100% Food D Complex is a natural, vegetarian, Food complex source of vitamin D. Nearly all other vitamin D sources are synthetic or animal source.
The principal physiological function of vitamin D in all vertebrates, including humans, is to maintain serum calcium and phosphorus concentrations in a range that supports cellular processes, neurological function, and bone ossification. Vitamin D accomplishes this goal by enhancing the efficiency of the small intestine to absorb dietary calcium and phosphorus and by mobilizing calcium stores from the bone.
Clinically, food vitamin D has been used for problems including:
* Hyperirritability (insomnia, restlessness, tachycardia, cramps)
* Tetany (muscle spasms)
* Bone disorders (osteoporosis)
* Lung conditions (bronchitis)
* Lowered resistance (worse in winter due to lack of sunshine)
* Indoor living (avoidance of exposure to sunshine)
* Epistaxis (nosebleeds)
* Delayed healing (bed sores, ulcers, etc.)
“The synthetic forms of vitamin D have been found to be toxic”. Food vitamin D has been reported to raise blood calcium levels, promote the absorption of calcium, and cooperates with essential fatty acids (consider Omega 3/ EPA/ DHA) in calcium metabolism.
Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin, meaning that people who get sufficient sun exposure and have no problems converting cholesterol into vitamin D will normally have sufficient vitamin D. However, because of Western lifestyles, many people simply are deficient in vitamin D.
