Andrew Lessman's VITAMIN D3 5000 contains 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 in its most active and beneficial form - Cholecalciferol. Overwhelming scientific research has validated Vitamin D3 as the single most important vitamin to supplement. We also combine our Vitamin D with Calcium and Magnesium, because of their shared role in bone health. In fact, Calcium cannot be absorbed without adequate Vitamin D, thus making Vitamin D just as important as Calcium for bone health. That should be enough to encourage everyone to consume extra Vitamin D, but it is Vitamin D's other exciting benefits that are making headlines and have experts urgently seeking to raise the recommended intake of Vitamin D. The body can only produce small amounts of Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight (UV radiation), but reduced sun exposure and increased use of sunscreens, as well as the normal aging process, makes our own internal production of Vitamin D extremely limited and unreliable. Moreover, Vitamin D is not readily available in food - only present in small amounts in some fish and eggs. As a result, for over 30 years, ProCaps has always provided extra Vitamin D in all of our multivitamins and Calcium products. An enormous amount of recent research has confirmed the wisdom and necessity of consuming extra Vitamin D, and with our Vitamin D3 5000 you receive the benefits of the most active form of Vitamin D, plus a bonus of essential Calcium and Magnesium. 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 capsule daily – preferably with food containing a small amount of fat. You can choose to increase your daily intake based upon your personal requirements or as recommended by your health care provider.

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.
