Vitamin D3 -Solal Technologies

Ask a question about this product

Vitamin D3

Although sunlight exposure results in some vitamin D production, recent research shows that not enough vitamin D is produced this way, especially with most people now staying out of the sun or applying sunblock, which dramatically reduces vitamin D production. Vitamin D dietary supplementation is important to maintain healthy levels of calcium by increasing calcium absorption and reducing urinary calcium loss. In addition to maintaining healthy bones and teeth, vitamin D also helps support the immune system and heart health. SOLAL’s Vitamin D3 contains the safest and most effective D3 form of vitamin D, not D1 or D2.
 

Product Indications

Although sunlight exposure results in vitamin D production, recent research suggests that most individuals are no longer getting enough sun exposure to meet their vitamin D requirements. Vitamin D supplementation is important to maintain healthy levels of calcium by increasing calcium absorption and reducing urinary calcium loss, thereby maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Vitamin D also helps maintain healthy cardiovascular function in some individuals. Vitamin D is believed to provide general cellular support, including to breast and prostate tissue. This may be partly due to immune cell activity and healthy cell metabolism. Vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells and are believed to support healthy immune function.
 

Product Composition

Each tablet contains the following as active ingredient:

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) 500IU

Sugar free.

Storage Instructions

Store in a cool dry place, out of the reach of children.
 

Pharmacological Action

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is a fat soluble vitamin synthesized in the skin via 7-dehydrocholesterol, a cholesterol precursor. Vitamin D3 then requires hydroxylation to form the active metabolite, calcitriol. Latest research indicates that cholecalciferol is significantly more potent and effective in humans than vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) derived from plant sources. The major biological function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D plays a role in the absorption of calcium and reducing urinary loss of calcium, thereby supporting healthy bones and teeth. Calcitriol also appears to have effects in the brain, heart, pancreas, mononuclear cells, activated lymphocytes, and skin, but its exact physiologic role has not yet been fully elucidated.
 

Dosage Directions

Adults and children over 4 years of age: Take as directed by your health care provider.
 

Product Warnings

Do not exceed recommended dosages unless on the advice of a health care provider. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. If you are on any medication or suffering from any medical condition, it is advisable to seek medical advice before starting any new medicine, supplement or remedy.

Side Effects

Side effects may include gastrointestinal complaints. Doses above 4000IU per day may cause vitamin D toxicity leading to excessive blood calcium levels. When taking high doses it is important to have your vitamin D blood levels checked regularly. Symptoms of excessive blood calcium levels may include weakness, fatigue, sleepiness, headache, loss of appetite, dry mouth, metallic taste, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, constipation, diarrhoea, dizziness, ringing in the ears, trouble walking, skin eruptions, muscle pain, bone pain, irritability, runny nose, itching, decreased libido and kidney insufficiency.

Product Interactions

Aluminium: The protein which transports calcium across the intestinal wall can also bind and transport aluminium. This mechanism may contribute to increased aluminium levels and toxicity in people with renal failure, when they take vitamin D and aluminium-containing phosphate binders chronically. Calcipotriene: Calcipotriene is a vitamin D analog used topically for psoriasis. It can be absorbed in sufficient amounts to cause systemic effects, including hypercalcemia. Theoretically, combining calcipotriene with vitamin D supplements might increase the risk of hypercalcemia. Digoxin: High doses of vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia. Hypercalcemia increases the risk of fatal cardiac arrhythmias with digoxin. Avoid vitamin D doses above 2000IU/day for adults and monitor serum calcium levels in individuals taking vitamin D and digoxin concurrently. Diltiazem: High doses of vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia. Hypercalcemia can reduce the effectiveness of verapamil in atrial fibrillation. Theoretically this could also occur with diltiazem. Avoid vitamin D doses above 2000 units/day for adults and monitor serum calcium levels in individuals taking vitamin D and diltiazem concurrently. Thiazide diuretics: Thiazide diuretics decrease urinary calcium excretion, which could lead to hypercalcemia if vitamin D supplements are taken concurrently. This has been reported in individuals being treated with vitamin D for hypoparathyroidism, and also in elderly people with normal parathyroid function who were taking a thiazide diuretic, vitamin D, and calcium-containing antacids daily. Use combinations of thiazides and vitamin D with caution and monitor serum calcium levels. Thiazide diuretics include chlorothiazide, hydrochlorothiazide, indapamide, metolazone, chlorthalidone and others. Verapamil: Hypercalcemia due to high doses of vitamin D can reduce the effectiveness of verapamil in atrial fibrillation. Avoid vitamin D doses above 2000 IU/day for adults and monitor serum calcium levels in people taking vitamin D and verapamil concurrently.

Special Precautions

Arteriosclerosis: Hypercalcemia can contribute to arteriosclerosis, particularly in individuals with kidney disease. Use supplemental vitamin D cautiously. Hyperparathyroidism: Vitamin D may increase calcium levels in people with hyperparathyroidism. Use supplemental vitamin D cautiously. Lymphoma: Vitamin D may increase calcium levels in people with lymphoma. In some kinds of lymphoma, vitamin D is more readily converted to calcitriol and may result in hypercalcemia and complications such as kidney stones and calcified tissue. Use supplemental vitamin D cautiously.

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

Consult your doctor or pharmacist for dosage recommendations if you are pregnant or while breastfeeding.
