Vitamin d3, or also called cholecalciferol, is also absorbed a little better by the body than other forms such as purely vegan vitamin d2 or also called ergocalciferol.
Why is vitamin d3 useful as a dietary supplement?
Vitamin D deficiency is widespread in our society today. The Robert Koch Institute in Berlin conducted a study on vitamin d intake in our population on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Health and tested the vitamin d concentration in the blood of over 4,000 people of all ages. In this vitamin D study it was found that the vitamin D level in the blood was below the critical limit of 50 nmol/l (20 ng/ml) in 57 of the men and 58 of the women tested!
The reason for such widespread vitamin d3 deficiency is that large sections of the population no longer have the opportunity to be outdoors regularly in order to produce enough vitamin d in the sun. Furthermore, in the period from October to April the sun is too deep in the regions of northern and central Europe to be able to produce sufficient vitamin d through the skin. The use of sunscreen with a sun protection factor also limits the body's production of vitamin d3.
What does the body need vitamin d for?
Vitamin D for bones
A sufficient supply of vitamin D is of great importance for bone stability and bone formation. In this context, vitamin d3 deficiency is primarily a risk factor that should not be underestimated for the elderly and children. Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption of calcium from the intestines into the blood until it is stored in the bones and is therefore an essential nutrient for building and maintaining healthy and strong bones.
Vitamin D for the nervous system
A vitamin D deficiency can have a negative impact on the nervous system. Possible signs range from fatigue, sleep disturbances, mood swings, nervousness, aggression or depressive moods. It is therefore important for the general wellbeing to ensure an adequate intake of vitamin D3.
Vitamin D for the muscles
Vitamin D plays an essential role in the functioning of muscles. It is necessary for the formation of muscle fibres and muscle cells. Vitamin D is also important for the release of calcium in muscles.
