I wanted to receive information about vitamin D3. Especially how to take it and if you can maintain a very long-term treatment or you have to take breaks since it is fat-soluble.
R / LAMBERTS® offer 3 presentations of vitamin D with different potencies in its natural form, according to each individual need: 400 IU (10μg), 1000 IU (25μg) and 4000 IU (100μg). Vitamin D can also be found in the multi-nutrient formulas of LAMBERTS® and in products such as: Vitamin D3+K2, Osteoguard®, Chewable Calcium and Cold Liver Oil.
This vitamin, like other fat-soluble nutrients, can be measured in Micrograms (μg) or in International Units (IU). 1 IU of vitamin D = 0.025 μg of colecalciferol.
Vitamin D is called “the sun’s vitamin”. It is essential for bone health and can slow the progression of osteoporosis, strengthen the immune system and help prevent some diseases. There are numerous studies on vitamin D that support the argument that we should all monitor our intake of vitamin D. What’s more, the body’s ability to produce vitamin D decreases with age, so vitamin D deficiencies are common in people greater.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be ingested with food or manufactured by the body as a result of the incidence of sunlight on our skin. People with little exposure to sunlight often decide to supplement their diet with an extra supply of vitamin D. It is also important for the absorption and normal use of calcium and phosphorus, and contributes to the process of cell division.
Without enough vitamin D, the body cannot absorb calcium from food or supplements. When blood calcium levels are low, the body will remove calcium from the bones into the blood to supply the muscles (especially the heart), and the nerves with the amount they need. Over time, this reassignment of calcium leads to a loss of bone mass.
Therefore vitamin D contributes to reduce the risk of falls related to postural instability and muscle weakness. Falls are a risk factor for bone fractures in men and women from 60 years and this benefit is achieved with a dose of 20 μg daily. Today scientists continue to discover more functions of vitamin D and health professionals recommend their intake, monitoring the appropriate levels by analytics.
Update December 2020: LAMBERTS® offers 7 presentations of vitamin D3.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Where is Vitamin D3 from Lamberts extracted?" title_tag="h2"]
Our D3 vitamins are made from lanolin, a fatty substance present in sheep’s wool that is extracted through a process that mimics the way the body produces vitamin D3 in response to sunlight on the skin.
The sheep is not affected at all in the process, so many vegetarians consider it appropriate.
The glycerin used in the capsule is based on a plant with antimicrobial properties.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Calasorb with Vitamin D 400 UI ?" title_tag="h2"]
R/ It is much better to take Calcium with Vitamin D. However, you should first consult your health care provider about vitamin D levels. Currently, vitamin D deficiency is a matter of concern for many health professionals (including gynecologists, traumatologists, cardiologists, etc.), since there are deficiencies of this nutrient and of continuous way the clinical studies reveal the great importance of the same for our organism.
In Lamberts® we have several formulations that contain both nutrients, and others with these nutrients separately. These products with vitamin D and Calcium individually carry a greater concentration, since they are designed for deficiency states of these nutrients.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Is Vitamin D3 active?" title_tag="h2"]
Is Vitamin D3 active?
R/ Vitamin D3 is transformed into the active form of the vitamin 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, previous metabolization. It is the same process that occurs with vitamin from food, because the body absorbs it in the D3 form.
