Up until recently, recommended dosage for vitamin D and maximal daily dosage were set on a much smaller level than now. The analysis of a lot of research shows that even the current recommended daily dosage is too restrictive. it's postulated to make the vitamin D dosage higher. This product has a higher dosage than a recommendations, but it's appropriate for scientific proof provided in the recent research. One portion is enough to cover the daily adult dosage. We don't recommend increasing the dose.
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 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.
What is Vitamin K2 MK-7?
Vitamin K2 MK-7 is a long-chain form of vitamin K2 (menaquinone) containing 7 isoprene residues in the side chain. It is a vitamin soluble in fats. It is usually applied to complement the supplementation with vitamin D in order to achieve the synergy of effect and reduce possible undesirable effects.
It exerts the strongest influence on bones and circulatory system. The most significant role of vitamin K2 MK-7 is the activation of osteocalcin – a hormone produced by bones, which among others takes part in transporting calcium to bones and teeth. Thanks to this, it increases mineral density of bones and limits the risk of storing calcium in soft tissues, such as blood vessels, reducing at the same time the probability of developing atherosclerosis.
Other health benefits are based on the possibility of testosterone level growth, thanks to stimulating Leydig cells in testicles and neuroprotective properties, protecting nervous system against degeneration and development of dementia.
Vitamin K2 MK-7 in monopreparations, preparations combined with vitamin D3 and vitamin complexes may be found in the offer of the shop muscle-zone.pl.
What is menaquinone-7?
Menaquinone-7 is a term used for long-chain form of vitamin K2, having seven isoprene residues in the side chain. Contrary to another popular form MK-4, it is not synthesized in tissues, however, it may be produced in the intestines by means of the conversion from vitamin K1 by intestinal bacteria.
It exhibits especially positive influence on the health of the circulatory system, especially by lowering the risk of atherosclerosis and heart attacks. It owes this effect mainly to osteocalcin, activated by vitamin K2. This hormone is responsible among others for the transport of calcium to bones, which counteracts its storage in soft tissues, decreasing at the same time the probability of blood vessel calcification and the creation of atherosclerotic plaques. K2 MK-7 also contributes to protecting the nervous system, securing neurons from excitotoxicity induced by excessive activity of glutamate and reducing the consequences of excessively low level of glutathione.
Vitamin K2 in the form of menaquinone-7 is a very popular additive to supplements with vitamin D3, due to the synergy of effects and reducing potential negative effects of applying higher doses of cholecalciferol.
Menaquinone-7 may be found both in monopreparations and complex supplements in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
