In the last few years, vitamin D3 has received great and justified attention from experts and the general public. An increasing number of studies indicate the importance of vitamin D3 and that its level in the blood is a good parameter for assessing general health, given that it has numerous functions in the body.

Vitamin D3 is important for the whole body, and above all for bone health. Insufficient amounts in children lead to rickets, and in adults osteoporosis and osteomalacia occur, where bone breakdown occurs. Given that it regulates various processes in the body, it is not surprising that a lack of vitamin D can lead to serious consequences for human health. A low level of this vitamin is associated with an increased risk for the development of cardiovascular diseases, asthma in children, malignant diseases, multiple sclerosis, disorders within the immune system. Optimum amounts are also important due to fertility, that is, the fertility of a certain person. In the pancreas, it is necessary to maintain good insulin secretion. In the brain, it is essential for the optimal maintenance of the nervous system, as well as for the muscles.

Do we have enough vitamin D3?

Its deficit is constantly increasing. 64% of the population on the entire planet lives with less than the necessary amount. There are also parts where the deficit is present in as many as 80% of people. In Europe, 58% of people live with an insufficient amount of vitamin D3.

Low levels of vitamin D3 have become a public health problem. What is the main cause?

Exposure to the sun is the main source of vitamin D3, both for children and for adults at all ages, but we are witnessing today that it is not practiced every day due to the “fast pace” of life. In addition to this, important factors for the emergence of vitamin D3 deficiency are the industrial revolution, which results in environmental pollution, clothing and the use of protective creams during sun exposure, the winter period, and what is very significant, insufficient intake of vitamin D3 through food. In addition to this, there is also a functional deficiency of vitamin D3, which is a consequence of various diseases (liver and kidney diseases due to increased urinary excretion of vitamin D3, obesity…). With all this, we come to the conclusion that vitamin D3 supplementation is necessary. The recommended daily dose depends on the age and the general condition of the organism, for this reason a consultation with a doctor or pharmacist is mandatory.

If we already have to take vitamin D3 in the form of supplementation, in the wide range of vitamins that are offered to us today, we must be wise and choose the one that has other health benefits, namely vitamin D3 with INULIN, a probiotic culture, which has beneficial effects on the intestinal tract. flora.
