DESCRIPTION

Wynn-Wright Vitamin D3

 

The body cannot synthesize Vitamin D3 on its own, and those who spend a lot of time indoors, who use sunscreen, or who experience harsh winters will have problems maintaining healthy D3 levels.

Vitamin D3 is needed by the body to regulate calcium and phosphorus for bones, muscles, and periodontal health. It also protects against Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) by regulating serotonin activity.

 

What is Vitamin D3?

Although classified as a vitamin, its steroid-like properties D3 transforms into a hormone within the body.

 

In this form, it is circulated in the bloodstream to aid in the absorption of calcium and phosphorous.

The body cannot synthesize Vitamin D3 on its own, and those who spend a lot of time indoors, who use sunscreen, or who experience harsh winters will have problems maintaining healthy D3 levels.

 

 

Benefits of Vitamin D3

Besides regulating the blood serum counts of calcium and phosphorus, Vitamin D3 is also involved in the healthy function of the immune system and inflammatory response.

Supports and maintains healthy bones

Vitamin D3 increases intestinal absorption of calcium and phosphorus needed to  re-mineralize of teeth and bones. Vitamin D3 also helps to prevent weak, fragile bones (osteoporosis), and softening of bones (osteomalacia).

 

Several studies suggest that low Vitamin D levels increase the risk of fractures in older adults, and Vitamin D supplementation can be  extremely effective in preventing such fractures as well.

Helps improve immunity

Vitamin D has beneficial effects on immunity due to its steroid-like qualities, enhancing both innate and adaptive immunity.

 

This particularly beneficial in terms of protecting the respiratory system by stimulating the production of cathelicidin, a protein crucial in fighting upper respiratory infections and tuberculosis.

The effects of Vitamin D have been found particularly notable in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and Type 1 diabetes mellitus.



Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease


Vitamin D deficiency is considered as a risk factor for heart attacks, congestive heart failure, peripheral arterial disease and fatal strokes.

The active form of Vitamin D acts as a steroid hormone by binding to the Vitamin D Receptor (VDR), found in many cells including cardiomyocytes, vascular smooth muscle and endothelium.

 

Current evidence shows that people who are deficient in Vitamin D are at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. 


Vitamin D also improves heart function, reduces arterial stiffness, reduces vascular calcification and arthrosclerosis, thus lowering the risk of developing heart disease.

Improves mental well being

    

Research shows that Vitamin D may play a critical role in regulating serotonin levels for those at risk of or experiencing seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Supports healthy pregnancy and a healthy child

Vitamin D helps to maintain healthy pregnancy. Many studies have demonstrated that Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy can result in potentially adverse outcomes for both mother and child.

 

Studies show that intake of Vitamin D during pregnancy reduces asthma symptoms of children in early childhood.

 

Maternal Vitamin D deficiency can result in multiple health issues such as problems in bone development of the fetus, increased risk of preeclampsia, increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus and increases the risk of respiratory tract infections and wheezing disorders in children.

Reduces blood sugar levels and maintains healthy body weight

Vitamin D has been linked to reducing risks of obesity and development of type 2 diabetes, by improving the body's sensitivity to insulin, the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels – and thus reduce the risk of insulin resistance, often the precursor to type 2 diabetes.

Healthy Vitamin D levels  also help in lowering the body’s levels of cortisol, a stress hormone implicated in the storage of visceral fat, which can eventually lead to metabolic syndrome, linked to health problems such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovasular problems.
