Viva Naturals High-Potency Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 360 Softgels



Features

BOOSTS YOUR DAILY DOSE - It can be tough to get enough vitamin D through diet alone. And, while wearing sunscreen and limiting sun exposure is a good thing, you may not be getting as much vitamin D from the sunshine as you may think. Our easy-to-swallow softgels are an easy way to get a healthy daily dose.*
MAINTAINS HEALTHY BONES, TEETH, AND MUSCLE FUNCTION* - Vitamin D is also important because it helps your body absorb calcium, a mineral essential for healthy bones and teeth.* It's even been shown to maintain healthy muscle function.*
PROVIDES IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT* - Like vitamin C, vitamin D is also known to help keep aspects of your immune system functioning well, which is your body's first line of defence.*
ABSORBS EASILY* - Your body produces vitamin D3 when your skin is exposed to sunshine, so supplementing with Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 is a natural choice to ensure you're getting a vitamin D3 supplement that your body can easily absorb.*
PREMIUM QUALITY & PURITY - Proudly made in the USA in GMP-compliant facilities, Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 delivers the highest quality non-GMO ingredients, free of soy, gluten, artificial colors, and preservatives.


Description

For many of us, long days spent indoors under the harsh glow of artificial light makes it hard to get enough vitamin D (it is the "sunshine vitamin" after all.) Of course wearing sunscreen and limiting sun exposure is a good thing, you may not be getting as much vitamin D from the sunshine as you may think. While we can get some through the foods we eat, research has shown that our diets may not give us adequate amounts. And, just like our energy, our levels of vitamin D decline with age. Thankfully, Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 5,000 IU softgels are a simple and effective way to boost your daily dose, helping to support strong bones, teeth, muscles and immune system.*

Why choose Viva Naturals Vitamin D3?

Excellent Source of Vitamin D3
With just one small, easy-to-swallow softgel a day, you get a healthy 5,000 IU dose of this essential vitamin, which is over and above other capsules and tablets. Perfect to help ensure you're getting as much as you need.*

Easy to Absorb
Vitamin D comes in two forms: D2 & D3. Vitamin D3 is the form your body makes when exposed to the sun, mimicking the effects of natural sunlight, and is widely known to be the most active and easily absorbed form.*

Made with Organic Coconut Oil
Unlike some products that use low-quality soybean or olive oil, Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 is suspended in pure organic, non-GMO coconut oil, whose natural MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) improve its absorption.*

Made in the USA with No Artificial Colors or Preservatives
Proudly made in the USA in GMP-compliant facilities, Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 delivers the highest quality non-GMO ingredients, free of soy, gluten, artificial colors, and preservatives.

Excellent & Cost-effective

5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff 💉 & Jeff's Wife 💅 on May 3, 2017
After having beat cancer twice, my doctor suggested I take additional D3 since my body doesn't process things like it used to. I'm also immunosuppressed since I lost a kidney 2 years ago due to transitional cell carcinoma. I was hesitant because I try to take as few medications as I can. If cancer hasn't killed me yet, I don't want the pharmaceutical company to be first.

Generally, the extra Vitamin D in a multivitamin is sufficient. However, if you have bone weakness, bone malformation, or abnormal metabolism of calcium, you should get your levels checked by your doctor. Furthermore, if you have kidney disease or abnormalities of the enzyme that converts 25-hydroxyvitamin D to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D your doctor probably already has you on extra doses of Vitamin D.

By trade I am a practicing ER/Trauma nurse with 20 years experience. I thought I knew my way around vitamins and minerals. Well, labdoor.com, proved me wrong. They provide excellent info on the supplements that the FDA doesn't regulate.

First, and foremost, I wanted the best inert ingredients as well as being cost effective. Viva uses organic coconut oil and is only 4 cents/capsule for a year's worth of supplements. Even with an organic oil there are issues with solidifying, much the same as honey. After reading the reviews and seeing the pics, I asked the company and they belayed my fears. The efficacy is not affected, they just look a little funky.

It's also important to note that any vitamin or mineral supplement must be taken on a full stomach. They need to bind to something so they can be processed in the colon. A couple spoonfuls of yoghurt doesn't count. Take the after a good meal.

All-in-all an excellent product from a top-notch company. I was very impressed with their lab facilities and how rigorous their lab controls are. Customer service is quick and professional.
white spots

4.0 out of 5.0 by Lisi M on July 24, 2017
I don't trust this product because some of the pills have cloudy white spots... very visible. Can anyone explain what that is?

