Overview

Blooms Vitamin D3 1000IU Capsules

Vitamin D is required for the regulation of the minerals calcium and phosphorus found in the body. This regulation plays an important role in maintaining the proper bone structure and healthy teeth. Vitamin D helps with calcium absorption; a diet deficient in calcium can lead to osteoporosis in later life. It has also been found that the occurrence of osteoarthritis is linked to low blood levels of Vitamin D. Supplementation of Vitamin D also leads to an increase in muscle strength thus helping to reduce falls in older people.

Vitamin D is mainly produced in our skin by a reaction that requires sunlight. Vitamin D is found in low levels in food thus requiring exposure to the sun to receive required amounts. There are two types of Vitamin D - Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Vitamin D2 is produced in plants and enters the body through diet. Vitamin D3 is thought to be more bioactive than Vitamin D2 and is used in Blooms Vitamin D3 1000IU. There is growing evidence to suggest that the required daily amount of Vitamin D required is 1000IU, the amount found in one capsule.

Recent research has found that Australians have low blood levels of Vitamin D. 23% of women are marginally deficient in vitamin D while 80% of dark skin and veiled women have a marked deficiency. It also reported that, the average estimated dietary intake of vitamin D is ten times lower than recommended levels. A limit to exposure in sunlight has been thought to account for the reduction of Vitamin D.

Supplementation provides the required amount which is unattainable from diet alone and without the dangers of exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D3 is more effective in raising blood levels of vitamin D than vitamin D2

Vitamin D3 increases absorption of calcium whereas Vitamin D2 does not.

Vitamin D3 binds to plasma proteins and isn’t excreted as easily from the body
