The meaning of VITAMIN D
The fat-soluble vitamin D occupies a special position among the vitamins, because it can be formed in humans by exposure to sunlight (UVB light!). Vitamin D regulates the calcium and phosphate metabolism and thereby promotes the mineralization and hardening of the bone and is also involved in many other metabolic processes in the body (such as muscle metabolism, infection control). Vitamin D comes in two forms, collectively referred to as calciferols. There is a distinction between the vegetable vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and the animal vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). However, both forms of vitamin are equally effective (equivocal).2)

 

Research results in recent years have now shown the connection between vitamin D supply and the function of the immune system and provide evidence of a role of vitamin D for many essential metabolic processes to ensure a normal immune defense. Especially in winter, the body's own vitamin D synthesis comes to a virtual standstill. Vitamin D deficiency is a real problem in Europe, because by 50-70% of the population, the vitamin D blood level is lowered, since the UV-B radiation in the northern hemisphere is lowered from October to March.

Reference values for VITAMIN D
Vitamin D is given in
µ (micrograms) or in international units (IU). 1 µ corresponds to 40 IU or 1 IU = 0.025 µ. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published in 2012 a new "Scientific Opinion" for the safe intake of vitamin D with maximum limits of 100 µ / day, which would be 4,000 IU for persons over 11 years, children under 11 years 50 µ / day 2,000 IU. US studies suggest a recommended intake of 1,500 to 2,000 IU for adults and seniors Vitamin D per day . The DGE (German Society for Nutrition e.V.) states as new D-A-CH reference value 20 µ vitamin D per day (that is 800 I.U.).1)
The trend is clearly towards higher vitamin D intake recommendations.
