Description
  • Safe dose of vitamin D
  • Fantastic preventive healthcare
  • Prevents rickets
  • Able to reduce the risk of colds
  • Affects the condition of the nervous system
  • Helps to absorb calcium properly
  • Able to improve respiratory system functions
  • Supports health of teeth and bones
  • Modulates the immune system
  • Necessary for normal bone development in children

Now Foods Vitamin D-3 is a dietary supplement containing 1000IU of cholecalciferol per capsule.

Cholecalciferol – an organic chemical compound of D vitamins. Its main source is the synthesis of cholesterol in the skin under the influence of UV-B rays emitted at noon. It exhibits a hormonal effect by activating cholecalciferol-specific VDR receptors. It is a fat-soluble vitamin.

Effect on child development
The activation of the afore-mentioned VDR (vitamin D receptors) in osteoblasts can lead to an improved development of skeletal system structure. Vitamin D is undoubtedly essential for children’s normal development.

There have been reports suggesting that increased vitamin D concentration in the blood of growing children can translate to their increased final height in adulthood.

The primary application of cholecalciferol in children is also worth remembering, and that is reducing the risk of rickets.

Calcium and healthy bones
Vitamin D ensures more effective calcium uptake from the digestive system and its management in the organism. Vitamin D’s ability to stabilise blood calcium levels stems from its effect on parathyroid glands that produce parathormone which releases calcium from its storage places, mainly bones.

Effective functioning of the immune system
Frequent colds are a factor that can effectively make life harder by preventing us from carrying out everyday duties and chores. A vitamin D supplement can be very helpful, as its higher levels mean greater immunity to colds. It proves particularly handy in spring and autumn.

It is also important that it can modulate the activity of cytokines and markers of inflammation, such as IL-5 or TNF-alpha, thanks to which you get optimum proportion of pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory activity and greater stability of the immune system.

Regulating the mood and nervous system functions
Vitamin D levels in the system can be inversely proportional to sleep quality and well-being, and extremely low concentration may be linked even with an increased risk of symptoms of depression.

Normal sleep plays a crucial role in the organism’s functioning. Supplementing D3 deficiencies can potentially improve sleep quality, regenerating the organism more efficiently after a day of activity and preparing it for facing the challenges of the next day.

A protective effect on neurons has also been observed, thanks to which the nervous system can stay in good health for longer.

Health of the respiratory system
As test results suggest, vitamin D3 can reduce the frequency of asthma attacks in ill children. Its higher concentration can also be helpful in sleep apnoea, ensuring better life quality.

Most frequent deficiency in modern society
Yes, that hardly honorific title was awarded to none else but vitamin D. According to statistics, much more people have a deficiency than normal levels. With that in mind, blood 25(OH)D3 levels are worth controlling, and it is good to introduce supplementation adequate to test results.

Now Foods Vitamin D-3 is recommended as a supplement for mild deficiencies of the vitamin as well as preventive healthcare. It can be used in order to improve overall health, especially in terms of the nervous, immune and skeletal systems. Supplementation is particularly recommended in spring and autumn.

Vitamin D

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. 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
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Cholecalciferol

Information

Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is an organic chemical that belongs to the family of D vitamins. It is naturally found in fatty fish, fish oil, egg yolks, milk and dairy products. It is also synthesized in the human body. It is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol present in the keratinocytes of the spinous and the basal layers of the epidermis, and a pre-requisite for initiating this process is the action of 290-315 nm wavelength UVB radiation on the skin.

Cholecalciferol is a biologically inactive compound. In the body, it undergoes enzymatic hydroxylation – first in the liver, with the participation of 25-hydroxylase, when calcidiol is formed and secondly in the kidneys, where under the influence of 1-α-hydroxylase, calcidiol is converted into the final active form – calcitriol.

The most important role of vitamin D3 in the body is the regulation of calcium-phosphate metabolism, which directly affects normal skeletal mineralization. In addition, it is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, insulin secretion, as well as in some functions of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.

Cholecalciferol is the most popular form of vitamin D used in dietary supplements. Studies show that supplementation with vitamin D in this form most effectively and rapidly raises the level of 25 (OH) D3 – a metabolite that is a marker of the level of vitamin D in the body.

Dosage: according to RDI standards for individual age groups.

Lanolin

Information

Lanolin is obtained in the process of cleaning of raw sheep wool from the so-called wool fat, protecting it from getting wet and unbeneficial weather conditions.

Lanolin is commonly used for the production of ointments and creams with lubricating and softening effect, however, it also found application in the production of dietary supplements and more precisely vitamin D3.

In order to obtain vitamin D3 from lanolin, it undergoes cleaning and crystallization and then proper chemical processes, as a result of which 7-dehydrocholesterol is produced - a precursor of vitamin D3, the same which is produced in skin under the influence of UV radiation. 7-dehydrorocholesterol obtained from lanolin is then subjected to the above mentioned radiation, being transformed to vitamin D3.
