Keep your bones strong and support your overall health with a daily dose of Vitamin D 500 because many scientists now recommend that Vitamin D be supplemented at higher levels than previously suggested. Vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin,” is actually a key regulatory hormone that is crucial to the proper functioning of your body. Without adequate vitamin D, your body would not retain enough calcium, which is essential to bone support. It also sustains cell growth, neuromuscular and immune functions and inflammatory support.
