Product information
Vitamin D3 is an active factor against rickets. It is a regulator of calcium-phosphorus exchange and ensures proper mineralization and normal development of bones and teeth. Cholecalciferol, a natural form of vitamin D, is produced in the skin by exposure to sunlight. Compared to vitamin D2, it differs in that its activity is higher than 25%. It is necessary for the normal function of the thyroid gland. It affects the intestines, kidneys and bone system. It plays an important role in the absorption of calcium and phosphates from the intestine, the transport of mineral salts and the calcification of bones, and also regulates the excretion of calcium and phosphates through the kidneys. The concentration of calcium ions affects a number of important biochemical processes that determine the maintenance of the tone of skeletal muscles, the transmission of nerve impulses, and the blood coagulation process. Vitamin D also participates in the functioning of the immune system by affecting the production of lymphokines. In the period of rapid development of the child, lack of vitamin D in food, weakening of its absorption, lack of calcium, lack of exposure to sunlight cause rickets; in adults, it can cause osteomalacia, tetanus symptoms in pregnant women, and disruption of bone hardening processes in newborns. The need for vitamin D increases in menopausal women as a result of the development of osteoporosis, often due to hormonal disorders.
An aqueous solution of vitamin D3 is better absorbed than an oily solution. In premature babies, the absorption of vitamins in the form of a fat solution is impaired because the production of bile and its entry into the duodenum are insufficient. After oral administration, cholecalciferol is absorbed in the small intestine. It undergoes metabolism in the liver and kidneys. The half-life of cholecalciferol is several days. The drug easily passes through the placental barrier. Penetrates into breast milk. It is excreted from the body with urine and faeces.
