Product Details

  • Supports bone health plus immune and cardiovascular wellness
  • Promotes calcium absorption in the body
  • Most biologically active form of vitamin D

Do you get enough of the powerhouse Sunshine Vitamin? The body manufactures some vitamin D on its own when it is exposed to sunlight—hence the nickname—but for people living in the northern latitudes where wintertime sun exposure is limited, the body's natural vitamin D production may not be enough. Additionally, our ability to produce vitamin D diminishes with age. According to the National Institutes of Health, most people in the United States consume less than recommended amounts of vitamin D.

Swanson High Potency Vitamin D3 capsules tackle this problem by supplying an impressive 25 mcg (1,000 IU) of vitamin D3, the most biologically active type of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is an essential bone supporting nutrient that works to absorb calcium efficiently in the body. Adequate amounts of vitamin D are essential for bone, muscle, brain and heart health, as well as dental health and the immune system. Optimal levels of vitamin D are associated with improved muscle strength and blood pressure maintenance. Help ensure you’re getting enough of this important nutrient with Swanson High Potency Vitamin D3.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why are some vitamin D products measured in IU while others are in mcg?

Due to changes in FDA labeling guidelines, vitamin D amounts must now be listed in micrograms (mcg) on supplement facts and nutrition labels instead of international units (IU). Although these new guidelines were issued in 2016, updates weren't required until June 2020.

At Swanson, we began updating our labels in early 2017. You will see a mixture of both IU and mcg as our national brand partners complete this process.

Q: Did my vitamin D supplement change?

A: You may have noticed a change in the daily value percentage on your favorite vitamin D product, but that doesn't mean your product changed. The FDA increased the recommended daily intake (RDA) of vitamin D, which means the same product with the same ingredient amounts fulfills a lower percentage of the RDA than it prior to the change.

Q: How much vitamin D do I need each day?

In 2016, the Food and Nutrition Board increased the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin D for most adults from 10 mcg (400 IU) to 15 mcg (600 IU) per day, and 20 mcg (800 IU) for ages 70+.

Some doctors and nutritionists recommend higher daily vitamin D intakes, especially for those at risk for having low levels. The Vitamin D Council, an organization dedicated to raising awareness about vitamin D, recommends average adults supplement with 125 mcg (5,000 IU) of vitamin D daily. Talk with your doctor about your individual needs.

For more information about these changes, see Nutrition Label Updates: Important Changes to Sugar, Fiber, Vitamin D & More.

Q: Why are these considered dry? 

A: They are considered dry because the vitamin D-3 is not suspended in a liquid oil; rather, it is in a dry powder inside the capsule.

Q: Is the Vitamin D-3 in this supplement sourced from fish or lanolin? 

A: It is from lanolin.
