Klean Athlete Klean D 5000 IU Supports healthy vitamin D levels for athletes. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. Though classified as a vitamin, vitamin D is actually a key regulatory hormone for multiple physiological processes. It is estimated that 1 billion people, including the elderly, young adults, athletes and children, are vitamin D deficient or insufficient. The main cause of vitamin D deficiency in the athletic population, is the direct result of decreased ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation absorption into the skin, which especially affects indoor athletes and those who live and train in northern latitudes. Adequate vitamin D status is essential for ensuring normal calcium absorption and maintenance of healthy plasma calcium levels. Besides bone support, vitamin D has many other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and inflammatory support. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with diffuse muscle pain, muscle weakness predominantly in the proximal muscle groups, and a reduction in performance speed. Recommended Use: Take one tablet daily with a fat-containing meal or as directed by a healthcare professional.
