Why Vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 is a highly bio-active form of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 supports normal function of the nervous system, immune system and musculature. Vitamin D3 helps reducing the risks of falling,that relate to postural instability and muscle weakness. Falling is a risk factor for bone fracture in men and women over the age of 60. The beneficial effect is obtained at a daily intake of 20 micrograms vitamin D from all sources. Vitamin D3 also functions as an important prohormone that contributes to the process of cell reproduction and the maintenance of strong bones and teeth. A prohormone is a hormone that improves the effect of existing hormones.
Because of it’s vital importance and lack of dietary sources, humans evolved to be able to make Vitamin D on their own. Ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation from sunlight penetrates the uncovered skin and naturally gets converted into Vitamin D. Season, time / length of day, cloud cover, smog, sunscreen, and darkness of skin all affect the amount of UV exposure and rate of Vitamin D synthesis. It’s been shown that cloud cover and pollution can reduce UV energy by up to 60%, and UV-B radiation doesn’t penetrate glass, so exposure to sunlight through a window does not produce Vitamin D.
