Details

DESCRIPTION

The term vitamin D refers to vitamin D2, vitamin D3 as well as to their metabolites and analogues. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is derived from fungal and plant sources; vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is derived from animal sources. Super D3 is derived from lanolin, from sheep’s wool. Vitamin D usually acts as a hormone precursor, requiring two stages of metabolism before reaching hormonal form. Following absorption or endogenous synthesis, it is metabolized to 25- hydroxycholecalciferol (25(OH)D) in the hepatocytes. 25(OH)D is the major circulating form of vitamin D, but is not biologically active. Then, the biologically active hormone form, 1 alpha, 25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25(OH)2D) is produced in the kidneys. Vitamin D receptors exist in a wide variety of tissues and organs.

WHY SUPPLEMENT WITH SUPER D3?

For only 6 months of the year in the UK, sunlight provides the UVB rays that are required for activating Vitamin D in the skin. If one is not exposing enough of one’s skin to the UVB rays then a lack of vitamin D is likely, since research shows that a significant proportion of the population are deficient in Vitamin D. Equally, one needs to ensure that one does not burn in the sun due to excessive exposure to sunlight.

Much research has been undertaken on understanding the role of vitamin D within the body over the past 5 or so years. Its benefits are numerous and deficiency is widespread and its safety profile is extremely high. While the importance of vitamin D for musculoskeletal health is well documented, its importance in numerous other aspects of health are now recognized. They include (but are not limited to) cardiovascular health and immune function.

Therefore the argument to take additional amounts of vitamin D in supplement form is strongly compelling
