NOW Vitamin D-3 Chewable provides a gelatin-free format in an enjoyable naturally sweetened fruit flavour. This is a high potency dosage with 1000 IU per tablet. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However, it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, Vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply. Vitamin D is important in the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus and helps with the normal development and maintenance of bones and teeth.
