D-Sorb™ by Douglas Laboratories is a caplique® containing 12,500 IU of vitamin D3 in a patented, naturally self-assembling nano-colloid system for enhanced absorption.
Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body.
Though classified as a vitamin, vitamin D is actually a key regulatory hormone for calcium and bone metabolism. Adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy calcium plasma levels.
Besides bone support, vitamin D has many other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function and inflammatory support.
Supplemental vitamin D is available in 2 distinct forms: synthetic ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and natural cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).
Despite an emerging body of evidence suggesting greater bioefficacy of vitamin D3, the form of vitamin D used in pharmaceutical prescriptions in North America is vitamin D2.
Clinical studies show vitamin D2 potency is less than one third that of vitamin D3 and has a shorter duration of activity.
For example, 50,000 IU of vitamin D2 used pharmaceutically may be similar to a dose of 15,000 IU of vitamin D3 used supplementally.
Therefore, vitamin D2 should not be considered equivalent to vitamin D3 based on differences in their efficacy at raising serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, reduced binding of vitamin D2 metabolites to vitamin D binding protein in plasma, and distinct differences in metabolism.
Since vitamin D is fat-soluble, it may be difficult for one to adequately absorb and utilize it, especially for those individuals with fat malabsorption. D-Sorb™ is unique among vitamin D products because it utilizes the patented VESIsorb® technology to deliver vitamin D3 and therefore enhance absorption.
When mixed with an aqueous system, this patented technology results in the formation of a nano-colloid containing solubilized vitamin D. This colloid delivery system contains a highly uniform distribution of droplets that are less than 100 nm in diameter. The size and structure of these droplets allow for enhanced solubility and absorption of vitamin D.
D-Sorb™ may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily vitamin intake with a high potency, absorbable form of vitamin D.
One caplique® capsule daily or as directed by your healthcare professional.
No adverse side effects have been reported.
Note: People consuming more than 2,000 IU per day should have their vitamin D blood levels monitored by a healthcare professional.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children.
