Vitamin D- The beneficial power of the sun!
Despite its name, vitamin D is not a vitamin. It is a hormone that promotes the absorption of calcium in the body. Often, we cannot get it through food, as it is mainly found in very oily fish, which is rarely present on our table. That is why nutritional supplements are the most appropriate and convenient choice when it comes to vitamin D.
There are two main types of vitamin D. The first is vitamin D3, which is found in animals, including fish, and is the type that the skin produces when exposed to sunlight. The second is vitamin D2, which comes from plant foods, including mushrooms, and is a less effective and beneficial form for the body. Therefore, on the market, there are mainly dietary supplements with only vitamin D3.
Vitamin D has many important benefits for the body, including:
• improving and promoting bone and dental health
• maintaining the health of the immune system, brain, and nervous system
• regulating insulin levels and reducing the symptoms of diabetes
• supporting lung function and cardiovascular health
Vitamin D deficiency is very common.
The recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin D is usually around 400-800 IU, but experts advise to take significantly more than this amount, especially during the winter months or in case we suffer from a deficiency.
In most cases, vitamin D is available in the form of soft gels or drops. The choice is entirely up to you, and both options have their pros and cons. The liquid form allows the body to absorb it much faster, while soft gels usually have a greater variety of international units (IU).
Vitamin D intake is essential for the functioning of several important organs in the body. So do not hesitate and take a look at the range of Haya Labs products and choose the most suitable for you now.
