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
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.
