NOW Vitamin D-3 softgels supply this key vitamin in a highly absorbable liquid softgel form. Vitamin D is normally obtained from the diet or produced by the skin from the ultraviolet energy of the sun. However, it is not abundant in food. As more people avoid sun exposure, vitamin D supplementation becomes even more necessary to ensure that your body receives an adequate supply.

    I have used NOW products for a while now, but this was an absolute mess….pills stuck together inside the container so badly I could not get a single one out…I had to cut the bottle open with a box cutter.
    Even once I cut open the bottle, I couldn’t separate the capsules from each other without destroying them.
    It cant be blamed on temperature fluctuations in shipping because I received a bottle of fish oil capsules in the same package.

    I had blood work done because I have an autoimmune thyroid disease. My endocrinologist said my vitamin d level was 28 and normal was 30-100 so she wanted me to take some extra vitamin d. I ordered this and started taking 2 (10,000 iu) every night. I did this for about 6 months and then I asked her to run my vitamin d level again with my thyroid labs. My level was 100.4! She told me to back off the supplements because I was approaching toxic levels. So now I just take 1 every night. I’ll have my labs done again in 6 months. Needless to say, I can attest 100% that this supplement works! And I love how tiny it is. So easy to take.

    While it may be rated as 5,000 IU it does not digest and metabolize well. I was on another brand and could not find it and tried this and my Vitamin D3 level dropped to lower levels than before I was taking any. Clearly these are ineffective.

    I love these. I am Vitamin D deficient due to a thyroid issue, and was told by my doctor to get Vitamin D-3 when my round of 50,000 IU Prescription D was finished. It has been discovered that many people who suffer certain thyroid issues are deficient in this vitamin. It causes lethargy and brain fog among other things. I went to the local drug store and got some tablets, which were incredibly uncomfortable to swallow, and which did not sustain my D levels. After doing a lot of research, I tried these. They are easy to swallow, and have been able to help me sustain an appropriate level of Vitamin D. My fog has lifted and I have my energy back.

    I had blood drawn as part of a regular physical, and my doctor informed me that my vitamin D levels were low. He urged me to start supplementing it since I’m a third shifter and don’t get much sun exposure. It improved my mood, energy level, and sleep. It took some trial and error to figure out the correct dosage for me, but it was well worth it.

    A word of caution: my doctor initially pushed me to take 100k IU a week. With the dose that high I barely slept. I ultimately started trial and error testing to see what dose was optimal for me from a mood and sleep standpoint, and I’ve settled in at 5k twice a week. That excludes the 800IU a day coming from my basic multivitamin. Be mindful of the fact that vitamin D is a hormone, not a vitamin, and it can significantly affect you if you take too much of it. Listen to your body and work your way up slowly. Take one of these and pay attention over the next several days to when your mood, energy levels, or sleep start to decline in quality, then take another.

    A couple of years ago, I felt awful. My doctor ran some tests and one of the things she discovered was that I had a dangerously low vitamin D level. She and I went on Muscle Supplements and ordered this while I was sitting in the office – it’s the vitamin D she takes. After daily dosing for quite some time (after I finished some prescription vitamin D), my levels were back in a normal range. Apparently, low vitamin D levels are extremely common – but not for me anymore! I still take this a couple time a week and it’s kept my levels where they should be. This brand is fairly priced and arrives quickly. It’s one of those things I won’t be without.

    Bottom Line: Very easy-to-swallow gel caps that don’t resemble the traditional “vitamin pill” in any way. Great for raising – and maintaining – vitamin D levels. I’ve bought this same brand/count for a couple of years now and I love it. 🙂

    I take one of these daily as part of my supplement routine and my vitamin D levels stay at the high end of the healthy range, even in winter.

    What prompted this review? Well, I just got the results of my latest bloodwork back. My doctor looked down, then back up at me and commented, “wow, your vitamin D levels are probably the best I’ve seen” (without me even asking about them). So, we have evidence that this is a quality product. Even better, it’s a great value– one bottle will last you nearly a year!

    I always appreciate reviews where people can provide hard evidence for a product’s effectiveness (or lack thereof), so I hope this is helpful. For those curious, my Vitamin D level was 88.2 ng/mL in a reference range of 30.0-100.0 ng/mL.
