Vitamin D3 is known to interact with over 200 different genes and thus plays a crucial regulatory role as a metabolic activator for a multitude of metabolic processes.
Vitamin D is vital to healthy bones, strong immune system functions and mental/emotional wellness. Sunlight helps our bodies produce vitamin D, but our production capacity is limited...especially in winter months when sun exposure is reduced..
SUNVITE 5000 IU vitamin D-3 softgels answer the need for those who require higher intake..
Imported from USA.
Vitamin D from dietary intake or sun exposure requires two
activation steps in the body. The first activation occurs in the
liver, while the second activation occurs in the kidneys,
allowing for regulation of calcium metabolism. However, vitamin d
receptors are present throughout the body, in tissue such as the
skin, cartilage, heart, prostate, bones and intestines. Thus, the
second activation step also takes place in local tissues. Recent
discoveries have highlighted the important modulatory effects of
Vitamin D on various cells of the immune system. Vitamin D
enhances and regulates immune function. It is known that various
cells of the immune system, such as t lymphocytes and antigen
presenting cells, express the vitamin d receptor on their surface
when activated. Recently, it has been found that treatment of
these immune cells with vitamin d influences their expression of
cytokines, which are chemical messengers of the immune system.
The immune modulating effects of Vitamin D extend to monocytes
and dendritic cells of the immune system as well. Dendritic cells
are important antigen-processing cells of the immune system that
function to initiate the immune response. Vitamin d may prevent
over activity of the immune response and keep the immune system
in a normal healthy state of vigilance. Vitamin D supports
optimal cardiovascular function.
Research has uncovered the role vitamin d plays in supporting
cardiac function. Heart myocytes (cells) express the vitamin d
receptor, as do smooth muscle cells of blood vessels. The
benefits of Vitamin D on the heart are potentially far-reaching.
Studies on mice heart cells have shown that Vitamin D
administration impacts their growth and proliferation. In these
cells, Vitamin D inhibited the release of a protein that could be
detrimental to the function of these cells, displaying
cardioprotective properties. It has also been shown that Vitamin
D has a modulatory effect on heart rhythm.
