Vitamin D3 5000 IU by Vita Optimum: Review and Giveaway!

I have been trying a Vitamin D3 softgel by the Vita Optimum company. I have also been taking their Omega 3 Fish Oil (Review Here). I have been testing them both for about 3 weeks and I am liking them a lot.

Vitamin D is important. It helps the body absorb the proper amount of Calcium which builds strong bones. I try to get my daily allowance of vitamin D naturally from the sunshine, but do not get outside as much as I would like.

These softgels are easy to swallow, and have no aftertaste or unpleasant fragrance. I trust this brand and this supplement, as the company seems to be very proficient in their knowledge of nutrition. This supplement is made in the USA in a FDA registered facility with strict certification and testing. This contains pharmaceutical grade Vitamin D3 with no artificial additives and no fillers. It contains Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

This does NOT contain any:
artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, starch, soy, yeast, peanuts, milk, lactose, egg, wheat, gluten, fish, shellfish, and tree nuts.


Vitamin D3 5000 IU per softgel. Organic GMO-free Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Bovine Gelatin, (Kosher/Halal), Vegetable Glycerin, Purified Water, GMO-free MCT Oil (from Coconut).


As a dietary supplement, take 1 softgel daily (contains 5000 IU as cholecalciferol), or as directed by your healthcare professional. For best absorption take it with meals. I take mine in the evening before bed as that is the time I take all my other supplements and vitamins. I make sure to take this with food as it suggests.

How many pills are in the bottle? Each bottle contains 360 softgels, a 1 year supply for 1 person. I think that seems to be reasonable for such a high quality supplement.

Vita Optimum, their level of Service to customers and their Creed:

According to their website, their philosophy is simple: PURE, NATURAL, and VERIFIED. They realize that they are not the cheapest in cost, however, they strive to provide the best product possible. I agree that a top quality product far succeeds in importance than just being cost conscious with a low quality product. I myself rather pay a little more and get better service, and a product I can trust.

The company was quick to respond to my emailed questions that I had. They are kind and knowledgeable in all messages, sincere and offer a money back, "Unconditional Guarantee" if ever there was a problem. They guarantee 100% Satisfaction with their product. If for any reason you are not satisfied, you can ask for a full refund at any time. That is very reassuring to me.

My first bottle of D3 had the softgels stuck together in one hard clump, due to slight damage to the product from shipping in transit from the extreme heat. It was not the company's error or fault at all. It did not worry me too much, however, the customer service representative immediately sent a replacement to me. She followed up with me and it was so nice to feel that I was an important customer. My needs were met.

I recommend this product and have tried 2 of their products so far. Both seem favorable. For more information on this D3 supplement, you can purchase on Amazon: Vitamin D (D3) Pills 5000 IU

In the last picture that has 2 different D3 softgels, the Vita Optimum is on the left. It is only slightly larger than my other brand of D3 that I had been taking. Both are equally easy to take, neither have given me any side effects. I do feel that taking a D3 supplement makes me have a bit of a boost in my mood and I like how it is said to help with bone, breast and heart health.
