1.9.2- Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is one of the few vitamins which can be manufactured by the body from sunlight. A key ingredient in Frummi, it is important for healthy hair and mental and physical vitality.

GOOD TO KNOW

Vitamin D belongs to a group of vitamins that are fat-soluble. Uniquely among vitamins, it can be produced by the human body on its own, given sufficient natural sunlight. The other key source of Vitamin D is food. The best-known D vitamin is D3, also known as calciol or cholecalciferol.

Vitamin D is technically not a vitamin at all, as it is capable of being produced by the body. A better name for it would pro-hormone.

Vitamin D deficiency is quite common and should be given greater publicity. The recommended daily requirement for adults is 100mg, but this varies greatly depending on gender, age and life circumstances.

Up to 25 minutes’ exposure to the sun is usually enough to ensure you have enough Vitamin D, depending on skin type, location and time of year. But beware of excessive exposure to the sun’s rays.´

HISTORY OF VITAMIN D

The development of Vitamin D is closely linked to the search for a cure for rickets. In 1919, it was discovered that artificial UV light could correct the defective mineralisation of bones. In 1921, it was discovered that normal sunlight would also be effective against rickets.
 
At the same time, British scientist Sir Edward Mellanby was researching whether rickets was caused by dietary deficiency. In 1919 he proved that the intake of milk, butter and cod liver oil could have a restorative effect.


It was assumed that the beneficial effect of the cod liver oil was due to the oil’s high Vitamin A content. But paediatrician John Howland discovered that the active ingredient was not Vitamin A, but another, unknown vitamin. This came to be known as Vitamin D, which was then subject to further development and synthesis.

FOODS CONTAINING VITAMIN D

Vitamin D is manufactured by the body on exposure to sunlight, but is also contained in the following foods:

  • Egg yolk
  • Liver
  • Yogurt
  • Avocados
  • Veal
  • Mushrooms
  • Various cheeses (e.g. gorgonzola)
  • Fatty fish such as herring, salmon and mackerel

Vitamin D is also highly present in breast milk and in dietary supplements such as Frummi.

BENEFITS OF VITAMIN D

Vitamin D performs many important functions in the body, such as regulating calcium levels and bone formation. Other functions include:

  • Helps protect against Parkinson's disease
  • Promotes muscle strength
  • Reduces risk of cancer and diabetes
  • Supports cardio-vascular function
  • Helps prevent and alleviate auto-immune diseases, asthma and dementia
Vitamin D deficiency can lead to muscle weakness, childhood rickets, deformities of the skull or bone structure, and increased risk of osteoporosis in adults. Osteomalacia, or bone softening, may be a sign of D3 deficiency.
 

Overdose is unlikely, but excessive consumption of supplements may result in kidney stones.

VITAMIN D AND FRUMMI FOR HEALTHY-LOOKING HAIR

Vitamin D stimulates the hair follicle cycle and thus promotes strong, thick hair. It is therefore one of the essential ingredients in Frummi, helping to build resistant hair structure and guard against hair loss.
