Ingredients: Purified Water (Aqua), Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3), Concentrated Tea Blend Extract, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexlglycerin. Dose: Apply to clean skin twice a day. Rub in well.
Caution: Large doses (1400-2000 IU/day) may cause hypercalcemia, a decrease in renal function, and nephrocalcinosis. Monthly blood tests to monitor serum calcium and parathyroid hormone levels should be done to protect against these health issues. Those with underlying kidney disease should avoid high doses of vitamin D3. Although some research indicates that dosages up to 10,000 IU/day are safe, staying below 2000 IU/day may be prudent. Concerning hypercalcemia, consider the fact that consuming magnesium, calcium, and D3 are synergistic (work much better together than when taken singly). People with hypercalcemia have health issues that may be addressed by correcting/adjusting their overall nutrient intake/profile. In other words, most people walking this planet are grossly undernourished. In addition, consider the fact that approximately 20 minutes of midday sun exposure (at least 40% of skin exposed) equates to absorbing approximately 20,000 IU into the typical Caucasian body. Those with darker skin require significantly more exposure to get the same effect.
The Life Extension Foundation's vitamin D3 above comes from the lanolin of sheep's wool. Extraction happens during the de-fatting process. The D3 that we ingest through milk, yogurt and other related products is also derived from sheep's wool. Sheep produce Vitamin D in the same manner as humans. In contrast to absorbing it directly, they secrete it through their wool and skin oils. The oils and fats obtained from the wool are then purified for use in supplements and other food products that most of us consume on a daily basis.
