How does vitamin D3 drops work?
Cholecalciferol - is an organic chemical compound from the group of vitamin D. It is fat-soluble and has the ability to be stored in the body. It is best known for its effects on calcium metabolism and positive effects on bones, but in recent years many more health properties of vitamin D have been discovered, on virtually every system in our body. It is synthesized in the skin under the influence of UV-B rays on 7-dehydrocholesterol.
Who should use vitamin D3 drops?
It is estimated that up to 90% of the population may have insufficient levels of vitamin D in their blood. This makes the vitamin infamous as the most deficient vitamin in the body. The reason for this may be low exposure to sunlight during the hours of 11 am to 2 pm, which have the highest UV-B emissions. Unfortunately, these hours coincide with the working hours of most of the population, making it impossible to benefit from the sun's health-promoting properties.
How does vitamin D3 work?
Calcium and Phosphorus Management Vitamin D effectively promotes the absorption of these minerals in the intestines, and subsequently benefits their utilization. It also contributes to the regulation of calcium concentration in the blood. The reduction of parathormone levels by vitamin D may contribute to limiting the release of calcium from stores in the bones, allowing the maintenance of greater bone mineral density.
Self-esteem and mental health Cholecalciferol is characterized by its powerful effects on mood regulation. Studies show that low levels of this vitamin in the blood increase the risk of depression and mood-related disorders. Vitamin D deficiencies are also associated with decreased sleep quality; supplementation with the highly concentrated vitamin can effectively address sleep problems. Better sleep, on the other hand, means more energy during the day and more efficient functioning of the entire body. Vitamin D has shown the ability to modulate calcium channels in neurons. It can also control cell death through excitotoxicity. One may be tempted to conclude that this vitamin protects the nervous system and may contribute to maintaining mental performance for a longer period of time.
Hormonal activity of vitamin D The view of this vitamin changed dramatically when vitamin D receptors (VDRs) specific to it were discovered in most cells of the human body. This has shed new light on its functionality, as it indicates a hormonal effect.
Effects on testosterone Supplementation with cholecalciferol contributes to an increase in testosterone levels in men who previously complained of low levels. It can also result in a decrease in SHBG, or sex hormone-binding globulin, thus increasing the concentration of biologically active free testosterone. What's more, vitamin D supplementation has been observed to slow the decline in androgens resulting from aging, allowing you to enjoy vitality for a long time.
Benefits for athletes The effect on muscle function translates into better body control and stronger activation of muscle fibers for work. Regulation of androgen levels and tissue sensitivity to insulin allows maximization of anabolic processes and optimal utilization of nutrients. Beneficial effects on fat reduction are also noted, thanks in part to elevated adiponectin. Studies confirm the effect on increasing the burning of spare body fat in people who previously suffered from vitamin D deficiency.
Now Foods Vitamin D-3 is recommended in cases of established vitamin D deficiency in the blood. The product can also be used to improve overall health and as a support for people who train intensively. The dietary supplement is also worth using when the amount of sunlight is reduced, especially in the period from September to March where access to the sun remains limited. The same happens in the summer, when we spend most of our time behind a desk at work or, fearing for our skin, we apply large amounts of creams with high UV filters - then, too, the amount of vitamin D produced by the body can be really small. When using vitamin D3, it is also worth thinking about vitamin K2, which improves calcium metabolism.
Dosage of vitamin D3 drops:
One drop one to two times a day. Best consumed with a meal containing fat.
