Vitamin D

As humans, we have the ability to create proteins and enzymes that help us live strong, healthy lives. In order to produce these proteins and enzymes, our bodies usually need the aid of co-factors like vitamins or minerals.

Sometimes there are vitamins that our bodies need that either we naturally produce a low amount of or we don’t synthesize at all. These vitamins and minerals we can either receive from our diet or from supplementary sources. 

Vitamin D is a vitamin that our bodies do produce, but in such low quantities that we have to supplement it either from our diet or from exposure to UV light from the sun.

What is Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is responsible for a lot of good things that go on in our bodies. 

First of all, let's talk about what a “vitamin” even is. A vitamin is an organic compound that is often vitally necessary for good health.

What makes vitamins unique is that they are more than just health-boosting supplements, but instead are intrinsic parts of how we can live a healthy, strong life.

Vitamins are either fat-soluble or water-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins means it dissolves in water which makes them easier to absorb into the tissues of the body and metabolized and excreted more rapidly than fat-soluble vitamins.  Fat-soluble vitamins dissolve in fat vs water, and are best taken with food containing some fat. Taking too many fat-soluble vitamins, beyond the recommended daily dose, can result in storing them in our fat reserves, which is not ideal in the long-term. Vitamin D is unique because it is a vitamin that must be supplemented through diet, however, our bodies have a unique way of producing vitamin D in small amounts naturally from cholesterol by simple exposure to the sun.

Our bodies create vitamin D by producing a precursor protein called 7-Dehydrocholesterol, or 7-DHC. This protein is photosynthetically converted to vitamin D by the interaction of UV rays on our exposed skin. Many foods in America are also fortified with vitamin D to help Americans meet their intake of this often needed vitamin.

How Does Vitamin D Provide Stress Support?

R3SET supplements were formulated to support the 3 systems most impacted by stress: the nervous, endocrine and immune system. Vitamin D has a robust amount of health benefits and is vital for normal human development and maintenance of good health and strong bones. Its main source of stress support for the body is it’s support in our immune system. Vitamin D metabolizing enzymes and vitamin D receptors are present in many cell types including various immune cells such as antigen-presenting-cells, T cells, B cells and monocytes. In vitro data show that, in addition to modulating innate immune cells, vitamin D also promotes a more tolerogenic immunological status. In vivo data from animals and from human vitamin D supplementation studies have shown beneficial effects of vitamin D on immune function, in particular in the context of autoimmunity, and on the regulation of inflammatory responses, as well as regulatory mechanisms connected to autoimmune diseases particularly in type 1 diabetes mellitus.

Thus, low vitamin D can have system-wide adverse effects on your body, and could lead to a less effective immune defense system, adding to the stress response.

As a supplement, vitamin D can be taken with a variety of different minerals, vitamins, and adaptogens. While your ealthcare provider should always be the one to inform you of what supplements you should be taking, it is generally safe to take vitamin D as a daily supplement in the amount recommended within other regimens you may be on.

What Else Can Vitamin D Be Used For?

Vitamin D  can help support your immune system as well as may positively impact your cardiovascular system.

Average Dosing and Side Effects

It may seem surprising, but despite its incredible benefits, too much vitamin D can be a bad thing. Our bodies have a built-in mechanism for making sure we never naturally synthesize too much vitamin D for this very reason. Your skin actually stops creating vitamin D before it reaches unsafe levels. 

The amount of vitamin D you should be taking in from your diet or supplements does change throughout life and current thinking is that the average adult does not need more than 100 mcg per day.

Excessive vitamin D can cause nausea, confusion, and muscle weakness. If you experience any of these symptoms you should reach out to your Healthcare provider.
