is produced by the action of sunlight or ultraviolet light, but in the northern hemisphere we don't get constant sunshine. When we are in the sun many of us use high factor sunscreens that can minimise the production of vitamin D.
Vitamin D is available as a supplement in two forms - D2
supplements are of the same type as created in our body by sunlight and raise serum levels of the nutrient 2 to 3 times higher than the same dose of D2.
Without sufficient levels of D3 in the blood, proper bonedevelopment and muscle contraction cannot take place. A Vitamin D3 deficiencycan lead to adverse medical conditions. Areas of our body, including breast,brain, prostate and colon tissue have receptor cells that are activated by theprecursor form of Vitamin D
.Vitamin D is important for-
normal blood calcium levels
maintenance of bones
maintenance of normal muscle function
maintenance of teeth
normal function of the immune system
has a role in the process of cell division
is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.
normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus
Research continues to highlight the importance of Vitamin D3
for a healthy lifestyle.
Scientists at Kings College, London have found that higher levels of Vitamin D3
have a protective role in age related disease and can contribute to slowing the ageing process. Scientist looked at a part of DNA known as telomeres, these are biological markers which are stuck onto strands of DNA and as we get older these telomeres shrink. This study found that people with higher levels of Vitamin D
had longer telomeres, which protects against disease. Since this research was published there has been a constant stream of research data available highlighting how much our health is influenced by sufficient levels of Vitamin D.
