Vitamin D is a crucial nutrient that your body needs to maintain optimal overall health. It plays a vital role in keeping your body strong and healthy and provides numerous health benefits, including supporting healthy brain, heart and immune functions, maintaining healthy skin and bones and even uplifting your mood.

However, a review from the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology states that roughly 35% of American adults are vitamin D deficient. Some risk factors that can lead to vitamin D deficiency include spending less time outdoors, living in areas with little sunlight and using sunscreen. The recent unlawful lockdowns worldwide have also exacerbated vitamin D deficiency around the world.

That's why the Health Ranger Store is here to help you ensure adequate daily intake of vitamin D with our Chief Originals® Vitamin D3 5000 IU Vegetarian Capsules. Our lab-verified vitamin D3 capsules are naturally derived from high-quality sheep's wool, which means they are derived from a renewable natural source. Our vegetarian vitamin D3 capsules contain no GMOs and are thoroughly lab tested for heavy metals, microbiology and glyphosate.

Vitamin D3: The superior form of vitamin D**

Vitamin D is a unique, fat-soluble nutrient that the body needs in order to function normally. While it is considered a vitamin, it is actually a hormone. More specifically, when you consume vitamin D, your liver and kidneys transform it into its active hormone form. Sometimes called the "sunshine vitamin," vitamin D is also naturally produced by your body using cholesterol when your skin is exposed to ultraviolet B rays (UVB) from the sun. UVB rays interact with the cholesterol in your skin cells to provide energy for vitamin D synthesis.

The two most common types of vitamin D are D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol). While they are both effectively absorbed into your blood stream, vitamin D3 is generally regarded as superior to vitamin D2 because it is the form that most closely resembles the one your body produces. Vitamin D3 is also more efficiently metabolized by your liver.

The only downside is that, unlike vitamin D2, vitamin D3 is primarily found in animal-sourced foods, which can make it difficult for those following a vegetarian diet to meet their daily vitamin D needs. Fortunately, Chief Originals® Vitamin D3 5000 IU Vegetarian Capsules are sourced from sheep's wool, which makes them the perfect vegetarian option for vitamin D supplements.

What are the amazing health benefits of vitamin D3?**

Supports healthy brain function

Promotes healthy immune function

Supports healthy heart function

Promotes the growth of healthy skin

Vitamin D acts as a hormone that supports healthy brain function. According to a study that appeared in the Archives of Internal Medicine, having sufficient levels of vitamin D is important for optimal cognitive health and function.

A study that was published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology suggested that your body needs enough vitamin D every day in order for your immune system to work properly and fend off external threats.

A study that appeared in the journal Circulation indicated that having healthy levels of vitamin D in your body is key to supporting healthy cardiovascular function. Consuming the recommended daily intake of vitamin D also helps your body maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range.

When vitamin D is turned into its active hormone form, calcitriol, it can help maintain healthy, glowing skin. According to a study from the Journal of Advanced Research, vitamin D plays a role in the proper functioning of nearly every type of tissue in your body, including your skin.

respiratory function

healthy bones

According to a study that was published in the journal Respirology, having adequate levels of vitamin D is associated with healthy lung and respiratory functions.

Vitamin D supports your body’s natural ability to absorb calcium and phosphorus -- both of which are minerals necessary for the proper growth and development of strong bones and teeth.

Vitamin D is converted into calcitriol in your kidneys, allowing it to support healthy kidney functions, as well as promote good overall health.

Supplementing with vitamin D can have a positive effect on your mood.

  • Vitamin D3 is 87% more usable to the human body

How much vitamin D does your body need?**

Vitamin D is not readily available in most food sources, which is why many people don’t get enough of it. The amount of vitamin D you need each day depends on your age. Generally, the older you get, the more vitamin D you will need. These are the current recommended amounts in international units (IU):

Adults until the age of 70

– 600 IU (15 mcg)

Adults over 70

– 800 IU (20 mcg)

People at high risk of vitamin D deficiency may need more. Check with your healthcare provider about how much you need.

Signs of vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency can manifest itself in several ways. These include:




Low levels of vitamin D may suppress your energy levels and leave you feeling constantly fatigued or exhausted.

Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting a healthy immune system. Without sufficient vitamin D, your immune system may not be able to function at its best.

Vitamin D supports healthy bones by assisting with your body’s absorption of calcium. Signs of vitamin D deficiency may include lower back pain, so check with your naturopathic physician for a full diagnosis.



A study that appeared in the Journal of Internal Medicine reported that people with low levels of vitamin D have a high risk of depression. 

Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting the body’s natural healing processes. Slow wound healing may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency.
