Vitamin D 1000 IU Vitamin D 1000 IU

Now Foods Vitamin D is a dietary supplement containing vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol), which is responsible for such aspects of health as normal functioning of calcium management and normal bone structure.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is synthesised by the skin in the presence of ultraviolet radiation. Providing its proper amount with food is rather challenging, as it is only found in few food products. That is why supplementation is of great help.

Whether it is obtained from food, supplements or the skin, vitamin D has to undergo two stages of hydroxylation to become active. The first stage takes place in the liver and transforms vitamin D into 25-hydroxyvitamin D, also known as calcifediol. The other takes place mainly in the kidneys and results in the formation of the active calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D).

Calcium management regulation
Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium in the bowel and ensures proper calcium and phosphate levels in blood, which determines normal bone mineralisation and prevents hypocalcaemic tetany. It is a disease in which low calcium levels lead to a decrease in the muscle excitability threshold and their excessive contractility. Vitamin D is also needed for the growth and remodelling of bones by osteoblasts (bone forming) and osteoclasts (bone breakdown). Without it, the bones become thin, weak, even deformed. Its lack can lead to rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. It is recommended for seniors along with calcium, as it can reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.

There is some discussion about the correlation between calcitriol levels and deficiencies, bone health and general health. Based on data regarding the demand for vitamin D, the committee of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) determined that people are at risk of deficiency at the level of 30 nmol/l or lower. However, some are in the risk group even with levels of 30-50 nmol/l. It has been determined that the demand for calcitriol is satisfied in 97.5% of the population, which means that its concentration in the plasma is 50 nmol/l or higher.

Additional health benefits
Research described in 2006 in an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that vitamin D has many other benefits besides the ones that it is usually associated with, such as reducing the risk of multiple sclerosis. Another benefit is its ability to reduce the development of cardiovascular diseases, as indicated by discoveries described in 2008 in Circulation. According to research published in 2010 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, vitamin D also helps to reduce the risk of the flu.

Effect on depression prevention
Research has shown that vitamin D can play an important role in regulating the mood and preventing depression. Scientists found out from an experiment that people suffering from depression who were administered vitamin D observed an improvement of the mood. Another study, conducted on people suffering from fibromyalgia, demonstrated that patients with vitamin D deficiencies experienced anxiety and depression more often than those with normal levels.

Support in adipose tissue burning
Everyone who cares about their body and the health of their cardiovascular system should consider supplementing with vitamin D. A study showed that people who took vitamin D preparations along with calcium were able to lose more weight than those who were administered placebo. Scientists have found out that calcium and vitamin D have the ability to reduce appetite. Another study, conducted on overweight people who supplemented with vitamin D every day, showed an improvement in cardiovascular disease markers.

To sum up, Now Foods Vitamin D has versatile health-improving properties and the ability to prevent vitamin D deficiency. It helps to maintain healthy teeth and bones and supports the absorption of calcium, which is a component necessary to maintain health and is particularly important for physically active people. Apart from that, it has many properties that affect overall health. It can be of significance in preventing heart diseases as well as facilitate appetite control and weight loss.

In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
