SynTech Vitamin D3 270 tabs
Vitamin D is often called the “sun vitamin”, because the body produces Vitamin D itself when the skin is directly exposed to sunlight. The sun’s ultraviolet B rays are absorbed by the skin’s cholesterol, and quickly converted into Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D3 is then transported to the liver and converted into calcifediol (25 (OH) D). To determine a person’s vitamin D status, these 25 (OH) D serum levels are measured in the blood.
Approximately 50% of the world’s population suffers from inadequate levels of Vitamin D, and it occurs in all ethnic groups and at all ages. There are several factors that determine whether a person has a Vitamin D deficiency. Examples that have an influence: the season of the year, lifestyle (indoor or outdoor activities), latitude and/or location where a person lives, skin color, age, use of sunscreen etc.
Vitamin D is rarely found in regular food and therefore supplementation can help.
