Ergocalciferol vitamin d2 co calcifer all is made in the skin in response to uvb radiation avago calcifer all is produced in plants and fungus and also in response to uvb radiation both forms of vitamin d are an active and must undergo conversion in the liver and kidneys to form biologically active compounds ergocalciferol and co calcifer all our hydroxylated

By hepatic microsomal enzymes to 25 oh d also referred to as calcifer deol ou further conversion of this intermediate form in the kidneys produces the physiologically active forms 25 dihydroxy vitamin d calcium and 1 comma 25 dihydroxy vitamin d calcitriol the main circulating form is 25 dihydroxy vitamin d vitamin d products are primarily eliminated through

Excretion in the bile the mean elimination half-life of 1 comma 25 dihydroxy vitamin d is five to eight hours in adults the circulating vitamin d is bound to serum proteins and is widely distributed throughout the body it is stored primarily in the lip the body is built to get its supply of vitamin d through skin fronts from sunlight rather than through food by

Mouth co calcifer all and ergocalciferol can both be found in the form of a supplement co calcifer all is also present in cod liver oil products vitamin d is scarcely found in food fatty fish have small quantities of co calcifer all while irradiated mushrooms have small quantities of ergocalciferol milk and yogurt fortified with vitamin d be4 calf liver egg yolk

D deficiency can put the baby at risk for rickets abnormal bone growth and delayed physical development the deficiency and sea of vitamin d in pregnancy is linked to a greater risk of preeclampsia and a great need of c-section the adequate levels of vitamin d during pregnancy are critical to the development of brain in the big diabetes vitamin d plays a vital role

In the normal functioning of the immune system its deficiency can lead to the malfunctioning of the immune system type 1 diabetes develops due to the malfunctioning of the immune system which will start attacking and killing the insulin-producing cells of the panks the pancreas reacting as if they are the invading viruses the insulin-producing cells are unable to

Produce ensuing resulting in type 1 diabetes there exists a special relationship between vitamin d deficiency and type 2 diabetes vitamin d directly acts on insulin producing cells in the pancreas to produce more insulin vitamin d reduces inflammation which is commonly present in patients with insulin resistance syndrome and type 2 diabetes vitamin d indirectly

Improves insulin production and it’s action by improving the level calcium inside the cells and it directly acts on the muscle and fat cells to improve insulin action by reducing insulin reserve their is a growing body of evidence that suggests that vitamin d may play a role in blood pressure regulation and heart health for example it is known that cases of high

Blood pressure increased during winter and in places where a decrease in available sunlight leads to lower vitamin d production but this role of vitamin d needs to be substantiated further fatty liver disease the inactive form of vitamin d is converted into its active form 25-hydroxyvitamin d which is used to perform its vital functions in the body the activity

Of vitamin d is further enhanced in the kidneys where 25-hydroxyvitamin d is converted to otter 1 comma 25 dihydroxy vitamin d the most potent form of vitamin d when someone develops parenchymal liver disease their liver can no longer efficiently convert a vitamin d into 25-hydroxyvitamin d leading to symptoms of vitamin d deficiency many factors katas can cause

Poo and kimmel liver disease including alcoholism viral hepatitis and several types of imp allergies the past research has shown that vitamin d is important for normal immune system and its deficiency is common in obese individuals obese persons have lower levels of adiponectin and vitamin d they also have increased levels of age il-6 and il-13 the add of the add

Birkins and markers of allergic disease seem to depend on the vitamin d deficiency seen more obese patients this leads to conclude that the increased risk for allergy in obesity may be mediated by vitamin d to some extent disease according to a recent research the supplements of vitamin d may help those with crohn’s disease overcome the fatigue and decreased muscle

Strength that are so common the disease vitamin d is getting a lot of attention in inflammatory bowel disease treatments depression exactly how vitamin d and depression may be linked is unclear vitamin d deficiency may result in depression or depression may increase risk for low vitamin d levels it has been found that women with moderate to severe depression

Hits substantial improvement in their symptoms of depression are after they received treatment for their vitamin d deficiency dental caries just as vitamin d is needed for healthy bones it is also necessary for babies oral health teeth start to form in utero so dental problems can start before they even erupt it’s long been known that calcium helps strengthen

Also reduce harmful brain activity there is no scientific consensus on a treatment protocol but it has been found that persons having multiple sclerosis with lower vitamin d d levels below 15 animals per liter human /l are more likely to develop new brain lesions and have a worse prognosis than those with higher level osteo near and osteoporosis vitamin d is key

To calcium absorption all people begin losing bone mass after they reach peak bone density at about 30 years of age the thicker the bones are at about age 30 the longer it takes to develop osteopenia or osteoporosis women are far more likely to develop stio peenya and osteoporosis than men because the loss of bone mass speeds up at the time of menopause due to

Hormonal changes osteopenia refers to a bone density that is lower than normal but not low enough to be classified as osteoporosis cancer a recent study found an association between low vitamin d levels and death from cancer among study participants with a history of the disease however no such association was found among participants without a history of cancer

This indicates that vitamin d may be important in cancer prognosis celiac disease vitamin d deficiency occurs in sixty four percent of men and seventy-one percent of women with celiac disease making it an extremely common problem in sally axe due to malabsorption vitamin d deficiency also leads to calcium deficiency because an individual needs adequate levels of

And subsequently vertebral fractures the prevalence of occult vertebral fractures has been reported to be as high as fifty one percent in persons with cystic fibrosis vertebral fractures result in chronic pain and kyphosis which further result in worsening of respiratory health obesity observational studies have consistently reported an increased risk of vitamin

D deficiency in those who are obese as obesity increases worldwide so does vitamin d deficiency which can compose a serious range of health issues erectile dysfunction vitamin d deficiency is one of several factors that associates with increased cardiovascular risk and therefore there is strong possibility that it may affect the penile vasculature adversely a

Research indicates that vitamin d associates with reduced risk of several non ver nonvascular contributing factors for erectile dysfunction therefore it concludes that vitamin d deficiency contributes to erectile dysfunction c is linked to increased airway reactivity lower lung function and worse asthma control vitamin d supplementation may improve asthma control

By blocking the cascade of inflammation causing proteins in the lung as well as increasing production of n of the protein in flook in 10 which has anti-inflammatory effect we have seen that adequate blood levels of vitamin d are essentially required by the body to function optimally it is a new it vitamin let us not ignore its value let us bring sunshine in our
