Now Foods Vitamin D-3 is a dietary supplement which contains 2,000 IU of cholecalciferol in each capsule.

Vitamin D3 – is one of the substances we need for the proper functioning. It is one of the vitamins soluble in fat. It is the only vitamin which has steroid structure, is produces from cholesterol, just like the steroid hormones, such as testosterone or cortisol. In the body system, it undergoes multistage transformations. The initial form of cholecalciferol, which is transported to the liver, is converted to calcidiol, and then to the active calcitriol in the kidneys.

Modulation of the immune system functions
Vitamin D promotes the reduction in symptoms associated with the impaired functioning of the immune system, such as asthma or atopic dermatitis. It can shorten the time of colds, as it supports the fight against infections. It contributes also to the reduction in the risk of autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, which is interesting information as the number of autoimmune disease cases is nowadays growing.

Strong bones
Vitamin D plays an important role in bones development and their good condition. This is because of the positive influence on bone-forming cells, referred to as osteoblasts, whose membranes are rich in vitamin D receptors. Their activation allows for more effective division and faster maturation.

Not to mention the influence on the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorous, because it is the most important characteristic of vitamin D, and this is a feature we have known the vitamin for since the time of its discovery. The vitamin allows for the more effective transport of the elements mentioned, from the gastrointestinal lumen into the bloodstream, and then for their smoother distribution in the body. Thanks to vitamin D we can also maintain the proper calcium level, because of the reduction in the release of the parathormone which draws calcium out of bone tissue.

Impact on sport condition
Physically active people can be interested in the potential growth in the level of hormone which is particularly important in sports, testosterone. The increase in the level of this steroid means smoother muscle regeneration after training and stronger anabolism, which results in faster sport progression. Vitamin D participates also in the regeneration of muscle functions, and the proper control over muscles is one of the basic elements of success in sports. The studies conducted by the researchers demonstrate also smoother regeneration of muscle fibres damaged due to training.

Protection of the nervous system and mood improvement
Efficient nervous system is essential not only for general well-being and maintenance of cognitive functions, but also for the proper control over the body during the whole life, because any dysfunctions of this system can result in epilepsy, essential tremor or neuropathic pain. In this aspect, protective effects of vitamin D consist mainly in the modulation of calcium channels functions in neurons, which inhibits excitotoxic influence of glutamate due to excessive activation of NMDA receptors in the brain.

It has been demonstrated that vitamin D deficiencies are related to the frequency of depressive disorders; once the deficiency is complemented the researchers reported significant improvement in subjective assessment of life quality and well-being. The researchers indicate also a potential influence of low level of the vitamin on the deterioration in sleep quality, which negatively affects mood during the day, as lack of sleep and regeneration undoubtedly deteriorate the joy of life.

Healthy heart and blood vessels
Maintaining the proper concentration of vitamin D in the body system allows for a reduction in inflammations responsible for atherogenesis, which reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and infarction. Scientific research has demonstrated that supplementation of this vitamin can reduce the number of cardiovascular diseases. Due to the regulation of the renin-angiotensin system, the product can be beneficial also for people struggling with too high blood pressure.

Insulin sensitivity and diabetes
The resistance of cells to insulin action can cause much damage in the body system, because of excessive glycation, caused by too high concentration of glucose in blood, and potential growth of adipose tissue whose excess can increase inflammations because of produced cytokines.

Similarly to other ailments, the researchers reported inverse correlation between the concentration of vitamin D in blood, insulin sensitivity level and the risk of diabetes. The supplementation can contribute to the improvement in many indicators of metabolic health. They include fasting insulin level, test result after glucose load and HOMA index.

Now Foods Vitamin D-3 is recommended to everyone who struggles with vitamin D deficiency, especially if it was confirmed by blood tests. It will be also beneficial for people struggling with fragility of bones and teeth, immune system disorders or depression. It is a perfect preventive healthcare in the cold period, as it complements the level of vitamin which cannot be produced by skin due to the lack of sunlight.
