Andrew Lessman's VITAMIN D3 1000 PLUS CALCIUM INTENSIVE CARE is a mild all-natural formula designed to address the special requirements of virtually all individuals, particularly women, to consume extra Vitamin D3 and Calcium. This formula begins with 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3, which has recently been recognized as perhaps the most important single vitamin to supplement separately. We then combine our Vitamin D3 1000 with the exceptionally mild and soluble sources of Calcium found in our unique Calcium Intensive Care. Vitamin D has long been recognized for its essential role in the maintenance of all bone and skeletal tissues, since without Vitamin D, Calcium cannot be absorbed and utilized by the body. Although Calcium's role in bone health is unquestioned, the benefits of Calcium cannot be realized without adequate levels of Vitamin D, making Vitamin D just as essential as Calcium in any bone health regime. Vitamin D's role in supporting the health of other body systems has recently made headlines in newspapers and the medical literature and experts now seek to substantially raise the recommended levels of Vitamin D. The body can manufacture limited amounts of Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight (via its damaging UV radiation); however, the aging process combined with our reduced exposure to sunlight and increased use of sunscreens makes our body's production of Vitamin D inadequate and unreliable at best. Making matters worse is the fact that Vitamin D is not abundant in food, and is only present in very limited quantities in some fish and eggs. Recognizing this, Andrew Lessman has always given special attention to Vitamin D3, providing higher levels than found in the leading multivitamins, while also including Vitamin D3 in all his Calcium and bone health products for over 30 years. Now, with our Vitamin D3 1000 plus Calcium Intensive Care you get 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3 combined with the special ingredients present in our Calcium Intensive Care. Best of all, this formula is extremely economical and guaranteed gentle even to the most sensitive stomachs. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Consume one, two or more capsules daily or as recommended by a health care professional. For best results, take this product with food containing a small amount of fat or oil. As with any dietary supplement, this product is most effective as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle, along with a daily multi-vitamin-mineral formula.

A Light Bulb Went Off
After experiencing a Sudden Death episode, I decided I needed to improve my health. On the advice of my neighbor, your best advocate, I started to watch and listen about your vitamins and supplements. When you discussed low Vit. D levels, A Light Bulb Went Off, and I decided to have my checked. Well, it was 10.5 very low. My doctor started me on 5,000 IU per day and I decided to take yours. Now, 2 years later, my level is 55.0. What a difference and I feel so much better, Most doctors do not discuss vitamins or supplements. We must educate ourselves. Please continue to educate and enlighten us because we hear you and it makes sense. They are the best and you get your moneys worth. Thanks again Judy K.

INCREDIBLE MIRACLE WORKER!
During a visit with my doctor, it was discovered I was so vitamin d deficient I had none. (along with every other hormone / vitamins)
My doctor prescribed 20,000 mg a day hoping this would help. Instead of using the prescription, I went to the website and ordered all of vitamins through ProCaps. Not only did it help, but the doctor wanted to know what I was using because he was so impressed with how my body reacted in such a short amount of time. I am now down to taking one capsules a week and still feel great, along with the levels being normal and stable. (I get my levels tested every three months) This product is amazing and for the price, a miracle worker. Who knew vitamin D plays such an important part to our overall health.

Great product but...
I have taken your D for years now. I started out in single numbers.At my last Doctor yearly physical she did my D level count. My level was 100. She told me to stop them until our next visit. She told me my number was too high. For now, I stopped them, been three months now. When retests my level, I look forward to taking them again. I take your Calcium Magnesium too,so stopped both temporarily. It seems to work too good for my body. I am petite, thin, so I need to figure out my daily requirements. I know they certainly work, excellent product. Thank you for making them , and educating people at the same time.

This Isn't Optional!
I ordered Vitamin D before and took it sporadically because I had never had the blood test done and was fairly certain I was not deficient as my blood levels for everything else have always been fine. I really didn't want to take something I didn't need but since I didn't take it regularly, knew it wouldn't hurt me. My knees had been bothering me for quite a while and doctor looked for drug interactions, thyroid and I asked about rheumatoid arthritis since that runs in my family. Well, I went on my own (through Direct Labs, thanks Andrew) and found out today my Vitamin D level is 21.5. I have called the doctor for his guidance to get me back up to what it should be. PEOPLE, get your Vitamin D level checked! It can cause all sorts of problems if you are deficient. I live in sunny Texas and never thought this would be me. Of course I will be 60 in a few weeks and age is a factor also. Thanks for your guidance Andrew, I would have never known about all this if not for you.
