Vitamin D3‚ also known as Cholecalciferol‚ is one of the main forms of vitaman D. Of the several health benefits that vitamin D offers‚ one of the most significant is its regulation of calcium and phosphorous.
Once vitamin D3 enters the liver it's converted into calcidiol‚ a prehermone. After this‚ calcidiol is converted by the kidneys into calcitriol‚ which is then integrated into our blood as a hormone. Once in the bloodstream‚ calcitriol is responsible for healthy bone growth and remodeling by controlling the bloodstream's levels of calcium and phosphate.
When combined with calcium‚ research suggests that a vitamin D supplement promotes bone health by possibly treating and helping prevent osteoporosis (thinning and weakening bones). Vitamin D allows our bodies to absorb calcium (mineral directly responsible for denser bones) more efficiently‚ and the best way to prevent osteoporosis is to make one's bones as dense as one can while they are young.
It's also suggested that a vitamin D supplement can help prevent vitamin D deficiency‚ of which‚ several health risk are possibly associated with. For instance‚ some studies suggests that a vitamin D deficiency can stiffen arteries and inhibit their ability to relax. This of course puts one at risk for cardiovascular disease‚ migraines‚ and stress related syndromes.
Vitaman D has also been used to treat certain bone disorders like rickets (the softening of bones during a person's childhood). When this disorder occurs in adults‚ it is called osteomalacia. Regardless‚ the condition can be treated with vitamin D supplements like Vitamin D-3 by Progressive Labs.
Even though vitaman D can be absorbed through our skin from the sun‚ some people still don't get enough‚ that's why Progressive Labs' vitamin D supplement can be the ideal choice for them.
