The importance of high doses of vitamin D has been known for quite some time in the orthomolecular world. Gradually, a deluge of unambiguous research results is also convincing national and European government institutions. Both the recommended daily amounts and the maximum permitted doses continue to increase. This product contains 25 mcg of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), expressed in 1000 IU (International Units), obtained from sheep wool fat. This extra high dosage is suitable for temporary use in the winter months. Moreover, this dosage is suitable in situations where there is an increased vitamin D requirement. Preferably have the vitamin D level determined and dose according to the blood values.
Vitamin D3 most effective
The most common forms of vitamin D (calciferol) are vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Ergocalciferol is a vegetable form, while cholecalciferol comes from animal sources, but is also produced by humans in the skin under the influence of ultraviolet light, such as the sun (hence the nickname "solar vitamin"). These forms of vitamin D are converted in the liver to the metabolite calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D). Calcidiol is converted in the kidneys and other cells and tissues into the biologically active hormone calcitriol (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D) as needed. However, in the field of supplementation, it is important to note that in most cases vitamin D3 appears to be more effective than vitamin D2 in increasing blood calcidiol and ultimately calcitriol.
