Wellesse Vitamin D3 Liquid 1000 IU Label Information:
Why should I take Vitamin D3?
New research has revealed that as many as 50% of Americans are not getting enough vitamin D. It is very difficult to get enough of this important vitamin from diet alone unless you eat a lot of fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel or herring or take cod liver oil. Vitamin D plays many crucial roles in our bodies: it helps promote calcium absorption for bone and teeth health and helps regulate white blood cells for immune system support. Absorbing enough vitamin D from sun alone may be difficult especially if you have darker skin, are older, live in a northern climate, wear sunscreen, work or stay indoors, are obese, or have trouble absorbing fats. People who have a healthy lifestyle, but avoid or limit their dairy intake (such as vegetarians) may also not be getting enough vitamin D.
What is the better form of vitamin D?
D3 is the preferable form over D2 because of its high level of biologic activity. D3 is the naturally occurring form of vitamin D that is made when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
Is it safe for infants and children under 4?
Before giving a vitamin D supplement to your child, consult your pediatrician. Because a mother's milk may not have enough vitamin D, infants who are exclusively breast fed may need to supplement with vitamin D. Nursing mothers should ask their doctor how much vitamin D they need to take. Many children who are protected with sunscreen while outdoors may not be making enough Vitamin D through their skin. The American Academy of Pediatrics, AAP, recently increased their recommendation from 200 IU to 400 IU of vitamin D daily for infants, children and adolescents.
What if I take other supplements with vitamin D in it already? How much can I have per day?
If you are taking other supplements containing vitamin D, you will need to adjust the dosage accordingly to get the right amount. It is best to check with your doctor to find out how much vitamin D you need each day. According to Office of Dietary Supplements, the tolerable upper level for Vitamin D (UL) is currently set at 2,000 IU for ages one and up, but studies have shown that an adult would need to take more than 10,000 IU per day over an extended period of time for toxicity to occur. (Source: Alternative Medicine Review - Use of Vitamin D in Clinical Practice) If you are pregnant or lactating or have a known medical condition and/or are taking medications you should consult with a healthcare practitioner before taking dietary supplements.
Is it good for children?
Wellesse Vitamin D3 liquid is formulated for the whole family, ages 4 and up. It may be a great supplement alternative for children who do not go outside often, do not eat or drink dairy, or who wear sunscreen when outdoors.
I have heard of a test for vitamin D levels in my body, what is it and when should I get tested?
To determine if you have enough vitamin D, a doctor will give you a blood calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D) test. The optimal level of blood calcidiol is 35 to 55 ng/mL (nanograms per milliliter). Some medical scientists believe that this level should be slightly higher.
What are possible symptoms of low vitamin D levels?
Muscular weakness, a feeling of heaviness in the legs, chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, depression, or easy tiring may be symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a factor in the pathology of many chronic illnesses.
Why does the Wellesse Vitamin D3 liquid change color over time?
Wellesse Vitamin D3 is made with natural colors that can change over time. You may see your product change from light purple to a golden apple juice color. This change does not affect product quality, potency or purity.
What is cellulose?
Cellulose is a stabilizing and emulsifying agent. It is the component of plant cell walls that gives them rigidity. When used in a liquid, it acts as a thickener and gives the product "body". It is refined from wood pulp.
Are there any animal products in Wellesse Vitamin D?
No, however, vitamin D is derived from the lanolin found in sheep's wool.

"As a 74 year old woman, I've been Vitamin D deficient for many years. Have tried numerous over the counter and prescription pills, only to develop severe stomach issues. Then found on the internet Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3. Started taking it daily for 2 years and no stomach issues! My doctor saw an improvement on every 6 month blood test. My most recent blood test, the doctor noted in my chart incredible results. I am in normal range! He told me to continue with the Wellesse Vitamin D3. I call it my liquid gold. Thank you Wellesse!"
"I have enjoyed the health benefits of Wellesse Vitamin D3 for several years. During that time I was without the product and my energy level dropped to almost zero. I was able to again find the product and after only two days my energy level returned. I don't ever want to be without this product again. The price is spot on, the flavor is just right and I hope to find it on the shelves of Costco warehouses always."
"I love Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3 because my wife, who is bedridden and very seldom can leave the house for the sun's benefits, can get the vitamins her body needs to function from day to day. Since my wife has been using Wellesse Vitamin D3 she has felt better and her complexion has changed for the better. I thank you very much for this great product!"
"I bought the Wellesse Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM when I saw it advertised. The results are wonderful. When I saw the Vitamin D3 I began to use this. Your product is more efficient and easier to use than tablet or capsules. I am 79 years old."
"Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3 is the one vitamin your body does not store and it is so important to our bones and immune system. My husband has blood sugar issues so he needs it for his immune system and I need it for my bones. But also because it is in liquid form, making it easy to take and tastes so good. And the fact it only takes 2 teaspoons a day and absorbs into our bodies quickly."
"I love the Liquid Vitamin D3, I just replenished my supply. I like it because I've noticed that pills have started really bothering my stomach. The vitamin D I was taking was not only a really large pill, but made my stomach upset. Having the liquid is much easier, and I don't have any tummy problems."
"Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3 is like liquid gold! I've been taking the liquid Vitamin D3 for about 6 months and I feel a difference in my energy level. I have a lot of muscle discomfort and loss of strength and movement and am always struggling with being tired (and at times cranky) but, since I have been taking the liquid Vitamin D3, I have noticed that I have more energy to get things done and that I tire less quickly - my husband says I'm less cranky too. I am excited to see how taking the liquid Vitamin D3 will help during the upcoming dark winter months when I don't get enough sun. It tastes great and it's easy to take, I like it and my body likes it."
"Wellesse Liquid Vitamin D3 is perfect for me and my family. It is good tasting and easy to use. In fact, my five year old often reminds ME when it's time for her daily dose. How often does that happen?"
