1. vitamin D3 intake in the morning or in the evening?
Many people ask themselves when is the right time to take vitamin D3. Taking it is independent of the time of day. However, vitamin D3 in the form of dietary supplements should always be taken with a meal, as the vitamin is fat-soluble. This improves the absorption.
2 What are the functions of vitamin D3 in the human organism?
- Strengthening of the immune system
- defence against pathogens
- strengthening of the musculature
- Promotion of bone growth
- Regulation of the calcium balance from the intestine (calcium-saving effect)
- Reduction of vascular diseases
- Protection against rickets (disturbance of the bone metabolism)
- Regulation of the mineral absorption
- Positive effect on muscle strength and balance
3. what happens if you overdose on vitamin D3?
An overdose of vitamin D3 cannot be caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. An excess of the vitamin cannot occur through normal diet either. An overdose is caused by an excessive intake of high-dose vitamin D3 preparations. A chronic vitamin D3 intoxication is caused by a long-term overdose of vitamin D3 preparations.
A vitamin D3 overdose is noticeable by different symptoms:
- Feeling of weakness
- extreme thirst
- increased urination
4. vitamin D3 risk groups
Vitamin D3 is produced by the body through exposure to the sun on the skin. Often a deficiency occurs when there is little or no exposure to the sun. Many people who work in an office or wear long clothes have the problem of suffering from a vitamin D3 deficiency. With clothing only about 5% of our skin is exposed to the sun. The risk group for vitamin D3 deficiency includes people over 65 years of age. From this age onwards, the production of vitamin D3 by the body itself decreases. The same applies to very old seniors. As they are restricted by their mobility, they are no longer able to stay in the sun for long periods. Furthermore, there are people with a sun allergy, which makes it practically impossible to absorb the UV rays. Others cannot expose themselves to the sun because of their religion, as a veil completely covers the body. People with a dark skin colour absorb less UV rays because the sun's rays are more strongly blocked by the increased melanin content in the skin.

5. conclusion: Vitamin D3 intake in the morning or in the evening?
The intake of vitamin D3 is independent of the time of day. However, since vitamin D3 is one of the fat-soluble vitamins, it is best taken with a meal to improve absorption. Vitamin D3 is available in the form of capsules and tablets. Both forms are easy to handle and quickly enter the circulation. However, vitamin D3 tablets are sold in pharmacies, which in many cases have been manufactured with artificial additives or abroad. Vitamin D3 capsules often contain only the active ingredient in a vegetable cellulose shell and can therefore be produced without fillers. In general, it should always be ensured that the product has been produced in Germany in order to guarantee a consistently high preparation quality.
