Natures True Medicine Vitamin D3 (review)

My thoughts on the Natures Ture Medicine Vitamin D3, 2000 Supplement

For a review of a product, usually I use it awhile and then tell you how I like or dislike it. With a vitamin supplement, it would take a very long time to know enough about the product to actually be able to tell you whether or not it is effective and what I think about it. So this review will focus on roughly a two-week consumption of the Natures True Medicine Vitamin D3, how I perceive this product, and what it means to me personally.

Several years ago, my primary care physician said I should take Vitamin D supplement. I took them awhile and then decided, "Enough! I'm not taking stuff I don't actually need. I eat well!" So I stopped.

Then a month or so ago, I read my medical record and saw that I actually had a vitamin D deficiency! I didn't know that before when my kind doctor said I should take the vitamin. Anyway, I got some generic drugstore vitamin D3 supplements, 1,000, and started taking them.

And then I had the opportunity to try the Natures True Medicine Vitamin D3, 2000 units, supplement. Once I started reading about the Natures True Medicine Vitamin D3 I realized that not all supplements are "created equal."

When my jar of Natures True Vitamin D3 arrived, I switched to them. Now they "look" pretty much the same. The have no taste - which I love, and so does my digestive system. The 2,000 units are double what I previously took, (1,000).

I feel confident about using these capsules and this brand. Is it better? I really don't know but I truly feel this is doing better "for me" toward correcting my vitamin D deficiency!

And here is some information I gleaned from the internet about problems with having a vitamin D deficiency: An interesting article from the Huffington Post, The Vitamin Council ,and of course there is always Wickapedia.

Product Description (provided by company)

Vitamin D3 is a vitamin that is critical to keeping both phosphorus and calcium in balance and being used properly. Dr. Oz suggests that Vitamin D3 is the second most important vitamin you can take. Many people do not get adequate vitamin D3 because they do not spend enough time in the sun. Since this vitamin is important, you want to look into vitamin D3 supplements to ensure that you are getting enough and getting the right ingredients. It's especially critiwal that your vitamin d3 does not contain the harmful  and very toxic Magnesium Stearate filler.

Anthony Norman, MD, in a recent article in Endocrine Today, stated "it is now widely appreciated by vitamin D scientists that 50% of people in North America and Western Europe are vitamin D insufficient. Given that two-thirds of the people are vitamin D-insufficient or deficient. It is clear that merely eating vitamin D-rich foods is not adequate to solve the problem for most adults."

How Much Vitamin D3 Do You Need? - Adult men and women ages 19 to 69 need to get 600 IUs each day and when 70 and over, you need 800 IUs each day, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements. This is only for those with solid levels of this vitamin which a large majority of people do not have.
