Vitamin D is necessary for the regulation of absorption of calcium and phosphorus, elements that are necessary for bones and teeth health. It contributes to the normal function of the muscles, the neural system, the thyroid and parathyroid glands and strengthens the immune system. It also prevents the symptoms of osteoporosis.
It is very common for many people to have lack of Vitamin D in their blood (25(OH-D)). It is very easy to check your own levels with a simple blood test. But why is this happening?
The first reason is our diet. Fish are very rich in Vitamin D but nobody eats 4-5 portions a week in order to get the necessary amount, while vegetables have very small amounts of it.
Vitamin D does NOT exist in nature where we encounter D3 or cholecalciferol. So we eat D3 which is converted to D with the help of the UV radiation. It takes 3-4 exposures to the sun a week 20 minutes each time. Almost nobody does that especially during the winter months. This is the second reason for the lack of Vitamin D.
So with poor diet and without the necessary exposure to the sun we have lack of this great vitamin. It is a paradox that mediterranean people who live in countries with 300 days a year of sunshine appear to have lower levels of Vitamin D in their blood compared to northern people. This is happening because people in northern countries use dietary supplements.
Besides these properties of Vitamin D, this vitamin plays a determinant role in reducing the danger of emergence of Multiple Sclerosis and helps with the relapses of the disease (Journal of the American Medical Association). It also helps preventing cardiovascular diseases and infections of various viruses such as influenza etc (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition).
We recommend GANOPHEN-D (Dr Tsiolis formula) which contains 2 kinds of extracts of biologically cultivated mushrooms, Reishi and Shitake which are very rich in Vitamin D enriched with naturally processes D3 which, due to the presence of the mushrooms, is absorbable and bioavailable. The presence of Vitamin K2, which helps the production of Calcitonin, a substance necessary for the good health of bones and teeth, plays a major role in the formula. K2 “leads” calcium to the teeth and the bones and not to the arteries walls, where it forms calcium plaques similar to atheromatic plaques with very bad concequenses to the cardiovascular system.
