Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that the body needs to maintain optimal health, but research shows that anywhere between 40-85% of Americans are vitamin D deficient.

People normally get this vitamin from sunlight, but this becomes more difficult during the winter months as people tend to spend more time indoors. The sun is also much lower in the sky during the winter, which means less time to generate vitamin D from sunlight.

Vitamin D is not readily available in most food sources, which is why many people don’t get enough of it. But don’t fret, you can easily receive your daily dose of vitamin D with Chief Originals® Vitamin D3 5000 IU (125 mcg) capsules, the world’s first glyphosate-tested vitamin D3 capsules derived from a renewable, natural source. Our vitamin D3 capsules are non-GMO and have been lab tested for heavy metals, microbiology and glyphosate. They contain no gluten, allergens, magnesium stearate, preservatives or other additives.

What is vitamin D and how does it benefit the body?

Vitamin D is a unique fat-soluble vitamin that does not act like most other vitamins, but instead acts more like a natural hormone. It’s often called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s naturally produced by the cholesterol in your skin cells when exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. These UVB rays interact with the cholesterol to provide energy for vitamin D synthesis.

Vitamin D plays a vital role in keeping your body strong and healthy. Some of the many health benefits it provides include supporting healthy bone, brain, and immune system functions; maintaining healthy, glowing skin; and uplifting your mood. 

There are two types of vitamin D: D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is generally regarded as superior to vitamin D2 because it is the form that most closely resembles the one your body naturally produces.

Vitamin D3, which you can get from food, dietary supplements, or through sun exposure, is more useful to the human body than vitamin D2.

How much vitamin D do you need?

The amount of vitamin D you need each day depends on your age. Generally, the older you get, the more vitamin D you will need. These are the current recommended amounts, in international units (IU):

Adults to age 70

600 IU (15 mcg)

Adults over 70

800 IU (20 mcg)

adult age70
adult over70

People at high risk of vitamin D deficiency may need more. 

Check with your healthcare provider about how much you need.

Signs of vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is frequently caused by several risk factors, such as spending less time outdoors, wearing long-sleeved clothing, using sunscreen, living in areas with little sunlight, and having a darker skin tone. Skin that has more melanin tends to block UVB rays, which facilitate the production of vitamin D in the skin. This is why people with darker skin pigmentation are at a higher risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D deficiency can manifest itself in many ways, most notably:

Suffering from chronic

bone and back pain

Vitamin D supports healthy bones by assisting with your body’s natural absorption of calcium. Signs of vitamin D deficiency may include lower back pain, but check with your naturopathic physician for a full diagnosis.

Frequently fatigued and tired

Low levels of vitamin D may suppress your energy levels and leave you with feelings of fatigue and exhaustion.

Feeling blue

Studies have shown that people with low levels of vitamin D are often at a much higher risk of feeling depressed.

Getting sick often

Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting a healthy immune system. Without enough vitamin D in the body, your immune system may not be able to function at its best.

Unusually slow healing of

minor cuts and wounds

Vitamin D is important for the maintenance of the body’s natural healing processes. Impaired wound healing may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency.

Muscle pain

Vitamin D is present in nerve cells called nociceptors that sense pain. Vitamin D deficiency can result in the nociceptors sending your body more pain signals.
