Vitamin D for adults
Dietary food for special medical purposes.
Contents: 30 capsules, 270 mg each
A food supplement intended for individuals with recommendations for increased intake of Vitamin D, including pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Vitamin D is vital for the healthy growth and mineralization of bones and teeth. It is involved in calcium and phosphorus absorption and prevents excessive urinary excretion of calcium ions. It balances the level of calcium in blood serum, which is important for nerve cells to propagate impulses and for muscles to contract. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to osteomalacia (softening of the bones) and osteoporosis. Human body produces Vitamin D in cutaneous synthesis, after skin exposure to UV radiation. In the summer, Vitamin D synthesis is inhibited by the application of cosmetics containing UV filters and by avoiding exposure to the sun especially recommended to seniors and pregnant women. In the autumn and winter period, Vitamin D synthesis is further limited by low exposure to sunlight. At the age of 65 and more, the cutaneous synthesis of Vitamin D was shown to be considerably reduced. The National Consultant and the Experts Panel in paediatrics recommend 1000 IU (25 µg) daily intake of Vitamin D in adults and pregnant and breastfeeding women, which corresponds to the dose contained in a single capsule of D-Vitum Forte. In order to prevent bone fractures, over 65-year-olds should preferably take the recommended daily intake of 1000 IU at all seasons due to the reduced effectiveness of cutaneous synthesis *.
