In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.
Apollo's Hegemony Vitamin D3 5000 IU is a dietary supplement containing vitamin D3 suspended in olive oil. Vitamin D3 comprehensively supports the health of the entire body. It plays a particularly important role in the osteoarticular, nervous, and immune systems.
Vitamin D3 – a fat-soluble compound that helps to maintain a good condition of bones, prevents minor viral infections, and may also protect the nervous system.
People living in temperate latitudes not always have access to sunlight. This access is particularly limited in the winter months, but there are also cloudy summers, thus hindering the possibilities of spending time outdoors. The sun's rays are necessary to maintain the proper condition of the body, as their presence is crucial in the synthesis of endogenous vitamin D3. Fortunately, some preparations can fulfill this requirement.
The well-known effect of vitamin D3 is conditioning the proper structure of the skeletal system. It results from the fact that vitamin D3 helps to absorb calcium from the gastrointestinal tract and also facilitates its incorporation into the bone trabecula. Besides, it inhibits the excretion of calcium ions along with urine, thus significantly reducing its loss.
More and more is being said about the alleged effect of vitamin D3 on immunity. Scientists have observed that the regular supply of cholecalciferol resulted in a significant reduction in the incidence of seasonal infections of the upper respiratory tract. Thus, vitamin D3 seems to be a good preventive measure against minor viral infections.
Recently, an increasing number of people are interested in neurosupplementation. As far as cholecalciferol was shown to inhibit the so-called excitotoxicity, i.e., the destructive effect of calcium cations on neurons, it can be also part of such neurological support. This is due to the down-regulation of calcium channels. What is more, vitamin D3 has a significant impact on well-being and may help in combating mood disorders.
The primary indication for supplementing vitamin D3 is the fall-winter period when exposure to sunlight is significantly limited.
The preparation is especially recommended for people who may be at risk of vitamin D3 deficiency, i.e., women in the postmenopausal period or the elderly. It can also be successfully used by everyone who wants to introduce an element of the prevention of diseases of the osteoarticular system or support their immunity and health of the nervous system.

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, 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.
