Vitamin D3 Softgels 1000IE - Cholecalciferol by Doctor's Best
Vitamin D3 from Doctor's Best contains 25 mcg or 1000 IU per softgel. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) plays an important role in the human body. Vitamin D receptors have been found in more than 30 types of tissues and organs, including immune cells, brain, muscles, heart, various glands and many more. Vitamin D affects expression of more than 2000 genes, which corresponds to about 10% of the total number of genes. In short, vitamin D is essential for our health.

Because vitamin D is so important to our health, numerous health claims obtain. Well-known claims are, for example, contributions to a properly functioning immune system, to strong bones and to the proper functioning of muscles.

Vitamin D was discovered in 1922 by Edward Mellanby. Vitamin D got its name from the fact that it was the fourth vitamin discovered, D being the fourth letter of the alphabet. Although this vitamin has been known since the early 20th century, regular specialists have long ignored vitamin D. However, the popularity and decline has increased enormously in recent years as new insights have emerged regarding the importance of vitamin D.
Vitamin D3 from the sun only in the summer
We acquire vitamin D3 by sitting in the sun largely uncovered, but avoiding sunburn, between May and October. This applies roughly to the hours between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. It takes at least fifteen minutes to acquire enough vitamin D. Food contains a very small amount of vitamin D. So if we want to have a sufficient vitamin D supply, we have to rely on either the sun or supplementation.
D3 cholecalciferol sulfate
Vitamin D3 from the sun is not the same as vitamin D3 in a supplement. As soon as the skin is exposed to ultraviolet UVB radiation, vitamin D3 sulfate (cholecalciferol sulfate) is produced. Contrary to popular belief, this is not the same form as from supplementation, which is non sulfated vitamin D3 cholecalciferol. Ideally, we use the sun as much as possible in the summer to bring our vitamin D3 levels up to standard. During the winter months, supplementation can be a smart choice.
There are different ideas about the desired level of the amount of vitamin D in the blood. Reference values in the Netherlands, for instance, start at a minimum of 30 nmol/l and are usually based on effects on bones and muscles. Vitamin D, however, plays a role in many other body processes as well. It is therefore important for anyone to maintain adequate levels. Vitamin D supplementation is recommended for men and women who spend a lot of time indoors or who have dark skin, for children, for the elderly and for pregnant women.
