USES AND BENEFITS OF VITAMIN-D3 BONE HEALTH Vitamin D3 plays an important role in developing healthy bones. It promotes calcium absorption and helps maintain calcium and phosphate levels necessary for the mineralization of bones. It is also needed for bone growth. Vitamin D3 deficiency can result in thin and brittle bones as well as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Together with calcium, Vitamin D3 also helps to prevent osteoporosis in older individuals.
IMMUNE HEALTH Vitamin D3 has been linked with metabolic and immunological processes, which established its role as an essential component of human health preservation. Vitamin D3 has been defined as a natural immune modulator and upon activation of Vitamin D3 receptors, it regulates calcium metabolism, cellular growth, proliferation and apoptosis, and other immunological functions. Epidemiological data underline a strong correlation between poor Vitamin D3 status and higher risk for chronic inflammatory illnesses of various etiologies, including autoimmune diseases.
DIABETES MELLITUS Vitamin D3 supplementation may increase the body’s sensitivity to the blood sugar-regulating hormone, Insulin thus reducing the risk of diabetes. Insulin resistance or insensitivity occurs when the tissues in the body stop responding as strongly to the presence of Insulin. As a consequence, the cells uptake less sugar from the bloodstream producing elevated sugar levels. Vitamin D3 may stimulate insulin secretion. This is via direct action on pancreatic beta cells and indirectly by normalizing calcium levels extracellularly. The evidence of the aforementioned has been confirmed by finding Vitamin D3 receptors on the insulin promoter gene and on pancreatic beta cells.
