Vitamin D3 is the form of vitamin D that our bodies produce naturally, following a biotransformation of cholesterol following exposure to ultra violet rays from the sun. Vitamin D3 is also found in some animal products too.
Vitamin D3 contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, teeth, muscle function and the immune system.
• OSTEOPOROSIS � The major biological function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, helping to form and maintain strong bones.
• IMMUNE FUNCTION – Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, can be obtained from food, supplements or manufactured by human skin exposed to the sun, plays a key role in boosting the immune system.
• MUSCULAR PAIN � High-dose vitamin D supplementation corrects the vitamin D deficiency that is common in patients with muscular-skeletal pain, provides an important anti-inflammatory benefit, and alleviates muscle pain.
• ANTI-DEPRESSANT � Vitamin D supplementation has resulted in lessening the severity of depression and enhancing mood, sociability, and overall sense of wellbeing. Vitamin D rapidly increases the expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (the rate-limiting enzyme for the catecholamine biosynthesis) by threefold. Summer sunlight increases brain serotonin levels twice as much as winter sunlight, a finding compatible with both bright light in the visible spectrum and vitamin D affecting mood.
