There are many materials on the benefits of vitamin D. And now many scientists are realizing that it can greatly help us in the fight against the viruses.
In general, people around the world are deficient in vitamin D. Of course it is not necessary to look for the root of all problems, but I always try to harmonize the balance of hormones, vitamins and other things in patients.
Vitamin D is a collective concept that contains more than 50 metabolites of fat-soluble active ingredients. The main forms of vitamin D are D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol). And another part of it enters the body with the food of the animals. In the kidneys, these compounds are converted to calcitriol , a biologically active hormone.
Vitamin D3 has a great influence on the metabolism of phosphorus and calcium. It is mainly thanks to her that we have strong bones. But like any hormone, D3 affects the entire body.
Vitamin D3 influences
- on the synthesis of testosterone and on implantation, that is, the fixation of a fertilized egg in the uterus.
- The degree and rate of progression of dementia (senile dementia),
- Many scientists also associate some cancer safety with a normal level of D3.
The problem is that the inhabitants of North countries with a lack of sunlight to produce enough D3 is not realistic. It is very difficult to get it out of food in sufficient quantity.
Therefore, only food supplements remain.
How can I understand how much vitamin D3 should be taken?
Here, unfortunately, without an analysis it cannot be said.
Even in northern country there are only people with a normal level of vitamin in the blood, and an overdose does not bode well.
Labs are working now, but it’s best to wait for the restrictions on donating blood to be removed and based on your D3 level, take D3 for its normal blood concentration. The normal level of D3 is 30 ng / ml.
Until you know your D3 level, try to eat a varied and correct diet, alternating the animal with vegetables without consuming calories.
