In sun-drenched Australia, who would believe that close to a quarter of the population are Vitamin D deficient? According to a study of South Australians published in 2014, 22.7% are indeed deficient1. This is based on serum levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, the active form of this important vitamin. It has been suggested that 50% of the world-wide population are vitamin D deficient2.

 

Vitamin D3 Capsules

Most of the vitamin D in the human body is synthesized naturally in the skin as a result of direct uninhibited exposure to the sun. Though the diet plays a minor role in maintaining vitamin D status, the best sources of this nutrient are wild caught salmon and other oily fish, like sardines3.

 

Low vitamin D levels are often directly caused by inadequate sun exposure. Those at the highest risk of deficiency are smokers, the inactive, those classified as obese, and of course anyone confined to indoors, such as those who are ill and confined to bed rest. The filtered light that reaches the skin through a glass window does not stimulate vitamin D synthesis due to essential UVB rays being blocked out.

 

Body fat has a propensity to store vitamin D, which means that serum levels are lowered due to this adipose tissue uptake. Anyone with an excess of body fat requires more careful sun exposure or typicall yhigher levels of supplementation. Herbs of Gold Vitamin D3 1000 provides a convenient 1,000IU of the active form of vitamin D in each capsule, in a base of rice bran oil to enhance absorption. 

 

Vitamin D is produced in the skin from 7-deoxycholesterol, which is a form of cholesterol. This is one of the vital roles cholesterol plays in the body. The inactive form of vitamin D is then converted in the kidneys and liver to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, the biologically active form. One of the crucial roles of vitamin D is to increase intestinal absorption calcium and phosphate, helping to prevent osteopenia and osteoporosis.

 

Vitamin D has also been demonstrated to assist in the prevention of multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diebetes type 1 and type 2, heart disease, dementia, cancer and infectious disease, as well as reducing the risk for falls in the elderly. Herbs of Gold Vitamin D 1000 is helpful for the prevention and management of a diverse range of health maladies, providing the bioactive form of vitamin D.
