View Vitamin D Supplements

We usually associate vitamin D with calcium absorption, and therefore bone health. Indeed, a direct correlation has been shown between, for example, low vitamin D levels and incidence of hip fracture in the elderly. Vitamin D has long been used as part of protocols to treat and prevent rickets, osteoporosis, osteopaenia and osteomalacia – all various manifestations of poor bone density.

It should also be noted that while vitamin D can help with calcium absorption, magnesium has an important role in calcium placement in the body. This is discussed in more detail in the Nutrigold Newsletters “Preventing Osteoporosis” and “Simply Magnesium”. Where there appears to be enough calcium in the diet,

it is advisable to look at both magnesium and vitamin D status as part of your programme to help the body transport calcium to the bones and keep them strong. Calcium absorption and placement are also crucial for a well functioning nervous system, for muscle contraction and so also for heartbeat, and for many other significant functions.

We now also know that vitamin D can be converted into a very powerful hormone in the body that can trigger the expression of over 200 genes, including genes that are involved in immune system response, detoxification and extinguishing cancer cells. This new information has far reaching implications, and has spurred scientists to measure and trial vitamin D with dozens of health conditions, from dermatitis to diabetes. 

We have a number of articles about different aspects of Vitamin D and the vital roll it plays.
