VITA D+ 2000 IU
The unquestionable importance of vitamin D, statistical data showing that 60-80% of people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, and the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) guidelines, have led us to a reassessment of the allowed levels for vitamin D, so that the limit of 2000IU has been reached.
4PLUSNUTRITION has created VITA D+ 2000 IU, based on vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol) derived from Iceland lichen.
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble substance that supports the formation and maintenance of strong bones and teeth, promotes good immunity and is vital for optimal neuronal function. The need for vitamin D should be satisfied almost entirely by sunlight. Unfortunately, this is affected by causes such as the distance from the Equator, the cloud cover and pollution but also by factors such as skin pigmentation and age. Therefore, it is indispensable to supplement the intake of this vitamin.
The main function of vitamin D is to promote the absorption of calcium and phosphorus through the intestinal mucosa, making bone calcification possible. Its importance is apparent in all life stages and, in particular situations such as sport, where a skeleton capable of withstanding the efforts and knocks sustained during sport is required. Various studies have shown its importance for muscles too, which is reflected in the athletic performance of some athletes.
Another role of vitamin D is its action on the immune system and T lymphocytes in particular. Its deficiency is associated with increased susceptibility to infections and some autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, intestinal inflammatory diseases and inflammatory arthritis. Vitamin D can also control insulin secretion and seems to reduce the risk of developing diabetes mellitus. Finally, it plays a vital role in blood pressure regulation and atherosclerosis progression. It also plays an important role against depression, especially in the seasonal affective disorder affecting people who suffer from poor exposure to sunlight.
