PRODUCT DETAILS

Description How to Use
 
Andrew Lessman’s VITAMIN D3 5000 contains 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 in its most active and beneficial form - Cholecalciferol. Overwhelming scientific research has validated Vitamin D3 as the single most important vitamin to supplement. We also combine our Vitamin D with Calcium and Magnesium, because of their shared role in bone health. In fact, Calcium cannot be absorbed without adequate Vitamin D, thus making Vitamin D just as important as Calcium for bone health. That should be enough to encourage everyone to consume extra Vitamin D, but it is Vitamin D’s other exciting benefits that are making headlines and have experts urgently seeking to raise the recommended intake of Vitamin D. The body can only produce small amounts of Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight (UV radiation), but reduced sun exposure and increased use of sunscreens, as well as the normal aging process, makes our own internal production of Vitamin D extremely limited and unreliable. Moreover, Vitamin D is not readily available in food - only present in small amounts in some fish and eggs. As a result, for over 30 years, ProCaps has always provided extra Vitamin D in all of our multivitamins and Calcium products. An enormous amount of recent research has confirmed the wisdom and necessity of consuming extra Vitamin D, and with our VITAMIN D3 5000 you receive the benefits of the most active form of Vitamin D, plus a bonus of essential Calcium and Magnesium. Consume one or more capsules daily or as recommended by a health care professional. For best results, take this product with food containing a small amount of fat or oil. This product is most effective as part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle, along with one of Andrew Lessman's multi-vitamin-mineral formulas.

A Light Bulb Went Off
By Dan, OH
8/22/2018
After experiencing a Sudden Death episode, I decided I needed to improve my health. On the advice of my neighbor, your best advocate, I started to watch and listen about your vitamins and supplements. When you discussed low Vit. D levels, A Light Bulb Went Off, and I decided to have my checked. Well, it was 10.5 very low. My doctor started me on 5,000 IU per day and I decided to take yours. Now, 2 years later, my level is 55.0. What a difference and I feel so much better, Most doctors do not discuss vitamins or supplements. We must educate ourselves. Please continue to educate and enlighten us because we hear you and it makes sense. They are the best and you get your moneys worth. Thanks again Judy K.
INCREDIBLE MIRACLE WORKER!
By Lorrie, NC

During a visit with my doctor, it was discovered I was so vitamin d deficient I had none. (along with every other hormone / vitamins) My doctor prescribed 20,000 mg a day hoping this would help. Instead of using the prescription, I went to the website and ordered all of vitamins through ProCaps. Not only did it help, but the doctor wanted to know what I was using because he was so impressed with how my body reacted in such a short amount of time. I am now down to taking one capsules a week and still feel great, along with the levels being normal and stable. (I get my levels tested every three months) This product is amazing and for the price, a miracle worker. Who knew vitamin D plays such an important part to our overall health.
Great product but...

I have taken your D for years now. I started out in single numbers.At my last Doctor yearly physical she did my D level count. My level was 100. She told me to stop them until our next visit. She told me my number was too high. For now, I stopped them, been three months now. When retests my level, I look forward to taking them again. I take your Calcium Magnesium too,so stopped both temporarily. It seems to work too good for my body. I am petite, thin, so I need to figure out my daily requirements. I know they certainly work, excellent product. Thank you for making them , and educating people at the same time.
This Isn't Optional!

I ordered Vitamin D before and took it sporadically because I had never had the blood test done and was fairly certain I was not deficient as my blood levels for everything else have always been fine. I really didn't want to take something I didn't need but since I didn't take it regularly, knew it wouldn't hurt me. My knees had been bothering me for quite a while and doctor looked for drug interactions, thyroid and I asked about rheumatoid arthritis since that runs in my family. Well, I went on my own (through Direct Labs, thanks Andrew) and found out today my Vitamin D level is 21.5. I have called the doctor for his guidance to get me back up to what it should be. PEOPLE, get your Vitamin D level checked! It can cause all sorts of problems if you are deficient. I live in sunny Texas and never thought this would be me. Of course I will be 60 in a few weeks and age is a factor also. Thanks for your guidance Andrew, I would have never known about all this if not for you.

