Vitamin D2 1000 I.E. vegan Dr. Wolz
Vitamin D has been used to prevent rickets in infants for 70 years. However, recent research has shown that vitamin D is important to the whole body, not just to bones. Almost every other person in Germany has a vitamin D deficiency, because, for example, too little food is eaten which is rich in vitamin D such as fish or liver.
Our body is able to produce vitamin D itself using the sun (UVB radiation); this is the reason vitamin D is also termed the sun vitamin. Our lifestyle does not seem to be suitable though for maintaining adequately high levels of vitamin D in our blood.
In winter sunshine (Germany) is too low to produce enough vitamin D in the skin. Older skin, too, is no longer able, even in summer, to manufacture as much vitamin D as young people's skin. Many young people and children already have a deficiency of vitamin D. Vitamin D, which is provided by food or also formed in the skin assisted by sunshine, is not converted to the active vitamin D until in the liver and kidney, it is then also called "hormone D". Adequate provision of vitamin D is vital for the body as the functioning of so many systems, organs, muscles, bones and tissue is subject to a good level of vitamin D.
