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 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.
Our vitamin D3 supplements are endorsed by Professor Michael Holick, M.D., Ph.D., the world-renowned vitamin D researcher based at Boston University.
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 200 IU (birth to age 50), 400 IU (age 51-70) and 600 IU (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 provide vitamin D3 … but not quite enough
The best known food sources of vitamin D3 by far are fatty fish—with albacore tuna (540 IU per 3.5oz/100gm serving) and wild Alaskan salmon ranking as the richest.
Thanks to its plankton-heavy diet, wild sockeye salmon tops the list, averaging 680 IU per 3.5 oz serving.
The next richest seafood sources are silver and king salmon, 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.
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.

Adults can take one softgel daily, preferably with a meal, or as recommended by a healthcare professional. Recommended intake of vitamin D
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).
