It is estimated that vitamin D deficiency affects over 50% of the world population. Factors that increase the demand for this vitamin are: age, overweight or obesity, insufficient supply of vitamin D, along with diet, as well as kidney and liver diseases.
Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.
Lanolin is obtained in the process of cleaning of raw sheep wool from the so-called wool fat, protecting it from getting wet and unbeneficial weather conditions.
Lanolin is commonly used for the production of ointments and creams with lubricating and softening effect, however, it also found application in the production of dietary supplements and more precisely vitamin D3.
In order to obtain vitamin D3 from lanolin, it undergoes cleaning and crystallization and then proper chemical processes, as a result of which 7-dehydrocholesterol is produced - a precursor of vitamin D3, the same which is produced in skin under the influence of UV radiation. 7-dehydrorocholesterol obtained from lanolin is then subjected to the above mentioned radiation, being transformed to vitamin D3.
Vitamin K exists in the triad of vitamins: menaquinone (vitamin. K1), menadione (vitamin. K2) and menadione (vitamin. K3), soluble in fat. It is produced by bacteria in the human colon. Natural sources of vitamin. K are: eggs, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, meat, milk, lettuce, spinach, fish oil and liver. The synthetic form is administered to newborns, to reduce the sterility of the gastrointestinal tract. Used as a antihaemorrhagic, due to its participation in the process of prothrombin. Increases antibacterial and antifungal immunity. Prevents abundant bleeding during menstruation of women.
Vitamin K deficiency causes external bleeding and ecchymosis on skin, decreased prothrombin synthesis in the liver (especially while taking antibiotics and sulfanilamide).
What is menaquinone?
Menaquinone is the term used for vitamin K2. It appears in short- and long-chain forms, the most popular of which are MK-4 and MK-7, containing respectively 4 and 7 isoprene residues in the side chains.
Vitamin K2 exhibits the widest spectrum of its activity by means of osteocalcin, which it has the ability to activate. By means of this hormone produced by bone cells, it may support the state of mineral density of bones and the condition of blood vessels and lower the risk of circulatory diseases. An interesting property of this vitamin is stimulation of Leydig cells to synthesize testosterone, which will be of interest especially to men. K2 also has neuroprotective properties, protecting from excitotoxicity caused by glutamate and oxidative stress from glutathione deficiency. Osteocalcin may also increase adiponectin release from fatty cells, thanks to which it is possible to achieve better insulin sensitivity and decrease inflammations.
Menaquinone is contained in dietary supplements available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
