Vitamin D3 100,000iu/mL injectable, 10mL
Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) is the name given to a vitally important group of micro-nutrients. When activated, vitamin D becomes a potent steroid hormone; switching our genes on or off, and instructing our cells to what work to do. The effects are varied and profound. It is structurally similar to steroids such as testosterone, cholesterol, and cortisol. The term "vitamin D" refers to several different forms of this vitamin. Two forms are important in humans: ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3). Vitamin D2 is synthesized by plants. Vitamin D3 is synthesized by humans in the skin when it is exposed to ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays from sunlight. Foods may be fortified with vitamin D2 or D3, although humans should not rely on synthetic food fortification as a good source of vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 has a variety of health benefits, which include blood sugar control; immune function optimization; and blood pressure improvement. It can also be used in the treatment of chronic inflammation and obesity. Needles and syringes for injection are ordered separately.