Super Product
By Bonnie, GA

Andrew, thank you for making this product. A few years ago my D levels were very low which concerned my doctor. I have been taking your product and my reading is now 42, not ideal but going in the right direction. I am increasing my intake each day. With Andrew's help, I'll reach my goal of 60 or more!
HELPS TO SUPPORT MY BONE LOSS.
By Judy, NY
8/29/2012
I depend on these to help me with my significant bone loss. Am lactose intolerant and cannot have much calcium products. I also take the Women's Complete Vitamins. Just one added ingredient for the Vit D3 -1000 would make this perfect for me. Adding Magnesium which I feel would be more absorbing to these. Andrew would you consider adding it to these?
Thanks So Much, Andrew

I really needed this 2500 especially in the winter. I take Andrew's supplement everyday, my husband does also.
Muscles and Mood
By Stephanie, CT
12/8/2010
I had to write a review on this product, as I rarely feel a noticeable difference in many supplements I take. I suffered many winters depressed, moody and sad. THIS PRODUCT is AMAZING! My vitamin D levels have ALWAYS been borderline deficient by 1 point, ie. 23 where 22 is considered a low lab value. My physician said that levels should be up in the 60s at minimum. So I take 5,000 IU/day and within a month I started recognizing my overly cheery and happy moods consistently! Additionally, this helps your own body absorb the necessary amount of calcium- but I eat plenty of cheese so no need for a calcium supplement:) I also recommend that you pay attention to your body as you know what the right amount is for you. In response to the Institute of Medicine's study on Vitamin D, I just want to say that they have discounted years and thousands of studies on Vitamin D with no real evidence to support their claim that you ONLY need 600 IU of vitamin D/day. This product is a lifesaver; it restores the vigor and energy in my life. This is one product I make sure to take religiously, thank you Andrew for your continued research of all these products!

What a difference..
By Debra, CA

I just feel better since I've been taking this product. I sleep better too. I'm 53 and not as active as I should be but since I've been taking this product I've noticed I'm not "stiff". Getting off the couch is much easier. :o) I feel great! Thanks Andrew.
Thanks for the Larger Size!
By Gitta, NJ
5/30/2010
I take 2 of the 2500 D3s each day. I appreciate the fact that I don't have to take FIVE of the 1000s! So much easier when you're rushed in the morning. I also take many other ProCaps products. All are wonderful. Thank you for being there for us!!
Best D3 available on the market
By David, OH
5/10/2010
I get 1500 IU from the Life Elite RX and now an additional 2500 IU from this product to give me the 4,000 to 5,000 IU I desire. This is the one D3 that actually raises the levels of D in doctor’s tests. I'd love to see you come out w/a 5,000 IU bottle of D3. It's become a number that's becoming more and more common place among those of us knowledgeable about this vitamin. The significance of [Vitamin D3] is so underrated and I can’t say how pleased I am that you offer this. Thank you, Andrew.
LOVE IT!!!

Andrew, I have tried your other calcium supplements and I had to stop because they would constipate me something awful. This formula is absolutely wonderful and I have no problems whatsoever now!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Relief
By Nadine, CA
4/9/2009
We got Hubby's knee[s]...covered with Andrew's Glucosamine with Chondroitin. Next we had to find what would help the...meaty area by the thumbs on his hands. Hubby uses his hands a lot for work and he's not an old guy by any means. We got the Vitamin K-500 and the Vitamin D3-2500, as both help skeletal tissues. Whoo hoo...It's only been a week and the improvement is unbelievably great...Hooray! Thanks for your outstanding products Andrew!
Wonderful!
By Sherri, MI
6/26/2008
This is a terrific product!! Andrew puts such research into his products that you never have to worry. I had been taking this product along with Andrew's Womens Multi-Vitamin for a while now...and one morning as I was getting ready for work a couple months ago, I had "Good Morning America" on the TV and they had a doctor touting the newly discovered health benefits of Vitamin D3. Guess what? I was already right in the optimal range simply by following Andrew's lead. Thank you, Andrew!!!
Good stuff, bit pricey

I know all of Andrew's vitamins are premium. This product just seemed a bit pricey to me.
Careful if prone to kidney stones
By Margo, IA
3/30/2010
Didn't realize until reading the famous national clinic newsletter that excess Vitamin D levels can exacerbate kidney stones for some. Wish he would address this sometimes either on his blogs on while on tv.
