THE NORMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
THE MAINTENANCE OF MUSCLES AND BONES.
Vitamin D3 is an essential vitamin that is synthesised through the skin and only a small part is obtained from the diet. It is not present in too many foods (fatty fish, egg yolk, cheese, beef liver and some mushrooms) and its absorption and synthesis by the body depends, among other factors, on how much sun exposure we have. Therefore, most people need Vitamin D3 supplementation to maintain optimum levels in their bodies.
In Spain, despite being a country with many hours of sunshine per year, a growing deficit of this vitamin has been detected in recent years, mainly due to the lack of sun exposure (too much time at home or in the office and the use of sunscreen).
People with coeliac disease or with problems absorbing certain nutrients, with kidney problems, who are pregnant, overweight or have dark skin, are those most at risk of suffering a deficiency of this vitamin.
- Vitamin D3 keeps our immune system in shape and is essential for the correct absorption of calcium in the bones, preventing osteoporosis and bone fractures caused by falls, playing an important role in muscle health.
- In people who do physical exercise: Vitamin D3 prevents the loss of bone and muscle mass, thus improving muscle strength and power and reducing the risk of falls and injuries.
