1. when is the vitamin D level too low?
The daily vitamin D requirement for an adult person is about 20 micrograms. If the value is between 10 and 20 micrograms, this is called an acute vitamin D deficiency. If a vitamin D3 deficiency is suspected, it is best to consult a doctor and tell him/her about the symptoms. The doctor can determine whether an acute vitamin D3 deficiency is present by taking the patient's medical history. However, several D3 tests should be carried out over a fixed period of time to rule out acute fluctuations. A single test often represents only a snapshot of the vitamin D3 content in the body and can be made more precise by repeating it.
Two. What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D3 is particularly important for the health of our bones. It promotes bone growth and strengthens the immune system. Only if the vitamin is available in sufficient quantities can the body's defences be mobilised. Vitamin D3 is produced by the body through sunlight on the skin. Often a deficiency occurs when there is little or no exposure to the sun. With age, the body loses the ability to produce the vitamin effectively. Therefore, one should try to absorb some of the vitamin D3 through food. Good sources are sea fish, veal and eggs. Vegans and vegetarians often find it difficult to get enough vitamin D3 from food. It is therefore very sensible to take vitamin D3 in the form of food supplements. If you want to learn more about vitamin D3, take a look at this blog post.
3. vitamin D production using solar radiation
Vitamin D can be produced by the organism itself with the help of UV-B radiation from the sun. This process takes place on the skin. It is the site of the body's own vitamin D production. The sun vitamin is divided into two preliminary stages. First, the precursor provitamin D3 is formed. This is formed in the liver from cholesterol. Under the influence of UV-B radiation, this is then converted into previtamin D3. In the end, the converted vitamin D3 is present.
