Apollo's Hegemony Vitamin D3 is a dietary supplement containing vitamin D3 in the amount of 2000 IU per capsule. 

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is, alongside vitamin D2, the main precursor to vitamin D. The relevant, biologically active compound, also called a vitamin-hormone, is calcitriol formed from vitamin D3 in the kidneys (1α, 25(OH)2 D3). Vitamin D plays important, multi-directional functions in the body. Its optimal level is important for maintaining optimal health.

The body is capable of skin synthesis of vitamin D, provided that a large surface of the skin is exposed to the sun for quite a considerable time, which is usually difficult to achieve.

Homeostasis of Calcium and phosphate metabolism
Normal bone mineralization depends on the presence of vitamin D. It is responsible for the proper calcium and phosphate metabolism, ensuring the proper absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D regulates bone tissue metabolism and influences the balance between bone formation and bone resorption. Therefore, vitamin D is essential for the proper structure and functioning of bone tissue.

Vitamin D and the nervous system
Vitamin D receptors are present in many tissues and organs of the body, including the central and peripheral nervous system. It is believed that vitamin D has neuroprotective effects. It proves to be beneficial in mild cognitive disorders, and its low level is conducive to an increased frequency of these disorders and Alzheimer's disease.

The effects of vitamin D deficiency
There are multitude health consequences of vitamin D deficiency – mainly disorders of bone metabolism, as well as an increase in the incidence of certain cancers (including colon and breast cancer), depression, cardiovascular diseases (hypertension, metabolic syndrome). Vitamin D, as a regulator of the immune response, affects the level of proinflammatory cytokines IL-4 and IL-10. Therefore, vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of developing autoimmune diseases.

In conclusion, Apollo's Hegemony Vitamin D3 is a dietary supplement, aimed at supplementing vitamin D deficiencies. The product is recommended for long-term supplementation as a pro-health prophylaxis, especially in case of insufficient body exposure to sunlight, during periods of tiredness, weakness, mood deterioration, the discomfort of the motor system.

Vitamin D

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Cholecalciferol

Information

Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is an organic chemical that belongs to the family of D vitamins. It is naturally found in fatty fish, fish oil, egg yolks, milk and dairy products. It is also synthesized in the human body. It is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol present in the keratinocytes of the spinous and the basal layers of the epidermis, and a pre-requisite for initiating this process is the action of 290-315 nm wavelength UVB radiation on the skin.

Cholecalciferol is a biologically inactive compound. In the body, it undergoes enzymatic hydroxylation – first in the liver, with the participation of 25-hydroxylase, when calcidiol is formed and secondly in the kidneys, where under the influence of 1-α-hydroxylase, calcidiol is converted into the final active form – calcitriol.

The most important role of vitamin D3 in the body is the regulation of calcium-phosphate metabolism, which directly affects normal skeletal mineralization. In addition, it is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, insulin secretion, as well as in some functions of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.

Cholecalciferol is the most popular form of vitamin D used in dietary supplements. Studies show that supplementation with vitamin D in this form most effectively and rapidly raises the level of 25 (OH) D3 – a metabolite that is a marker of the level of vitamin D in the body.

Dosage: according to RDI standards for individual age groups.
