What are Vitamin D3 Tablets?
Vitamin D is regarded as an extremely important health-sustaining factor because apart from being a vitamin it works as a hormone which can influence thousands of different human genes and cells. The active form of vitamin D is one of the most potent hormones in human body. We now know that it regulates more genes and bodily functions than any other hormone yet discovered! Recent studies suggest that maintaining our vitamin D levels at around 50ng/ml to 80ng/ml may have incredible health benefits relating to fat metabolism, immunity, viral infections, respiratory health, bone health, cardio-vascular health, blood glucose levels and both types of diabetes, hormonal balance, athletic performance, skin health, mood, joint health, ageing, migraines, sleep, and many other aspects of health and various conditions.
Low levels of vitamin D are associated with obesity, more than 100 autoimmune conditions, weak and dysfunctional immune system, certain types of cancer, high cholesterol levels, multiple sclerosis, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis, periodontal disease, insomnia, infertility, cystic fibrosis, depression, migraines, Alzheimerâs disease, schizophrenia, and many other health problems.
A 2013 study by University of Kentucky researchers found that low levels of vitamin D lead to brain damage.
Also pregnant and lactating women are encouraged to take vitamin D3 supplements (new studies suggest 4000 IU daily is optimal daily amount of D3 during pregnancy.
Immune cells have special receptors for Vitamin D and depend on it for strength and normal function. Vitamin D also acts as an immune system regulator because although it stimulates different types of white blood cells to fight with bacteria, viruses or cancer cells yet at the same time it can prevent excessive expression of inflammatory cytokines. In this way vitamin D may be very helpful in coping with allergies and autoimmune diseases. It also prevents prolonged or excessive inflammatory responses associated with many health conditions including autoimmune diseases. Vitamin D can be very effective in fighting flu or colds as it produces numerous natural and harmless antibiotics such as antimicrobial peptides. It increases our ability to fight chronic inflammation and infections. German scientists discovered that vitamin D increases the effectiveness of human immune system by 3 to 5 times while dramatically stimulating the production of potent anti-microbial peptides! Moreover, ultraviolet radiation sun exposures, which stimulate the production of vitamin D in the skin, has been shown to reduce the incidence of viral respiratory infections, along with a wide range other health conditions. According to a 2017 major global study conducted by the researchers at the University of Queen Mary London, Vitamin D supplements protect against acute respiratory infections including colds and flu. The study provides the most robust evidence yet that vitamin D has benefits beyond bone and muscle health. The trial of 430 schoolchildren in Japan found that taking daily vitamin D supplements in winter decreased their risk of seasonal flu, compared to taking an inactive tablet.
It is believed that in any cold or cloudy countries, such as England, almost every person may be deficient in vitamin D. In America 90% of population is deficient in the same vitamin. Surprisingly, also in very hot and sunny countries the deficiency of this vitamin seems to be rampant. In India, for instance, 80% of people are deficient in vitamin D. The reason for this is two-fold. First of all, people living there do not properly expose their bodies to the sun on a regular basis. The second and equally important cause is the very common today all over the world magnesium deficiency as without magnesium vitamin D remains inactive!
Researchers suggest that people with dark skin tone require up to 6 times more sun exposures to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels! Dark skin contains more melanin which protects against ultraviolet radiation exposures reducing production of vitamin D from cholesterol under skin.
Who are Vitamin D3 tablets for?
Vitamin D3 tablets may be of benefit to;
- People who wish to maintain strong healthy bones
- Individuals with compromised immune system
- People suffering from frequent infections
- Those who want to maintain normal blood pressure and blood glucose levels
- Elderly people who are more prone to bone disorders
- Elderly and growing children who may not be able to obtain adequate amount of the vitamin D
- People with a darker skin tone require higher doses of vitamin D
When should I take Vitamin D3 Tablets?
Vitamin D3 Tablets can be taken on a daily basis to ensure adequate Vitamin D intake.
Why Vitamin D should be taken with Magnesium?
Supplemental Vitamin D requires magnesium for its final conversion to its most active form known as vitamin D4 in kidneys. If you are deficient in magnesium (most people are) then even mega doses of vitamin D will not produce any benefit and this fact was repeatedly demonstrated by scientific studies. In addition, since vitamin D uses magnesium stored in the body it gradually leads to its deficiency.
