Nordic Naturals® Introduces High-Potency Vitamin D3 5000
Watsonville, CA (October 29, 2014) Leading supplement company Nordic Naturals announces the launch of Vitamin D3 5000. The premium, high-potency product delivers 5000 I.U. of vitamin D in each soft gel and is suitable for clinical applications aimed at helping to correct or avoid vitamin D deficiency.
“Vitamin D3 5000 will fast-track support, particularly for patients who don’t get sufficient vitamin D through diet or sun exposure,” said Joar Opheim, Nordic Naturals CEO and Founder. “It’s an excellent choice for people at increased risk of deficiency, and also makes a perfect companion product to any of our omega-3s.”
While many of the company’s omega-3 fish oil products contain added Vitamin D, Nordic Naturals began offering stand-alone vitamin D products several years ago in response to the scientific community’s determination that people worldwide are deficient in it.Nordic Naturals only offers products containing cholecalciferol, the natural form of vitamin D that the human body makes from sunlight. Experts agree this form is better absorbed and more effectively utilized.
Research shows that vitamin D performs a variety of functions in optimizing health. It is best known for its role in building and maintaining strong bones by improving the body’s absorption of the minerals calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D also helps regulate the immune system, mood, and sleep rhythms, and plays key roles in the life cycle of human cells.
In addition to Vitamin D3 5000, the company’s professional portfolio also includes two products that offer 1000 I.U. per serving—Vitamin D3 soft gels and wild-berry flavored Vitamin D3 Gummies.
Based in Watsonville, CA, Nordic Naturals is committed to delivering the world’s safest, most effective omega oils to help further its mission of correcting the global omega-3 deficiency. Distributing to more than 35 countries, Nordic Naturals offers over 200 products in a variety of flavors and formulations for adults, kids, athletes, and pets. As the number one fish oil in the United States, Nordic Naturals has revolutionized omega-3s, pioneering a new definition of fish oil quality as it relates to purity, freshness, taste, and dosage.
