well known. However, it has many other important physiologic roles that are not as well appreciated. Vitamin D3, the naturally occurring form, is supplied in high-potency amount of 1,000 IU per capsule for those needing to conveniently augment dietary intake. A daily vitamin D3 intake of 1,000 to 2,000 units, an amount shown to be safe and effective by clinical studies, is now advised by many experts.
Suggested Use: 1 capsule daily with food.