The company has responded quickly to my concern and it makes sense that the coconut oil would react to temperature changes.
Poor absorption

1.0 out of 5.0 by Don Pisto on April 3, 2018
I have been taking these for over a year and I was always confident they were effective but recent blood tests revealed these had little to no effect in my case. Others very well may be having great results with these, but blood testing should be done to confirm. In my case, I began taking these last year when an annual physical flagged low D3 blood levels of 24ng/mL so I immediately started taking these. 5000IU is a hefty dose, and I look forward to my next blood test to see the results but they only rose about 10% to 29ng/mL. My wife went through a similar experience and began taking liquid drops and in 3 months her blood levels went from 30ng/mL to 70ng/mL. I will now give the drops a try. In mine and my wife's case, this was an ineffective product, validated by blood testing, and maybe our bodies just don't respond well to it. I hope it works for most people though.
Tiny but potent

5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Wilson on March 31, 2017
These are very small. Easy to take. They don't have any soy or other additives except coconut oil and the gelatin for the gel cap. I'm assuming they actually contain what it claims. I have been taking 5,000 IU of vitamin D for years and seldom get sick.

Vitamin D is really a hormone. You produce it when in sunlight. Nobody north of Washington DC produces enough during the winter months. If you are out in the sun all day in the summer you will produce about 10,000 IU of D. While 400 IU/day may be enough for bone health it takes much more for immune function. I'm a small person and 5,000 IU of D/day gives me a blood level of 60. This is right were I want it.
Highly recommend

5.0 out of 5.0 by Chelea L. Holdt on June 1, 2016
I have left other reviews but wanted to add that I recently had my D levels checked and they were actually above more in an optimal range. They have never been this high, especially for me, an Oregonian. I have had to take the prescription of 50,000 UI in the past to get my levels up to even a normal range. The supplementation of D has worked better than I had hoped.
Best decision ever

5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazon Customer on August 18, 2016
I was told by my doctor that I was vitamin D deficient the deficiency was 13 which was very low. I first started taking Nature's made vitamin D3 1000 IU's everyday but I wasn't feeling any better. I was surprised that with my deficiency being so low that my doctor didn't prescribe something for me with a higher IU that, I could pick up at the pharmacy. So I started to research vitamin D deficiency and vitamins. I realized that not all vitamins are actually made in the United States and that was a concern for me. I came across Viva labs. I decided to try it and up the IU's to 5,000 a day. I started to see results almost immediately. I'm glad that I took the time to research and that I actually found a vitamin that I can truly say it's going to give you the results that you need to start feeling better.
I was pretty impressed when I got my blood work back

4.0 out of 5.0 by Joy Lile on September 8, 2016
I was surprised about how small these little gel caps are, they seemed too tiny to hold 5,000 IU. But in the past 2 years I've been able to increase my D levels from the "insufficient" to "healthy" range! I've been taking these about 6 months, before that I was taking about 800-1600 IU of the non-cholecalciferol type (which are much larger gel caps). I was pretty impressed when I got my blood work back. I gave it 4 stars because I'm not sure how much was the supplement and how much was sun exposure, diet, etc. - but at such a low price, it seems like little risk, so if you're deficient you might as well try it!
Great Pill Size - Easy to Swallow

4.0 out of 5.0 by Leilani Phoenix on October 3, 2016
Let me tell you the reasons I love these D3's
- The size of the pill is great. Generally anything in this gel cap form is easy for me to swallow but I sometimes swallow several pills at the same time SO the fact that its smaller than the size of an eraser is awesome
- The IU count is good
- No weird taste or gastrointestinal distress

As for effect, its pretty much personal opinion. Despite living in California, I don't worship the sun without sunscreen on. I am sure my dermatologist would appreciate the additional co-pays but I think I'll settle for a supplement every once in a while. I don't take it every day. Maybe once a week or so just make sure I maintain a healthy level.
Product made with good ingredience and the company has independent lab testing, made in the USA.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazon Customer on October 28, 2017
It is hard to write a review on a vitamin supplement based on performance because you do not directly feel the benefits of most, at least in a short term period. We all know that through medical research that vitamin D3 provides stronger bones through generating calcium and our lack of available sunshine which is one good way to absorb D3. The reason for the 5 star rating is based on two things; one the use of coconut oil as a medium which I know is good both topically and ingested ; two the Viva Company has very good independent lab testing results with manufacturing in the USA under FDA/GMP compliance. We may not be able to actually feel the immediate affects of any vitamin D3 product we use, but knowing it is produced by a well certified company using good ingredients makes me have more confidence in using this product.
Did not work for me like other brand of Vitamin D

1.0 out of 5.0 by Dylan Brewer on August 4, 2017
I have been taking vitamin D3 for years from the simple "Nature Made" brand. I decided to switch to this brand because it was cheaper and looked higher quality; however, this brand simply does not work. I do not know why, but when taking the Viva Naturals D3 the fatigue I feel from vitamin D deficiency does not go away. When I switched back to the other brand my fatigue was almost instantly gone. Maybe this is unique to me, but Viva Naturals just did not cut it for me.
