SAD? this will help.

By 

from USA

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

I live in Alaska. During the summer when the sun is out almost all the time I lower my vitamin D supplement intake to almost nothing. When the nights start to become longer and out days become shorter I break out the vitamin D again. I have found that these soft gels are so much easier to take than a traditional vitamin D chalky pill. They are tiny, smooth and slippery enough to go down. The chalky ones are so tiny they tend to get stuck i the throat or back of the tongue. I was skeptical about the whole vitamin D thing, I thought it was all just a fad. I took them because my doctor advised adding them to my daily vitamin and supplement routine. I also got my partner to take them. He is 59 now but 6 years ago the darkness, even though he was born and raised in Alaska, started to make him tired, lethargic and depressed. He was already taking a low dose of 1000 IU but he did not seem to be coming out of the depression. I got him to double the dose to 2000 IU and within about 2 weeks he was a new person. He had more energy and was happier. It really was a huge change in a short period of time. If you live in a dark climate or suffer from SAD I would strongly suggest adding Vitamin D to your routine.

Great pill

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

When my Dr. told me that I needed to start taking vitamin D, I immediately listened. According to her, she thinks that it's going to be one of the next vitamins that we discover is extremely important to overall health. Since they can now measure your vitamin D level through lab work, she was able to tell that mine was low. So I got this brand of vitamin D, and started taking it. It's easy to take, and easy to swallow. Plus, this is a brand that is frequently on sale at local pharmacies and drug stores. You can also often find coupons for this brand as well. This all makes it all the more affordable. That was one of my concerns, when my Dr. told me that there was another thing that I needed to add to my daily regimen of pills. But the nature's bounty brand has generally seemed to be quite affordable, and so I haven't minded adding this to my daily pill box. Since this also gives you a two in one benefit, with having the calcium in it, it provides that added bonus as well.

Love Nature's Bounty Calcium 1200mg plus Vitamin D!

By 

from Barboursville, WV

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

I have been taking Nature's Bounty Calcium 1200mg plus Vitamin D for about a year now and really, really feel better, especially in the fall/winter where I do not get enough sunshine for Vitamin D, nor do I eat properly to get the amount required.  Being female and almost 50, I really need calcium and Vitamin D so this is just a wonderful vitamin for me.

You're less likely to choke on this Calcium/D3 combo!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

Trying to swallow a giant, dry calcium tablet generally comes in a close second to sticking a finger down your throat.  Now, however, **NATURE'S BOUNTY** has come up with a large but easier-to-swallow "liquid filled absorbable" that throws in Vitamin D3 to boot.  The name?  **NATURE'S BOUNTY Calcium 1200mg Plus 1000 IU Vitamin D3**.

This is a terrific duo.  Most of us need added calcium in our diet, and Vitamin D3 facilitates the *absorption* of calcium.  Better than that, we've got a good full+ dose of the current potential cure-all -- Vitamin D.  In this case, we add a "3" and have the kind of Vitamin D that's produced in our skin after exposure to the B light from the sun (or artificial sources).

**NATURE'S BOUNTY **also adds up what I call its "NO" list.  Here it is:  NO artificial flavor or sweetener.  NO preservatives or Sugar.  NO Starch, Milk or Lactose.  NO gluten, wheat, yeast or fish.  And finally?  This product is Sodium Freeeeee!

 

***HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL with VITAMIN D***

Since Vitamin D's the current rage, I'll mention that it suggests hope in conditions/diseases including psoriasis*, *muscle weakness and low back pain, breast cancer prevention, colorectal cancer, diabetes, fall prevention (!), high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, tooth retention, post-menopausal weight gain, prostate cancer, and *MORE*!

 

***HOPE'S GREAT.  Here's the CURRENT REALITY***

Most of the data given on the Mayo Clinic site refers to lab studies and clinical trials which "suggest" a positive effect or which "may" be useful.  The truth is that far more research is needed to substantiate the possibilities out there.

In any case, you can hedge your bets two different ways with the coated, elongated, liquid-filled pill that is **NATURE'S BOUNTY Calcium 1200mg Plus 1000 IU Vitamin D3**.  Most sources confirm that the 400 IUs given as the Daily Value for Vitamin D (200 less for kids, 200 more for oldtimers) is short of the maximum for effectiveness.

Most experts think that the maximum of Vitamin D (either D2 or D3) is about 2000 IUs daily.  Don't forget that we have D supplements in milk, bread and margarine *AND* as much as 1000 IUs in some of the latest multi-vitamins.

 

***PROVEN FOR SURE***

1)  The calcium-D connection for excellent calcium absorption.

2)  The need for sufficient (supplemental) Vitamin D if you live in a gloomy climate (like the Midwest, Sweden, the North Pole etc. in the winter.)

3)  Terrific and frequent two-fers on **NATURE'S BOUNTY Calcium 1200mg Plus 1000 IU Vitamin D3.**  (I do *like *this product!)

****

**FINAL NOTE:  **It *is* possible to overdose on D to a sickly result, so it doesn't hurt to do your homework.  Try ***www.mayoclinic.com/health/vitamin-d*** for more details.

Great vitamins

By 

from Bakersfield, CA

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

I recently found out about five months ago, that my vitamin d level was severely low. Of course at first i tried the cheapest vitamins i could find and my levels went down a hair but nothing significant. I always heard great things about natures bounty vitamins, so i decided to pay the extra money and try them out. I have been taking this product for over three months now and my vitamin d level is almost back to normal. I'm so amazed that one product from another could make such a significant difference in your health. I'm here to tell you that this brand is the best i have ever used and it's making my overall health better, day by day. I highly reccomend this product if you are suffering from lack of vitamin d, and calcium as well as other ailments. Natures bounty is simply worth the extra money to get your overall health back on track. Also these soft gels are wonderful as i have issues swallowing pills, and they are very tiny in size, so no problems swallowing these pills at all. I'll never switch from this brand, i'm a lifer now....

you need a Calclim enriched with D to help you absorb Calcium

Comments about Nature's Bounty Vitamin D3 1000 IU Softgels:

Nature's Bounty Calcium is critical for your bone health. As we age, our bone loses density and we become more prone to breaks. We should be getting as much calcium as possible to prevent bone damage as we age. Since vitamin D helps us absorbs calcium, a D-fortified Calcium vitamin is important.  I have taken calcium for a few years now and I love it. It combines a lot of important vitamins and is easy to take. The price for the product is good and anything that helps maintain good health is important to me. The U.S. FDA's Recommend Daily Allowance is 1000mg per day and doctors recommend that anyone with a calcium defficiency should take 2000mg a day. I have been using this product for almost two years now and have been happy with it. It is just as advertised. Many women neglect the important need for calcium. Osteporosis is a horrible and very easy to avoid disease for most women as long as they have a good source of Vitamin D fortefied calcium.
