Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble prohormones that are best known for the role they play in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the GI tract. However, a growing body of research highlights its important role in supporting other body systems, including cardiovascular and blood sugar balance.
The Vitamin D 1,000 IU formulation is delivered as D3 (cholecalciferol) for optimal absorption in the body.
Vitamin D Depletion
While it has long been assumed that the majority of the population achieves adequate levels of vitamin D through exposure to the sun, the biosynthesis of the nutrient is affected by time of day, seasons, location, smog/pollution, clothing, and sunscreen.
Vitamin D depletion among many other issues is associated with sleep deprivation, fatigue, frequent infections, depression, poor wound healing, hair loss, increased risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and bone loss.
Bone and Dental Health
Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of vitamin D to maintain healthy bone density.
Cardiovascular Health and Blood Sugar Balance
In light of the role that vitamin D plays in a variety of tissues and body systems, it comes as no surprise that much research from recent years has underscored its contribution to cardiometabolic wellness. Vitamin D has also been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
Immune Health and Modulation
One of the more profound functions of vitamin D is its ability to modulate immunity. An important recent study suggested that improving vitamin D status significantly affects the expression of genetic pathways linked to immune activity. Vitamin D has been shown to boost the immune response by up-regulating specific genes.
Numerous studies also point to the key role of vitamin D in supporting musculoskeletal strength and comfort.
Studies have revealed a serious link between lower levels of vitamin D and higher instances of depression. Older adults are particularly susceptible to developing depression from a lack of vitamin D.
Vitamin D3 Activity and Toxicity
Vitamin D3 down-regulates its own receptors. This is one reason it is recommended that you do not take Vitamin D3 daily. Another reason to not take Vitamin D3 daily is to avoid getting too much Vitamin D3. Too much Vitamin D3 can result in toxicity manifested as calcifications to the electrical system in your heart, calcium deposits in organs, and kidney stones.
