Unlike any other vitamin D3 supplement, ours provides this powerful health-promoter in a base of Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil.

Most supplement makers deliver this fat-soluble nutrient either in hard pills, which may not dissolve well, or in a base of soy or other vegetable oils.

Instead, we immerse 2000IU vitamin D3 in a base of our Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, naturally rich in omega-3s and astaxanthin ... wild salmon's powerfully healthful orange antioxidant pigment.

NSF International certifies that our Sockeye Salmon Oil provides the omega-3 levels stated on the label.

Vitamin D3 health benefits
Vitamin D is a hormone-like substance essential to human life.

And a fast-growing body of evidence indicates that optimal amounts may reduce major health risks and promote optimal health in key organs systems, and life stages*:

  • Bone strength
  • Immune system
  • Brain function
  • Fetal development
  • Neuromuscular function

Recommended intakes of vitamin D
The U.S. Recommended Daily Allowances for vitamin D are 400 IU from birth to 12 months, 800 IU for ages 1-70 years (and for pregnant and breastfeeding women) and 1000 IU for age 71-plus.

However, leading vitamin D researchers worldwide recommend consuming 1000 to 2000 IU per day, to ensure adequate blood levels*.

The official U.S. upper-intake limits are 1,000/day to 1,500 IU/day for infants under one year, 2,500 to 3,000 IU/day for children 1-8 years, and 4,000 IU/day for everyone aged 9 years or older, including pregnant or lactating women.

Each 300 mg softgel of our Vitamin D3 in Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil provides 2000 IU of Vitamin D3.

By providing so much vitamin D3 in a very small softgel, our supplement makes the experts' advice very easy to follow … and swallow!

Fatty fish are the best food sources
The richest known food sources of vitamin D3 are fatty fish — with wild Alaskan salmon ranking as the best sources.

Thanks to its plankton-heavy diet, wild sockeye salmon tops the list, averaging 680 IU per 3.5 oz/100gm serving.

The next richest seafood sources are silver and king salmon, albacore tuna (540 IU per 3.5oz serving), and sardines, and mackerel (230 to 350 IUs per 3.5 oz serving).

So, while fatty fish offer more vitamin D3 than any other foods, even folks who enjoy them frequently need supplemental amounts to reliably ensure that they get the 1,000 IUs per day that experts recommend.

Should I still take an omega-3 supplement?
This depends on your intake of omega-3s from seafood. Health authorities worldwide recommend taking 250-500 mg of omega-3s (EPA + DHA) per day.

These unique attributes make Vital Choice Sockeye Salmon Oil a rare, powerfully health-promoting omega-3 supplement. 

The U.S. FDA has approved two qualified health claims regarding omega-3 EPA and DHA:

  • Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Consuming EPA and DHA combined may reduce blood pressure and reduce the risk of hypertension, a risk factor for CHD (coronary heart disease).  However, FDA has concluded that the evidence is inconsistent and inconclusive.

The long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) that abound only in seafood (especially fatty fish) – and in supplemental fish and krill oils – are essential to human life and support optimal health in key organs, systems, and life stages*:

  • Aging
  • Vision
  • Metabolism
  • Inflammation
  • Cardiovascular
  • Fetal development
  • Skin, hair, and nails
  • Joints and movement
  • Cognition (thinking), attention, mood, and memory

Where do we get our vitamin D?
Like virtually all supplemental vitamin D3, ours is extracted from lanolin – a safe, waxy natural substance from wool that's widely used in moisturizers and lip balms.

The U.S. recommended daily allowances (RDAs) for vitamin D are 200 IU (birth to age 50), 400 IU (age 51-70) and 600 IU (age 71-plus). Substantial peer-reviewed evidence supports leading researchers' recommendations that the U.S. Institute of Medicine raise the U.S. RDAs substantially. To help ensure optimal health, most researchers involved in vitamin D studies recommend minimum blood levels ranging from 90 to 120 nmol/L (36 to 48 ng/mL),and normal human blood levels* of vitamin D extend above 200 nmol/L (80 ng/mL). Most experts say that the evidence supports a daily intake of at least 1,000 IU via food and supplements, and most prefer an intake of 2,000 IU to 4,000 IU per day*. This intake level applies to all people, but is especially advised for darker skinned people who spend less than 30 minutes per day in strong sunlight. Darker skinned people, whose greater amount of skin pigment blocks the UV rays that make vitamin D, need more sun exposure*.The official upper intake limit is now 2,000 IU per day. However, vitamin D intake is proven safe* at a daily intake level of 10,000 IU ... which is 25 times the current RDA for adults 51 or older (400 IU). You will find more information in an article by vitamin D researcher professor Edward Giovannucci, M.D., Sc.D., of Harvard University's School of Public Health. *Please Note: These statements have not been evaluated by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
