Vitamin D

Vitamin D is called the "elixir of life." It plays a key role in the fight against a number of diseases of civilization. Vitamin D deficiencies cause:

  • bone pains,
  • muscle pains,
  • rapid fatigue,
  • insomnia,
  • diarrhea,
  • periodontal disease,
  • appetite problems,
  • hypertension.

Vitamin D is fat-soluble. It is stored in the liver and adipose tissue. In food, it is found in two forms: of plant origin (vitamin D2) and animal origin (D3). Its best sources are fatty fish, milk and egg yolks. It is worth remembering that we can obtain about 20% of our daily vitamin D requirements from food.

The largest and most effective natural source of vitamin D is sunlight. Through UVB-induced skin synthesis, we can meet as much as 90% of the daily requirement for this vitamin. But the autumn-winter season is a time of limited sun exposure in our part of the world. Hence the findings - as many as 95 percent of Poles have a persistent vitamin D deficiency. Long-term vitamin D deficiency is detrimental to our bodies.

Therefore, vitamin D supplementation is essential in the coming months. Because rapidly increasing vitamin D deficiencies will translate into a deterioration of our well-being and immunity, regardless of age and gender. Vitamin D deficiencies are linked to the development of Hashimoto's disease. The symptoms of this disease are mainly depression, large fluctuations in body weight, sensitivity to temperature changes, hair loss, rapid fatigue, memory lapses and muscle weakness.

In adults, the optimal daily intake of vitamin D is between 800 and 2,000 IU. Its provision is especially important for seniors over 65. Vitamin D requirements depend on body weight. Obese people should take higher doses.

It is advisable to consult your supplementation with your doctor to achieve the best results. We encourage you to contact our doctors. Purchasing a subscription will ensure uninterrupted access to consultations.
