- In case of inflammatory bowel diseases – the action of vitamin D3 significantly reduces pain and improves quality of life (research conducted on 965 patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis) with an average age of 44 years over 5 years)1.
- Favorable effect on immunity – research shows that vitamin D3 in addition to having an important function in maintaining homeostasis and constant concentration of calcium and phosphate in plasma plays a very important role in modulation of innate and adaptive immune responses2.
- In osteoporosis – the action of vitamin D3 significantly reduces the risk of bone fractures3.

DO YOU KNOW?
Vitamin D is in fact a hormone, but for historical reasons it is called a vitamin.
It has been detected in the UK due to an increased number of cases of rickets. Sir Edward Mellanby has come to the conclusion that rickets could be a disease caused by vitamin deficiency in the body. Since the English diet consisted mostly of oatmeal, Sir Mellanby decided to feed his dogs with oatmeal and kept them away from sunlight. The dogs developed rickets, and Sir Mellanby tried to cure rickets with cod liver oil. He wrongly assumed vitamin A was responsible for healing rickets, and Sir Collum later discovered it was a newly discovered factor he called vitamin D.
